Iconic Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect very briefly went out of character during his August 30 stream, explaining to his viewers how he achieved his success with an incredible speech.

Guy Beahm started his Dr Disrespect character in 2009 and 2010, but shelved the idea after finally getting his dream job in game development with Sledgehammer Games, first as a Community Manager and later a Level Designer.

He returned to his Dr Disrespect alter-ego in 2016, and quickly ascended up the ranks on Twitch, becoming one of the biggest names on the platform.

Twitter: Guy BeahmGuy Beahm is the man behind the iconic Dr Disrespect character.

But, when a viewer explained to him that they were suffering from depression and anxiety, the Doc gave an inspiring speech about the dark times in his own life.

“I’ll tell you this right now, three and a half years ago, before the Two-Time stepped into the arena on Twitch, the Doctor [was] unemployed, looking for a job in the video gaming industry,” Beahm began.

“Little baby assassin less than a year old, living in a one and a half bedroom apartment, on a corner where you could just open up the blinds and see the drug dealing. And that was a tough time.”

“And then we decided to jump into this,” the Doc concluded, “I’m telling you right now, it’s just a temporary phase, so attack! And go out there, and do you. That’s the most important part about it.”

Dr Disrespect’s leap of faith to go full-time with streaming was a risk, but one that has certainly paid off, as he now sits as the eighth-most followed streamer on Twitch.

Despite his advice that people “do you”, it is, in fact, Guy Beahm’s Dr Disrespect character that earned him his success, as he stood out from the crowd of other streamers.

Also impressive is his level of production value, which is rivaled by very few on the platform. But, his words of wisdom go beyond just streaming on Twitch.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
