Dr Disrespect can’t believe Marshmello got a Fortnite skin before Ninja and Tfue

Twitch streamer Marshmello themed event that is taking place on February 2 in-game. Players will have the chance to boogie at Pleasant Park while the DJ hosts a show.

However, the Doc was not happy with his chat pushing him to look at the new additions to the Battle Royale game that are based on the popular musician, questioning why popular streamers like Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney haven’t had the privilege yet. 

A Marshmello spray will also be available to fans

The Doc said: “Don’t tell me this guy (Marshmello) got an outfit (skin),” before clicking on to the store page, seeing the skin for himself and bursting into laughter. “And it has begun. Ladies and Gentlemen, the world of high-end agencies has started – well, it had already started as you can tell with the rise of Fortnite.”

Presumably the Doc is referring to the increase of ‘celebrity’ engagement with video games, rather than embracing the video game community’s own celebrities – like Dr Disrespect himself.

After a few seconds of silence, Doc added: “Wow,” before shaking his head in disbelief and laughing again. “Oh, this industry cracks me up sometimes ladies and gentlemen.”

However, the Doc wasn’t finished there, going on to further question Epic about their reluctance to reward top community players with in-game items. 

He continued his rant, stating: “Let’s just be straight up and honest, like if Tfue doesn’t get one or if Ninja doesn’t get one at this point then it’s like ‘Epic what the hell are you doing?'”

The Doc also added: “At this point, If I’m not seeing a Ninja skin in this game or a Tfue skin in this game or a Daequan skin, then come on man. Those are the top community players. Where’s the NickMercs (items)?”

Despite making it one of his main genres of games, the Doc has seemingly fallen out of love with Battle Royale games.

After uninstalling PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds yet again, the two-time returned to the game in a bid to complete his challenge of winning a solo game in each of the three popular battle royale games – Fortnite, Blackout and PUBG.

However, the Doc messed up and lost a final one vs one in PUBG, causing him to lose his mind and – once again – remove the game from his PC.

Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
