Popular streamer Dr Disrespect hit a major Twitch milestone on February 10th, and celebrated the momentous occasion in a way that is fitting for The Two-Time Champion. 

Dr Disrespect is one of the most watched channels on Twitch, entertaining viewers with his explosive 80s action hero persona, and captivating them with his stream production quality.

The Two-Time Champion added another achievement under his belt when he passed a major milestone in his career on February 10th. And the personality celebrated in the most fitting way possible.

Doc celebrates Twitch milestone

The popular streamer hit a major milestone on Twitch, surpassing over 4 million followers to his channel. To celebrate, he tweeted out that it was actually “billions” and that the Amazon-owned company sent him a trophy made out of precious metals.

“We just hit 4 Billion followers on Twitch,” he said, alongside a picture of an award. “They also sent us the trophy already… it’s made of rhodium, platinum, with a solid iridium base.”

Doc went live on his broadcast shortly after, where he acknowledged the important moment in his career. Flashing the trophy in the background, he then broke into a song and dance for his viewers.

The Twitch personality then joked with his audience that he would be quitting streaming if his celebration tweet didn’t have enough retweets within the hour. “If this doesn’t have more than 250,000 likes, I’m done. I’m done streaming. Like I’m literally selling the arena!” he said.

As the broadcast continued, he read a donation from a fan which said, “You’re the hardest working streamer on the platform. Congrats on the 4 billion followers. Very well deserved!”

However, the Two-Time used the moment to take shots at other streamers. “Oh, I thought the hardest working streamer is just someone that streams for 20 hours a day. Isn’t that like the norm? Or plays Fortnite all day, every day,” he exclaimed.

Guy Beahm originally debuted the Dr Disrespect character in 2010 on YouTube, but put him aside to work for Sledgehammer Games in 2011, where he was promoted to level designer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.

However, since launching his streaming career, he’s become one of the most subscribed and watched channels on Twitch. In 2019, he also announced that he had signed a deal with The Walking Dead creators to make a TV show about his persona, proving that he continues to be one of streaming’s hottest commodities.

Ninja shocks Valorant star with huge donation after Twitch refund scam

Chargebacks are a Twitch streamer’s worst nightmare, as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins knows it all too well, so when he saw Valorant star ‘AverageJonas’ get scammed out of over $5,000, he knew he had to step up and help.

There’s few Twitch scams more infuriating than chargeback scams. When you have avid viewers donate to your stream, it’s a wonderful feeling.

However, some viewers do it maliciously, with the intent of taking, not giving. After donating hundreds, or even thousands of dollars, viewers dispute the charge with PayPal or their bank, saying they were hacked and didn’t actually donate the money.

The money then goes back to the donator, and the Twitch streamer is left without the donations, and most of the time, also has to pay a fine on top.

That’s exactly what happened to AverageJonas ⁠— a Valorant Twitch star with over 130,000 followers. He had a viewer refund $5,400 worth of donations, which ended up costing the streamer $5,800 after accounting for transfer fees.

“I have received over $5,400 in several donations from one person on Twitch which have all been refunded even though donations are supposedly non-refund. To top it off, I have been personally charged $400+ in refund fees from PayPal,” Jonas said on Twitter.

“This person used me and my community to gain clout and other benefits by acting like an extremely wealthy and giving human being. The person also pretended like the refunds were a mistake.”

Fortunately, Ninja got wind of the fellow Valorant streamer’s woes.

After all, Jonas is one of Valorant’s biggest content creators, and Ninja is slowly working his way to the top of the pro scene. With all of Jonas’ informational content, it’s the least Ninja could do to put his fandom to use.

Ninja replied to Jonas’ tweet with a simple “fixed.” What he meant by that was he donated AverageJonas $5,800, to cover not only the Twitch donations from the user, but the PayPal fees as well.

Jonas was shocked: “Dude thank you so much you’re such a legend omfg.”

It’s a big win for Jonas, however, it highlights a much bigger issue with Twitch donations. If Ninja hadn’t caught wind of the streamer’s troubles, it’s likely nothing would have been done.

Chargebacks are still a big issue, and there’s nothing you can really do about it as a streamer if PayPal or Twitch don’t step in ⁠— like what happened in Jonas’ case.

However, now he can go back to doing what he does best ⁠— sharing Sova line-ups for every Valorant player to learn.
