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.
