Twitch star Dr Disrespect tried his hand at Microsoft’s Gears of War 5 during his September 11 stream, and a major issue that interrupted his broadcast left the Two-Time exploding with rage.

Doc has been known to get angry from time to time when a game doesn’t go his way, and has even uninstalled games like Apex Legends as a result of what he thinks was bad game design.

But during his stream of the recently released Gears of War 5 which came out on September 6, the Twitch star blew up when a recurring issue interfered with his game and made the whole experience collapse before he could get into it.

Dr Disrespect lost his cool

While streaming the first person shooter, the Two-Time became frustrated when the Xbox notification pop up for game invites kept appearing on his screen, as many players began to spam him.

“Xbox Game Bar is fucking up so much. I’m going to break something man. Stupid ass Xbox App!” Doc said, mimicking the sound of a chainsaw as he stressed his words in anger.

The Twitch star then took to Microsoft’s website where he went through tutorials and guides to try to turn off the notifications from showing up in his game. He soon became overwhelmed with frustration as the solution continued to elude him.

“Why do I have to do this? This is f*ckin’ terrible man. This is so…” he trailed off, as he raised his hands above his head, and clenched his fists in pure anger and frustration. “This is stupid!”

Deep down the rabbit hole of trying to disable the notification, the Two-Time started to become increasingly irritable and hostile towards his chat, after many had made suggestions to fix the issue that didn’t work.

“How do we turn off notifications in-game? How!?” Doc screamed before he turned to his chat and read a specific user’s suggestion. “I’m going to start banning. I’m following it. If you’re wrong, and I can’t access that, you’re out of the Champions Club. Simple as that!” he warned.

Doc finally exploded

After numerous tries to get the notifications to stop showing up, Doc absolutely lost it when his last attempt failed.

“You f*ckin’… You gotta be f*ckin’ kidding me!” the Two-Time screamed in absolute rage as he punched his desk. “You gotta be kidding me!”

The Twitch star then threw both his hands up and walked off stream as he finally had enough, admitting defeat to his Xbox Notification issue.

Despite his epic meltdown, Dr Disrespect’s rage is par the course for the Twitch star, as he often loses his cool during broadcasts.

As of time of this article, he remains as one of the top streamers on the platform with over 3.6 million followers.

Fans rally as Sykkuno, Dream, and more are snubbed by Twitter Verified

On December 2, Twitter rolled out a huge mass verification, where many accounts of top gamers, streaming personalities and more were finally verified after a rather long wait. But some fans were left frustrated when Twitter seemed to gloss over popular creators like Sykkuno, Dream, and CallMeCarson.

Verification on Twitter is often regarded as a huge achievement for rising creators. That little blue tick is generally a marker that someone is making it big, leading to frequent campaigns led by fans for their favorite creators to be granted verified status.

Twitter decided to grant several wishes all at once on December 2 when they verified a huge number of accounts in one go. One such account was that of Corpse Husband, a YouTuber who has been on the platform for a few years, but experienced an unprecedented surge in popularity this year following the Among Us hype.

Corpse Husband is a wildly popular YouTuber who skyrocketed to fame for his Among Us content, although he also narrates True Horror stories and creates music.

But not everyone was celebrating, as among the chaos of fans and creators rejoicing at their new-found verification, some big names were left behind.

Popular streamer Sykkuno trended on the site with the hashtag ‘VerifySykkuno’ as fans vented their frustration about the snub. “Do it, he deserves it,” one fan wrote.

Fellow streamer Valkyrae tweeted a message in support of the internet campaign, which Sykkuno even retweeted from his account.

Other popular creators that found themselves snubbed by the Twitter Verified account included Minecraft YouTuber Dream, and comedy YouTuber CallMeCarson, who each tweeted their own tongue-in-cheek messages calling out Twitter.

Amid the disarray, instead of verifying YouTuber Karl Jacobs’ account, they accidentally verified the wrong Karl Jacobs with just 200 followers, leading to an onslaught of replies from fellow creators finding the bizarre situation hilarious, including Mr Beast.

While this was one of the biggest verification sprees recently, there is no doubt that another one will be right around the corner.

Fans of the huge creators who were snubbed this time around may be in for a slightly longer wait, but with creators like Corpse Husband getting that coveted blue tick, people are getting their hopes up for the next line of verified creators.
