Dr Disrespect finally apologizes for calling mobile fans “not real gamers”

Dr Disrespect has finally apologized for his infamous 2019 tweet suggesting anyone who plays games on mobile phones “aren’t real gamers,” more than 14 months after the controversial comment… but was he really sorry?

The Doc has built a career on barbed comments, poking fun at fellow streamers like Shroud and TimTheTatman, as well as the gaming industry as a whole. Recently, he even took aim at the scene’s “repetitive” marketing after Apex Legends dropped its highly-anticipated Season 6 trailer.

The newly-minted YouTube superstar was forced to roll back one of his most controversial takes, however, after he paired up with Fnatic’s Tanmay ‘Sc0ut’ Singh, a professional PUBG Mobile player, during his recent August 22 stream.

Dr Disrespect and Sc0ut were enjoying a series of duo-queue matches on Warzone when the Doc’s Champions Club reminded him of his 14-month old tweet. The Two-Time, seemingly a little sheepish about his comment, apologized to Fnatic’s mobile star soon after.

“Not sure if you ever saw my tweet…” Dr Disrespect said. “I just want to get ahead of the controversy about me saying that mobile gamers aren’t real gamers. It was a spur of the moment thing. I just want to make sure that I get ahead of it.”

Sc0ut didn’t seem phased; he didn’t even confirm if he had seen the comment. Instead, the Doc’s Aug. 22 stream partner replied the tweet was “completely fine”.

In true Dr Disrespect fashion, however, the YouTube star soon cast a small shadow of doubt over whether he actually had changed his mind on how “real” mobile gamers are since mid-last year.

One of the Doc’s fans asked him in a message, “Are you sorry?” The streaming star paused for only a second before making a declaration that seemed to totally go against his earlier apology: “Sorry for what? I don’t apologize.”

He did offer up an explanation behind why he’d never been converted by handheld gaming, however. “The one thing that bothers me, with mobile, is I’m putting my thumbs on the screen. I’m taking up space… I’d rather have [them] on the side.”

The related Sc0ut segment begins at 2:23:47 in the broadcast video below.

Dr Disrespect has been back to his imperious best on YouTube since his shock Twitch ban; he’s been drawing in hundreds of thousands of viewers every stream. The star hit more than 105,000 during his double-up broadcast with Sc0ut.

He’s also been doing more and more “team-ups” since his triumphant return. The Two-Time recently played with YouTube king PewDiePie on August 14. The pair went head-to-head in Fall Guys in front of more than 340k viewers.

James Charles slays Kylie Jenner’s Halloween makeup with fierce look

Social media mogul and reality tv star Kylie Jenner is known as much for her lipstick line as she is for her over-the-top Halloween costumes, and one of her 2020 looks absolutely “killed” the competition — in part due to the talents of James Charles.

As soon as Halloween rolls around — even during the current health crisis — fans look toward to the crazy costumes that celebrities will pull off, which is almost always a visual treat due to their top-tier budgets and friendships with special effects artists.

Kylie Jenner is one such celeb, who has turned heads across the net for her rendition of a Barbie doll and Ariel from the Little Mermaid — not to mention the time she dressed up as a woodland fairy.

However, her latest costume has taken a more “wild” turn, as inspired by her brand-new Cheetah-themed makeup collection.

Kylie Jenner has completely floored fans throughout the years with her creative Halloween costumes, one of which was a classic fairy.

Partnering up with YouTuber-slash-makeup artist James Charles, Kylie decided to go full-on big cat, with Charles lending his own talents to deliver some stunning special effects.

Using tissue and liquid latex, James created three fake slash marks on her left cheek, as though Kylie had been scratched by the very Cheetah from her makeup collection.

After applying the rest of her makeup — also using the Cheetah collection — Charles completed the look by using black and red eyeshadows, as well as fake blood, to create a surprisingly realistic facial injury.

It’s clear that no cat scratch is going to get Kylie down, though, as evidenced by how amazingly fierce the entire ensemble came together, which the two showed off in a no-nonsense Instagram photo.

As for Kylie’s actual Halloween costume on the official holiday, she isn’t giving out any hints, preferring to keep it a surprise on the actual day (even though James tried his best to get her to spill the beans).
