Twitch star Dr Disrespect opened up to his audience during broadcast on December 2nd, and gave the perfect analogy about the struggles streamers face with finding content.

Dr Disrespect is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, as his insane production values and explosive 80s action star persona has made him an icon on the platform.

The personality is having one hell of a year, winning streamer of the year at the Esports Awards in November, and becoming the most subbed channel in October.

However, during his latest stream, the popular personality got real with his audience, and explained why streaming has its ups and downs as well by giving a thought-provoking analogy.

Dr Disrespect explains what it’s like to be a streamer

The Two-Time had just started his Monday stream when a fan in his chat posted about how content in the gaming industry right now is a “snooze fest,” which caught the attention of the streamer.

“It really is a god d*mn snooze fest, man! We’ve seen it so many times. I’ve seen the trends. We are riding a god d*mn wave, baby! Sometimes you just might be in-between sets. You might be out there and it might be a little flat!” he exclaimed.

The Twitch star then continued. “Do you wrap it up? Do you call it right there? Do you head to shore? Or do you wait it out?” he asked, explaining how streamers have to deal with downtime when there aren’t any good games out.

Doc then expanded on his surfing comparison and exclaimed, “Or do you risk being out there with the sharks? Waiting it out. Knowing that there is a bigger set coming in. A bigger wave to ride. That’s way I look at streaming!”

The popular personality then stated that there is currently nothing to watch on Twitch. “I’ve seen things dip. And I have a hard time going to Twitch right now. Let’s watch the content. That’s because there ain’t none!” he screamed.

The Two-Time stated that it was important the industry “keeps it together,” particularly streaming personalities who have to keep riding it out until the next trend or big game comes along.

While Dr Disrespect is known for his over the top personality, he’s also an industry veteran that has a lot of experience with the ups and downs of gaming releases, making his speech full of insight as to what it’s like to be a streamer.

As of the time of this article, the popular personality has over 3.8 million followers on Twitch, and continues to dominate in subscriptions as his brand of entertainment connects with many.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
