Twitch sensation Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm reacted in typically eccentric fashion after receiving a huge $2,500 donation whilst streaming Apex Legends.

Dr Disrespect is known for his hyperbolic behaviour on and off stream, often exchanging banter with other creators, such as Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins. He is also one of the most successful content creators on Twitch, with over 3.3 million followers.

The Doc was streaming Respawn Entertainment’s Apex Legends, the Titanfall-esque battle royale, on March 29, when he was notified of a huge donation by Twitch, and proceeded to react in the way only the Doc could.

Dr DisrespectThe Doc has been streaming Apex Legends almost exclusively since its February release.

Donations are very common for large Twitch streamers, but usually range from about $5 to $20, nowhere near the incredible $2,500 donated to Dr Disrespect.

The Doc was coming off a win in Apex Legends, playing with Krafty and TSM Viss, when the donation came through. “Woah, woah, woah woah, woah!” he said. “Did you mean $2.50?”

“Twenty-five hundred dollar donation, ladies and gentlemen,” he continued, before yelling: “Two thousand five hundred dollars do you not listen to me! Twenty five hundred dollar donation says, doctor, it’s good to see you wreck these fools on the battle royale scene, keep the fight going.”

The Doc signs off by yelling some more, before going on to say that he believes this week has been the most incredible of his streaming career in terms of donations from his fan base. 

Dr Disrespect has experienced another growth in popularity thanks to the popularity of Apex Legends, and his often eccentric behaviour whilst playing it, as well as his natural gaming talent.

Putting the jokes to one side, the incredible reaction form the Doc goes to show how much he appreciates the donation, and his dedication to his character on stream.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
