Dr Disrespect makes outrageous demand to ‘Elon Musk’ after PUBG kill

Streaming sensation PUBG.

Initially released in March of 2017, PlayerUnkown’s Battlegrounds is a popular Battle Royale title that not only helped popularize the genre as a whole, but also helped Dr Disrespect reach new heights with his comedic Twitch streams.

Kicking it old school and streaming PUBG for the first time in a good while, the Doc received a donation from a viewer impersonating Elon Musk. Rolling with the bit, he took things to the next level and put out a laughable demand.

Early into a match, Dr Disrespect received a donation from the imposter Elon Musk which read: “Hi, this is Elon Musk again. Just wanted to remind you to buy my flamethrower.”

Evolving the situation into a whole bit, he immediately responded with a proposition. “How about I run this guy over for you Elon? I know you’re a billionaire. If I hit this guy on this bike you’ve gotta donate $25 mil.”

It took him three attempts to run the poor player over but the Doc eventually found the kill, following up with three simple words for Musk, “you owe me.”

With an estimated net worth of 20.2 billion USD, the mustachioed streamer jokes that $25 million is just a “small figure” to the CEO of SpaceX.

The amusing occurrence came up throughout a September 24 stream where Dr Disrespect was trying to tick off wins in his unique ‘Triple Threat Challenge.’ 

A regular novelty within his community, the challenge see’s Doc trying to claim victory in three unique Battle Royale games. From Fortnite to PUBG and Blackout on PlayStation 4, Doc was committed to chasing more than just a single chicken dinner.

PlayerUnknown's BattlegroundsHow long has it been since you earned your last chicken dinner in PUBG?

While he was unsuccessful in his venture to find the three Battle Royale wins this week, the leader of the Champions Club has been tearing things up lately with ridiculous displays of skill in both Gears 5 and FIFA.

It’ll be amusing to see if anything comes from this hilarious demand. No stranger to the spotlight, perhaps we’ll see Elon Musk dual-streaming with the back to back Blockbuster Champion in the near future.

Tayler Holder responds to claims he stole Corey La Barrie’s merch design

TikTok star Tayler Holder is being accused by critics of stealing a design from late YouTuber Corey La Barrie, which he will use on his own upcoming line of merchandise.

For those unaware, Corey La Barrie was a fairly popular YouTuber who tragically passed away on May 10 due to a fatal car accident.

Fellow YouTuber and tattoo artist Daniel Silva was also involved in the accident, and was driving the car during the time of the crash. According to reports from TMZ, Silva was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, and was later arrested on murder charges.

In wake of La Barrie’s passing, it seems that TikToker Tayler Holder has chosen to use the YouTuber’s slogan and logo for his own upcoming merchandise line — which has left some fans of La Barrie quite unhappy.

The logo and slogan in question are an important reminder to La Barrie’s viewers; the slogan reads “Under Appreciated,” with the letters “nde” crossed out, so that it reads “U R Appreciated.”

The logo features a pair of angel wings above the slogan — a design that Holder has also tattooed on his forearm.

After advertising the upcoming line on his Instagram stories, Holder was met with a wave of backlash from fans who accused him of outright stealing La Barrie’s design.

However, Holder argued that he partnered up with La Barrie’s family to produce the upcoming merchandise, contrary to critics’ initial accusations.

“Corey has been a very, very good friend of mine for a few years now,” Holder explained. “I always thought the message behind the ‘Under Appreciated / U R Appreciated’ was so, so powerful. With him passing away, I wanted to carry that on.”

That’s not all; Holder claimed that he would be donating a percentage of the line’s profits to Corey’s foundation, and further explained that the merch also includes all of the tattoos on his forearm — not just Corey’s U R Appreciated logo.

“I want to make it clear that this is very meaningful to me, and I partnered with Corey and his family,” he continued. “I would never, ever just take something like this and make it my own.”
