Speaking to his viewers on August 5, Dr Disrespect revealed what would make him go to Mixer and leave Twitch behind. 

“Let’s say a move to the Doc to Mixer… let’s just like theoretically say it right… the number would have to be crazy,” the popular streamer said.

Dr Disrespect is one of Twitch’s biggest names, so it would make sense he would ask for a large sum if he changed platforms.

“Like, I’m talking… I don’t know what Ninja got, but it’s got to be at Ninja’s level or higher. I mean it’s just a bigger, stronger brand,” he added before bursting out laughing.

Ever since Ninja announced he would be streaming exclusively on Mixer, other streamers have weighed in on what it would take for them to jump ship. In a since-deleted clip, former Overwatch League pro Dafran said that he would make the move for $30,000 a month.

“I don’t give a fuck what platform I stream on, dude,” the DPS star said. “Whatever place makes me more money I’ll stream on.”

Ninja may not be the only big name headed to Mixer either if H3H3’s Ethan Klein is to be believed.

“They are not going to last, they aren’t going to make it. Because they are short sighted, and don’t know how to keep their talent. Because they are so cheap. Which is shocking, because they are owned by the richest man that has ever walked this earth. They are so rich, he wipes his ass with $100 bills,” the podcast host regarding Twitch failing to pay their content creator’s enough.

“I have spoken to one of the top five streamers on Twitch, and I’m not going to say his name because it was a private conversation. But he told me that they pinch his ass hard too. And he’s so over it, and doesn’t understand it. Now he’s thinking about going to Mixer too, if he can close a deal with them,” Klein revealed.

Ninja announced his controversial Mixer move on August 1.

Whether Klein is talking about Dr Disrespect or not remains up in the air. One thing is for sure though, and that’s the stream wars are only just getting started.

We may not know who the next Twitch star to jump ship to Mixer will be, but it will be interesting to watch and see what happens.


Nessa Barrett hits back at attacks telling her to kill herself

TikToker Nessa Barrett has, once again, had to hit out against some of the trolls who harass her online, after their bullying took a sinister turn. 

Barrett has had a difficult few days after becoming unwittingly involved in the Jaden Hossler and Mads Lewis ‘diss track’ drama.

After hinting at a collaboration with Hossler on Twitter, she was accused of ‘shading’ his ex girlfriend and former friend, Lewis by hiding a range of Twitter replies referring to her.

However, judging by her recent Tweets, Barrett has enough problems of her own to concern herself with someone else’s drama, as she opened up about some of the intense abuse she had recently received online on Twitter.

Nessa Barrett appeals to fans to leave her alone.

In a series of Tweets, she appealed to trolls to “stop telling [her] to kill [her]self,” explaining that she doesn’t “need to hear it anymore on top of [her] own thoughts [she] battle[s] everyday.”

Giving an insight to the struggles of being in the public eye, Barrett tells fans that they “have no idea how draining it is.”

Fans have rallied around Barrett following her Tweets.

In response to these raw and honest Tweets, fans on Instagram rallied around the TikToker, with one user saying: “Imagine receiving thousands of death treats I could never — all I have to say is she’s so strong.”

Another user said that the fact that she had to tweet this was “so sad,” while a further user said “TikTok is so toxic damn.”

Nessa Barrett’s mental health battle

Nessa Barrett has bravely spoken out about her experiences with mental health several times in the past. In an August interview with Entertainment Tonight, she opened up about being diagnosed with conditions like anxiety, depression, and bipolar disorder.

“I’ve been in therapy for anxiety since I was like, six,” she said at the time.

“And then, when I was about 14, I was misdiagnosed with depression. And then, recently, I have been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.”

Being a singer as well as a TikToker, she channelled a lot of her mental heath struggles into songs such as her debut single ‘Pain,’ which she explains was written during a “really vulnerable time” where, among other things, she was once again receiving a lot of hate online.

She also spoke out on Twitter in September about the “serious” and “personal” nature of her mental health issues after she was filmed crying in a restaurant by celebrity paparazzo Kevin Wong.

Hopefully, Barrett’s latest Tweets will be enough of a wake up call for trolls to stop harassing her when she is already feeling vulnerable.
