While hyping an upcoming Ghost Recon stream, Herschel ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm took it upon himself to slam modern day parents who want their kids to be the next Bugha and win the Fortnite World Cup. 

After noting his stream would be happening a little bit later on in the afternoon or early evening, he joked that that’s when the Fortnite players would have gone to bed. 

“I like that, I kinda like that timezone. A little bit more mature, a little bit late night,” he said, adding that it’s after the “Fortnite kiddies” have gone to sleep. 

GfuelDr Disrespect is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch.

Doc then proceeded to mock the parents of Fortnite players by putting on an exaggerated motherly voice. “You got everything little Henry? Are you sure? You want some hot chocolate? Huh? I’ll do everything for you. I just need you to win the fucking World Cup little Henry.”

The two-time was referencing Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf’s enormous payday of $3 million for winning the Fortnite World Cup back in July. 

“Wake the fuck up,” Doc continued, putting on a dark twist to his impersonation. “You’re not going to school tomorrow. WAKE UP! Tomorrow you’re playing fucking Fortnite all day. We’re winning the World Cup and…”

Like all good Disrespect skits, there’s normally some sort of twist at the end for a payoff. This one was no exception. 

Epic GamesBugha won the Fortnite World Cup.

“Henry, how long has your sister…” a pretending to be shocked Beahm continued. “…been here with that video camera. Hey guys,” he added with a wave. 

After seeing how much money there is in the world of esports, it’s likely that more and more parents will see their children’s success as a lucrative opportunity.

It’s really no different than the parents of yesteryear who pushed their kids to excel at traditional sports with a hope at making the big time. The difference is with esports, anyone can win big regardless of their age when it comes to certain games.

For example, Bugha was 16 when he won the World Cup, but to play in the Overwatch League, players must be at least 18.

Streamer goes viral for calling out “disrespectful” Among Us players

YouTuber and Twitch streamer Julien ‘julien’ Solomita has gone viral for a clip in which he called out Among Us players who are disrespectful towards others in-game.

In the viral clip, which has been viewed over 350,000 times since being uploaded to Twitter on December 4, Julien blasted people who infect his lobbies with negativity or make others feel “unsafe.”

“When I make these lobbies, when I go around and hit up some of my friends, and often times some of my friends’ friends to play Among Us with me, I have one thing in mind: that everyone I’m inviting gets to have fun,” the streamer began his rant.

“Gets to feel welcome. Gets to feel safe. Gets the exact opportunity as everyone else to be listened to. And gets to go home at the end of the night and say that had a good night of gaming,” he continued.

Among Us has become one of the most popular online games.

According to Julien, this mantra should be enforced for new people. “I’ve met more people in the streaming world playing Among Us than I’ve ever met, by far, than any other game,” he explained. “So, when new people are in my lobbies, I try to go extra to out of my way to make those people feel like they’re welcome and they get to have fun.”

Communication can be key in Among Us, so it makes sense that anyone who plays would want to be able to speak freely and not be spoken over. As such, when players aren’t able to get a word in, the experience can be ruined.

This is why the streamer has “zero tolerance” for the “normalization” of disrespecting people in video games.

“Among Us is a game and it’s for fun. It’s not so boys can talk over women. It’s not to make new people in the group feel small or unwelcome. It’s not to win in every game at all costs,” he continued to rant. “It’s a game and it’s for everybody to enjoy.”

He went on to reach out to players who may have been disrespected in online games and hoped that they never experienced that again. “I don’t want anyone here to get the idea that it’s even close to normal for that to be how you feel when you play a video game. That’s not normal. It’s f**king weird, it’s wrong.”

A lot of people have taken Solomita’s message to heart and voiced their agreement in the replies. Hopefully, his words have a lasting effect on players feeling a bit out of touch in online games such as Among Us.
