Dr Disrespect, the Esports Awards 2019 Streamer of the Year, hilariously roasted fellow Twitch entertainer Mason ‘Symfuhny’ Lanier after Epic Games sent him a special Fortnite gift pack. 

Any viewer of Twitch will be familiar with Dr Disrespect’s channel. The eccentric gamer is the creation of Guy Beahm, and has been acclaimed on the streaming platform, best known for his incredible outbursts and passionate gameplay commentaries. 

The acclaim with which he is considered is summarized by his victory at the 2019 Esports Awards, where he took home the prize for Best Streamer, beating out fabled creators like Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenny. 

While the Doc is known for a variety of games, such as PUBG and Modern Warfare, Symfuhny is almost exclusively known for Fortnite. 

Esports AwardsThe Doc took home one of the night’s biggest awards.

Lanier’s affinity for Epic Games’ battle royale saw them send him an early Christmas present, which he shared with his half-a-million followers. “Oh my god!” he tweeted. “Fortnite sent me a freaking holiday package”.

The image shows a host of Fortnite merchandise, including jumpers, backpacks and even toy Nerf weapons. While much of his audience was impressed, the Doc was not among them.

“Nice,” the Doc joked. “Now you can give it away at a 6 year old kid’s birthday party.”

Not only is the Doc insulting Fortnite, with it’s rather juvenile gift set, but also Lanier’s audience, whom he insinuates consists of mainly 6-year olds. The tweet went down well on social media, with over 5,000 likes. 

However, the Doc didn’t just stop at roasting Symfuhny, he also hit out at pro Call of Duty player Ian ‘Enable’ Wyatt. The Seattle Surge player joked that if he retired from CoD and committed to full-time streaming, the Doc’s success would be over, which the Doc quickly shut down.

Disrespect even roasted the runner up for Streamer of the Year, CouRage, by mocking his well-known streaming mantra: “Don’t take part, take over.”

The Doc appears to be going from strength to strength, and rumors swirl regarding his streaming future, with many speculating that Microsoft’s Mixer may soon be making a swoop for the two-time. 

CouRage also moved away from the Amazon-owned platform recently, opting to move to YouTube exclusively, but Dr Disrespect continues to boost that he’s the “face of Twitch”.

Away from his success, he’s simply proved, once again, that he will always have the last laugh.

Internet personalities Lexi Rivera and Ben Azelart have explained why they broke up after three years together, in an emotional video posted to YouTube.

Lexi Rivera is known in association with her brother Brent who is one of TikTok’s biggest creators with 35 million followers, while Lexi herself has more than 14 million followers on the app. The siblings also have a combined 19.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

Ben Azelart is also heavily associated with the siblings and has himself built up a huge following of 11 million followers on TikTok. But fans were devastated to find out this week that the duo were no longer a couple.

Lexi and Ben posted a video explaining why, saying that they thought they owed their fans the truth. Lexi said: “I have so much respect for Ben and he’s like literally one of the best people I’ve ever met in my entire life.” Ben responded, “I mean the same goes for me, Lexi is one of the nicest, sweetest, funniest people I’ve ever met.”

Addressing their viewers, Lexi explained why it took so long for them to officially break the news: “I know that it’s been super confusing for you guys and that is because it’s been just as confusing for us we’ve been very just on and off again and I don’t think we were really sure what we wanted to do until now.

“Having a relationship is one thing, but having a relationship online is a completely different story and it was very confusing for us. Honestly, it wasn’t easy being young like we were 15 and 16.

Lexi went on to say that the relationship no longer made them both happy. “We both had so much fun doing it, but I think as years went on it just became a little too complicated…I think what was hard is we want to make you guys happy as well as make ourselves happy.

“Ultimately we just didn’t do both and I think what’s most important was focusing on ourselves for now.”

Lexi and Ben finished by saying that they’re not parting ways forever and that they both felt it was just the wrong time to be together.
