Dr Disrespect questions TimTheTatman's motives for buying Fortnite player's new PC

Dr Disrespect has questioned just how genuine Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar was being with his most recent shocking donation to another player, mocking his fellow Twitch streamer. 

After being paired up with a young player, Brady, in the popular battle royale game on April 3 and playing a few games together, Tim amazed the young Fortnite fan when he offered to buy him a brand new computer.

However, despite the generosity, when Dr Disrespect heard the news, he couldn’t help but pull off one of his vintage impressions to throw shade at him for it. 

Twitch/TimTheTatmanTimTheTatman offered to make a significant donation to a young Fortnite player on April 3.

It all started when a donation appeared during the Doc’s April 3 stream. “Did you see that TimTheTatman’s bought a kid a computer that he met in a random Duos match? What a guy!” it said.

If you were expecting Dr Disrespect to react positively, though, think again. The Two-Time joked that not only will TimTheTatman have not bought the PC, but suggests it was all a plan to increase his popularity, instead.

“No, he did not buy this kid a computer,” the Two-Time said, before jumping right into character to impersonate a phone call between Tim and his sponsors.

“Yeah, I need a connection,” he continued. “Make me look really good and then I’ll tweet it out, and then I’ll tell my chat to tweet it out so it gets way more likes and retweets. Yeah, that will really make me look like a good guy.”

Tim followed the Fortnite player, bradyzlol, on Twitter, claiming that he would like to speak to the kid’s dad about donating an extra $500 to bump up his budget for a new computer to $1000.

Whether or not Dr Disrespect actually thinks that the donation might not be genuine is unknown, but you would have to presume that he’s just trying to get under some peoples’ skin. He’s mastered that art over the years.

Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
