Massively popular Twitch streamer and internet personality Dr Disrespect was banned from the platform after broadcasting in public bathrooms during E3 2019 -and, although he broke character to deliver a solemn statement on his ‘mishap,’ he doesn’t seem to be taking the scandal too seriously.

Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban saw the streamer take a step back from the platform for two extra weeks after his channel was reinstated, choosing to hype up his return with a series of teasers and humorous videos.

While the Doc has since made his epic comeback to the site, he’s making light of his infamous E3 ban in his usual, over-the-top fashion – and is using his stream’s insane production value to do so.

The two-time took a break from pwning noobs in-game to show off the locker room of his shiny new Arena – a stage that he jokingly claimed was off-limits for camera and video equipment.

“Remember? Cameras, pictures, photography?” he said, laughingly. “Not allowed. Right? Don’t do it. Trust me: boy, I learned my lesson. Especially when I was 85 feet below the Earth’ surface scuba diving in Jamaica.”

This wouldn’t be the first time the Doc has made light of his bathroom ban, either: the streamer poked fun of the debacle with a series of new emotes shortly after the scandal went viral, which show the streamer poking his head over a bathroom stall as recorded during his offending broadcast (which, unfortunately, didn’t end up making the cut).

That’s not all: the two-time even lightheartedly referred to his ban as a “mishap” during his E3 recap video, ducking into the men’s room after claiming that he had to relieve himself of “hot diarrhea.”

However, Dr Disrespect didn’t completely disregard the serious consequences of his bathroom stream: Guy Beahm broke character to deliver a sobering message concerning the ban just ahead of his return to Twitch, explaining that he’d been so hyped up about his first IRL stream that he’d gotten carried away with the Doc’s persona.

Dr Disrespect has since made a glorious comeback with an all-new streaming schedule, finally returning to his hilarious, on-stream antics: making sure to avoid any real-life bathrooms, of course.

Twitch streamer and comedian Mark Samyal Bonanno has gone viral for posting the same photo of himself and his father to Instagram every single day — with a few humorous modifications, of course.

Every once in a while, someone gets incredibly creative with their social media presence; but with so many content creators out there nowadays, it seems like just about everything has already been done.

This is not the case for Twitch streamer, comedian and actor Mark Bonanno, who took his Instagram game to the next level with a little inspiration from his father.

Bonanno is part of Australian absurdist comedy group Aunty Donna, which boasts an impressive YouTube presence of over 315,000 subscribers.

Best known for their comedy sketches and humorous podcast, Aunty Donna has become quite the name in the Aussie online space, and Bonanno is showing off his comedy chops even further via his Instagram account.

A quick look at his profile will show some interesting results: His entire profile consists of a single photo posted multiple times, showing himself and his father posing in front of a blue Ford sedan.

These photos stretch back far into his account, each with a different spin; Bonanno even recreated the photo with TF2 characters in Garry’s Mod, while others show the two in front of the famous code seen in the Matrix films or other odd backgrounds.

His latest pic (at the time of writing) shows his father’s head photoshopped into that of a velociraptor — and although it’s not exactly Jurassic Park-levels of frightening, it’s certainly worth a good laugh.

Bonanno’s Instagram shenanigans have since gone viral online, earning him wide appeal as viewers can’t seem to get enough of the daily photoshopped madness of the same picture; but a cheeky Q&A session with his pater has revealed that he wasn’t actually aware the photo would turn into such a long-running gag.

In response to a fan’s question about the pic, Bonanno’s father, Charlie (real name Carmelo), wrote: “I thought it was a bit of fun. I didn’t know he was going to do this, though.”

Charlie answers a question about Mark's daily photoshopping posts.

A cheeky Q&A sesh with Mark’s father, Charlie, revealed his humorous thoughts on the now viral daily photo project.

Shenanigans aside, it seems that Mark’s wacky undertaking has taken off in a major way, giving fans and onlookers something wild to look forward to every day.
