Dr Disrespect is inviting players to play Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with him and NBA star Klay Thompson, but you have to make sure your gamertag is good enough.

Golden State Warriors star Klay Thompson is teaming up with Dr Disrespect and offering the opportunity for fans to play Modern Warfare with the two of them through Omaze. 

Players can sign up for a chance to win through this free opportunity, but you’ll only be limited to one entry so you’ll need to be very lucky to win this.

The way fans can get a much better chance at playing with the two, they will have to support the Call of Duty Endowment program with a donation, with more chances to win if more money is donated.

Dr Disrespect - TwitchDr Disrespect is one of the biggest Twitch channels out there.

One other thing you’ll need if you hope to have any chance of playing with the Doc is a good gamertag.

If your name isn’t up to par, the Two-Time has proven he’s up to the task and can provide you with a good one. He proved this by dishing out several names to Thompson, who arguably turned down some pretty good ideas.

He went through a variety of nicknames such as AKlay-47, Klayzervision, and Klay’s Anatomy, all of which were turned down almost instantly. He then tried out a variety of Terminator-related names like Termiklaytor, Termiklaytor 2: Judgment Klay, Termiklayor: Dark Klayt, but he didn’t want anything with Terminator.

Doc then suggested one like his: “Nurse Practitioner Inconsiderate.”

“Why not Dr. Inconsiderate,” asked the NBA star, to which the Two-Time responded “Oh, I’m sorry, I didn’t realize you had a PhD”

The winner of the contest will be put up in a 4-star hotel and also appear on Dr Disrespect’s Twitch channel for the games.

This means that if you aren’t good at Modern Warfare, tens of thousands of viewers will see it, so you better get in all your practice while you can.

The promotion runs all the way to January 20, 2020, so there will be plenty of time for players to get their entries in.

TikTok’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio, has invested in her very first startup, and it’s a $50 million mobile banking service specifically aimed at teenagers.

In true D’Amelio fashion, Charli has decided to invest in her first company, Step, along with a slew of other celebrity investors.

What is Step?

Step is a mobile banking service directed toward teenagers aged 13-19, which announced this morning that it has raised over $50 million during its Series B funding stage.

Step has grown to over 500,000 users in two months after its official launch, and features a variety of elements seen in apps like Venmo and PayPal, allowing users to send money to friends via peer-to-peer technology.

The service also offers its teen customer-base FDIC-insured bank accounts without any fees, easing their foray into the financial world. Step even gives users a Visa card that allows them to establish credit prior to turning 18.

As for Charli D’Amelio, she seems to be quite jazzed about the bank’s entire concept, having risen to prominence in the mobile world before turning 16 this year.

“As a Step partner and customer, I’ve been able to see firsthand how easy Step makes it to manage your money while providing the educational resources that today’s teens need but have largely been unable to find—myself included,” D’Amelio stated.

“I’m excited to be able to use my platform to help close this gap and have made a direct investment in Step to help them develop even more useful products.”

Charli isn’t the only big name putting some stock into Step; A-list celebs like Will Smith, the Chainsmokers, and Justin Timberlake are also investing in the bank, making for a truly star-studded affair for the emerging company.

Step is planning to partner with even more celebrities and influencers in the future, and hopes to help its teenaged customer-base with everything from student loans to building credit in the long-term.

Step aims to help teenagers ease into the confusing financial world.

“Student loans are a big thing. Being able to extend credit to these folks. Being able to offer new products and services so they’re not paying these outrageous, predatory banking fees and high interest credit cards,” Step CEO MacDonald said of the service.

It looks like Charli is making big waves with this major investment, and all eyes are peeled to see if her 101 million TikTok followers will hop onto the Step trend, too.
