Dr Disrespect perfectly describes the “pathetic” life of a stream sniper

As one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, Dr Disrespect is no stranger to the persistent nuisance of ‘stream snipers’, and in his latest outburst, described exactly how he thinks these pesky individuals exist.

What are stream snipers?

As the name implies, these are players, typically in battle royale games, who will ‘snipe’ (i.e. scope out and attack) popular streamers in their public matches.

Sometimes they simply try to ruin the streamer’s fun or get their name in lights by eliminating them, and other times they will try to humor the thousands of viewers watching on.

Twitch / Dr DisrespectThe Doc was ‘stream sniped’ during a game of Firestorm.

Dr Disrespect, who regularly pulls in tens of thousands of live viewers, often has to put up with these stream snipers, who hunt him down in lobbies to take him out.

During a match of Battlefield V’s new ‘Firestorm‘ battle royale, the Doc snapped after one such stream sniper ignored all other enemies to solely target him, giving Dr Disrespect no chance.

“These stream snipers are the most pathetic level of a human that is possible,” the Doc exclaimed, “They all live in their mommy’s basement, number two, they’ve never had a job – they don’t know discipline, they’ve played any sports […] they’ve pretty much been a failure their whole life.”

And the Doc wasn’t finished there, as he went on to describe exactly how these ‘pathetic’ individuals live: “They wake up, they don’t shower, right when they wake up, they get their bowl of fruity pebbles, they’re in their sweatpants and one’s got a semi-boner all morning because he doesn’t know what’s going on down there.”

But, as the self-proclaimed face of Twitch and the two-time Blockbuster video gaming champion, the Doc isn’t dissuaded: “You know what the best thing is? I absolutely rip them apart on a daily basis.”

Despite efforts from developers and Twitch itself to clamp down on the problem of stream sniping, it continues to persist, and likely will do so for as long as the medium exists.

On April 9, Michael ‘shroud’ complimented PUBG developers for taking swift action against a particularly annoying stream sniper, who was banned from the game moments after targeting the former CS:GO pro.

But, the problem is so widespread that it will be nearly impossible for all developers and live streaming problems to squash completely, so for now, the Doc will just need to keep on ‘ripping them apart’ on a daily basis.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
