Dr Disrespect reveals hilarious reason he “said no” to NBA All-Star Game

Dr Disrespect has revealed that he turned down the chance to play in the NBA All-Star Game and his explanation for doing so is the most Doc thing imaginable.

The All-Star game brings together some of the top names in the NBA to play in a friendly basketball match as part of the NBA All-Star weekend. On top of that, they have the NBA All-Star Celebrity game, which pretty much does what it says on the tin.

It’s a bit of fun and will often see A-List celebrities make fools of themselves – or, otherwise, prove their skills – alongside some of the biggest names in basketball. However, despite his evident physical prowess, it appears popular streamer Dr Disrespect will not be on the teamsheet this year.

Esports Awards
Dr Disrespect has twice been named Streamer of the Year at the Esports Awards.

The NBA revealed the two teams that will be taking part on February 5, with rappers Common and Chance the Rapper leading each team, backed up by the likes of Bad Bunny, Quavo, Lil Rel Howery and Alex Moffat.

Though no other streamers are on the teamsheets for either team, Dr Disrespect made a joke of the fact that he was asked to play, saying that he “said no” seemingly due to it being unfair on the opposition.

“Kidding me,” he asked. “Who’s gonna guard me? Ronnie? Hahahaha.” Ronnie refers to Ronnie 2K, a community manager that works on the NBA 2K games.

Of course, the Doc makes a good point. Standing at 6ft8, he is a behemoth of a man that would be impossible to guard if you’re not a similar size and stature – or a professional basketball player.

With his key traits of violence, speed and momentum, there’s no doubt the Two-Time would be a formidable opponent to come up against, somewhat terrifying as he looms over you like the giant he is.

Whether he was actually asked to play in the game is unclear – it’s not entirely impossible, and top streamers are being recognized by the mainstream now more than ever. But, this is the Doc we’re talking about, and he might not have been asked at all.

Chantel Jeffries hits back at Sommer Ray in unexpected Twitter feud

American DJ and Instagram model Chantel Jeffries may have stirred up some beef with fellow influencer Sommer Ray, after the former made a tweet calling out girls for liking popular adult cartoon series ‘Rick and Morty.’

Yeah, you read that right; apparently, liking Rick and Morty is enough to start Twitter drama — at least in the case of these two internet superstars.

Rick and Morty is a popular show among adults, and is often considered by viewers to be as intellectually salient as it is humorous.

Unfortunately, Sommer Ray doesn’t seem to be a huge fan of the animated series, as told by her shady Tweet toward its female viewerbase on October 22.

“Sorry girls, but liking Rick and Morty isn’t a personality trait,” Ray wrote, a statement that quite a few users viewed as taking issue with women who enjoy the show and consider themselves fans.

Needless to say, this sparked quite the debate among her own fans and critics, with many finding her tweet to be needlessly confrontational toward other women, while still others mocked those getting “offended” by her post.

The passive-aggressive tweet soon caught the attention of DJ and YouTuber Chantel Jeffries, who clapped back at Ray’s thinly-veiled shade with a humorous addition of her own.

“Sorry girls, but bashing other girls for what they like isn’t a personality trait,” she replied, adding a smiley face with hearts for good measure.

Jeffries’ tweet incited a wave of similar sentiments in the comments, with more than a few users wondering why Ray was seemingly attacking other women for their interests.

In fact, it seems that Ray’s tweet may have been directed at Jeffries, herself, as the DJ is a longtime fan of the show, as shown by several of her past posts on social media.

She even wore a pair of $22 Rick and Morty themed pants from Amazon for a photoshoot in spite of her top-tier status as an internet celeb, so it’s safe to say that she’s not afraid to show off her love for the show — nor is she afraid to call out other influencers for their not-so-subtle shade toward her.
