Dr Disrespect had some strong things to say about Gears of War 5 since its release, but after returning to the game to give it another try, he actually seems to like it. 

The popular Twitch streamer always has thousands of viewers waiting in the arena for his gaming sessions and his Gears 5 return broadcast was no different.

Having previously said that it could well be the time for the franchise to die following its September 6 release, which would suggest we wouldn’t see him playing the title any time soon, something appears to have changed his mind after giving it a second chance. 

Xbox Game StudiosGears of War 5 seems to have the Doc torn.

During his broadcast on September 16, the Two-Time gave a very different verdict on the game than what many of his fans might have been expecting, given his comments following its launch. 

“Yeah, I like the shit mechanics. It’s one of those games where it has horrific player mechanics but if you learn, it’s actually kind of fun to play horrible game mechanics,” he said. “It’s interesting. It really is. Like, it fucks with your mind a little bit, you know?”

While the Doc’s new conclusion on the game’s mechanics might not make sense to many of his fans, it seems as if he can’t really put a finger on what he likes about the game himself. One thing is for sure, though, he’s been dominating since giving it a second chance. 

In an attempt to round up the journey he’s been on with the game so far, he added: “You’ve got to go through that phase, trust me. I went through it.

“Once you get past that stage of knowing that you’ve got to deal with the clunkiness and horrific programming of player mechanics, anyways, then you start feeling out what the game’s potential is truly about. And that’s… I’m telling you. It feels really good.”

Whether or not members of the Champions Club will be seeing their favorite Internet personality jump into the world of Gears of War for much longer remains to be seen. 

He certainly seems to be enjoying it, nevertheless. 


TikTok Star Zoe Laverne admits she “caught feelings” for underage fan

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Zoe explained that she and Connor have separated

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
