After Twitter announced that Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins was the most talked about gaming personality of 2019, Twitch star Dr Disrespect mocked the Mixer personality for boosting his social media engagements, along with friends Ben ‘DrLupo‘ Lupo, Jack ‘CouRage‘ Dunlop, and Timothy ‘TimTheTatMan‘ Betar.
Dr Disrespect is one of the most popular streamers in the world, dominating Twitch with his movie quality level production, and over the top 80s action hero persona that thrives off of violence, speed, and momentum.
The Esports Awards 2019 Streamer of the Year winner was not too thrilled when Twitter announced Ninja was the most talked about personality of last year, and trolled him by jokingly claiming that it was the result of the Mixer personality interacting with his friends.
Dr Disrespect trolls Ninja over Twitter honor
On January 7, the social media platform posted a look back at 2019, and revealed that Ninja topped the list as the most talked about gaming personality, followed by CouRage in fourth place, TimTheTatMan at eighth, and DrLupo taking the ninth place slot.
The Two-Time champion however barely made the list rounding it out at 10, and took to his Twitter account to take shots at the Mixer star by trolling him over his win.

“Lupo: I need to make sure the others know, Ninja: Dude just post it and I’ll RT, Lupo: Thanks, can you let the others know? Courage: Yeah, I’ll like and RT, only if Tim RT’s,” he wrote, mocking the group of friends over boosting each others’ social media engagements.
Lupo: I need to make sure the others know
Ninja: Dude just post it and I'll RT
Lupo: Thanks, can you let the others know?
Courage: Yeah, I'll like and RT, only if Tim RT's my tweet
Lupo: Wow, Tim's tweet is so funny, let me RT too.
Tim: Lupo, just like my tweet

The tweet included the list of gaming personalities that had made the list ahead of him, and poked fun of Ninja’s circle of friends as an explanation for how the streamer made it to the top.
Taking it in good stride, TimTheTatMan replied to Doc’s roasting with a “10/1o” tweet, while embedding a picture of an iconic meme of a man laughing uncontrollably.
Dr Lupo also got in on the fun, and made a reply to the Two-Time’s tweet tagging Ninja, CouRage, and Tim, echoing Doc’s joke with “Can ya’ll retweet I need to make sure you guys know.”
As of the time of the article, Ninja has not replied back to the roast, although based on his friends’ positive reaction to it, he will probably not be too bothered by Doc’s ribbing.
