Dr Disrespect roasts TimTheTatman for boomer comment over Tesla Cybertruck

Dr Disrespect’s scathing review of Tesla’s brand new Cybertruck attracted the attention of another Twitch streamer, TimTheTatman, but his response didn’t go down too well with the leader of the Champions Club. 

These two popular internet personalities have dominated Twitch during the course of 2019, with fans of both stars enjoying some interesting back and forth from time to time.

In their latest interaction on social media, though, the Doc wasn’t too fond of the label Timothy ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar used to describe him. Just like many other streamers have done of late, he called him a “boomer” after reacting badly to the new vehicle’s release.

Business Insider, YouTubeElon Musk revealed Tesla’s new Cybertruck on November 22, slated for a late 2021 or early 2022 release date.

Tesla’s new Cybertruck retails for $39,900 (roughly £31,000) and is an armored vehicle. Running on electricity, just like all of the manufacturer’s previous models, this is supposed to be their answer to the pickup truck. It doesn’t really look like one, though, and Dr Disrespect wasn’t too impressed either.

On November 22, the day it was released, the Two-Time tweeted: “That Tesla truck is the worst thing I’ve ever seen.”

In a quick response to the comment, TimTheTatman decided to label him a “boomer.” If he was already upset by Tesla’s big reveal, it’s fair to say that what came next was on another level of roasting.

“You drive jeeps around in pink shorts. You drink flavored carbonated water with two drops of chemically induced vodka. You play Fortnite in 2019. Cmon Timmy Tuff Tenders, what’s next…. Mixer? Hahahahaha,” he tweeted.

It appeared that the work of TimTheTatman was done at this stage, potentially looking to bait him into a response. Either that or he just couldn’t come back with anything as hard-hitting.

This wasn’t the end of the whole “boomer” thing for the Doc, though, not by a long shot. After jumping into PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for a few games on Twitch, it didn’t take long for him to respond on stream as well – with typical violence, speed, and momentum.

After driving around in one of the game’s vehicles, he spotted an enemy hiding behind a rock, so he leaped out of his car and decided to make a statement – blasting them away with a shotgun. He yelled: “Am I a boomer? Huh? Am I a boomer? BOOM. How about that?”

The unpredictable nature and entertainment value of the Dr Disrespect character was commended at the Esports Awards 2019, where he pipped TimTheTatman and many others to receive the Streamer of the Year award.

Now, all eyes turn towards Tim for a potential response.


Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
