Dr Disrespect speechless after stream production fails spectacularly

The Two-Time Champion Dr Disrespect was not expecting production issues with his Twitch stream on February 3, but that’s what he got and it was absolutely hilarious.

Streamers know all too well how it feels when their broadcasts go wrong. Whether it’s an IRL fail, a gameplay error, or a miscalculated dance step during a Just Chatting session, these things happen all too often.

Dr Disrespect is no exception to the odd slipup, and experienced one firsthand when his production setup failed at the beginning of a stream, and literally left him speechless while he attempted to fix it.

Doc’s broadcast fail

The 37-year-old had just finished up a skit ‘riding’ in his car when he attempted to a cut showing his massive Champions Club Arena, where he infamously streams from. But instead of showing the full picture, a green section was missing from the bottom right corner and all you could see was leaves from a plant.

“Uh, um… Uhhh…” the Doc stuttered as he tried to fix the issue. “Hey, uh, production!” he yelled panickingly as he tried to play it cool. “Production!” The shot then shifted to a full-screen of a green screen with a hanging photo of his ‘YAYAYAYA’ poster, and a G FUEL mini fridge.

His Twitch chat was sent into hysterics at the fail, and made it known with spams of “FIRED,” referring to Dr Disrespect’s producer “Alex,” “LMAO” and the ‘doctorLUL’ emote – something which intensified further once the streamer managed to repair the issue and return to the screen.

“Production! Production!” he continued to yell as he reappeared into shot. “The f**k’s going on around here, man?! Pause the music, pause the music… What the hell’s going on around here?!”

It wasn’t long before the issues reappeared again, showing the same green screen backdrop as before, and then suddenly turning black as the errors escalated further.

Thankfully, the known IT Crowd quote of “Have you tried turning it off and on again?” came in handy for Doc, as a quick restart kicked the broadcast into submission and continued on with smooth sailing.

Dr Disrespect continues to be one of the biggest personalities on Twitch with over 3.99 million followers on the streaming platform at the time of writing.

While his whole shtick is about being the best and living up to his Two-Time Champion moniker, it seems as though not even Doc is safe from experiencing the odd production issue.


S1mple banned again on Twitch for fourth time over “aggression”

CS:GO star Oleksandr ‘s1mple’ Kostyliev has apparently been banned again on Twitch, for his fourth time in total on the platform.

The Ukrainian is the star of Natus Vincere’s CSGO squad and generally considered one of the best CS:GO players in the entire world, but even that isn’t enough to save you from the wrath of Twitch mods.

S1mple is no stranger to temporary bans from the site, and it seems he added to his tally again on Oct. 30, with his channel being taken offline out of nowhere.

It seems that like in the past, the pro has once again been banned for using a slur while streaming, but this latest episode isn’t quite like the others.

Shortly after news of the ban dropped, s1mple Tweeted that he was banned for using a Russian slur, but he claims he only said it because he was upset with another player for saying it on his stream.

“It’s funny that I get banned for aggression towards a person that says the word “Pidor” and specifically tries to ban me on the platform,” he wrote. “I try to condemn him for this and say the forbidden word because I have a negative attitude towards it (because of rules).”

While s1mple filled fans in on why he was banned, he didn’t mention how long he would be off of the platform for. Looking at his past infractions though, and it’s safe to say he’s probably looking at a 7-day break, at the very least.

The site has been known to ban repeat offenders for longer if they continue to get in hot water for the same thing, but considering how big of a name s1mple is and the circumstances surrounding this particular incident, it’s hard to say.

A good number of his fans noted that Twitch was quick to ban the Na’Vi pro after he slipped up, but still haven’t taken action against any one of the countless channels that rebroadcast s1mple’s streams to try and steal viewers.

Still, the pro doesn’t seem so much bothered by the ban as he does annoyed, which makes sense because he doesn’t really need to stream so to speak, considering all the money he’s made playing CS:GO professionally. That doesn’t really help his fans though, who will have to find someone else to watch while they wait for his return.
