Dr DisRespect takes Fortnite streaming to a new level with “Footnite”

Dr. DisRespect is boldly going where few streamers have gone before by binding some of his controls in Fortnite to a pedal and bringing out a foot cam on stream.

Fortnite is not one of Dr. DisRespect’s favorite games, he’s made his aversion to the battle royale game clear in the past, but it seems he’s finally found a way to have a great time with it.

All it took was a USB-connected pedal for the Doc to make his game-changing Fortnite vision into an awesome and hilarious reality.

In one clip, The Doc explains to a teammate what his ingenious button layout on the pedals is.

“I got my, boom, quick harvesting tool, and then I have my build edit tool,” the streamer revealed. “And in the middle I got my map just in case I need to check it real quick.”

The setup honestly seems to work pretty well and the Doc apparently got the hang of using the foot pedals fairly quickly.

There is one lingering question about the new setup many fans had, but The Doc never answered: why didn’t he wear any socks for the footcam?

There may be some viewers out there who enjoyed looking at Dr. DisRespect’s bare digits, but the vast majority of fans seemed to think socks would have been a good choice.

But, based on the success of his so-called “Footnite” experiment, we could see The Doc bring back the footcam in the future.

Hopefully next time he wears some socks.


Vinnie Hacker lashes out at “manipulative” fans after TikTok fame

Vinnie Hacker has spoken out about the problems of TikTok stardom, saying some of his fans are “manipulative” and “controlling.” He echoed the sentiment that nobody is perfect, and that people should “live life and learn from it.”

The role models and idols of today appear almost out of nowhere thanks to social media. The medium also leads to a host of those celebrities being quite young.

One of them is Vinnie Hacker. The TikToker has over 5.7 million fans on the platform, as well as 2 million on Instagram. However, life in the limelight has come with its own set of problems. Hacker feels like he’s been forced to live to unreasonable standards put by his fans.

“Why do some people want to control my life. Telling me who I can and can’t talk to. Saying that you’ll only allow me to be with “this person.” Grow up. Don’t be manipulative,” he said in a TikTok.

“You preach against manipulation and then go on and make sure that they live a life that’s satisfying to you and not them. One mistake and a person’s career is over in this area of work.”

“In the eyes of the internet, people are subjected to be role models. And people say to not set unnecessary standards for others, but wouldn’t you think a life without mistakes and growth and perfection is more of a high standard than learning and growing?”

He also said that once you get thrown into the social media machine, you can’t really pull yourself out. Ultimately, these stars live and die by their fans’ judgment.

“Once it gets past that breaking point to where someone becomes relevant, the assumptions come and get dragged along with them. Privacy is invaded and people try to tell them how to live their lives. You end up not being your own person, but the internet’s person.”

These comments come as Hacker takes a break from Twitch streaming to focus on his personal life.

“Taking a break from streaming for quite a while. I don’t really feel to explain. A lot of personal stuff, on top of the unfortunate stuff that happens whilst streaming. Something always goes wrong. I might begin again, I might not,” he said.
