During his January 20 broadcast, Dr Disrespect mocked fellow Twitch streamer BadBunny after a clip of her complaining about not getting enough subscribers went viral.

BadBunny's January 18th broadcast caught some heat when she called out her chat for not subscribing or donating enough to her channel, claiming that she was "working for free."

However, during his latest stream, Dr Disrespect took aim at the Just Chatting personality, and roasted her by imitating the controversial rant with one of his iconic skits.

Dr Disrespect roasts BadBunny

The Two-Time champion opened up his recent broadcast with a skit where he rode in a sports car and suddenly gets a call from his manger, before launching into an explosive rant similar to BadBunny's.

"I've been live for almost 10 minutes now. And there is not enough people subbing to the channel. If people are going to watch me for free, you better line up the contracts. I don't work for free!" he exclaimed.

Doc then hilariously mocked her criticisms of viewers who watch without paying anything. "If they're sitting in the channel, watching me for free I'm gonna f**king be p**sed off! Yeah, the donations!" he continued.

The skit ended with the Twitch star not realizing his chat was watching, so he apologized and stated, "I love streaming. It's your choice, it really is. I can stream for free. I'm very passionate about this."

However, it then transitioned to Dr Disrespect talking to his manager again, and complaining about viewers not donating. "How much does it cost to have HBO for a month? It's a $14 extension. What do you get? Outdated content!"

"That's what I'm saying!" he exploded. "Figure out a way for every single person that is watching this stream, force them to pay. Yeah, I don't do this s**t for free!"

Regardless if you agree with BadBunny's take or not, the Two-Time putting a spotlight on it will be sure to continue the debate about streamers and their viewers.

Doc continues to be one of the most popular channels on the platform, winning streamer of the year at the Esports Awards 2019, and announcing in December that he signed a deal with The Walking Dead creators to make a TV-show based on his character.
