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 Outdated content!”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.

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
