Rainbow Six Siege, but it’s fair to say that he got a lot more than he bargained for after deciding to buy them. 

The popular Twitch streamer decided to open some of the popular cosmetic packs in the popular tactical shooter, expecting a regular outfit to appear, and that did turn out to be the case for his first selection as he unlocked the Simulation Course skin. 

However, next he went for one of the Crimsonveil Collection pack, which very much resembles a blood packet in-game, and what happened next was certainly scarier than he might have imagined. 

UbisoftUbisoft revealed a shed load of new Rainbow Six Siege in February, with the launch of Operation Burnt Horizon.

Dr Disrespect’s scary Rainbow Six pack opening 

As he unzipped the pack at the very top, not knowing what could pop up, the Legendary Brimstoned headgear came springing out onto the screen – giving him a sudden jump scare. “Let’s open some packs,” he said, navigating the menus. Just moments later, he jokingly unleashed a squeal of shock. 

For those who haven’t seen it before, players using this cosmetic will have not just a brown helmet on their heads, but blood all over their Rainbow Six character’s face, as well as a fresh set of freaky looking eyes. 

Scary moments have been a feature of the Two-Time’s streams during May, however, but not always has he been the one on the receiving end of the scaring. In a bizarre exchange, Dr Disrespect appeared to freeze a PUBG player with fear during an online match on May 1, after firing a few shots in their direction. 

Fans of high profile streamers do enjoy the odd jump scare, though, and there’s no question that the Doc was caught out on this occasion. Whether or not he will continue to play Rainbow Six Siege on stream, let alone buy more of the packs, remains to be seen.

McLaren F1 driver, Twitch streamer, and all-round good guy Lando Norris has been in the news for his controversial comments towards fellow drivers. However, it seems that some fans aren’t accepting any sort of apology for the matter after he posted on Twitter.

While McLaren F1 driver Lando Norris is generally seen as one of the breakout personalities on the 2020 F1 grid, he doesn’t always get it right 100% of the time. He’s also had a number of issues off-grid too, being forced to shut down a Twitch stream by F1 officials during the 2020 Eifel GP.

Having said a number of controversial comments about fellow drivers Lewis Hamilton and Lance Stroll during an interview, he is now facing backlash after issuing an apology on Twitter.

Lando Norris lashes out at Hamilton and Stroll

During the Portuguese GP on October 25, 2020, Lewis Hamilton clocked up his record-breaking 92nd win. This exceeded the previous record held by the legendary Michael Schumacher, and Norris didn’t seem all that impressed.

“I’m just happy for him, nothing more; It doesn’t mean anything to me, really. He’s in a car which should win every race, basically,” Norris said following the Portuguese GP. “He has to beat one or two other drivers, that’s it. Fair play to him, he’s still doing the job he has to do.”

Not only did Lando take aim at Hamilton, but also at Lance Stroll following their collision during lap 17 of the Portuguese GP. Bizarrely, Stroll also clashed with Verstappen at the exact same point during Free Practice, which perhaps explains Lando’s comments. According to Lando, he will have to avoid Stroll in future since “he crashes a lot” and “doesn’t learn from anything he does.”

Lando Norris issues Twitter apology to F1 fans

Following the backlash for his comments, Norris took to his Twitter account to issue an apology for his actions, but many are saying he didn’t go far enough.

Unfortunately for Lando, he has faced harsh criticism following his apology message. One Twitter user pointed out he didn’t address his recent issues directly, saying: “You cannot even name Lewis. Shame on you for your inability to be respectful.”

Not only was he deemed to be disrespectful, but was also called out for his own racing performance: “lol [Norris] hasn’t even beaten a teammate in a full season and thinks [that] Hamilton’s achievement are not special” wrote another account.
