Dr Disrespect unveils his new song about streamers moving to Mixer

Dr Disrespect has dabbled in song making throughout 2019 and his latest musical endeavor is a parody song about Microsoft’s streaming platform Mixer and its attempts to steal away Twitch streamers.

In the latter part of 2019, many big-name streamers made the switch from Twitch to other platforms, which all started when Ninja announced his bombshell move to Mixer.

Since that announcement, we’ve seen shroud and Ewok move to Mixer and CouRage switch over to YouTube for his livestreams.

Dr DisrespectDoc is spreading the holiday cheer this season.

Now, viewers are always on edge about who the next big streamer to make a switch will be. One person who has consistently said he isn’t going anywhere though, is Dr Disrespect.

Doubling down on that, Doc has taken frequent shots at Mixer, often pointing out the lower view counts on streams when compared to Twitch.

On December 24, the Doc debuted a brand-new song on his stream and this one was about Mixer. However, not everything was as it seemed.

Instead of releasing a diss track about Mixer, he actually praised it in the song, signing “Come over to Mixer, and stream with all of us. We’re happy, we’re friendly!” Of course, he’s made his thoughts about the rival platform clear in the past, so the impromptu track was really just a parody.

It’s possible Doc was caught in a good mood due to it being Christmas Eve, so adopted a new strategy to poke fun at Mixer.

Doc has been spreading a bit of cheer as we close out the year. He released a bizarre Christmas card that was filled with his face and even had some inspirational messages to share with his viewers.

Respawn EntertainmentDoc and shroud have a friendly rivalry with each other.

For someone who usually takes playful jabs at other streamers, such as his rivalry with shroud, it’s a nice change of pace to see him spreading some positivity.

Most of this can probably be chalked up to this being the time of year for cheer, so once January rolls around, we’ll probably see Doc go back to his old ways.

Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
