Dr Disrespect has sensationally revealed a trophy he says was given to him by Twitter after reaching “1 billion followers,” in what would be far and away the most impressive landmark the platform has ever seen. 

The popular Twitch streamer announced that he had reached a total of 1 billion Twitter followers on May 16, just two days after claiming to have reached the same number in YouTube subscribers just two days before. 

Both milestones would sound incredibly impressive to any of his fans, if they were to be genuine, but that hasn’t stopped people from sending some firm handshakes in his direction after he broke the ‘news’ on social media. 

G FUELWould this be Dr Disrespect’s greatest achievement?

The trophy itself – he says – is made from a mix of very expensive elements, too, which would make it well worthy of both the achievement, and for the self-proclaimed best video gamer of all time. 

“We just hit 1 Billion followers on Twitter. They also sent us a trophy already… It’s made of tanzanite, blue diamond and gold. Firm handshakes,” he tweeted alongside a photo of the impressive piece of silverware. 

The Two-Time has actually reached a total of one million followers, a very impressive number in its own right, and was sent messages of congratulations by a number of accounts on the platform – including Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop, gaming hardware company Razer, and others. 

For those that have worked out that the announcement has a slight inaccuracy, though, you may be wondering who actually has the highest amount of followers on Twitter. 

The rankings, as of the time of writing, are led by singer Katy Perry – who boasts over 107 million – and is around one million away from the man in second place with 106 million, the former President of the United States, Barack Obama. 

That means that Dr Disrespect’s tally, if it was to be 1 billion, would be far and away the highest ever recorded on the platform. However, that – sadly for him – is not the case just yet. It would to take a vertical leap of the highest order to get to his statistics to that level, but he’s certainly moving in the right direction.

Corpse Husband shares heartbreaking update on his chronic health condition

The viral YouTube star and music artist known as ‘Corpse Husband’ has shared a grim update on his chronic health condition with his fans, leading to an outpouring of support for the content creator who has taken over the internet.

While Corpse Husband has been on YouTube for some time, he rose to the top of the platform’s ‘Whos’ Who’ in late 2020, becoming known for his deep voice and humorous Among Us streams with other top creators.

Despite his impressive popularity, the YouTuber stated in a January 2 broadcast that he might not be able to continue his career as a full-time entertainer for the long-term.

Corpse cited his chronic illnesses for this potential development, and already limits his broadcasts to one or two streams a week as a result.

(Topic begins at 1:13 in the video below.)

It doesn’t look like the outlook has become any less bleak, either, as he shared a heartbreaking update on his health in a series of tweets via his alternate account a few weeks later.

“I did my needle EMG for my nerve conduction study and got some results that are not good,” he wrote. “I don’t really know how to process it or cope with it. I still want to participate in everything coming up. If I seem off in any upcoming things, that’s why. I don’t really know what to do.”

According to Corpse, the diagnosis is that there is little to no treatment for his nerve condition, with doctors stating he would be in pain without any hope of reprieve throughout his lifetime.

“They probably identified the problem with my arms,” he continued. “They basically told me I’m going to be in pain like this for the rest of my life and that it’s only going to get worse, and there’s not much I can do about it besides relieve it sometimes with injections. Idk.”

Thus far, Corpse has been met with ample support from his fans and fellow creators, with the likes of Pokimane and even Valkyrae wishing him well amid such a devastating diagnosis.

While Corpse has been relatively open about his conditions in the past, this latest update truly brings the matter into perspective — but luckily, he’s got a wealth of supportive friends and fans to help him through it.
