Dr Disrespect has warned that the demise of Twitch is “inevitable” in a reply to Trainwreck’s Kick streaming platform announcement.

It’s no secret that Dr Disrespect isn’t a fan of Twitch, which he often refers to as the “purple snakes.”

Although the two settled a legal dispute surrounding his 2020 ban from the platform earlier in 2022, the Two-Time has continued to share his thoughts and opinions about the Amazon-owned platform.

On December 5, Trainwreck provided an update on his new streaming platform – Kick – and mentioned how profitable Twitch is — but Doc had a few words to say about it.

“There’s one thing completely wrong in your update Train…. The purple snakes are nowhere near being profitable. It’s a money pit for Amazon.

However, it’s entirely unknown whether or not anything will happen to Twitch in the future — so we’ll have to wait to see if Doc’s intuitions are right.
