As one of the most popular live streamers, Dr DisRespect is no stranger to haters and deals with them in a very unique way – by mocking their own words against him.
The Doc has in the past put him self in the spotlight for the wrong reasons, but his character never allows him to be shot down by the naysayers.
His most recent episode came after he demanded that battle royale game PUBG add in personalized skins for him, and received backlash from some in the community who accused him of being somewhat entitled.
And to the surprise of many, only a couple of days later sure two unique Dr DisRespect weapons skins were added to the game, as well as two for fellow popular live streamer Shroud.
After his request to PUBG spread though, one particular tweet from the Editor-in-Chief of PC Gamer, got a lot of attention – perhaps because the Doc himself shared it – which criticized him for his demands to the PUBG Devs.
The argument being that by making these demands, it somehow contributed to a negative relationship between players of games and developers, where players “antagonize” game makers.
Cool that we’ve reached the point where an influencer is holding themselves hostage unless a game meets their demands to promote them and earn them money.
Playful or not, this stuff adds to the antagonism we’ve seen grow between players and devs in the past few years. pic.twitter.com/Ly7XIgsi1G

After seeing this Tweet, Dr DisRespect knew exactly what he had to do, mocking it live on stream.
“Let’s go ahead and read – in his voice.”
Regardless of which side of the argument you are on, his voice acting is pretty impressive.
Given that the PUBG developers did in fact add the skins, and only a few days after the Doc’s request – it seems likely that it was all just a form of promotion in the first place.
