Dr Disrespect has branded Twitch Sells Out the “worst thing he’s ever seen” on the platform, suggesting that sponsors are so embarrassed by the show that they’re now refusing to work with him.

The popular Twitch streamer urged the top dogs of the streaming platform to get in touch with their most high profile creative, of course talking about himself, in order to improve the project. 

After pulling up a short clip of the show on the home page, featuring Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys and a few other influencers, the Doc couldn’t believe what he was watching. 

GFUELDr Disrespect wasn’t too happy about the Twitch Sells Out show for Amazon Prime Day.

For those who aren’t aware, Twitch Sells Out was being streamed between July 15 and 16 on the website, bringing together a number of internet personalities to create an online Amazon Prime shopping experience. 

It’s fair to say that Dr Disrespect wasn’t a massive fan of what they were trying to do, though, suggesting it could have been a whole lot better if they made the right phone call. 

Then, if fans didn’t already get the message that the Two-Time wasn’t a fan of the show, he started to list the things that his sponsors have pulled out of, after they thought he was part of Twitch Sells Out.

“I was supposed to go race a Lamborghini against Bubba Wallace next weekend on some crazy ass formula one track, some Indianapolis track. It was a big crossover between F1 Indianapolis racing and Twitch – which is me,” he explained. 

Dr Disrespect added: “Now, Bubba Wallace is calling me going: ‘Is it the same guys running that Twitch Prime Sell Out thing? Because no, we’re not interested. These are the calls I’m dealing with right now.” 

Just after suggesting a commercial with Nike, where he’d apparently link up with Kobe Bryant and Michael Jordan, was taken off the table for the same reasons, he branded the show “unacceptable.” 

In fact, he went as far as saying he could do better. “It’s got nothing to do with the influencers, it’s the idea and how it’s produced,” he said, before pulling it up on the front page. 

“Shit man. I could write a better idea on my water bed in five minutes, at like eleven o’clock at night, when I’m the most tired that I am during the day.” 

Whether or not Dr Disrespect’s long list of exciting sponsorship opportunities have actually been squandered because of Twitch Sells Out is unknown, but he certainly puts across his points convincingly. 

Maybe something with more violence, speed, and momentum would be more to his tastes. Clearly, he wasn’t a fan.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
