Dr Disrespect’s very own book, titled ‘Violence. Speed. Momentum.’ is right around the corner. From what it’s about to how you can preorder, here’s everything there is to know.

As one of the biggest personalities on the internet, it was only a matter of time before Dr Disrespect branched out into other mediums. While the two-time has teased plenty of surprises for 2021, we already know of a few major projects in the works.

For instance, Doc is already working behind the scenes on his very own TV show, having signed a deal with The Walking Dead creators in 2019. Before we get to that, however, he’s currently aiming to “save literature” with his own book.

Violence. Speed. Momentum. is the first written-work from the Doc and it’s fast approaching. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming memoir.

When will Dr Disrespect’s book be available?

First things first is the release date. While the announcement came back in August, we now have a solid date locked in for the book’s release.

Violence. Speed. Momentum. is set to release on Tuesday, March 30 for North American readers. 

There’s a slight difference for European fans, however, as the book goes up for sale at local retailers two days later on Thursday, April 1.

How to preorder Dr Disrespect’s new book

If you’re looking to get your hands on a copy as soon as possible, you have plenty of options when it comes to preorders.

For those in the United States, most major retailers will have the book in stock upon release. From Barnes & Noble to Amazon and plenty more, you can check all of the preorder options here.

Avid Doc fans in Canada are also able to pre-purchase the book through Amazon. Though dozens of local retailers will be stocking the release as well.

Last but not least, those in the UK are able to lock in an early copy through Penguin. The Hardback edition will run you just £14.99. Additionally, the memoir is also available as an eBook across all regions.

Doc’s origin story will be revealed in the new book.

Fitting Doc’s image to a T, his upcoming book is a glorious depiction of his ‘untold history.’ Fans will get a deep dive into his origin story for the first time, along with an unprecedented look at his rise to the streaming superstar we know today.

It’s entirely likely every page is full of tongue-in-cheek jokes and subtle references only members of the Champions Club would pick up on.

The full summary for Dr Disrespect’s book can be read below.

“Too much power. Wow. Too much energy. Wow. Too much anticipation. WOW. It’s the new memoir from the biggest star in gaming: Dr Disrespect.

Dr Disrespect is a 6-foot-8 freak of nature with a 37-inch vertical, the two-time, back-to-back 1993-94 Blockbuster Video Game Champion, and in his factual opinion, the most dominant international gaming superstar in the history of the world.

It was just a matter of time before Western civilization came begging Doc to save literature by writing a memoir that reads like a vicious, muscular lion clawing his way through the rocks, roaring in anger and dominance. Here you will find his deepest, most intimate secrets. The untold history of his mysterious, legendary origins and his rise to unparalleled dominance. And most of all, you will find out what, exactly, Doc’s a doctor of.

Are you ready for a book with the rhythm of a sleazy ’70s muscleman and the ruthlessness of a ’90s serial killer? A journey that stares down the long, dark alley of your fears and never looks back? Does your warrior’s heart yearn to reach the tippity top of the mountain just to realize you’re still only halfway up?

If so, firm handshakes, Champion: Welcome to the salvation of literature.”


Why is #FreeTommy trending? Tommyinnit responds after shock TikTok ban

Popular Minecraft YouTuber Tommyinnit has become a major trend across social media again as the internet celebrity had his TikTok account banned out of nowhere.

Tommyinnit has been one of the fastest-growing stars on the internet of late. From remarkable Twitch viewership to staggering income, his growth across a number of social platforms has been something to behold. Though there was one major setback in his way for a short period.

The popular personality was suddenly removed from TikTok on February 24. Seemingly without reason, the platform banned Tommyinnit’s account which had just climbed to over four million followers.

“TikTok just banned me,” he revealed on Twitter.

“Crushed. I am absolutely crushed. Please TikTok,” he added with a hashtag that went on to trend in a matter of minutes. “#FreeTommy.”

Having trended on Twitter just days prior, this latest viral moment comes as a result of the bad news. Thousands of loyal fans immediately jumped on the trend, spamming #FreeTommy across social media to get it trending.

There’s no denying the enormous community support had an impact as Tommy’s account was restored in under an hour.

Hundreds of tweets and thousands of impressions later, his TikTok account was back to normal. All of his videos were brought back to the platform and the creator was free to engage with fans once again.

There’s currently no telling why the sudden ban came through in the first place, however. The 16-year-old has just 18 videos on TikTok at the time of writing, most of which are simple close-ups on his face.

#FreeTommy shot to the number one trend worldwide in a matter of minutes.

While the controversy was short-lived, it goes to show that even the biggest social media stars can have their profiles erased in the blink of an eye. 

TikTok is yet to explain the reason behind this shock ban, though we’ll be sure to keep you updated if any further information comes to light.
