Dr Disrespect’s scarily accurate PUBG prediction leads to “hacking” phone call

Superstar Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect is no stranger to receiving parody ‘phone calls’ on his stream, and after this accurate PUBG prediction, there’s no wonder as to why.

There are very few of higher authority on PUBG, if any, than the almighty Dr Disrespect, who is one of the most prominent streamers of the popular battle royale title.

His experience with the game over the years has essentially turned gameplay into muscle memory, which was on full display during his August 27 livestream.

Chilling in Severny with just 66 players left in the lobby, the Two-Time noticed a loot plane flying high above where he was located.

While this in itself is not anything uncommon, what follows was an insanely accurate prediction by the Doc, one that had his Twitch chat reeling.

GfuelThe Doc loves a phone call or two on stream.

As the plane approached, he started speaking in a way that made it sound like he was conversing with the pilot.

“You’re not going to drop that in three, two, one, right on my head, are you?” Sure enough, the crate dropped right at the exact end of the countdown, leading to a swift ‘phone call’ on the Doc’s flip-phone cellular device.

“Yeah, this is the two-time,” the Doc opened with. “No I’m not hacking, I just play the game a lot. I know there’s two other guys in there—yeah yeah, I’ll take care of it.”

However, shortly after the phone call ended, the Twitch star was led to his demise. As he went to collect the crate, he was attacked from two different angles and downed within a minute of hanging up. “He knew, and he drove up.”

The phone call on stream is a classic Dr Disrespect segment, often using it after he lands a nutty shot or an insane prediction. 

Fellow streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek is often on the other end of the line when the Two-Time answers his phone, such as when he rang while in the shower after witnessing the Doc hit an impressive snipe. 

It’s part of his showmanship, and adds a little extra dimension to his streams.

Tayler Holder responds to claims he stole Corey La Barrie’s merch design

TikTok star Tayler Holder is being accused by critics of stealing a design from late YouTuber Corey La Barrie, which he will use on his own upcoming line of merchandise.

For those unaware, Corey La Barrie was a fairly popular YouTuber who tragically passed away on May 10 due to a fatal car accident.

Fellow YouTuber and tattoo artist Daniel Silva was also involved in the accident, and was driving the car during the time of the crash. According to reports from TMZ, Silva was allegedly driving under the influence of alcohol, and was later arrested on murder charges.

In wake of La Barrie’s passing, it seems that TikToker Tayler Holder has chosen to use the YouTuber’s slogan and logo for his own upcoming merchandise line — which has left some fans of La Barrie quite unhappy.

The logo and slogan in question are an important reminder to La Barrie’s viewers; the slogan reads “Under Appreciated,” with the letters “nde” crossed out, so that it reads “U R Appreciated.”

The logo features a pair of angel wings above the slogan — a design that Holder has also tattooed on his forearm.

After advertising the upcoming line on his Instagram stories, Holder was met with a wave of backlash from fans who accused him of outright stealing La Barrie’s design.

However, Holder argued that he partnered up with La Barrie’s family to produce the upcoming merchandise, contrary to critics’ initial accusations.

“Corey has been a very, very good friend of mine for a few years now,” Holder explained. “I always thought the message behind the ‘Under Appreciated / U R Appreciated’ was so, so powerful. With him passing away, I wanted to carry that on.”

That’s not all; Holder claimed that he would be donating a percentage of the line’s profits to Corey’s foundation, and further explained that the merch also includes all of the tattoos on his forearm — not just Corey’s U R Appreciated logo.

“I want to make it clear that this is very meaningful to me, and I partnered with Corey and his family,” he continued. “I would never, ever just take something like this and make it my own.”
