Popular Twitch streamer DrDisrespect shared a heart-warming moment with a fan during his April 16 broadcast, congratulating the viewer for the hard work they've put into turning their life around.

Few streamers are as revered as DrDisrespect. Known for his trademark eccentricity, passion, and moustache, the creation of Guy Beahm has sat at the top of Twitch for a number of years. It looks set to continue, with the two-time recently announcing a Twitch exclusivity deal.

One thing viewers love from the Doc is the unique way he communicates with fans. Whether its throwing hilarious shade at those using advert blockers, or roasting viewers for asking him to play a certain game, no one on the internet interacts with their fans in quite the same way.

Away from roasting his viewers, the Doc has also become known for his big heart when it comes to more serious issues. This is a characteristic he demonstrated again on April 16, when a viewer sent the Doc an inspiring message.

"'I know you hear this a lot'," he read. "'But thank you. In a few weeks, I'll be clean from drugs for four years and your stream has been with me the entire time'. Ah man that makes me feel good Lenny, you made my day right there."

"You made my day, you really did," The Two-Time continued. "I appreciate you man, good stuff. Keep going. Keep going baby. That's a good read right there, I like that."

While the Doc quickly returned to Warzone, many viewers appreciated the quaint moment between him and the subscriber.

It's just another testament to the close relationship streamers can foster with their viewers, to the point of genuinely helping them to turn their lives around.
