Veteran streamer DrDisrespect hilariously mocked NICKMERCS and TimTheTatman, roasting them for their affiliation with Twitch as the streaming platform continues to baffle viewers over its word censorships.  

There are few streamers as charismatic and outspoken as Dr Disrespect. The mustached ‘online gaming community’ entertainer can regularly be found roasting his fellow streamers, generally in the good-natured way he has established as a trademark of his humor.

Despite his prominence, he is in a minority of the world’s biggest streamers in the fact that he streams on YouTube. Most fans will remember the controversy surrounding his indefinite ban from Twitch, for which a concrete reason has still not emerged. As a result, he has joined the likes of Valkyrae and CouRage on YouTube.

His absence from Twitch was the main ammunition for his roasting of Nick ‘NICKMERCS’ Kolcheff and Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar, both of whom remain on Twitch.

Doc has been streaming on YouTube since his acrimonious (and rather bizarre) departure from Twitch.

The clash came about following a Dexerto tweet, which showed NICKMERCS and Tim as the top two of the most-watched Warzone streamers in 2020. NICKMERCS initially became involved to defend himself and Ninja, which prompted Doc to take some hilarious shots of his own.

“I give NICKMERCS and TimTheTatman’s streaming careers another 2 months and then they’re done, for good. Buh bye,” he jibed.

TimTheTatman didn’t take his time crafting an elaborate reply, simply stating: “Shut up you little short b*tch.”

Further jibes followed, with Tim claiming he’d beat Doc at any sport he chose. This is when the mustached maverick turned his insults to Twitch, joking that Betar sounded “like simp virgin talking like that”.

The comments refer to Twitch’s rules to ban the words “simp” and “virgin” from the platform, along with related words. People using them in a pejorative manner, repeatedly, could receive bans.

While Twitch certainly has an issue with toxicity, many have been left baffled by the new rules, which they argue go nowhere to tackling the platform’s genuine problems.

Tim’s response was to drag the platform’s support account into the argument. Unsurprisingly, they didn’t reply.

The exchanges shouldn’t be taken seriously, with the Doc and others well known for their comical back and forths. We’re giving this round to the Doc, though.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
