Popular YouTuber Ethan ‘H3H3’ Klein believes that Dr Disrespect’s ban from Twitch should serve as a warning to other IRL streamers, who sometimes cross the line in the pursuit of engaging content for their viewers.

IRL streams are now some of the most popular content on Twitch, with random interactions with strangers making for some crazy and wholesome moments, such as two streamers who accidentally bumped into each other while hitchhiking in Japan.

However, the nature of such streams can also lead to unsavory moments – such as a streamer being subjected to harassment on the streets of London, just weeks after being racially abused in Germany.

Twitch: Dr DisrespectDr Disrespect’s IRL stream at E3 did not go to plan.

Recently, Twitch star Dr Disrespect was banned from the platform after livestreaming in a bathroom on multiple occasions at E3 2019, and H3H3 believes it should serve as a “wake up call” for other IRL streamers.

Speaking on his podcast, he said: “I think these IRL streamers need a wake up call because it’s a breeding ground for toxic behavior.”

The 31-year-old believes that while there is great IRL streamers, other content creators feel pressured by their audience to create interesting content and takes things too far as result, without the safety net of editing what they capture on film.

“Toxic streamers are under all this pressure to do something interesting and they push it too far,” Klein said. “You’re live in an uncontrolled environment and you have to be careful. There’s a big difference between being live in a studio.”

The length of Dr Disrespect’s ban is yet to be revealed, but the streamer sent out a response on Twitter, stating that a full-length video of the events will be released soon, and joked that his director ‘Alex’ was fired.

For now, the Champions Club will be forced to wait until the Doc regains control of his channel.

Mark ‘Markiplier’ Fischbach has given fans an update after being rushed to hospital on December 2, with the YouTube star saying he’s under observation for the next couple of days, but everything will be okay in the end.

Markiplier was admitted to hospital on November 1 for what the YouTube star, with over 27 million followers, claimed was “intense abdominal pain.”

“Hey gang, don’t want to worry you but had [to] take a quick trip to the hospital. Some intense abdominal pain but nothing life-threatening. Hopefully will be out of here in no time,” he said on Instagram.

While it’s not the star’s first trip to hospital, having been admitted a number of times in the past, including having surgery in 2015 for a blockage in his intestines, his fans were obviously concerned.

After that short statement though, he has since released a short video from hospital, detailing his “bowel obstruction” complications, and giving fans an update on when he will be healthy and normal again.

“We did a bunch of tests this morning, a lot of scans, a lot of X-rays…to see if anything was moving through me. It looked like things were moving through okay, which is good…and we’re going to observe a little bit longer,” he said on December 2.

“The doctor said that if I can have a ‘bowel movement,’ then everything is on the up and up. If you can poop then your intestines are working.”

While the YouTuber won’t be back in action for another couple of days, he has managed to avoid yet another surgery. Until then, he’s going to rest up.

“I’m going to be in the hospital for probably another night, just for observation so they can check up on me and make sure nothing is going to explode. It does look like I’ll avoid surgery this time, which is always a plus.”

Plus, Markiplier has also dismissed a fan “theory” that has cropped up. The YouTuber released a 34-minute long video on Pop-Tarts just a few days ago, with many claiming that his new blockage was revenge for that. Fischbach appreciated the humor, but nevertheless, put it to bed.

“I don’t think it was the pop tarts. I know there are a lot of theories out there about it being the pop tarts coming after me because I dared to diss Mr. Kellogg himself, but I don’t think he’s posthumously attacking me for my intestines,” he joked.
