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.

Jake Paul claims he’s hospitalized ahead of Mike Tyson undercard fight

YouTube star Jake Paul shook up the boxing world after being confirmed for the upcoming Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. exhibition match — but his statement from a recent press conference is sparking rumors that he may not be fit to compete.

The youngest Paul brother boasts a short, if successful, boxing history; after defeating fellow influencer Deji on the undercard of Logan Paul’s August 2018 bout, Jake took his talents to the professional level, taking out YouTuber AnEsonGib in a first round KO in January 2020.

Now, Jake has been confirmed to fight on the undercard of Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. against ex-NBA star Nate Robinson — but some are wondering if he’ll even appear in the ring.

An October 29 press conference saw an unexpected development from Jake’s side, with the YouTuber-turned-boxing pro appearing from what seemed to be a hospital room.

ESPN journalist Ariel Helwani was understandably taken aback by the scenery, and asked Jake where he was — which lead to a surprising, if a bit humorous, answer.

“Uh, I’m just chilling man, I came to the hospital to get a little check up,” he replied.

When asked why he was at the hospital, the YouTuber had an even more astonishing response: “We were having a little morning practice, and my team was afraid that I was turning into Iron Man. I punched a hole through a car.”

Needless to say, it seems like Robinson isn’t worried if his opponent will show up on fight night, claiming that Paul “has to show up” in spite of his purported injury.

However, some fans are claiming that they think Paul has a black eye, or even a broken nose, although his mask admittedly makes it a bit difficult to see if these alleged injuries are for real.

This isn’t the first time Jake has taken a trip to the hospital before a fight, and it may not be his last — but considering his ambition and near-constant training, fans can expect that he will turn up for the show (although whether he will “turn out” is still up in the air).
