While streaming Vikkstar’s Warzone Showdown tournament, Nadeshot spoke with the banned Dr Disrespect, violating Twitch’s policies. In response to chat’s concerns, he expressed how shocking it would be if Twitch banned him, too.

Nadeshot, the founder of 100 Thieves and former Call of Duty pro, has been streaming on Twitch since it was known as Justin.tv. He cited that longstanding experience with the platform to explain why it would be bizarre and disrespectful for the streaming service to ban him simply for chatting with a banned opponent during the game.

Competing in Vikkstar’s Warzone tournament, Nadeshot and his teammate, Rated, were pitted against Dr Disrespect and ZLaner. Before the match, the group spoke in the pregame lobby – and Nadeshot did not mute the Doc, who has been permanently banned from the platform since late June. Per Twitch’s suspension policies, suspended users may not appear or participate in others’ channels. 


Given the platform’s rules against allowing suspended players to participate in others’ channels, Nadeshot’s chat immediately erupted in concern for their beloved streamer. He assuaged those concerns by expressing his surprise that Twitch would even consider it: “Man, Twitch really gonna ban me for talking to Doc in-game? Ah, come on, bro. What are they going to do?”

He elaborated to cite his longstanding relationship with the platform, with Doc’s voice still echoing in the background. “They ban me, I’ve been on here since Justin.tv. They gotta make a decision there. No respect. No respect.”


But Nadeshot wasn’t the only participant in the tournament to speak with the Doc while streaming, as a later match saw the Call of Duty League and Dallas Empire’s Ian ‘Crimsix’ Porter speak with Doc before their match, as well. Unsurprisingly, the two engaged in some friendly banter, much to the delight of Crimsix’s chat.


Crimsix and Dr Disrespect’s talk broached the uncomfortable subject of gifting subs, a subject quickly moved away from, as it touches on the Doc’s permanent ban. As of yet, no one knows why exactly Dr Disrespect was banned and he has, since then, not been heard on any Twitch streams.

As of yet, Twitch has not levied out bans to Nadeshot or Crimsix. In the past, streamers have received bans for this breach of policy, but it is unclear whether or not the streaming platform will consider these short-lived offenses problematic enough to warrant temporary suspensions for the popular streamers.

Rapper Future has had an incredible career spanning over several decades. In that time, he’s risen through the ranks to become a household name in the rap/hip-hop genres. Now, he’s revealed the latest addition to his garage in the form of this crazy one-off Chevrolet Blazer.

Future – real name Nayvadius DeMun Wilburn – is an American rap artist from Atlanta, Georgia. In his time as a musician, he has amassed a number of awards and released several critically-acclaimed albums and tracks.

With a car collection including Lamborghinis, Rolls-Royces, and Bentleys, he has now revealed his latest addition.

Standing out from his collection of ‘typical’ exotic cars, Future has now taken delivery of his custom-commissioned Chevrolet K5 Blazer truck from renowned tuners RingBrothers.

This fully-restored, one-off build looks absolutely incredible and will stand out among Future’s other ‘stock’ cars. Finished in British Racing Green, this is a color that was not available from factory, and was used only for his personal build.

The exterior has been left mostly stock other than the color change, but the front headlights have been upgraded to LED units. Not only have the headlights been changed, but also the wheels – the stock items being replaced by a set of 18″ gold HRE wheels.

Inside, the car has been completely re-trimmed in brown leather, with a number of embossed logos throughout. The factory analog dials have been refreshed, but a 10″ touchscreen has been fitted to the dash. This is coupled to an uprated JL audio system – a key upgrade for a musician such as Future.

Future unveiled the truck on his Instagram:

Underneath the hood is the biggest upgrade to the car – a complete engine and transmission swap. The stock motor has been ditched for a 6.2l LS3 V8, coupled to an uprated GM automatic transmission. With 430hp on tap, Future will have plenty of fun driving this custom truck around.

RingBrothers co-owner Mike Ring is justifiably proud of the result: “We’re humbled that people continue to come to us for special projects like this.”

“We realize that our customers could get a new Ferrari or Lamborghini but choose us instead. It’s an honor we don’t take lightly, so we put our heart into each project. We’re glad Future appreciates that.”
