Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has revealed he thinks Dr Disrespect is hiding the true reason for his mystery Twitch ban, explaining his thoughts on the matter on his own stream.

Back in June, the streaming community was left baffled at the news that long time giant of Twitch, Dr Disrespect, had been banned from the platform – and seemingly without reason.

While rumors swirled, there has been no concrete reason for the indefinite ban, which is still ongoing at the time of writing, nearly four months later.

What makes the ban even more bizarre is that it came just months after Doc signed an exclusive deal to continue streaming on Twitch; a move that was rumored to cost the platform millions.

Dr Disrespect has been streaming on YouTube since he was banned from Twitch back in the Summer.

However, some streamers have floated the idea that the Doc knows why he was banned, but is choosing not to disclose the reason with his audience.

Ninja echoed these thoughts during an October 8 livestream, with the streamer back on Twitch after his own move away to Mixer.

“I don’t know what happened [with Doc],” Ninja said. “I don’t know what he did, I don’t know what Twitch thinks he did. All I have is hearsay… I don’t think they can just like ‘pull the plug’ – usually, people know what they did to get banned.”

Ninja went on to say that smaller bans tend to be more unclear, but a permanent ban – as it is rumored the Doc was handed – tend to come with concrete reasoning.

“But, a full ban, I feel like you have to know what you did,” he finished. “It sucks, man. But also, he’s kicking *ss and taking names over on YouTube… this isn’t some political bullsh*t, I can tell you that right now. Something happened. He did something ban-worthy.”

“I do believe that he might not have been told about it, I don’t think that he doesn’t know what it is. Like I would have a pretty good f**king idea, like a pretty damn good idea, of what I did to get banned, If I just randomly got banned.”

Even if the Doc hasn’t been explicitly told what the reason for his ban is, Ninja believes he will have a good idea of what caused it.

Whether a reason ever makes it into the public domain is another matter, but Ninja has joined the growing number of people who have their doubts about Doc’s knowledge of the reason behind his ban.

YouTube star David Dobrik might be known for his charitable giveaways and wholesome content, but he’s coming under fire from critics after claiming he’s not a huge fan of being out in mother nature.

For those out of the loop, David Dobrik is one of YouTube’s most popular content creators, best known for giving away huge amounts of cash to fans and those in need (as well as holding contests with such prizes as Teslas).

Despite David’s philanthropic nature, it seems that the vlogger is coming under fire from commenters online, who are upset at a statement he made during an episode of his ‘VIEWS’ podcast with fellow YouTuber Jason Nash.

In the episode, Dobrik goes on a long spiel about why he “hates nature,” explaining that roughing it in the outdoors just isn’t for him.

A post shared by DAVID DOBRIK (@daviddobrik) on

“I cannot describe to you how much I f***ing hate nature,” Dobrik began. “I never knew I could be so angry at something. I was hiking in the mountains, and everybody I saw, I was just getting angry at. I was like, ‘Why are you here?’ I was so mad!”

“It feels so wrong, because everybody loves nature,” he continued. “…what is so cool about something that’s been there… for millions of years! What is so cool about that? …it feels like everything I’ve worked for has been erased. I’m stuck with the dirt and the grass and the leaves.”

Unsurprisingly, Dobrik was promptly assailed by angry commenters who took issue with his opinions on the world around him — more specifically, on his “annoyed” attitude about something as mundane as nature.

“I don’t justify it, but now I understand the hate that you get for being so closed-minded and kind of a d**k to your friends or the planet,” one listener wrote. “I know that you have done great things like charities and donations. But DUDE, grow up a bit, you live in a bubble.”

Commenters hit out at Dobrik's nature comments.

“I thought David was cool until he said he doesn’t appreciate nature,” another chimed in. “Like what?”

While this is far from the first time Dobrik has faced backlash from his fanbase, it seems that his attitude in his recent podcast episodes are starting to turn some listeners off from the fandom.
