YouTube star Felix ‘PewDiePie‘ Kjellberg weighed in on Dr Disrespect‘s Twitch ban during his June 20 video, and explains why his bathroom streaming wasn’t a “big deal.”

PewDiePie is well-known for giving his opinions on questionable topics, and has been embroiled in his own fair share of controversy himself.

The Swedish star has now weighed in on Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban in his June 20 YouTube video, where he looked over laws and rules, and gave his opinion on the bathroom debacle.

Twitch: Dr DisrespectThe Two-Time was banned from both Twitch and E3 after streaming in a public bathroom.

PewDiePie’s thoughts on Dr Disrespect 

In the video titled ‘We need to talk about these Oopsies’, the YouTuber explained the reason behind Doc’s ban, and talked about his streaming in a public bathroom being against Twitch’s Community Guidelines: “He clearly went against the rules and that’s just how it is.”

“Obviously I understand why people want bathrooms to be a private space, and that should not be violated, I get it,” he continued, before breaking into laughter. “At the same time, I don’t see the big deal. What do people think happen in the boys’ locker room? I have never seen a penis in a boys’ locker room or a men’s bathroom. Unless you specifically [look], you’re not gonna see some pee-pee.”

The Swede then addresses the E3 event’s policy itself, saying, “A lot of people have been saying ‘but there was a kid in one of their urinals, ahhhh!’ but checkmate, liberals – kids aren’t allowed at E3. Maybe you should try and ban him instead, huh?”

PewDiePie moves on to look at California law section 647, a legislature that specifically talks about public privacy. It states that an individual is only guilty of misdemeanor if they deliberately violate another person’s reasonable expectation of privacy. “Was it Dr Disrespect’s intent to invade the privacy of a person in [the bathroom]? I think that’s arguable. From the footage of this, it’s just following him into the bathroom stall, it’s not trying to show other people.”

(Dr Disrespect topic starts at 11:56 timestamp.)

When will Dr Disrespect return to Twitch?

There’s been no official word on when Twitch will let the Two-Time return to the platform, but according to a comment made by a fan on Reddit, TSM streamer and Doc’s frequent battle royals partner Colton ‘Viss’ Visser claimed that his ban is for 30 days.

It is possible that Doc’s ban is permanent, as he heavily breached the service’s Community Guidelines, however this seems unlikely as this is the first time he has been reprimanded for breaking the platform’s rules.

If Dr Disrespect has indeed been banned for 30 days, viewers could expect to see him back around July 10, although obviously this is just speculation.

Hopefully we will see the Two-Time back on our screens soon for some more “violence, speed and momentum.”

Cosplay

Top 5 Dr Disrespect ‘Doctober’ Halloween cosplays

Dr Disrespect’s Halloween ‘Doctober’ contest has returned and with it, fans of the Two-Time have unveiled their best cosplays of the legendary streamer.

Given Doc’s larger-than-life personality and outfit with the red vest, black mullet, mustache, combat boots and sunglasses, he’s cosplay material.

The contest is simple, post a picture of yourself dressed as Doc and tweet it with the hashtag #Doctober for a chance to win prizes from the Two-Time himself.

While Dr Disrespect hasn’t picked his winners yet, here are five Doctober cosplays we think are deserving of tasting victory.

There’s a lot in this photo that makes it stand out from the crowd. Primarily, it’s the theme of the 1993/1994 BlockBuster video game championship that Doc has built his “Two Time” moniker around.

For one, you have the podium with the Doc cosplayer standing above two children as a man dressed as a BlockBuster employee hands out a trophy.

The BlockBuster video cases in the back keep the immersion intact while a Sega Genesis shows what appears to be NBA Jam. This was just well-done in general.

This one amplifies the Halloween aspect of the cosplay with some horror elements going on.

The cosplay itself is well done with the sweat pants featuring the logo, vest, mullet and sunglasses all intact. Meanwhile, the background features a spooky full moon and peashooters dropping in.

On the ground, the zombified hand reaching out of the grave secures its place on our list primarily for the Halloween theme.

Working together with your spouse on a cosplay deserves some credit, and that’s exactly what this couple did to recreate Mrs Assassin’s Instagram photo.

This unique cosplay has the wife standing on her husband with a knife by his throat – perfectly emulating the original.

Her husband’s pose as Doc is also extremely well-done, so this one is definitely a serious contender.

Cruzader1993

This is most likely the most standard Doc cosplay on this list, but it looks so authentic we couldn’t not mention it.

Nothing fancy, just an extremely well-crafted Doc outfit equipped with an authentic mustache. It just works, and it does so perfectly.

Kids dressed up as Doc is nothing new, but there’s something about a five-year-old with a mullet drinking G-Fuel that is downright hilarious.

As far as the outfit goes, once again, this kid’s parents nail it – all the boxes are checked. It also really helps that the boy’s attitude while posing for the video seems to match Doc’s energy, which is a major plus.

There is only one day left until Halloween, so it’s not to late for you to enter the contest itself and show the YouTube streamer what you’ve got.
