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.

Card

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.”

Jake Paul KO’s Nate Robinson in just two rounds: recap

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson finally stepped into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup, but Jake Paul dominated and wrapped it up early.

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight was a little different. He fought former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout, and it was a dominant performance.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

Jake Paul dominates Nate Robinson, Round 2 KO

Nate Robinson looked anxious right out of the gate, but it didn’t stop him from having an energetic start. He came in with his fists flying and tried to assert his dominance early on, although he looked a little clumsy at times.

Still, it wasn’t long before Jake Paul’s superior experience and skillset started to show. He dished out a series of calculated strikes and hugs to stop Nate in his tracks. It totally slowed down the momentum and even reversed it.

From that point onwards, Jake Paul was never in doubt. He downed Nate Robinson towards the end of the first round, but the former NBA star managed to get back on his feet and stay in the fight.

However, it didn’t last much longer. Jake Paul continued to dominate in the second round and sent Nate crashing down once again. He managed to get up one last time, but Jake Paul absolutely flattened him with an impressively powerful punch to knock him out and seal the deal.

Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr. fight card

As for who else was in action on the card, it wasn’t full of YouTubers or other side shows like some of Paul’s other fights, but instead, actual professional bouts. Former undefeated light-heavyweight star Badou Jack was in action, moving to Cruiserweight, while the highly anticipated matchup between Tyson and Jones Jr was an electrifying affair.

  • Mike Tyson vs Roy Jones Jr
  • Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson
  • Badou Jack vs Blake McKernan
  • Hasim Rahman Jr vs Rashad Coulter
  • Jamaine Ortiz vs Nahir Albright
  • Irvin Gonzalez vs Edward Vasquez
  • Juiseppe Cusumano vs Nick Jones

All in all, it was an impressive performance by Jake Paul. Of course, he was widely expected to win since he’s been in the game for longer than Nate Robinson.

Still, he moved and punched like a true professional, and has already set his sights on what’s next.
