Offline TV member and Twitch streamer William ‘Scarra’ Li’s June 17 broadcast was interrupted by a police officer searching his room — an alarming incident that he explained to worried fans shortly thereafter.

Scarra, best known for his former status as a League of Legends pro and his popular Twitch streams, found himself faced with an alarming scenario after police showed up to the Offline TV house in mid-June.

Fans were concerned after an armed officer was seen searching his room on camera and shining a flashlight around the surroundings, with many assuming the content house had been swatted.

However, this was (thankfully) not the case as even he initially suspected, as Scarra explained to his audience after law enforcement had left the premises.

“Poki came in, called me upstairs, I went upstairs, cop with a gun [was] in our living room,” he explained. “The rest of the house was on the couch. So I immediately think we’re getting swatted. This is not fun.”

According to the streamer, Pokimane’s Postmates driver had contacted police out of fear that the home had been broken into, as both Scarra and Fedmyster’s car had been broken into the night beforehand.

That’s not all; the crew had also left out a slew of packages on their front lawn, leading the delivery driver to believe the home had been, as Scarra relayed, “ransacked.”

Luckily, Scarra’s story had a humorous and lighthearted ending, as the officers’ suspicions were quickly dashed after discovering the house members were merely “gamers.”

“Because of the combination of stuff, they [police] came in and they were just like, ‘Is anyone dead here? Are you guys doing f**king weird s**t here?’” he continued. “[They] looked at all the rooms and they were just like, ‘Oh, you guys are gamers.’”

“It’s an interesting way to start the day,” he said of his car being broken into. “I’m happy nothing was wrong. I filed a report, and that’s it.”

Thankfully, all members of the Offline TV house are safe and sound, despite the concerning turn of events — as well as the fate of Scarra and Feds’ vehicles, which were also relatively undamaged.

Dr Disrespect responds to backlash after roasting mobile gaming

Legendary streamer Dr Disrespect responded to all the backlash he received after comparing his monstrous gaming setup to that of a mobile gamer’s.

On November 26, the Two-Time made waves on Twitter after he described his $200,000 multi-PC setup and sarcastically asked how people can take mobile gaming seriously.

Now, the back-to-back Blockbuster video game champion responded to everyone who was upset with him claiming mobile gaming wasn’t a serious thing.

In a comedic skit, Doc pretended to play a game on an old flip phone and was clearly struggling.

“Come on, peak. Oh, I would have killed you if I had a better connection. That’s bullsh*t,” he acted before realizing the camera was rolling, causing him to slowly flip his phone shut. “How long have we been live?”

While this opening segment was played for jokes, the theme carried on with Doc talking to ZLaner about the backlash he was receiving.

“I’m getting a lot of heat these days on Twitter. I just explained what my setup was in comparison to a mobile gaming setup,” he said. “I shouldn’t even say anything anymore.”

To this, ZLaner inquired about what exactly Doc had said and if he was implying that mobile gaming was a “laughing joke.”

“Again, I just explained what my setup was,” he doubled down. “And then with all that said, do I take someone playing on a phone seriously? I mean, it was just a question.”

Furthermore, when 100 Thieves star Rachell ‘Valkyrae’ Hofstetter tried to get Doc to participate in a big Among Us stream, he declined, saying it “looks worse than a mobile game.”

While the YouTube streamer may be downplaying his remarks a touch, phrasing them as “just a question,” it didn’t stop some prominent voices from speaking up.

As Dexerto reported, things reached a boiling point when CoD Mobile player Luke ‘iFerg’ Fergie challenged Doc to a $100,000 1v1.

Dr Disrespect has been seeing success on YouTube.

This wasn’t the only challenge issued either with Elijah ‘Hawksnest’ Jackson offering a $10,000 wager against the Two-Time.

Dr Disrespect didn’t respond to either of the two challenges issued. Either way, it seems like this feud with the mobile gaming community is far from over.
