Shroud explains why Dr Disrespect’s E3 Twitch ban wasn’t a mistake

Popular streamer Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek has revealed why he thinks Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban can’t be classed as a mistake.

Fans of Dr Disrespect were delighted when the streamer broadcasted live from E3, walking around the convention center in full ‘Doc’ gear.

The stream did eventually cause issues for the two-time, who walked into bathrooms while streaming on four occasions, with attendees in the background making use of the toilet facilities, something which is against Twitch’s terms of service, and CS:GO pro shroud suggests that if you do something as many times as Dr Disrespect did, it can no longer be classed as a “mistake.”

“Is it a mistake if you do it four times? No,” the streamer told his audience on June 13. “The first time, I can somewhat let it slide. Three times after that, there’s just nothing you can say.”

“You can maybe say something the first time, but three times after that, you know what I mean? He’ll be unbanned, but who knows about the legal side. He will be unbanned though.”

Dr Disrespect’s adventures at the E3 Expo were cut short when he was ejected from the event by security following his Twitch streaming escapades in the toilets, with a source confirming that they had taken away his pass for the conference.

The leader of the Champions Club has confirmed that he’ll be releasing a special recap video showing the best moments from the brief period he was able to stream at E3.

While many are extremely sympathetic to the Doc’s situation, it seems that shroud probably isn’t one of them, and their famed “rivalry” is likely to continue once Dr Disrespect regains control of his channel.


Mr Beast was turned down by Quibi before app went bust

Now that the not-so-popular streaming service Quibi is shutting down after it failed to receive the stardom it once hoped to achieve, some old tweets from the manager of YouTube star Mr Beast may shine some light on a missed opportunity that may have helped it stay afloat.

Over the past year or so, Quibi was thought, at least internally, to have potential to be the next big streaming service that everyone wanted to get their hands on. With large executives who used to work at Disney and big stars attached to the service, there was definitely some merit behind the idea.

Several months later, the service is shutting down, according to company founder Jeffery Katzenberg. After its failure to take off, many aren’t surprised by the news and thought it was only a matter of time before it shut its doors. If some old tweets are to be believed, however, the company once had an opportunity that would have possibly made it successful.

Back in June, Reed Duchscher, the CEO of Night Media and the business manager behind Mr Beast, stated that he and the company attempted to bring the aforementioned YouTuber onto Quibi in the past – but the people behind the service ended up saying no.

Duchscher never expounded on this, so we’ll never know the reason why the company decided to say no to someone as popular as Mr Beast. It’s possible that they never came up with a good idea for a show centered around him, although this is pure speculation and seems rather unlikely.

Regardless of the reasoning behind Quibi’s refusal, it almost certainly would have been beneficial for them. Even though the company had major stars attached to it on the outset, getting someone as popular as Mr Beast – who currently has 45 million subscribers – probably would have helped out at least a little bit.

Of course, hindsight is 20/20, and they more than likely didn’t think it was worth it back then.
