Twitch streamer Michael Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Pro-Am – at the expense of Dr Disrespect.

The much-anticipated release of Modern Warfare had many fans excited to see some of the top esports stars and celebrities team up before the launch of the new Call of Duty title to showcase new maps and modes.

Former CS:GO pro shroud was matched up with the Golden State Warriors star D’Angelo Russell for the Pro-Am and the pair found themselves battling against some of the top Call of Duty pros to raise money for charity.

Respawn EntertainmentShroud and Dr Disrespect often trade insults between each other.

During a break in the action the pair began chatting and shroud, who was livestreaming his own point of view on his channel, began to uncover how much D’Angelo knew about Twitch and other streamers on the platform.

After learning that D’Angelo had known of him before their duo was matched together, Shroud decided to flex on his fans and revealed how surprised he was, saying, “Chat I just want to flex for a second, he knew who I was, which is actually kinda crazy I did not expect that.”

Shroud’s fans were also curious if D’Angelo had heard of popular Twitch streamer, Dr Disrespect, claiming that the Doc was just as much of an athlete as the NBA star.

However, unfortunately for Dr Disrespect, D’Angelo had no idea who the Doc was, simply replying with “who’s that?” when shroud had questioned him about the Two-Time.

Shroud often shares hilarious back and forths with Dr Disrespect on stream such as roasting his Call of Duty skills in the past, so getting more bragging rights over the Doc is likely something that shroud would be quite happy about.

The six-team charity event lasted for a few hours in total and saw some incredibly entertaining moments such as rapper Vince Staples poking fun at the former CoD World Champion, Scump.

Although Shroud is highly regarded for his incredible skill on any game he picks up, the Duo of Scump and Karl-Anthony Towns managed to get the better of his team in the semi-final before going on to claim victory at the Pro-Am.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg was stunned after a company copyright claimed his Meme Review with JJ ‘KSI’ Olatunji. The Swede lost all the revenue for the upload due to their awful performance of “My Heart Will Go On” from Titanic. 

On November 22, PewDiePie teamed up with fellow YouTube star KSI for an epic Meme Review. The duo tackled everything from British culture to Olatunji’s boxing match with Logan Paul.

Kjellberg later revealed on Instagram that the popular video had been copyright claimed by a company. The personality called the move “bulls**t” after the corporation took all the revenue over their Titanic joke.

The YouTubers’ awful performance of My Heart Will Go On got the video claimed for copyright.

PewDiePie & KSI’s Meme Review copyright claimed

PewDiePie’s Meme Review with KSI was a major hit on the platform, pulling in over 7.3 million views in just a few days. Fans of both YouTube creators were treated to a hilarious collaboration. However, the duo’s “attempt” to perform My Heart Will Go On on a flute and alpine horn caused the video to get claimed.

Kjellberg revealed the issue on his Instagram story on November 25. “So I got a claim on my KSI video. At the end, we played My Heart Will Go On,” he said, before playing a clip of their awful performance to demonstrate how absurd the claim was. “It’s too similar!” he joked.

It turns out the YouTuber had appealed the claim, but was denied. “So I appealed it, because its bulls**t why, and they rejected it! This is actually infringing on copyright according to this company!” he exclaimed, before breaking into laughter.

The 31-year-old explained that the company was now going to get 100% of the money made off the popular upload. “So all the revenue now goes to this company for the entire video. Like, what? Yeah, I just thought it was bulls**t, I don’t even know.”

The whole scenario is made all the more ridiculous when you consider that the Titanic joke was only a few seconds in a 26 minute upload. The fact that the company now gets to own the entire video is a good example how YouTube’s content ID system can sometimes be flawed.
