Dr Disrespect may have earned himself a lengthy ban from Twitch after filming inside a public restroom at E3 2019, but Michael ‘shroud‘ Grezsiek thinks it was all worth it, calling it “one of the best streams on Twitch.”

It was the Doc’s first ever IRL stream, and likely his last, as the mega-popular broadcaster had his cameraman follow him all the way inside the toilets on numerous occasions.

This infraction got his account suspended and his E3 access badge revoked, and was even potentially illegal considering privacy laws in California.

But there’s no doubt that it made for some great content – not specifically the bathroom intrusions, but his interactions with fans and other convention-goers, and his jokes about ‘mobile gamers’ was all classic Doc but in a new setting.

Shroud, a big fan of his fellow streamer, watched Dr Disrespect’s entire E3 recap video, and couldn’t stop laughing throughout.

“Can we have him back please?” shroud pleaded, referring to the Doc’s ban, the length of which is still unknown, “I miss him.” Shroud explained that he had tried to meet up with him at the event, but the two didn’t cross paths.

At the conclusion of the recap video, shroud said “Oh boy, that was fucking funny. A good video right there. That was definitely one of the best stream on Twitch.

“I don’t know if it’s the best, but it was definitely up there.”

Unfortunately, there’s still no word on when Dr Disrespect’s channel will be reinstated, and so shroud and all his other fans will have to sit tight until the big return.

Upon his return, he will no doubt bring in hundreds of thousands of viewers, with ‘comeback’ streams always a big event for popular channels. 100 Thieves streamer CouRage believes that for this reason, bans are more of a help than a hindrance to big names, who can count on a celebratory comeback stream.

Dr Disrespect’s previous comeback, after he took a break for personal reasons, actually broke the record for concurrent viewership on Twitch at the time – beating Tyler1’s previous record, which was also for a comeback stream.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
