Adorable might not be the word Twitch viewers would typically use to describe Dr Disrespect, but a pug dressed up as him is an entirely different matter. 

The streamer has over three million followers on the live streaming platform, attracting thousands into the Champions Clubs arena every time he starts up a broadcast. 

Unlike any other high profile name on Twitch, the Doc has built up an insanely recognizable persona online – showing off his patented catchphrases, eye-catching sunglasses, red attire, and a wig dripping from head to tippy-toe in success on his head each time he streams. 

G FUELDr Disrespect is always wearing his costume, sometimes even in public.

All of those things are part of the amazing character, is there a chance that a dog might do it better?

The Two-Time was asking fans of his during the course of October to send photos of themselves dressed as the leader of the Champions Club for Doctober, a viral cosplay campaign – and there were some amazing impressions to take a look at. 

However, one featuring a cute little pug might be the best of the lot, as seen on fellow Twitch streamer P4tricia’s channel on October 31. 

After taking a break from playing Gears of War 5, P4tricia decided to show off not only her little pet, but also the impressive costume that she was able to pull off. 

The look included what appeared to be perfectly fitting glasses for the dog, as well as a miniature bulletproof vest – just like the one worn by Dr Disrespect on Twitch – and the final piece to the puzzle was, of course, a jet black wig.

If you’re wondering about what the dog is called, P4tricia didn’t hesitate in giving it a brand new character name and it’s very fitting. During this stream, “Puggy Disrespect” was born. 

p4triciattv, InstagramP4tricia confirmed Puggy Disrespect was entering the Doctober competition on the last night of October – Halloween.

The pet wasn’t the biggest fan of the wig, but for the glasses it was a different story. She seemed to love them. 

Whether or not this will be a recurring segment for her future broadcasts remains to be seen, but there’s definitely an interest from the viewers. 

With just under 3,000 followers on Twitch and the clip of Puggy Disrespect racking up over double that figure in views, at the time of writing, there’s no doubt that the character could make a return sometime soon on P4tricia’s channel.

Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
