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. 


How to change your age on TikTok

Earlier in January 2021, TikTok changed the privacy rules regarding accounts for those under the age of 16, so if you need to change your age on the app to have a less restricted version of the platform, here’s how.

It’s very common when signing up to literally any website or application to put your age in wrong. Maybe you accidentally put it a year or two away from your actual date of birth or, in TikTok’s case, signups were bugged, preventing users from putting in their actual DOB.

We’ve seen the impact of this on other platforms — for example, Twitter brand accounts for new startup companies being suspended due to being ‘underage’.

So what’s the deal with TikTok, and how can you change your age on the app?

New TikTok age restrictions 2021

There are two ways for you to change your age on TikTok, though they haven’t made it particularly easy: after all, they don’t want users lying about their age, especially if you’re below the allowed age of 13.

On January 13, 2021, TikTok also strengthened their privacy settings by making every account under the age of 16 private by default, which came just months after the mass ban of multiple underaged accounts.

So, here’s what you can do to change your age.

Contact TikTok about age change

Following the aforementioned mass bans, many users who were actually above the allowed age found themselves banned, too, and TikTok addressed this with advice for users looking to make sure they weren’t banned or restricted.

They advised hitting the ‘Report a Problem’ button in-app or, if you don’t have access, emailing [email protected] with proof of age. This has to be a government-certified identification such as a passport, driving licence, birth certificate etc.

Make a new TikTok account

If you have wrongly input your age, you could make a new account

If the above isn’t possible, your best bet is to make a new account. To do so, follow these steps to log out of your current one:

  1. Click the ‘Me’ tab
  2. Tap the 3 dots at the top right
  3. Scroll down and select ‘Log Out’
  4. Then you can follow the sign-up instructions to make a new account.

We have to reiterate that we do not advise doing this if you’re planning on cheating the system and lying about your age. These privacy settings were put in place for a reason, and even if you do lie about your age this will eventually be found out anyway.

If you have legitimate concerns that your age or date of birth is wrong in the app, and if it is hindering your experience, then these tips will help.
