Superstar streamer TimTheTatman discussed how unfortunate it is that he can’t play with friend and fellow livestreamer Dr Disrespect after the latter was banned on Twitch.

Since Doc’s permanent ban on June 26, the internet has repeatedly wondered “why,” but have yet to receive an answer. Sadly, the Two-Time’s ban also prevents him from being allowed to show up in other streamers’ broadcasts, as per Twitch guidelines


During a July 30 broadcast, a viewer asked Tim if he was “bothered” by the fact he wasn’t allowed to play with Doc while streaming. After a brief pause to ponder his response, Betar sighed and explained that the situation “sucks.”

“It sucks, because he’s banned on Twitch I can’t technically play with him, you know?” the 30-year-old replied. “He’s my buddy, but I don’t make the rules, bro.”

Dr Disrespect’s stream spectacles included confrontations with WWE’s The Undertaker.

According to a Twitch moderation and safety article, if “a banned user appears in a third party channel while being suspended, this could cause the ban of the channel they appear in.”

Due to this rule, Tim could put his own Twitch account at risk of suspension if he played with Dr Disrespect while live, a risk that no big streamer would ever want to take.

Unfortunately, there’s nothing really that he or Doc can do to get around this, and Betar acknowledged as much: “In the words of Doc, it’s out of my hands.”



The last quote was a reference to a mysterious music video titled “Alleyways” that Dr Disrespect recently uploaded to his Twitter, YouTube, and Instagram pages. In it, a voice-over sings that “it’s out of my hands, but I’m still in control.”

There’s still no word on what will happen next with the Two-Time; there’s a possibility he ends up taking all his speed, violence, and momentum to another platform or even his own website.

“Let’s just say all the cards are on the table. I’m more focused on just making sure whatever we do next, whether it’s a platform move or not, that it’s the right decision for the community and Champions Club that follows me,” he said in a mid-July interview.


One thing we do know for sure, however: He won’t be streaming on Twitch anytime soon, if ever, and that’s unfortunate because it also means he won’t be able to play with the platform’s biggest creators, like Tim, until if and when he’s unbanned.

Popular stand-up comedian Joe Rogan has finally revealed changes to the lighting of his new podcast studio after fans decided they hated it, following his move to Texas.

After moving his entire podcast studio near his new Texas home in early September, Joe Rogan’s followers were quick to criticize him over the “tacky” updates made to the background of his setup.


While most of his fans are used to seeing him in front of the classic red-brick wall with an American flag during his long-form conversations, his latest move saw the addition of some bizarre red lighting patterns instead.

JRE fans criticized Rogan’s studio for its “tacky” red lights in previous episodes.

The UFC commentator’s first few episodes in the new studio were subject to a lot of criticism and many fans immediately called for adjustments to be made to the new camera angles and lighting that were being used.


However, after initially addressing the hate and revealing that they had put the room together on short notice, it seems as if he has taken the feedback on board in his recent episodes, toning down the harsh red lighting that was present in the background of the show. The podcast host has now replaced the bright red light with a blue hue instead.

Since the release of his podcast with fellow comedian Colin Quinn on October 8, fans have noticed a massive improvement in the lighting and have been quite positive about the production changes that Rogan and JRE producer Jamie Vernon have made.

“Lighting is so much better, doesn’t look like you’re in front of a KFC sign” one viewer commented, while other JRE fans echoed similar compliments after the latest changes.


The majority of his viewers claimed that the quality of the episode was “significantly better” but that it could still do with some minor adjustments to bring it up to the usual standard of the popular podcast.

As Rogan has previously explained that his current studio was put together on short notice, it is quite possible that he has even more changes in store over the next few months but we’ll just have to wait and see if any further adjustments are made.
