A Twitch streamer has broadcasted himself kicking his roommate out of his apartment, explaining that he simply doesn’t want her there anymore.

On January 15, ‘tehsyntax’ went live on Twitch, with his stream titled “Kicking a freeloader out of my apartment. Not clickbait shes on her way here now from work.”

Shortly after the woman arrived at the apartment, tehsyntax confronted her and asked her to leave immediately, initially taking her by surprise completely.

“We gotta talk for a second” the streamer said, “I’ve got to take my space back, so we should probably figure something out.”

Not realizing the immediacy of the request, the woman apologized “for all the drama” and said she could get our stuff out, asking “when do you need me out by?”

“It would probably be ideal, like, now,” the streamer replied. Surprised, the woman responds “wow, wow, can we talk about this?” To which he promptly says “no. I just don’t want you here anymore.”

“Is it because I’m not putting out?” the woman asks, but tehsyntax explains it’s simply because he doesn’t want her there anymore.

“I haven’t had a roommate since 2013, and I hated it then,” he concludes, clearly not budging on his position.

The woman explains that she can’t take everything at that moment, as she has nowhere to take it, but he simply suggests she take it to a hotel room instead.

The woman explains that she has offered to pay rent in the past, but the streamer explains that there are apparently legal issues with the lease that make it unfeasible.

As for why he streamed the eviction, he explained in a chat comment, “I let a friend crash at my place for free but she thinks she owns the f**king place. She also locked me out of my own apartment and fed my dog popcorn making him very sick. Wanted to record this for the record so she [doesn’t] claim some crazy sh*t but figured [why] not stream it.”

He also explained that the woman had been there for two weeks. He suggested that squatter laws may have caused legal issues if his friend had stayed for longer.
Once the woman had left, he addressed his stream, clarifying that he doesn’t believe it’s against Twitch community guidelines to secretly stream someone when in his own property.
However, Twitch does have strict privacy rules, which prohibits “Sharing content that violates another’s reasonable expectation of privacy, for example streaming from a private space, without permission.” It’s unknown if this broadcast falls under these terms, given it was tehsyntax’s property.

Dr Disrespect trolls mobile gamers and players take the bait

Dr Disrespect has taken a cheeky swipe at mobile gamers on Twitter, asking how anybody can even consider it to be a “serious” way to play – but players are fighting their corner. 

The Two-Time has had a whirlwind 2020 by all accounts. He’s moved platforms from Twitch to YouTube, and while some might have expected his influence on the gaming world to perhaps decrease in that move – he’s still one of the best at stirring the pot.

Of course, a lot of franchises that made their name on PC and console, like Call of Duty, PUBG, FIFA and Fortnite, have brought their games to iOS and Android.

Though, Doc doesn’t seem to be a fan.

Dr Disrespect takes aim at mobile gamers

Dr Disrespect has turned into a mainstream symbol of the streaming world, and sure knows how to get people talking.

On November 26, literally out of nowhere in vintage Doc style, he decided to joke about the idea of playing games on mobile.

He said: “I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”

As you might expect, he’s sparked a huge debate in the replies – with some arguing for and against his point of view.

One user, by the name of Yettobegin, said: “Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries.. Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!”

If you thought that was a strong response, wait until you see this.

Tribe Gaming’s Ferg challenged the self-professed best video gamer in the world to a 1v1 in CoD Mobile, with $100,000 on the line. As of writing, that has not been accepted, but it shows there’s certainly a lot of people out there wanting to prove him wrong.

This was not the only challenge, with Elijah Jackson offering a $10,000 wager of his own.

XSET Juicy, who plays PUBG Mobile competitively, also fired back – saying maybe gaming on mobile is too “difficult” for Doc to handle.

Nothing might come from this or Dr Disrespect actually might take up one of the offers, in a way to shoot down mobile gamers who stand in his way.

No matter what, though, he’s certainly achieved his objective of drumming up some debate. What happens next should be interesting.
