Twitch streamer walks off after being baited by brutal donation message

A Twitch streamer had to take a moment and walk away from his stream after being baited by a seriously brutal donation message.

Brodie is a partnered Twitch streamer that does the occasional ‘Just Chatting’ broadcast alongside his gameplays of games such as Minecraft and Fortnite Battle Royale.

The Australian is usually pretty high-energy and charismatic, able to have a laugh with his viewers and whichever friends he is playing with at the time. However, this donation message completely caught him off guard for a number of reasons.

Instagram: brodiecctv Streamer Brodie couldn’t believe how badly he had been baited by this hilarious Twitch message.

After receiving a $1 donation, brodie started to cheer for the donation and the start of the message. Then, it took a turn.

“Hey brodie, I don’t care what these haters say about you,” it started. “Your stream saved my life. I was in a coma for four years straight. One day the nurse came in and turned your stream on. Miraculously, I awoke! Just so I could get up and turn that sh*t off.”

At first, he started to celebrate the donation, before it took a somber turn and he toned it down. Then, you can see the realization begin to dawn on his face that this might not be the fanfare it looked like. He calmly threw his headset down and walked away in mock frustration as the message ended.

Continuing the joke, brodie then asked his mods to ban the viewer for the message. They said no and he laughed, saying it “shows how much authority I have in this chat.”

The joke used is similar to one that has floated around on the internet for a while, mainly to target bands or artists “coming on the radio” and thus resurrecting the comatose patient to turn off a song they don’t like.

However, it’s not often you see it used on streamers – and what a perfect reaction it got.

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.
