Twitch Streamer Denied Emote of His Own Logo After Dr DisRespect Complained About Trolls

Following Dr DisRespects recent outbursts about trolls mocking him on Twitch by spamming certain emotes, Twitch is now preventing channels from creating certain emotes.

The mocking began after Dr DisRespect made his infidelity public in late 2017, and as expected a few trolls came around.

However the problem became more serious for the Doc, as chat emotes, namely a channel emote from another popular streamer Forsen, were spammed in his chat.

Dr DisRespect was convinced that these emotes were mocking him particularly for being unfaithful, and soon after the emotes mysteriously disappeared from a total of 29 channels.

Now however, it has become clear why the emotes were removed.

A Hearthstone YouTuber and streamer, “Disguised Toast” attempted to add an emote for his logo – which has dark shades and a moustache.

Unfortunately, the logo bears a resemblance to the Forsen emote and others which were deemed to mock Dr DisRespect, and so Disguised Toast was denied the emote under grounds of ‘harassment’.

Of course, the emote is in no way targeting Dr DisRespect, but it was either manually or automatically denied by Twitch, as it bears such a similarity.

It is part of Twitch’s partner agreement that streamers cannot target or harass other partner’s, however this case seems to be taking that rule to its most stringent application.


TSM Hamlinz finally breaks Twitter silence after four-months away

Hamlinz has been missing in action for quite some time, but the beloved Fortnite streamer has finally broken his silence on Twitter on Oct. 25, and let the world know he is back and feeling good.

Darryle ‘Hamlinz’ Hamlin was once a pillar in the streaming world. He shot to fame while streaming Fortnite during its peak, and his popularity rose even more after he joined Team Solo Mid.

However, the beloved streamer has been on the down-low for several months now; in fact, he has been silent on social media for most of the year. 

Hamlinz tweeted every now and then between January and March, and even streamed a couple of times. But he was far less active than he used to be, and hadn’t posted at all since July.

Many speculated he might have been on another hiatus. The first one happened when he needed some time off to deal with a nasty cyst. The second one happened not long after when he needed some time to deal with personal issues.

Hamlinz was once one of the most popular streamers alongside Shroud and Ninja.

Hamlinz is back and feeling like his old self again

Thankfully, he bounced back on both those occasions, and it seems like he’s bounced back once again. The full extent of what happened this time around remains unclear. However, the most important thing is that Hamlinz has finally broken his silence on social media.

“Feeling like my old self again,” he wrote. It’s a little more than one hour old, but the tweet has already amassed 50,000 likes, 6,5000 retweets, and 6,000 comments.

The hype is real, and for a good reason. Hamlinz is one of the most entertaining, likable, and talented streamers in the world. Plus, it’s always nice to see people recover from whatever issues they’re facing and get back on their own two feet.

The comments are filled with people happy to see him back. “Finally something good in 2020,” wrote one fan. “Hamlinz is BACK BABY,” wrote another.

Sadly, Hamlinz has remained tight-lipped on whether he will stream again anytime soon. However, considering he is feeling like his old self again, it could mean that a stream might not be too far away.

Either way, there’s no doubt that it will be a momentous occasion. If the excitement in the comments is anything to go by, the floodgates will open and his fans, followers, and viewers will come pouring in.

Hamlinz has more than five million followers across Twitch, Twitter, and Youtube. It seems all the time off hasn’t dampened his popularity in the slightest.
