Dr Disrespect gives absurd advice to Fortnite World Cup pros winning millions

With the Fortnite World Cup underway in New York City, a number of young professionals are receiving life-changing prize money, and Twitch powerhouse DrDisrespect provided some unique advice for them. 

July 27 saw the Fortnite World Cup’s duos tournament, as a host of professionals took home life changing money. The winners, Nyhrox and Aqua, took home $3 million between them. It doesn’t stop there, as even the duo placing 10th split a hefty $225,000 between them.

However, many of the winners are barely teenagers, and so such large amounts of money require sensible management. For example, English teenager Jaden ‘Wolfiez’ Ashman is just 15 years old, and won $2,250,000 million between him and his duo partner.

Epic GamesThe final duo standing reflect the insane prize money being dished out.

The winners needn’t worry, however, with some of the gaming community on hand to offer sound financial advice. On July 27, SypherPK tweeted that his advice to the winners is “do not blow through that money. Enjoy it, but also get financial guidance… Make it last.”

DrDisrespect was not impressed with Sypher’s advice, dubbing it the “most stupid advice I’ve ever heard”. He followed this up by providing some (questionable) advice of his own.

“I’d buy a 2021 Lamborghini Aventador SVT blacked out everything,” he said, but that wasn’t all. “(Also) a 38’ foot offshore racing boat with matching trailer connected to a 2021 Lamborghini Urus blacked out.”

He concluded his advice by summarizing it as “just a few ideas for the winners. Trust me.”

It’s definitely not our place to suggest which piece of advice you choose to listen (Sypher’s, please), but the amount of money on offer at the Fortnite World Cup is sure to positively impact on the winners, as they are launched into the mainstream.

Sypher suggested that the Doc’s advice wasn’t useful, because the winners “wouldn’t be able to pull it off the way you would. They don’t have their drivers’ licenses yet.”

Whatever you make of it, the Doc in a Lamborghini pulling a 38 foot boat is quite an image.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
