Dr Disrespect reveals why he’s changed his mind on Gears 5

Dr Disrespect had some strong things to say about Gears of War 5 since its release, but after returning to the game to give it another try, he actually seems to like it. 

The popular Twitch streamer always has thousands of viewers waiting in the arena for his gaming sessions and his Gears 5 return broadcast was no different.

Having previously said that it could well be the time for the franchise to die following its September 6 release, which would suggest we wouldn’t see him playing the title any time soon, something appears to have changed his mind after giving it a second chance. 

Xbox Game StudiosGears of War 5 seems to have the Doc torn.

During his broadcast on September 16, the Two-Time gave a very different verdict on the game than what many of his fans might have been expecting, given his comments following its launch. 

“Yeah, I like the shit mechanics. It’s one of those games where it has horrific player mechanics but if you learn, it’s actually kind of fun to play horrible game mechanics,” he said. “It’s interesting. It really is. Like, it fucks with your mind a little bit, you know?”

While the Doc’s new conclusion on the game’s mechanics might not make sense to many of his fans, it seems as if he can’t really put a finger on what he likes about the game himself. One thing is for sure, though, he’s been dominating since giving it a second chance. 

In an attempt to round up the journey he’s been on with the game so far, he added: “You’ve got to go through that phase, trust me. I went through it.

“Once you get past that stage of knowing that you’ve got to deal with the clunkiness and horrific programming of player mechanics, anyways, then you start feeling out what the game’s potential is truly about. And that’s… I’m telling you. It feels really good.”

Whether or not members of the Champions Club will be seeing their favorite Internet personality jump into the world of Gears of War for much longer remains to be seen. 

He certainly seems to be enjoying it, nevertheless. 


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.
