Popular Twitch streamer Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm has responded after being accused of misleading viewers by suggesting that he had Valorant Beta drops enabled on his channel when he did not.

The release of Valorant’s closed beta on April 7 has been an overwhelming success so far, with millions of players looking to get access to the new FPS title through Twitch drops.

Riot Games explained that to gain access to the Valorant beta, players would be chosen at random so long as they watched the eligible streamers that had ‘drops enabled’ for their channels.

Valorant had over 1.6 million viewers on Twitch for its beta launch on April 7.

Many streamers on Valorant that had eligible channels saw a massive spike in viewership, but despite not being chosen to partner with Riot for the release, Dr Disrespect apparently put ‘Drops’ in his title.

According to League of Legends interviewer, Travis Gafford, the title of Dr Disrespect’s April 8 broadcast was “Drops all day”. Gafford called the move “pretty fraudulent.”

“Heads up, Dr. Disrespect has, for the past two days, had “drops” in his title, but his stream actually isn’t flagged to drop keys. Pretty fraudulent,” Travis said.

The Doc later responded and as many would expect, he fired some shots back at Travis for exposing him by simply calling him a “Fragile, concerned little tattle teller.”

Dr Disrespect apparently changed his stream title, however, completely removing all mention of Valorant drops.

Despite receiving backlash for his stream title, Dr Disrespect did not seem to be the only one taking advantage of this tactic.

Former LoL pro and popular streamer IWillDominate claimed that there were many streamers who had been doing similar on Twitch and that it was becoming a bit of a “meme”. Gafford responded, saying that it was “disappointing if that was the case.”

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
