Dr. Disrespect is known for taking controversial stances and while the streamer has been passive for a long time, he is back in the limelight due to a bizarre statement which made the entire mobile gaming furious and attracted bad publicity. Doc bragged about his high-end PC in a Tweet and the very end, stated something very controversial.
In his tweet, Dr. Disrespect mentioned about the specifications of his PC and ended the statement by saying, “….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”
This statement was quickly noticed by some of the well-known figures from the mobile esports and gaming community and they took their turn to fire back at Dr. Disrespect.
Some famous names like HawksNest from Tribe Gaming and XSET’s PUBG Mobile roster captain Juicy poked back by dissing Doc with words like “Old Man” and calling him out for his controversial statement. Famous COD Mobile content creator iFerg even challenged Doc for a 1v1 in COD Mobile with $100,000 at stake.
A special appearance was seen among them all when YouTube Gaming Head Fwiz joined the session and roasted Doc by stating that Nobru, a mobile gaming content creator, pulls 4 times more viewers than him. His response is as follows;
The Indian PUBG Mobile community did not shy and fired back in their own style. Starting with 8bit Thug, he just posted a screenshot of Esports Awards where Mortal ranked second in the ‘Streamer of the Year’ category.
PUBG Mobile Caster K18 also made an appearance in the thread and called out Doc for his faults.
Mortal usually stays away from any controversial opinions but this time, he participated in the revolt against Doc and stated that platform does not matter, all that matters is the will to compete.
Ghatak took it to other platform to express his thoughts but stated similar things like others.
The criticism shared by Indian pros were constructive and nobody directly attacked Dr. Disrespect for his statements but looking at the past, this Tweet is almost ironic. In the past, Dr. Disrespect stated similar things and did not clarify anything until he collaborated with famous Indian streamer and PUBG Mobile pro Scout. Both of them discussed mobile gaming and Doc even went on to apologize for his past statement and shrugged it off for being a “spur of the moment thought”.
This apology can be considered as a vague statement considering the fact that Doc repeated the same words yet again. It will be interesting to see on how Dr. Disrespect will react to this and what are his future comments regarding the booming mobile gaming industry.
