An internet celebrity, Dr DisRespect is perhaps best known for his YouTube channel, which has gained more than 483,000 subscribers to date. An avid gamer, most of his content revolves around the games Call of Duty, H1Z1, and PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds Fortnight.
Aside from YouTube, the streamer is also popular on Twitch, a platform on which he has amassed over 2 million fans. If anything, his popularity has grown tremendously since he first started to post videos in the early 2010’s.
With that said, a recent development left fans wondering last year. In December 2017, it was revealed that the gamer had cheated on his wife. As a result, he ended up taking a hiatus, which took him away from YouTube and Twitch. To the pleasant surprise of fans, however, he soon returned to the gaming platform two months later. Nonetheless, the whole ordeal had left some questions in the air.
What has Dr Disrespect been up to since? Is he still streaming on a regular basis? Has he been posting new videos to his YouTube channel? Did the infidelity incident affect his popularity at all? What has the 36-year-old been up to lately? These are some of the things that we’ll be taking a look at below.
