Famous gaming content creator and YouTube personality Guy “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm, took the Twitter world to storm by publishing his latest tirade against mobile gaming. He mentioned the quality of his equipment and questions the seriousness of mobile gaming.
I’ve got 3 state-of-the-art 1ms speed color calibrated monitors staring at me, a keyboard with titan switch optical keystrokes and a mouse that weighs literally nothing backed by a 200k multi pc setup….
….and you have the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?

This isn’t the first time that the Doctor insulted the mobile gaming scene as he has oftentimes shared his thoughts via Twitter on multiple occasions. His previous statements would throw shade on the legitimacy of mobile gamers, trolling the community in the process.
His latest Twitter post received backlash from the community. Luke “iFerg” Fergie, an advocate for the progression of mobile games and a notable Call of Duty: Mobile influencer responded by issuing an open challenge to Dr. Disrespect.

Ryan Wyatt, the head of YouTube Gaming, retaliated by mentioning that a famous Brazilian Free Fire professional player named Bruno “Nobru” Goes earns more viewers than the Doctor.
And Nobru is pulling 4x the live viewership than you just playing from his phone 😂🤷🏼♂️

Some would try to use the Doctor’s age as a form of weakness in adapting to the current trends.
Mobile gaming is just to difficult for your old crusty ass fingers to navigate step bro. All I hear is complaining for the old geezer himself. You remind me a lot of Jiraiya, the old pervy sage himself. Ya damn OLD MAN! 😤

Guys take it easy on doc, his eyes are too old to see anything on a screen smaller than 24 inches.

Some would enlighten the Doctor regarding the rising popularity of mobile gaming, stating its convenience.
Well Dr.D not everyone can afford a good PC setup and that’s why mobile gaming is so popular in southern Asian countries..
Anyways I don’t hear any mobile gamers fighting for validation as a “Gamer”.. If u want to play in mobile and have fun who cares?!
