Dr Disrespect, a recently banned Twitch streamer and is now currently a YouTube user, did not hesitate to live up to his online appellation, and lately aimed his questionable comments at the mobile gaming community. With one controversial tweet, the famous video game streamer has drawn out thousands of comments, many of them supported his opinion while more than a few got offended.
A few days ago, after bragging about his top of the line gaming configuration which includes a mechanical keyboard with Titan switches, three cutting-edge monitors, and a multi-PC setup worth $200,000, Dr Disrespect ended his tweet by questioning how mobile players have “the guts to tell me mobile gaming is a serious thing?”
Understandably, several mobile players, many of whom play professionally and earn a good amount of cash playing on the platform taunted by Dr Disrespect, were not happy about his comment at all. Among those who responded to his tweet was Call of Duty Mobile player Luke “iFerg” Fergie, who challenged Dr Disrespect to a 1 on 1 match for $100,000. Dr Disrespect will play on his over-the-top gaming PC while iFerg would face him using his mobile device. The mobile player also made clear that “no aim assist 1v1 btw.”
After making fun of mobile gamers, Dr Disrespect has been challenged to a $100,000 1v1 by Ferg. If actually accepted, it would be one of the biggest 1v1’s we have seen to date in gaming. pic.twitter.com/N9uiy4nsYW

Whether the dare was initially intended to be taken seriously, it immediately became a social media movement. Fans began swarming Dr Disrespect’s YouTube channel when he is streaming live, leaving comments such as “1v1 ferg” in the chat. The constant inflow of comments eventually resulted in the streamer restricting his chat to members only. As a response, iFerg tweeted: “What’s the problem, Doc, Mobile players getting the better of you?”
As of writing, there is no sign that Dr Disrespect will take up the challenge thrown by iFerg, but it’s possible that the teasing from viewers supporting the dare will continue until he responds in some specific manner.
iFerg wasn’t the only mobile player to be annoyed by Dr Disrespect’s tweet either. XSET’s PUBG mobile division’s team captain, juicyfruitz, responded to the streamer by stating that playing on mobile “is just too difficult for your old crusty ass fingers to navigate.”

Mobile content creator Elijah Jackson also called out to the YouTuber for his tweet as well, asking why he had to spend $200,000 just to have something that a $600 mobile phone could achieve. Taking it a step further, he also challenged Dr Disrespect to a 1 on 1 Call of Duty Mobile match, offering $10,000 on the spot. “Seriously, anywhere, anytime,” Jackson teased. “Unlike you, I really can do that on my system.”
Perhaps enraging the entire mobile gaming community is not the best idea, but this is not the first time Dr Disrespect has displayed hate for mobile gaming and it is possible that this won’t be the last. The YouTube streamer has provoked PC gamers to challenge him in the past as well.
Back in September, after he proclaimed himself as one of the best Call of Duty Warzone players, Crimsix, a three-time CDL champion challenged the streamer to back up his claim with a “1 shot, 1 kill” sniper match.
