Dr DisRespect Interview: One Week Before Admitting to Adultery

We talk to Dr. Disrespect one week before he made the announcement that could change the direction of his career.

123

Dr. Disrespect has made waves among PUBG streamers and players for quite a while, now. This week, he made an announcement tantamount to a tsunami: He'd been unfaithful in his marriage, and would be taking time off to get his personal life in order and re-evaluate his professional goals. We caught up with Dr. Disrespect, who won Trending Gamer at this year's Game Awards, one week before the announcement to chat about his persona, his bulletproof mullet, and other topics.

          You dont know how your moral judgement might be tested when within 1 year you go from average joe to over 1 million followers.

          Dude became an internet superstar and had the adoration of thousands daily spamming him for attention. The guy is human, who knows how many fans threw themselves at him. People are human, they make mistakes. We have all had that instinctual urge to just fuck. Besides we dont know the details.

          Everyone just wants to sit on their moral high horse from across the country and judge. He probably more women throwing ass per hour at him then you have your entire life. That shit does something to a guy. It fucks you up. You need to be very head strong to temptation.

              I'm pretty sure 90% of people here who think there is no chance, ever, that they could be unfaithful to their spouse are full of shit.

              Most of us don't want too, and can't imagine it, but in the right state of relationship (ie bad, unloving, dead bedroom) and in the right situation, I think you might be surprised who succumbs and does something they regret. Given how many marriages experience infidelity, I'm not sure this guy automatically needs to be seen as some piece of shit, instead of someone who made a dumb mistake.

              Honestly, I'm surprised at the venom here and how judgmental everyone is.

              we make choices and act on our own volition. some of us are indeed confident we would never betray our wives, husbands, partners, because we have bigger hearts than that and could never hurt them that way

              can spare me the sob story about a video game streamer who just couldn’t resist some ass at a convention or whatever the fuck. dude had a choice and blew it.

        I understand that you guys have to spice titles up a little in the interest of SEO, but are you really calling him out for marketing himself in the comments of this video? I'm not one to call clickbait for no reason, but come on dude. I realize that you put in the work to ask him questions and do the interview, but his adultery has nothing at all to do with the title of this video. It's an interview (a short one at that) and then the word adultery tacked on at the end for clicks. If the video can't stand on its own, bringing up irrelevant details in the title isn't going to help.

                      sure, ok. average viewerbase is a good metric, but let's go with something that isn't only about how many viewers he gets when he streams (since a lot of streamers stream at the same time, and steal viewers from each other). let's go by 'most watched' then (again, from your own link). it's a good base metric, since it's kind of a culmination of everything

                      #1: shroud: 1.7m
                      #12: drdisrespect: 767k

                        by my calculation if he had shroud's live hours he'd be at 1.6m, back up to top 4 or 5

      When you have a website you can publish whatever you want. Here you’re a chatty user. Quit the bitching.

                What? I have no problem with what I do for work. Is there a moral quandry? Sure. But then I remember that I work from home, am paid very well, insurance is amazing, coworkers are awesome, I've been there 10 years and I've paid my dues. When I say no, they know not to do it. I have ample time to pursue any project I want, when I want, how I want. I built what the website infrastructure is today. I've been through it all (in my line of work). I am constantly challenged by myself to learn new ways, and the company gives me that freedom.

                All while in my underwear. And I never graduated highschool, never set foot in a college.

                I love my job, it's exactly what I want to be doing, and it's right up my alley. Pretty much no one gets to say that.

                Shit on me all you want, I'm happy (and drunk!)

                  Trl:dr: "i have no formal education or moral/ethical qualms about what I do and stumbled my way into success in a position that pays me for doing my part in making the world a shittier place but I'm going around throwing shade other peoples workplace on the issue of the editorial on the front page because I have no self-awareness or shame."

                  how did I do? I didn’t really want to but I figured since I gave virus shit for his post you are equally if not more deserving (even though I disagree with him on the issue).

        How do you allow something like this to go up next to something as great as the stuff that David Craddock writes? It cheapens everything else on the site.

        And, with the amount of time that most people have been around here, we have more than earned the right to call out bs like this.

          Pretty much this. Also: This idea that readers (OK, occasional readers, more often shitposters) of a website shouldn't comment on editorial decisions even if they just now discovered the site for only this one thing is strange

          This is like when people go "but they also have this other great journalistic content that is only made possible by this" when anyone thinks a buzzfeed list is shitty and unnecessary - sure they're right, but then what do we get? A situation where no-one is supposed to criticize anything (subjectively ofc) "bad" anyone does, as long as the producers bank rolls something "better" based on the bad.

          You literally have no right to complain, and on top of that to complain IN THE THREAD ITSELF is not only detrimental to new users coming here to find his article, but to the chatty itself for airing grievances out in the open about content that generates revenue.

            If I've been coming to your house for years and feel comfortable enough that when you get a new couch, I'll tell you your couch sucks, especially if you've invited opinion/feedback in the past on other things.

            they publish to the internet and we are free to comment. a lot of people think it's insensitive to lump a random 3rd party clip of an interview to his cheating. let's flip the picture and say this guy died? how would it reflect if the post was "interview with a man weeks before he died, you won't BELIEVE what he said!"?

        I'm not surprised that you of all people have not the capacity to understand what about a headline like this annoys folks but when even the fucking fox News guy goes "dunno guys maybe that's a bit sleazy" it should give you pause. Its also not the first time the shack has run with some subpar material and thankfully people here have always called it out in the same way they have encouraged quality articles. Owning a site doesn't give you some magical shield against criticism, only a complete and utterly delusional moron would think that it does. So how about you take a good look at the comments and try to figure our why people tend to frown upon this instead?

        How much ownership do you actually think you have over this small slice of a small Website? This community, this conversation board. It's tiny, it's not a factor in ANY business decisions.

        You think you're the audience and sole arbiter of what is acceptable on the greater Website, but you're not. We're not. This is an anomaly, a holdover. A vestigial limb that has no modern function.

        Chatty is great and there are a lot of great people in there but don't mistake your persistence in posting for free with some sort of stake in the Shacknews.com company. It isn't there and it won't be there.

          Is anyone seriously doing other than just giving their opinion, I mean is anyone demanding anything or acting like they're entitled to control the content, not just comment on it?

          Why are you trying to discourage readers of the website (who, sure, are also shitposters on this supposedly worthless vestigial limb of a forum) from commenting on what they they think about content? How little regard does the site really have for user feedback? Have the times requesting reader/user feedback just been for show?

          This is such a strange position to take. People discuss all sorts of things they agree with and don't agree with here, just because it's from the root site doesn't mean it gets so some of free pass from criticism.

          Everyone here a right to their opinion and it to voice it. For the amount of times folks complain about clickbait type articles from other places, it's just as relevant here. With that said, they can just shrug and ignore it completely as it is there site, but the user base definitely should call out things like this if they find it distasteful. Hell, I think it's actually a good thing to see folks want to take a less trashy approach to things.

              I have to disagree? Wasn't Mercury just expanded to include more content? There are tons of Mercury users posting in this thread. I do read front page mostly when it's linked here, but I watch the Twitch stream when I can and I used to love the Shack Snack videos that were done.

              If the plan is to cultivate a click bait audience, then it's probably a good idea to separate the chatty from the site, because it brings in a whole different type of user base. As far as making judgement calls, we are stating opinions, it's up to the site itself to make a judgement call on if those opinions hold any sway or not, but to say the people that have those opinions have no right to them is absurd to me.

              "Judgement call"? If commenting on an article's angle or content, on an article which has comments enabled, be it from useless shitposters or occasional/first-time readers, is problematic (omg non-target audience judging things), then maybe explicitly have some guidelines banning that, or just not enable comments on the articles on which (apparently) no comments are desired

              You're trying to make people who actually care enough to visist (even parts of) this site daily shut up about what they think about content the site posts. It's very, very strange. Have guidelines banning any perceived negative comments on editorial decisions/content, if it's such a problem

          December 15, 2017 10:23 PM

          So people should just shut up and not say anything about trash content because we "owe" the site for keeping chatty going? lol

          I'm complaining and have Mercury. If they want to drive traffic and revenue to the site for premium content with Mercury (like they've said they do) mixing in the premium content with clickhole trash isn't going to bring in anyone new.

          Clickbait trash articles get called out on tons of "serious" sites - Arstechnica is the one that stands out in my mind. They have great content and when a clickbait shitty article gets posted their community calls them out on it and keeps them in check.

        He’s a self-made dude with an amusing/endearing schtick that is meant to be wholesome and an all around good guy despite the machismo. I don’t watch him much but when I see things like this:

        https://www.reddit.com/r/videos/comments/7a6mdv/drdisrespect_kind_advice_to_suicidal_fan/

        It’s eye opening as to how much influence he has, especially over young white miles who are otherwise being radicalized on the Internet by trolls who run around screaming the n word and yelling about how women should get back in the kitchen. He might even be one of the first real gaming “celebrities” that actually had the potential to inspire his audience to be better people, and that’s something we really need right now because I hate to tell you this but young white men out there really suck right now; my friend has a brother in the military and the shit these kids think is horrifying (and now we give them guns and PTSD so yaaay).

        Anyway, you don’t have to like him, but he has a huge following and is important to a lot of angry white kids who need a role model like him, and the shack kicking him while he’s down and producing some bullshit clickbait is only going to make the site look trashy and bad. An article on it would be fine and relevant but this is just so lazy and cringe worthy. Even if it gets clicks are those people ever going to come back to the site or assume it is anything but an aggregator for garbage?
