Popular YouTube streamer Dr Disrespect was trolled pretty hard this past week thanks to some help from a local news station. In a coordinated attempt that involved another streamer and legion of viewers, a cheeky dig was thrown at Dr Disrespect in a clip that proved to be quite funny.
The streamer at the center of this trolling maneuver is that of Sebastian "Forsen" Fors. The Twitch streamer is one that has been known for playing pranks on others in the past, and this time around, Dr Disrespect was in his sights. Along with the help from his viewers, Forsen was able to get an ABC news affiliate in Syracuse, New York to wish Dr Disrespect a happy birthday. Although the newscasters didn't refer to him as Dr Disrespect--his real name Guy Beahm was used along with an image of him not wearing his streaming attire--the message itself is where the real trolling came in.
Perhaps the silliest part of all of this is that this past week wasn't even Dr Disrespect's birthday. The YouTube streamer's actual birthday falls in March. This means that Forsen and his viewers went out of their way to pull this stunt for no other reason other than making the local news do their bidding. There's no real point to do this, but hey, it makes for good content and provides a nice chuckle. Sometimes, that all you really need.
As for Dr Disrespect himself, it's unknown if he happened to see the clip. Within the past few weeks, the Doc has been a bit busy with the idea of streaming other video games as he now thinks that Call of Duty: Warzone has gotten stale.
