Dr DisRespect is a former Twitch streamer and an American celebrity. He is not a professional gamer, however, and is regarded as one of the entertainers of the gaming industry.

He commented on the same to ESPN, saying:

 "I created a character who plays multiplayer video games, and he's considered the most dominating gaming specimen."

He posted his first video on January 11, 2010, playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, and was featured prominently at Machinima, showcasing his gameplay. He then left YouTube and went inactive on the platform in 2011.

Dr DisRespect has since gained massive popularity by playing popular battle royale games such as H1Z1, PUBG and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Later, he joined Twitch and quit Sledgehammer to pursue full-time streaming on Twitch.tv.
