Dr Disrespect calls The New York Times “a scam”

Reacting to his book’s exclusion from the Top 15 Bestseller list, Dr Disrespect expressed anger at the publishing house. He also questioned the criteria for making to the list, as one of the books on the list had sold only 5K copies. On the other hand, the Call of Duty veteran’s memoir had sold more than that on the first day of its release.

Naturally, with such a discrepancy, Doc ended up calling The New York Timesa f***ing scam.” The YouTube streamer has put in a lot of effort in getting the book to great heights. Therefore, seeing its success being ignored is definitely going to hurt his feelings.

Regardless, Doc doesn’t need the validation of the NY Times to realize his book is a great success. He knows that his numbers are much better than most on the list, and so is his story. The Two Time feels that his book could easily be in the top 3 of the Bestseller list, and his fans agree.
