Many fans responded with support for the streamer, showing various screenshots of him showing up in the front row. Throughout the game, Dr Disrespect could be seen getting up and cheering. Some fans even spotted Dr Disrespect while in the crowd themselves. He was easy to spot due to his bright red outfit and incredible height.
