A surgeon is going viral for posting video of himself in the middle of a procedure on Twitter during a heated console war debate, which caused his hospital to face review bombings.
Players go to great lengths to defend their honor, including digging into the history of their fellow debaters. It’s common for two Call of Duty or Fortnite players to jump in online and post each other’s stats in the replies.
However, it’s not every day that someone claims to be a doctor fiercely defending their console of choice. Such was the case with Twitter user “Shreeveera,” who until recently had “doctor by trade” in his bio.
While he squabbled with Xbox fans about which console was better, many of his online fighters questioned whether or not he was a real doctor. To prove his legitimacy, Shreeveera shared a video of himself in medical scrubs in an operating room.
Hospital Review bombed for video
The video showed Shreeveera, his patient unconscious, and a closer look at the patient’s medical information. His post was meant to prove he’s a doctor and owns the “Xbots” — but instead it sparked a slew of backlash. We will not share the video to protect the patient’s identity.
Despite claims the patient agreed to him sharing the video, Twitter users were furious. Many users called the video “unethical,” and others argued it was “ground for a lawsuit and termination.”
Shreeveera eventually took down the video and changed his Twitter bio. However, users had already found the hospital where Shreeveera practices, resulting in numerous users leaving 1-star reviews and denouncing the doctor’s actions.
Shreeveera posts apology video
After deleting the clip, Shreeveera uploaded an apology video to YouTube. He elaborated on his actions, stating that his main intentions were “childish and stupid,” and claims he’ll be a better man for it.
He also states that the video was inflated disproportionately, although he accepted his actions were a mistake. “We should never cross the line where someone’s hobby merges into someone’s personal life. Trying to dox people, trying to target people and making their lives miserable,” Shreeveera said.
Shreeveera claims taking part in console wars — or “console passion,” as he calls it — is his hobby, while saving lives is his profession. Despite his efforts to make amends, Twitter users still don’t let his actions slide.
My formal apologies
I pray that I never switch to my personal/work life while debating a hobby
