Dr Disrespect found himself perma-banned from Twitch back in June.
The good doctor had around four million Twitch followers at the time. As you can imagine, the media fallout was massive.
But that was June. It’s now August.
Dr Disrespect, real name Guy Beahm, recently spoke to The Washington Post about his ban. And, according to the good doctor himself, he still doesn’t actually know why he was banned.
“Honestly, we just don’t know. It was a total shock. Imagine showing up to work and the doors closed and you can’t get inside. You’re going, ‘What’s going on?’ And you’ve been told you’ve been fired. But you haven’t been told the reason why. We just weren’t given an answer. It was the worst feeling”.
During a separate interview with PC Gamer, Beahm did (try and) say that he doesn’t believe it was because of controversial comments he may have made during his infamous last Twitch stream. That was until his publicist cut him off mid-sentence. Draw your own conclusions there.
The Question on Everybody’s Lips; Why?
Since then, Dr Disrespect made his premiere YouTube stream. He also made sure that everyone watching knew the score on the whole Twitch situation;
“A lot of people wanna know…they wanna know what happened. ‘Why did you get banned?’
Guess what? I want you to look me in the fu*king eyes when I say this, okay? We still have no idea. We have no idea. And I’m gonna tell you this right now – as far as I’m concerned; we didn’t do anything to warrant a ban, let alone how they went about banning us. No communication before. No reaching out. Nothing. Boom. Done”.
It is of note that Dr Disrespect does not have an official/exclusive streaming contract with YouTube. Instead, it’s believed he’ll be taking to YouTube, Facebook Gaming, and his own website.
We’ll see what the future holds for Dr Disrespect, but it’s safe to say, he’s back.
