If you’re a gamer and enjoy watching the pros do it on Twitch, you’re familiar with an “Internet Celebrity” named Dr. Disrespect. Apparently, he got a taste of his own medicine because he got dissed by Twitch and was permanently banned by the platform.
The interesting thing is as of this post: No one knows why — not even the bad doctor himself.
Even though Herschel “Guy” Beahm (Dr. Disrespect) came out and declares there was “no reason” for the inexplicable excommunication, there is something peculiar about the boot to his behind. One day prior to the startling announcement, Twitch announced it would ban all streamers permanently for sexual harassment and assault.
Then, Beahm gets bounced.
According to Digital Trends, here’s what Twitch had to say:
“As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community.”Twitch spokesperson
Thanks for nothing, Twitch talking head.
Fanbyte had some interesting tidbits that may lead to why the man with 4.5 million subscribers on Twitch may have been shown the door.
- His incessant screaming
- Making fun of disabled people
- A live stream from a public bathroom at E3 that got him suspended in 2019
- Dude can be a bigot as well
- And, of course, sexual harassment allegations
This is far from over as there could be a possible breach of contract involved. Three months ago, Dr. Disrespect signed an exclusive two-year contract for what he called “a life-changing amount of money.” Hopefully, for him, he deposited some of that bitcoin because Beahm is going to be coughing up some legal fees.
This is far from over and we’ll be on the case. Stay tuned.
