Dr Disrespect May Take Legal Action Against Twitch for Ban
A month ago, the gaming streaming community was confused about why Dr Disrepesct was banned on Twitch. Twitch did not state out any particular reason why they were banning Guy Beahm (Dr Disrespect). And they didn’t confirm the news if it was permanent or not. Many were speculating on what happened. Some linked it to Dr Disrespect’s comments about the coronavirus pandemic that was fueling an incorrect conspiracy theory that was deemed as spreading misinformation. The banned streamer did break his silence then and he talked about the issue again in an interview.
Dr Disrepect still doesn’t know the reason for the Twitch Ban
In a new interview with PC Gamer, Dr Disrespect shares that he still doesn’t know why he was banned from Twitch. While discussing his experience, the interviewer asked how crazy it was to ban a popular streamer and not even disclose the reason why. To this, Dr Disrepect agreed and shared:
Yeah, that’s the kind of the mind blowing thing about all of this. Obviously, for legal counsel, I have to be careful here. But I can say however, that I will not be returning to Twitch, so, I mean, that’s it.
Then the interviewer tells Dr Disrespect that if he himself was an influencer, he would get attention to the issue online so that justice could be served. To this Dr Disrespect says that he is doing whatever he can to resolve the issue:
Yeah, I mean, obviously there’s a lot of that stuff that’s, in terms of the thinking like, yeah, that’s all going through your mind. For me, it was pretty tough to just… I had to get off social media. I mean, just to see all the speculations and theories, things that my name has been surrounded with. And it was just really heartbreaking to see to a certain extent because we’ve worked so hard to get to this point. But, you know, we’re ready to go.
He can’t share everything that’s happening behind the scenes but he confirmed that is considering taking legal action.
When the interviewer mentioned the fact that he talked about coronavirus 5g conspiracy theories, Dr Disrespect’s publicist stepped right in and stated:
We’re getting really close to dangerous territory here. So, you know, Doc, we don’t know why Twitch banned him, and there is no formal warnings or reprimand on record. That’s all legal is going to let him say.
Dr Disrespect shares there’s going to be a big comeback for his character
Even if Twitch happens to open up about why they banned him or if they remove the ban ultimately, one thing is clear. Dr Disrespect is not likely to be coming back to the streaming service. Instead, he is focusing on making a bigger comeback with his character:
We’re excited to take the next steps. And I’m really focused on the community for now. We’ve got lots of fun stuff planned, lots of projects that are in the works, and yeah, continue on, baby.
He’s currently working on a new TV series. Moreover, there is also going to be a memoir from Dr. Disrespect which is going to be a POV from the character he has created. The popular gaming streamer is looking for ways to expand his career by venturing out it seems. That is what his focus is at:
My focus now is just continuing the momentum and returning to my chair, hanging out with the Champions Club and launching a couple fun, creative experiences. Yeah, and that’s where we’re at.
Let’s see when Twitch tells the world the real reason they banned Dr Disrespect.
