A Few Days, We reported that Guy Beahm aka DrDisrespect has been banned from Twitch. The Twitch Streamer with massive following was banned over unknown reasons. Doc has now given the first statement from his side, saying that he has no idea.
In a tweet, DrDisrespect said that “Twitch has not notified me on the specific reason behind their decision”.
Many reports claimed that Twitch’s recent strictness regarding Music Copyright cannot affect Doc. That is to say because Doc has his own music, which he has rights over.
Moreover, it was also said that DrDisrespect’s deal will be negotiated or he might return because of it. The deal is rumored to be a whopping $10m a year. Not only that, but DrDisrespect also signed a deal with Skybound for an upcoming TV show based on his persona
Twitch has not said much about the ban. In a statement to pcgamer, Twitch said “we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service.”
Kotaku’s Senior Game Journalist wrote that his insiders have told him that DrDisrespect ban is permanent. Last time, Beahm was spared, when he decided to stream in a public bathroom during E3. This year, it’ll be different.
“I have been told from credible sources the reason DrDisrespect has been banned. however due to the importance and sensitivity around the subject I have refrained from going on it. I don’t feel comfortable with it currently.”
Lastly, there is more credibility to him getting permanently banned than a temporary ban. That is to say because Beahm’s subscribers have seen their subscription amount being refunded. Hence, indicating there is no more DrDisrespect.
