Noobs, the streaming world is always changing. And the streamers you already know and love are no exception to these changes.
On June 26th DrDisrespect got banned for seemingly unknown reasons. So far we’ve received nothing but a vague response from Twitch, and a short message from the Doc about his own confusion.
So far the only response we’ve gotten from Twitch is.
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.
And then from the Doc himself.
But this whole thing is seeming awfully weird. Not only have they banned DrDisrespect. They’ve also started refunding subs for his community. Something we really haven’t seen before due to a ban.
Even Slasher seems confused about the situation.
And lastly, here are the last 8 minutes of his stream. You can see how he goes from his normal persona to a shaken person afraid of his future.
So what does it mean?
I’m only speculating, and really that is all anyone can do right now. So far we have a lot of rumors in the wild about the cause.
- Its DMCA
- Sexual Harassment / Disrespect
- Tax Evasion
- Deep State Conspiracies
- He’s building a new Streaming Platform
Now personally, I feel like the new streaming platform feels the most realistic. He did have a multiyear deal with Twitch, which could cause him to be taken to court if he was working on this during his contract. (likely)
But, today I found the following page on Trovo. https://trovo.live/DrDisrespectLIVE
Could this mean DrDisrespect is moving to Trovo? Or is this simply a troll who made this profile? Regardless of what it is, I’m excited to see how this DrDisrespect drama plays out. I hope he and his family are getting the best situation for their lives.
Ps. I’m aware of Brime. And even if Brime is the more likely scenario for doc, it’s cool to see Trovo build up and grow
Let me know what you think might be happening!
