Dr. Disrespect has been permanently banned from Amazon’s streaming platform Twitch. Dr. Disrespect who made a name for himself for being one of the best gamers and trash talkers had previous soft bans with one being for filming in a toilet.
It seems that Dr. Disrespect failed to adhere to the code of conduct given out by Twitch and the streaming giants had no option but to permanently ban the streamer. Herschel “Guy” Beahm aka Dr. Disrespect has often been at the center of controversies.
With Twitch’s biggest competitor Mixer being shut down by Microsoft just a few days ago, there aren’t many options available for Dr. Disrespect and it looks like we might have just seen the end of this beloved streamer for good.
CNN reporter Shannon Liao reported about Twitch’s decision, on her Twitter profile.
Twitch's statement on @drdisrespect ban: "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.”
