A famous Twitch icon has received a channel ban from Twitch.
Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm IV has been banned on Twitch today for an unknown reason. The news first broke via esports insider Rod “Slasher” Breslau on Twitter. Details are sparse at this point, but Slasher states that this was not due to a DMCA violation.

A former SledgeHammer Games community manager, DrDisrespect embarked on a journey to become a popular streamer and entertainer. He joined Twitch in 2013 and quickly rose through the ranks on the Internet’s most popular streaming platform. Dubbed the two-time, DrDisrespect made a career for himself, mainly streaming Battle Royale games like Fortnite, H1Z1, PlayerUnknown’s BattleGround, and most recently, Call of Duty: Warzone.
The Doc has had run-ins with controversy before. He was banned from E3 2019 for streaming IRL in a public bathroom with his cameraman. This incident led Twitch to ban him temporarily from their platform. However, this situation seems much more serious and it could very well mean the end of DrDisrespect on Twitch.
Dr Disrespect last streamed on June 25, where he continued his expedition to become a top controller player in Warzone. Navigating to Doc’s Twitch channel returns a message stating, “Sorry. Unless you’ve got a time machine, that content is unavailable.”
Twitch released a statement in regards to the ban to select media members. One of which, Zach Bussey, shared the statement in a tweet earlier today.
Official Twitch Statement:
"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."
