Dr Disrespect Finally Speaks About Mysterious Twitch Ban

Despite being one of the biggest streamers on the platform, Herschel ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm was banned from Twitch back in June 2020. The reason for the ban was never publicly stated, leading fans to wildly speculate for over a year.


In that time, Beahm has gone on to build a successful following on YouTube, and has mostly moved on from Twitch. However, back in August this year, he confirmed that he knew why he had been banned - and that he intended to sue the Amazon-owned streaming service as a result. 


"I can't talk about it, but a lot of people ask me, 'do you know the reason?' Yeah, I do know the reason why now," the streamer said earlier this year. "I've known for months now the reason why and I'll just say this right now champs, 'there's a reason why we're suing the f**k out of them.' I don't know how else to put it. The amount of damages and you just don't - nah, no, no."


Presumably the streamer’s attempted legal action is one of the reasons he’s had to keep quiet on the whole ban situation. But now, for the first time since August, he’s shed a little more light on what happened immediately after the ban. It turns out, perhaps not surprisingly, that the Twitch ban had a swift impact on some of his previous partnerships - including EA

"Champs, I am on a shadowban list from EA. There, I'll say it, I've been shadowbanned from EA," Beahm explained. "I'm on a list. Since the purple snake scummy ban, we've taken a hit on so many things behind the scenes champs. We've taken a hit on so many things, and not just the original [Twitch] contract.

"So much defamation related to the ban that we've had to deal with. It's insane. To not be involved with the Battlefield 2042 launch... First off, it's been a year and a half. EA - don't be pathetic. You're talking about the two-time, the back to back. I'm looking at trophies right over my left shoulder. Don't be so pathetic and scared to death, holy s**t. It's embarrassing."


It’s unclear what the current status of Beahm’s ongoing Twitch lawsuit is, but if it does move ahead as planned, the real reasons behind his ban will undoubtedly come to light. Watch this space.
