Why was Dr Disresepct banned from Twitch?

  • He broke Twitch’s Community Guidelines.

When Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch on June 26th, Twitch released a statement giving fans some insight as to why he was banned.

“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,” they said.

Dr Disrespect obviously broke one of Twitch’s rules, but unfortunately, they didn’t give any more information about the exact reason for his ban.

Under Twitch’s Community Guidelines, streamers can be banned for a whole host of different reasons including sexual content, nudity, violence, threats, harassment, hateful content, scams and more.

Dr Disrespect knows the reason

We might not know the exact reason why Dr Disrespect was banned, but he does.

On June 28th 2020, two days after his ban, he tweeted: “Twitch has not notified me on the specific reason behind their decision… Firm handshakes to all for the support during this difficult time.”

However, he has obviously been in contact with Twitch over the past year and has been given more specific information about the ban.

In his livestream on August 23rd 2021, he said: “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. I’ve known for months now.”

“I’ll just say this right now, champs. There’s a reason why we’re suing the f*** out of them. I don’t know how else to put it. The amount of damages and… you just don’t… nah, nah.”

For now, the exact reason why Dr Disrespect was banned remains a mystery, but it’s obvious that the streamer thinks the reason is unfair.
