Twitch: Dr Disrespect – Criminal Law Proceedings?


from Sebastian Glanzer
For more than three weeks, nothing has been heard of the streamer Herschel "Guy" Beahm aka Dr Disrespect, who was suddenly permanently banned on Twitch. Since then, speculations about the reason for the ban and the radio silence of the "Docs" have been increasing. Scene insider Rod 'Slasher' Breslau wants to know the reason and points to a trial with criminal content.

The Dr Disrespect case remains a mystery to the streamer community. Just under four weeks ago, the extrovert streamer was suddenly banned by Twitch and partners like Discord immediately terminated all contracts. A final farewell to his stream and a tweet – Since then you have not heard from Herschel "Guy" Beahm aka Dr Disrespect.

According to his own statements, Twitch did not give him a precise reason for permanent exclusion from the streaming platform. Initially, it was assumed that he would negotiate a contract with competitor YouTube or that he would like to poach streamer for his own platform or for a completely different one. There was also a deal with Facebook Gaming after a contract was leaked. This but turned out to be a fake. What many thought was a streamer's PR stunt seems to have a more serious background.

Esports and streaming insider Rod 'Slasher' Breslau now knows more about the situation around Twitch's former top streamer. In Hasan Piker's stream (see video excerpt below), Wroclaw explained that the ban was not about switching to a new platform, even if Dr Disrespect switched his Twitter description from his Twitch channel to his YouTube channel Has.

According to Wroclaw, there is no communication between Dr Disrespect and YouTube. As the insider wants to know, the streamer is in the middle of a serious lawsuit involving serious criminal content. The theory of a lawsuit against Dr Disrespect or an arrest had been around a while ago, but there is no case under the name of Herschel Beahm in his state's public police databases.

Esports and streaming insider Rod 'Slasher' Wroclaw, to whom many esport teams and websites similar to Jason Schreier from Kotaku entrust your information anonymously, knows a lot more about the trial of the "Doc". However, he fears that the lawyers in this case would face a hefty fine if he discloses information about the case. According to his own statement, he would only sell the story of a website or magazine if it also paid for the possible fines that could arise as a result.

Anything we know about Dr Disrespect's sudden disappearance from the online spotlight is the closest to a serious lawsuit that requires confidentiality. In addition to the permanent Twitch ban, it would also explain why partners like Discord have turned away from him after the ban. Until a tangible verdict has been given, fans of "Doc" and those interested in Twitch will have to speculate.
