Why was Dr Disrespect banned?

Last week, Twitch announced that it will start issuing permanent suspensions to streamers after there was an allegation of sexual abuse and harassment involving certain users on the online service.  The same week on Friday, Dr Disrespect got suspended from the platform after his stream came to an abrupt end. And while there haven’t been any allegations against the streamer, an exact reason behind the suspension is not known yet. At this point, it actually seems like a coincidence, however, there is an official statement from Twitch.

Twitch is yet to issue a proper statement detailing the exact reason behind the action taken and specify the length of the suspension. Nonetheless, there have been multiple reports claiming that the ban is, in fact, a permanent one.

Over the past few days, several Twitch streamers have also received a number of DMCA (Digital Millennium Copyright Act) takedown requests of videos that contained copyrighted music and other content. However, several sources confirm that this is not the case with Dr Disrespect.

Dr Disrespect breaks his silence on Twitch ban

Dr Disrespect had remained silent on the subject when it first happened last week, however, he later released a statement through his Twitter handle.

Dr Disrespect also spoke with his fellow Twitch streamer and friend TimTheTatman after the incident, although their conversation was not on a live stream. TimTheTatman relayed the same message that Dr Disrespect does not have any idea behind the reasons for his suspension.

Dr Disrespect’s wife, who is popularly known within the online community as Mrs. Assassin, also released a statement following the suspension. She wrote a message to all the fans in the gaming community thanking them for their outpouring of love, all the support, strength, and kindness.
