Why was Dr Disrespect banned from Twitch?
The live streaming platform Twitch signed an exclusive streaming deal with Dr Disrespect in March 2020. Although the full details of the deal are not officially revealed, it is speculated to be for 2 years and millions of dollars.
Despite the deal, the live-streaming platform decided to ban the celebrity streamer from their platform on June 26. The platform also did not have any comments as to why they decided to suddenly ban him.
The Doc, in an interview with PC gamer, has already confirmed that he will not be coming back to the platform. He further added that he wasn’t interested in an exclusivity deal and would live-stream independently.
This is not the first time Dr Disrespect has been in trouble with Twitch. In 2019, he received a 2-week ban after he was discovered live-streaming from the men’s bathroom.
