Twitch bans popular streamer Dr Disrespect weeks after signing multi-year contract

The thing is, nobody can seem to figure out what he did wrong this time. He does not provide any context as to why Dr Disrespect has received the ban, only offering that it was not due to DMCA claims, which have been haunting many Twitch users in the last few weeks. He also renegotiated his contract earlier this year and was seemingly set to stay on as a partner for the foreseeable future.

Dr Disrespect's ban comes amid a large wave of bans on streamers who have been accused of sexual assault. Even stranger, there has been no word from the Doc just yet on why this has occurred. We are aware of no specific allegations against Dr Disrespect. His page still has his weekly schedule on it so this was very likely not planned. However, it appears that this never actually happened. Per Twitch's policy, it does not reveal the reason or length of ban to anyone except the streamer.

The full statement reads: 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. Dr. Disrespect has yet to say anything regarding the ban on his Twitter account, and Twitch has not made any statements either. All that's known at this time is that he did indeed violate Twitch's Community Guidelines in some way.

District Court in Washington, challenges the waivers that would affect land in California, Arizona, New Mexico and Texas. The suit was originally brought by a group of plaintiffs led by the environmental activist group The Sierra Club.

Currently, it is unknown why the streamer has been banned from the gaming platform. Many Twitch streamers and viewers were disappointed by the short length of the ban, and were vocal about it, though he was allowed to continue streaming. Another prominent Twitch streamer, Lirik, was briefly suspended earlier in June over a DMCA takedown. However, the latest news suggests that he could have been permanently banned from the platform.

Since he began streaming in 2015 Dr DisRespect has grown into one of Twitch's biggest personalities.
