Dr Disrespect was back on Twitch, but not really (pic: YouTube)
Despite being banned from Twitch Dr Disrespect has found himself back on the streaming service, although not on purpose.
Dr Disrespect has made an unintended guest appearance on Twitch, as part of the Code Red Warzone tournament, although it wasn’t intentional.
During the tournament, an ad featuring MTN DEW Game Fuel appeared as part of the official Twitch stream, which just so happened to feature Dr Disrespect, real name Herschel ‘Guy’ Beahm IV.
That mean seem like a minor coincidence, but viewers went wild and organiser BoomTV had to contact Twitch and apologise, to avoid any fallout.
Dr Disrespect was banned in June 2020 for reasons that neither he nor Twitch has ever explained, and given the amount of time that’s passed probably never will.
As a result, strict restrictions were placed on his not playing with any other Twitch streamers, to the point where they’re discouraged from even socialising with him offline.
For a time, he was also banned from Call Of Duty: Warzone tournaments, despite Activision also not explaining why.
Twitch, and owners Amazon, seem adamant that Dr Disrespect should not appear on the service in any way and so from that perspective the ad was a bigger deal than it first seemed.
Before it started, Dr Disrespect was confident of winning the tournament but in the end he didn’t come close, with Jukeyz & fifakillvizualz taking the $10,000 main prize and Beahm not even placing in the top eight.
