Popular streamer Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm released a statement today about his recent two-week ban from Twitch.
On June 11, Dr Disrespect went live with his first IRL stream at E3. But his cameraman followed him into a bathroom, filming the streamer and multiple other people, resulting in the ban and his removal from E3.
For several weeks, the Doc didn’t say anything publicly about the situation. But today, DrDisrespect spoke about the issue and apologized for it through his personal Twitter account, which had been inactive for several years.
Dr Disrespect said nerves may have been the reason he wasn’t thinking about whether he should record in the bathroom. Regardless of the reason, though, he apologized and admitted this mistake will hurt him and his brand. He insisted it won’t be repeated and he intends to improve.
“This incident was a step back, but like anything, we learn, become stronger, and move forward,” Dr Disrespect said. “If you follow the brand or myself, I hope you continue to stay with me on this vision.”
While Doc’s ban was only 14 days, he intends to return on July 8 and has released a few videos to promote the stream on that date.
