There's odd doings a-transpirin' in the gaming world, with streaming megalith Twitch abruptly booting one of its most popular personalities off the platform, with no apparent reason being made public. However, the rumors are unconfirmed, and Dr Disrespect was not the subject of any public sexual misconduct claims this past week, according to Forbes.

Why was Dr DisRespect banned from Twitch?

Twitch have reportedly released a statement, saying: "We take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service".

A report Friday from independent esports journalist Rod Breslau on Twitter said that Dr Disrespect's ban was permanent and not related to recent Digital Millennium Copyright Act takedowns for use of copyrighted music on Twitch. These utilize to all streamers no matter of status or prominence in the community.

As reports began to come out that alleged that the streamer's ban from Twitch was permanent, Beahm's close friend and collaborator Timothy "TimTheTatman" Betar reacted to the news during a live broadcast.

Rod Breslau, a notable esports journalist, reported that the ban was meant to be permanent and has also been in touch with sources claiming to know why the ban was passed down. Twitch did not offer any information on the reason for the ban, or the duration.

Herschel "Guy" Beahm, who goes by the streamer name Dr. Disrespect, is no longer on Twitch. People think this happened after he reads something, possibly on his phone. I know it's a tough... life's weird right now.

She later deleted the tweet, though didn't retract the statement: "Hey, I totally get that it turns out ppl didn't want more confirmation that it is a permanent ban without the reason and felt the tweet was clout chasing, so I will respect those perspectives and delete the tweet". Though, some are defending Alinity this time around as Dr Disrespect's ban seems to be the result of something extremely serious, possibly criminal.
