Dr Disrespect addresses accusations of new Twitch ban from former employee

Dr Disrespect has given a response following claims made by a former Twitch employee that the streamer was banned in 2020 for sending inappropriate messages to a minor.

Guy ‘Dr Disrespect’ Beahm, once celebrated as the “Face of Twitch” , was unexpectedly removed from the platform in 2020, leaving his fans in the dark about the reason behind his departure.

A legal dispute arose between the Doc and Twitch after his permanent ban, but it was eventually resolved two years later. However, the reason for his removal still remained a mystery.

Four years have passed since the ban was implemented, and former Twitch employee Cody Conners has now taken to X (previously Twitter) to publicly disclose the accusations.

According to Conners, Twitch’s whispers feature caught an unidentified male streamer engaging in inappropriate behavior with a minor and had intended to meet up with them at TwitchCon.

Despite not mentioning Dr Disrespect by name, Conners’ tweet was immediately linked to the popular streamer by users on social media.

Following statements made by influencer Jake Lucky on Twitter, where he identified Dr Disrespect as the alleged streamer involved in a controversy, Dr Disrespect responded and denied any wrongdoing. He stated, “I understand that this is a hot topic, but the matter has already been resolved. No wrongdoing was admitted and the entire contract was paid out.”

Despite Conner’s insistence on his innocence, several individuals in the industry have come forward to address his claims. Among them is Rod Breslau, who was one of the first journalists to report on Doc’s ban. In a post on X, Breslau stated, “I did not fabricate information,”while also acknowledging that Conners was not a direct source.

Nathan Grayson, a journalist, stated that he had heard a similar explanation multiple times, while also protecting his sources. He clarified that his sources were secondhand and were not present during the event, nor could they provide any documentation.

It has been suggested that the reason for Conners speaking out at this time, four years after the ban and two years after the lawsuit was resolved, may be due to a non-disclosure agreement (NDA). Game artist Del Walker brought attention to this by noting that many NDAs have a duration of four years, which coincides with the timeframe of Conners’ ban in June 2020.
