The streamer ends legal proceedings with Twitch, but the streamer’s final decision is not what was expected.
For a couple of years now, Dr Disrespect has been banned from Twitch for not complying with the site’s regulations. Yesterday, the popular streamer confirmed his future with the platform.
The popular streamer, at the time of being banned and noting that despite appeals, he could not recover his signal, was welcomed by Youtube. After months of streaming on his new platform, Dr Disrespect announced in a stream that he already knew the reasons why he was banned from Amazon’s streaming platform and that he would take legal action.
Although there was a small glimmer of hope for Doc and his fans of his return to Twitch, yesterday Dr Disrespect himself announced his intentions on Twitter. In two tweets, he confirms that he will never return to Twitch.
The intrigue behind the reason for the ban will continue to grow for a long time to come.
He does not reveal if both parties have reached a financial agreement. Nor, above all, clarifies what were the reasons why Twitch expelled him from the platform. He was one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, but we will have to consult the mystery ships to try to guess what happened. Shortly before his ban and only halfway through an exclusive contract with Twitch, Dr Disrespect (who is not a medical doctor) shared debunked claims about COVID-19. This is not the confirmed reason, but it fits with the timeline of events.
Clearly, Doc will not say anything regarding the case or why he was banned in the near future. Meanwhile, Dr Disrespect is enjoying one of the best periods of his career on YouTube, where he has tens of thousands of users watching each of his streams. Likewise, YouTube trusts him to the point that they are working together to improve YouTube’s streaming section, hoping to surpass Twitch’s success together.
