Dr Disrespect final moments on Twitch are strange and disturbing
The final Twitch livestream by Dr Disrespect suggests he was extremely upset about something, as subscribers are offered refunds by Twitch.
There’s still no official word on why Dr Disrespect has been banned from Twitch, but his final broadcast shows him acting very out of character.
Just months after renewing an exclusive contract with Twitch, and despite his 4 million followers, Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch late on Friday, 26 June.
No explanation has been offered by Twitch and in his most recent tweet Dr Disrespect, real name Herschel Beahm, claims not to know the reason. But clearly something was disturbing him greatly during the final minutes of his most recent stream.
The biggest clue as to what is going on is Beahm’s final stream, which in its last 10 minutes shows him becoming increasingly erratic and disturbed, possibly because of information read from his smartphone.
Beahm appears to break character several times as he alternately rambles about David Icke conspiracy theories and sits in complete silence. He then switches to a video of children’s game Roblox, which is highly unusual for him.
None of it seems to be an act and instead his final words imply he is very upset about something unconnected with the stream:
‘I appreciate everyone watching today. We’ll… we’ll get through this, Champions Club. I know it’s a tough. Life’s weird right now. We’ll get through this okay and uh… f**k.’
Although Twitch has offered no official explanation that’s not unusual in these situations, although they did issue the following statement:
‘As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community.’
Beahm was banned for two weeks last year, for livestreaming from a lavatory at E3 – which is illegal under Los Angeles law, but that’s been his only major run-in with Twitch so far, which makes the current situation all the more peculiar.
Dr Disrespect Twitch subscriptions have already begun to be refunded, although that in itself does not necessarily confirm that the ban is permanent, given that none of Beahm’s content is currently available on Twitch.
