Dr. Disrespect Won’t Return to Twitch After ‘Resolving’ Lawsuit

Streaming star Guy Beahm, better known as Dr. Disrespect, has ‘resolved’ his lawsuit with Twitch – but will not be returning to the platform.

In a tweet (below), Dr. Disrespect said he was “moving on” after resolving the legal dispute and that neither he nor Twitch admit any wrongdoing. It’s not clear if this is a formal settlement, or if this is simply a parting of ways.

Responding to several fans asking if he’d be returning to Twitch now that the issue is resolved, the streamer said “the Doc will not return”.

Dr. Disrespect announced he was suing Twitch last year over the platform’s decision to ban him in June 2020. The streamer, who was a Twitch partner with more than four million followers before his ban, has never revealed why action was taken against his account.

The closest thing to an explanation was a statement released on his YouTube channel: “I can not talk about it, but a lot of people ask me, ‘do you know the reason?’ Yeah, I do know the reason why now.

“I’ve known for months now the reason why and I’ll just say this right now champs, ‘there’s a reason why we’re suing the f ** k out of them.’ I do not know how else to put it. “

Dr. Disrespect now streams on YouTube and unexpectedly formed a new AAA studio called Midnight Society in December with former Call of Duty and Halo developers. The streamer has also signed a TV development deal to work on a series based on his internet persona, and now streams exclusively on YouTube.
