Taking to Twitter, Rod wrote: "For several hours now I have been told from credible sources the reason DrDisrespect has been banned. however due to the importance and sensitivity around the subject I have refrained from going on it. i don't feel comfortable with it currently".
As of now everything is speculative in terms of why he's been permanently banned from the platform with people throwing accusations of crimes as well as the whole thing being a publicity stunt.More news: Take a coronavirus break and check out tonight's supermoon
Twitch has imposed a permanent ban on the popular gaming streamer Guy Beahm, known online as Dr Disrespect.
Dr Disrespect was one of the most followed streamers on the platform, listed as the 8th most followed with the 21st highest average view count by SullyGnome, a Twitch stats site.
KitGuru Says: There has been a wave of allegations amongst streamers over the last couple of weeks, but so far, we don't know if Dr Disrespect's ban has anything to do with that. In the statement, she thanked fans for their "love, support, strength, and kindness". During that stream, Dr Disrespect walked into the men's bathroom while the stream was active.More news: Late Aspas free-kick deals Barcelona huge title blow
ESports reporter Slasher was among the first to cover the ban, noting that this had nothing to do with a copyright strike and that it was very serious. "These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community", the Twitch spokesperson said in a statement.
Either way, signs are that Dr Disrespect won't be back on Twitch any time soon. He then, after a pause, began an unhinged rant covering the wild theories of noted conspiracy theorist David Icke, before asserting "We'll... we'll get through this champions". At the time of writing, neither Twitch or Dr Disrespect himself have made a formal statement addressing the ban in detail.More news: Over $30 bn needed to develop Covid-19 tests, treatments, vaccines
