On June 21, former Twitch employee Cody Conners alleged that a streamer, who went unnamed, had received a ban on the platform after being caught inappropriately messaging an underage viewer. According to Conners, this interaction occurred on the Twitch whisper messaging platform.

The messages, Conners alleges, were sexual in nature, and plans were reportedly made for the streamer to meet up at a later TwitchCon event with the minor. These messages were apparently available “in plain text” for “the powers that be” to see.

As mentioned above no names were ever shared, but insiders with information immediately made the connection to Dr Disrespect and his original permanent ban way back in 2020. Continued discourse about Doc’s involvement prompted a response in Jake Lucky X/Twitter thread where the streamer responded for the first time, saying “I get it, it’s a hot topic, but this has been settled, no wrongdoing was acknowledged and they paid out the whole contract.”

No evidence has been publicly revealed so far apart from the limited info we know about the ban four years ago, but the discussion is rife among the streaming community with Dr Disrespect’s original ban reasoning right back in the spotlight.

When was Dr Disrespect banned from Twitch?

Dr Disrespect was permanently banned from Twitch in late June 2020. After a minor ban a year prior, the Doc was suddenly off the platform with very little reasoning shared.

“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,” a Twitch statement said. “These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community.” Otherwise, no one knew why the Doc was ousted from the platform.

The permanent ban came shortly after the Doc signed a new contract with the platform. A year on from the ban, the streamer mentioned he was taking legal action against the platform, and in 2022, Dr Disrespect announced the legal dispute was over. “I have resolved my legal dispute with Twitch. No party admits to any wrongdoing,” Doc said on March 11, 2022.

Regardless of the reasoning behind the ban and whether the June 2024 allegations are true, Dr Disrespect has continuously ruled out a return to Twitch and has remained a streamer on YouTube since a month or so after the Twich ban began.

As the new allegations unfold, we’ll keep this piece updated with all the latest in the Dr Disrespect streamer drama.
