Dr. Disrespect returns to streaming on YouTube


Guy ‘Dr. Disrespect ‘Beahm is officially back as a streamer following a high-profile Twitch ban in June. Although Beahm made his return to live streaming on YouTube, IGN US has learned that Dr. Disrespect has not struck an exclusive deal with YouTube.

In June, Beahm was mysteriously banned from Twitch. Both Beahm and Twitch have not disclosed the reason for the ban, and Beahm claims he does not know why he was banned from the platform at all.

After months of silence, aside from a handful of interviews in which Beahm expressed interest in returning to streaming, some sort of teaser premiered on the Dr. Disrespect Instagram account. The teaser suggested Beahm could return to streaming all that day, but nothing else came out.

Instead, Beahm brought in his Dr. Disrespect persona premieres on YouTube a day later. IGN has learned that Beahm does not have an exclusive deal with YouTube and plans to “experiment” with other platforms, including Facebook Gaming and its own Champions Club website.

Beahm was banned from Twitch sometime in 2019 after streaming from an LA Convention Center bathroom during E3, but that ban was only temporary.

Meanwhile, streaming services such as Twitch, Facebook and YouTube Gaming have started to attract streamers with exclusive contracts. Something Mixer did when it signed Ninja to the platform before shutting down the service.
