Dr DisRespect banned from Twitch for reasons unknown
Twitch said on Friday that Drs. Twitch steamer Herschel “Guy” Behm IV, known as Dispute, has been banned from the game streaming platform. The ban is reportedly permanent, according to CNET sister site GamePot, but the reason for the suspension is not yet known.
“As is our procedure, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a dreamer has violated our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service,” Chicot’s official statement said. “These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community.”
A dreamer, Shannon Plante, said he knows what he is banned for, and “not just from Twitch,” claiming that “serious.” His tweet has since been deleted.
Twitch declined to comment on the length of the ban. Dr. Dispract could not be reached and Twitter shut down DM. When you search for her Twitch account nothing comes up.
Dr. Dispatch was earlier. Influencing thousands of spectators from the gaming convention, he entered several public bathrooms without the consent of those inside, including a minor. A breach of privacy forced him out of E3 and he was banned from twitching for two weeks.
Earlier this week, Twitch also said it would begin issuing permanent sanctions over the weekend following a wave of sexual abuse allegations against popular Twitch streamers. Twitch deleted the accounts of streamers including IAMSp00n, BlessRNG and DreadedCone.
