Dr Disrespect Admits To Messaging Minor Before Twitch Ban

DrDisrespect has just posted a lengthy statement on social media admitting to messaging a minor in 2017, an event that ultimately led to him being permanently banned from the platform in 2020. He stressed that he did message said minor but there were no ‘real intentions behind these messages’ and that the conversations were ‘casual’ but ‘sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate’.

He broke down the situation and vehemently refuted the labels that have been cast upon him in the last few days, stating that being called a predator hurts him deeply because ‘anyone that truly knows me f***ing knows where I stand on those things with those types of people’.


Is This The End of Dr Disrespect?

The statement posted on Twitter was a beast, but it cleared up everything we’d want to know about Dr Disrespect’s ban from Twitch in 2020. He said:

‘Everyone has been wanting to know why I was banned from Twitch, but for reasons outside of my control, I was not allowed to say anything for the last several years. Now that two former Twitch employees have publicly disclosed the accusations, I can now tell you my side of the story regarding the ban.

Were there Twitch whisper messages with an individual minor back in 2017? The answer is yes. Were there real intentions behind these messages, the answer is absolutely not. These were casual, mutual conversations that sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate, but nothing more. Nothing illegal happened, no pictures were shared, no crimes were committed, and I never even met the individual.

I went through a lengthy arbitration regarding a civil dispute with Twitch and that case was resolved by a settlement. Let me be clear, it was not a criminal case against me and no criminal charges have ever been brought against me.’

Given that the incident occurred in 2017, it now seems that Dr Disrespect – whose real name is Guy Beahm – fully went off the rails around then. That was also when he appeared on stream having a breakdown while admitting to cheating on his wife. Could this have all been connected?

In the statement on Twitter, Doc said he takes full responsibility and appreciates how stupid he was, but he was insistent that he’s not done with content creation. He bid farewell to those who have cut ties with him – like Midnight Society – and stressed that anyone outside of his circle (and his haters) doesn’t matter to him now.

He then wrapped up by saying he’s taking an extended vacation with his family and will come back refreshed and raring to go.

Will the internet be ready to receive him, though?

  1. He can’t defend this why do that? He has to show the messages to really try to defend himself and maybe claim it wasn’t sexual it was maybe edgy humor but otherwise this looks bad. The other thing this makes Amazon and Twitch look bad because they covered up for it for this long they didn’t alert authorities they paid a predator off. The US government needs to launch an investigation into this because I can tell you Doc isn’t the only one doing this both people on YouTube and Twitch are doing this with minors and it’s not just a small group. Mr Beast’s friend also did this but it’s been swept under the rug that individual also secured minors and we know it was sexual but no one talks about it and that individual has a shield.

  2. “Ok yeah I was inappropriately texting minors but I, like, totally didn’t mean it guys!!! It was all a joke!!@

  3. Why did Twitch cover this up and why did they still pay him out? That’s the problem because they covered for a predator. Twitch needs to be investigated and with the leadership and content there it raises more questions.
