The Doc posted a sombre music video called “Red Skies” moments before announcing his return on YouTube. The stream is live with 14,000 people waiting.
It’s been one heck of an emotional roller-coaster for the Champions Club since Dr. DisRespect’s ban. Fortunately, the wait is over. The Doc has officially moved to YouTube, and 14,000 fans are eagerly waiting.
Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV was suddenly, and permanently, banned from Twitch on June 26, 2020. Five weeks later, he’s finally making a come back.
Dr DisRespect is one of the biggest names in gaming and, up until his ban, he was the most popular livestreamer. That’s why his fans — known as the Champions Club — were surprised to see Twitch Interactive, Inc. ban him.
Just months before his mysterious ban, Twitch secured an exclusive partnership deal with The Doc rumoured to upwards of USD$20 million. Then, when Twitch was under a microscope by the MeToo community, The Doc’s channel was wiped off the platform along with many many others who had allegations against them.

Guy Beahm, or his wife, tweeted out to community days after the ban to let people know that Twitch had not yet given him a reason for his ban, and then several weeks later reaffirmed that in an interview with PC gamer.
Speculations ran wild as Dr DisRespect’s deafening silence left many feeling uneasy about the whole situation. One of the rumours suggested that Dr DisRespect was considering a move to Spotify in September.
Spotify are launching their own videos streaming service with a tier based subscription system called Spotify Gold that is similar to YouTube members, and Twitch subscribers in September. Joe Rogan is set to kick off this new service with his popular podcast on September 1st.
Slasher thinks The Docs career is over
Esports reporter Rod “Slasher” Breslau insists that he knows the reason why Guy Beahm was banned from Twitch, claiming it was serious. He added that “The Doc is done, and not just Twitch.”
He refused to comment on the situation because he felt “uncomfortable” with the “sensitive nature of the topic.”
Rod Breslau later said that he regretted tweeting about it because it put pressure on him to reveal the reason and that he feared that Guy Beahm would hit him with a libel lawsuit if he did.
Last week Brelsau actually confirmed that the the ban was due to serious allegations levied against him during a livestream where he addressed his own allegations on harassing controversial and conservative streamer Brittany Venti.
“What The Doc was banned for is much worse than anything Keemstar is tweeting about me,” Rod said in the stream.
Despite Breslau stating that he “is done, and not just on Twitch,” The Doc has officially made his return.
Dr DisRespect moves to YouTube
Early this morning Dr DisRespect shared a sombre music video on Twitter. It is the second of music video that he’s released since his ban, both indicating at his inevitable return.
The music video entitled “Red Skies” shows The Doc gazing out at a city skyline through an apartment window of skyscraper.
“I don’t even know why I try anymore,” the lyrics seem to be quite dark for something that’s supposed to be promising and uplifting; Dr DisRespect’s return.
The song does seem to end on a positive note with The Doc singing: “You can’t replace me. I’m awake, now it’s time to break free. I’m levitating.”
Dr DisRespect ha a real Lamborghini Aventador and he drives it to events.
A few hours after Dr DisRespect shared his new music video for “Red Skies” on Twitter, he announced his long awaited return to streaming; he’s now live on live.
The Dr DisRespect YouTube channel is now live. It’s showing his Lamborghini Aventador at a gas station fuelling up, symbolising the launch — or rather re-launch — the next step of his streaming career.
