There’s been a bit of a purging happening on Twitch lately where any streamer, big or small, gets permanently removed from the streaming service for simply having unproven sexual misconduct allegations levelled against them.
Some are innocent, some are guilty but for Twitch, that doesn’t matter. As it is their platform, they reserve the rights to ban anyone for anything and you’re not ‘innocent until proven guilty’. That’s the case for Dr. Disrespect has also received a permanent ban from the platform, yet not allegations have yet been made public.
As the #MeToo movement now meets #GamerGate a plethora of new sexual misconduct allegations are coming out. That was the case for The Angry Joe Show host, Joe Vargas, but he was quick to respond and denied the allegations made against him with sufficient evidence to prove the 28-year-old Twitch partner Ashley “WookieMonster” Marku was lying.
From out of nowhere one of Twitch’s largest streamers, Dr. Disrespect, was permanently banned and people with knowledge of the reason, even Twitch themselves, refuse to comment on the reason. There have been no allegations levelled against Dr. Disrespect at this time.
Fellow streamer Rod “Slasher” Breslau claimed to know the reason for the ban and says it is very serious, and because of the serious nature of things, won’t comment.
“Look. For several hours now I’ve been told from credible sources the reason Dr. Disrespect has been banned. However, due to the importance and sensitivity around the subject I have refrained from making it public. I don’t feel comfortable yet,” Slasher tweeted.

Although Slasher expressed that speculation wasn’t healthy that hasn’t stopped the community from engaging, and many people now believe that Herschel “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm IV may involved in a child porn/grooming charges.
The leftist streamer later deleted his Tweet (but we captured it before he did) which might mean he fabricated the claims for Twitter clout.
An anonymous source wrote us: “I’ve heard two reasons, so I can’t confidently say that either of them are true. The first reason is that a huge partnered streamer who is close friends with Twitch staff has accused Dr. Disrespect of sexual assault and Twitch are not commenting because, at this time, the victim would like to remain anonymous.”
Herschel “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm IV permanently banned on Twitch as paedophile and abuse speculations heat up.
The email continues: “The other is paedophile allegations, but honestly, I don’t buy that for a second. Still, whatever the reason is, I’ve heard that Dr. Disrespect is suing.”
Someone claiming to work in the human resources department of Twitch also claimed that Dr. Disrespect had, yet again, cheated on his wife with a massive fellow Twitch partner, and now she’s charging him for rape.
Twitch HR staff says Dr. Disrespect is NOT a paedophile, although he has reportedly been arrested and raided, and reason for ban is because allegations from big partnered streamer for sexual assault and cheating on his wife.
It’s also interesting to note that Dr. Disrespect’s sponsor Game Fuel have not yet dropped him.
