Dr. Disrespect tweets about it.
Some of you may have already heard that Dr. Disrespect has been banned from twitch following his last live stream where he seemed concerned and kept saying that they’ll get through this. Naturally, a front page streamer on twitch who had a huge multi million dollar contract with twitch getting banned creates a lot of confusion and speculation. Twitch must have quite a big reason to remove one of the faces and biggest proponents of their platform.
The streamer himself finally released a tweet that confirmed nothing and seems to say that he is as confused as the rest of us are. Although I’m sure there are details twitch and the doctor are not disclosing.
With such little information being conveyed, there are a bunch of rumors just flying around. However, it has been stated that this ban should not have anything to do with any DMCA issues or the other twitch harassment allegations floating around.
Another rumor that surfaced briefly was that Ninja, Shroud, and Dr. Disrespect were in the talks of creating their own streaming platform. *These are just rumors and can definitely be 100% fabricated by the confused community*. Still, it is definitely an interesting spin on things, but the merit to that rumor is minimal at best until we get more solid information.
The fact that Mixer just shut down and left Shroud and Ninja in an uncertain situation as of now plays into that rumor as well.
What do you all think is happening?
