Dr Disrespect breaks character to call YouTube Gaming “zero communication”
Guy Beahm – better known as Dr Disrespect on the internet – took to his personal Twitter to call out YouTube Gaming for maintaining “zero communication” for the past two years.
In June 2020, Dr Disrespect was permanently banned from Twitch for seemingly no reason. And two years later, fans still don’t have a concrete reason for the ban despite a lawsuit between the two entities being settled in March of this year.
While the doc took a brief hiatus from streaming after the ban, he returned immaculately to YouTube Gaming’s booming streaming platform. Amid launching his own game studio and partnering with Mtn Dew Game Fuel, Dr Disrespect has maintained a massive following.
That being said, the double continually calls out the YouTube Gaming team for their lack of career support on their platform. Usually it comes from the Doc’s dagger tongue, but this time he broke character showing his genuine disappointment with the YouTube crew.
Dr Disrespect feels ‘taken advantage of’ by YouTube Gaming
On August 13, Dr Disrespect dropped his Google Prototype Specs and dripping with black steel mullet to address his fans as Guy Beam. He wrote to his Twitter followers: “It’s amazing to think that the platform Doc is streaming on doesn’t support him at all. No follow up, zero communication, absolutely no love.
He continued, “The impact we’ve had on YouTube streaming growth is insane. We have been exploited…. Jesus YouTube, show some respect.
His followers quickly flooded with comments claiming The Doc had paved the way for streamers to move from other platforms to YouTube. “So many streamers wanted to leave Twitch long before Doc was banned. And you show them that success on YT is possible and you get nothing in return,” one user said.
Several users tagged YouTube Gaming and Team YouTube in replies in an attempt to draw attention to the issue. A fan suggested Doc try out for popular YouTube shows like Good Mythical Morning and Hot Ones.
While Dr Disrespect isn’t happy with how he’s been treated by YouTube, he doesn’t have many options. Twitch won’t allow it to return and Facebook Gaming doesn’t have the audience to compete with either platform.
Many of his fans have suggested creating his own streaming platform. But with 12h and Deaddrop, Dr Disrespect might have enough on his plate for now.
