Twitch streamer and gaming personality Dr Disrespect has finally spoken regarding his mysterious ban from the streaming platform last month. The pro gamer was booted from Twitch for reasons which are still not clear, but he’s now speaking out about what happened, and what’s coming next.
In an interview with PC Gamer, Dr Dis alleges that he “honestly doesn’t know” what prompted the Twitch ban, but went on to add that he’s “considering” legal action.
Dr Dis is known for his controversial content, which recently saw him discussing conspiracy theories and the global pandemic, though it’s not clear if a particular video or stream led to him being banned. The ban also comes at a time during which the gaming industry is addressing sexual harassment allegations, leading to some speculation that this could be the root cause of Dr Dis’ ban.
Chatting to PC Gamer, Dr Disrespect dismissed the theories about the ban, saying: “I’ve seen all the theories, I’ve seen all the possible conspiracies, and it’s just like, I’m just not interested in engaging that type of stuff.”
Dr Dis went on to tell PC Gamer he won’t be coming back to Twitch while also dropping a couple of hints which suggest he’s seeking legal advice on the matter.
He said to the publication: “Obviously, for legal counsel, I have to be careful here. But I can say however, that I will not be returning to Twitch, so, I mean, that’s it.”
When asked if he’s taking legal action against Twitch, he stated that he is “considering” it.
It’s looking less and less likely that we’ll find out what the Twitch ban was actually issued for, but it’s sounding like Dr Disrespect is going to be looking for a new home to stream from!
