Three months after Dr Disrespect’s abrupt removal from his former home on the Twitch video site, the motives behind the decision remain a mystery.
A ton of speculation and crazy hypotheses emerged in the aftermath. Still, the man himself held tightly to the line that even he doesn’t realize why Twitch wanted to break their long-running relationship.
That is, before Dr Disrespect’s September 28 stream over his new YouTube house, where the streamer gave viewers the largest, vague, clue to date. The latest issue indicated why Twitch booted one of their most famous stars.
Is he even the Master Chief?
After a donation message that needs true bravery to say the facts, Dr. Disrespect spiritually noted his willingness to ‘express his mind after a long time.’ He noted the ‘legality’ that prohibits him from doing just that. The steamer added he’s ‘being hindered through a mechanism that we all go thru.’
Aware about not crossing lines, Dr Disrespect curtailed the clarification. Another ’25-year active duty master ‘navy’ gift sparked more elaboration.
This one leaves no space for just one view as metaphors go: Dr Disrespect sees himself as the ‘king officer’ and Twitch as the ‘navy.’
The three’ cadets,’ Tyler’s Ninja’ Blevins, and Michael’s shroud’s Grzesiek are top contenders. Both inked exclusive Twitch contracts after Mixer’s summer closure. The third is murkier, which could relate to the rapper-turned-full-time-streamer reasoning, which in July penned a lucrative contract with Twitch. The suggestion is that Twitch engineered Doc’s ban on raising cash and bankrolling these offers.
“Imagine the Navy going in there and getting rid of you, just out of nowhere. And then bringing in three new cadets. Because you know what, they say ‘man, even though he’s going to turn Master Chief, that’s a big, huge salary.”
Interestingly, on June 22, four days before Twitch brought down the hammer on Dr Disrespect’s channel, Microsoft declared Mixer’s end. If there is a connection here is uncertain and remains deeply embedded in the field of speculation.
Naturally, the case needs a degree of caution: Dr. Contempt did not acknowledge this as the prohibition’s justification. Nevertheless, for a tale characterized by confidentiality, it’s the least we’ve hit the bottom of the ban.
Dr Disrespect’s ‘legality’ and silencing ‘method’ means there’s still a long wait ahead until we get a clear image of just what went down between star streamer and twitch.
What’s the next move, doc?
Before the suspension, Dr Disrespect appeared on his path to being one of streaming’s biggest stars. A book deal is on the way, and a television series focused on the famous steamer’s character. The suggestion that Twitch broke links with him to bring in three up-and-comers seems rather unplausible, particularly given the scale of some of the company’s recent acquisitions.
For now, the ambiguity about what transpired between Dr Disrespect and Twitch will stay just that. It’s evident that for ethical purposes, both parties hold it private. However, people do not realize precisely what triggered the rift between the two. If the entire matter was just a wage fight remains to be seen.
