Twitch has permanently barred Dr Disrespect from all streaming activities and the reasons for the same still remain a mystery. On June 26, popular streamer Herschel "Guy" Beahm IV — better known as Dr Disrespect woke up to his account being removed from Twitch, initial speculations suggested that the ban may have been due to Digital Millennium Copyright Act issues, but that wasn’t the case. But, for the first time since his ban, Dr Disrespect is streaming again. And this time, he is using YouTube as his comeback vehicle.

The streamer went live on YouTube Thursday after teasing a Livestream on Instagram earlier in the day and posting cryptic music videos over the past several weeks. It is, however, currently not known if Dr Disrespect would use YouTube as his major streaming platform from this point forward, but sources suggest that the gaming sensation has not yet entered a partnership with YouTube. Beahm will also experiment with other streaming platforms including Facebook Gaming and his own website, The Champions Club. And the collective response from all platform will help the streamer decide upon his Gaming direction. Dr Disrespect's YouTube channel now features a "Join" button that leads to a $4.99/month membership option that includes loyalty badges and custom emotes.

Twitch has remained tight-lipped as to why it banned Dr Disrespect. In an official statement, a Twitch spokesperson alluded, “As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community."

Twitch has apparently taken over the matter to Dr Disrespect and they have mutually parted ways in confidentiality.
