A brief primer on Dr Disrespect and the mystery of his Twitch ban


With nearly 4.5 million followers, Dr Disrespect is—or was—one of the biggest streamers on Twitch. Even if you didn’t follow him, you’ve probably heard about the speculation around his mysterious Twitch ban, the reason for which we still don’t know. If you’re wondering how we got here, here’s the short version.

The Dr Disrespect character emerged almost fully-formed on YouTube in 2010, with his trademark shades, ‘stache, and contemptuous attitude. But back then—before the man became the mustache—he was better known as Guy Beahm, soon to be a community manager at Call of Duty studio Sledgehammer Games.
