A Call of Duty voice actor suggested that Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch after backstabbing the company in contract negotiations.
Obligations Voice actor Jeff Leach has offered a new perspective on the curious case of Dr. disrespect Twitch prohibition. The popular live streamer was banned last summer in a sudden and jarring move, though Dr. Disrespect has maintained that the reasons were never explained to him.
Dr. Disrespect, also known as Guy Beahm, is a former Obligations the developer himself and designed some of the maps in Advanced warfare. The developer eventually made the move to become an artist, but he has not been a stranger to controversy. The influencer had what is arguably his biggest moment of controversy when he went live inside a bathroom at E3, prompting a temporary ban. None of this was enough to prevent Twitch from truly disassociating itself from Dr. Disrespect, as they would generally continue to promote him after a time out. That changed last year, for some mysterious reason.
Jeff Leach, who played Ghost in Call of Duty: Modern Warfare, he pointed out in an interview with DanAllenGaming He had heard rumors of what had happened to Dr Disrespect from people he knew who had worked at Twitch, most notably suggesting that it came as a result of the Mixer shutdown. “What I’ve heard from various people who work at Twitch is that when it came to the time to renegotiate his contract, he was using Mixer offers as a lever to get a little more money out of Twitch,” Leach said before double that number. It’s all alleged and you can’t be 100% sure, but you think it’s credible.
These conversations were happening just before Mixer announced it was closing, which Leach believes led Twitch to think that Dr. Disrespect was lying about an offer. After all, why would a company that is closing offer someone millions of dollars to come broadcast for a couple of days or weeks? Twitch reportedly took offense at this after staying with the controversial streamer for years and helping him build his career, even using it as one of their key streamers after Ninja left Mixer. The timeline seems to add up as Mixer announced its closure about a week before the ban. Some speculated that there were legal implications surrounding his disappearance, but since he moved to another platform and continues to broadcast, he is probably fine.
The only people who probably definitely know what happened are Dr. Disrespect himself and Twitch. Whether or not something officially comes to light is unknown, but for now, this is one of the most feasible and relatively concrete explanations for the strange situation. For now, Dr. disrespect it’s on YouTube where it doesn’t seem to have skipped the beat.
