Herschel Guy Beahm IV, known globally by his internet persona- Dr DisRespect, is officially returning to streaming but this time on YouTube. The streamer was last seen posting cryptic tweets in the aftermath of his Twitch ban, leaving fans speculating as to where his next destination could be.
After weeks of speculation, the Doc has finally broken his silence and took to YouTube to live-stream and also release a music video titled 'Red Skies'.
In the music video, which has already garnered 519K views so far (and counting), one can spot his familiar silhouette against a city nightscape, delivering lyrics such as "You can't replace me':
Soon after, he announced his return to YouTube on Twitter:
During the course of Dr DisRespect's stream, his viewership count peaked at the 335K mark, without him even showing his face! These figures are huge in comparison to Ninja, who previously debuted on YouTube with less than half the viewers during peak viewership- a mere 165K views.
Dr DisRespect returns to live streaming
Dr DisRespect made a glorious return to streaming on YouTube with a live stream titled 'Dr DisRespect-The 2x Champion'. Featuring a gas station replete with red overtones, very little happens over the course of the live stream as Dr. DisRespect managed to rock the entire online community without even making an appearance.
Over the course of the record-breaking stream, through pre-recordings and in the guise of a 'Joe Bandini', the Doc throws shade at the Esports awards and also highlights how everyone, from Tfue to Cloakzy, is leaving Fortnite currently:
Rumours suggest people are simply getting tired of watching full grown-up adults do Fortnite dances
He goes on to address Joe Rogan's video games comment and says that he agrees with him. Highlighting how only a small percentage of gamers actually make it big and earn millions, he states:
..when the reality is only point zero zero zero one percent are in the money..that's like telling a five-foot basketball player in high-school he has a chance to go pro!
Through his pre-recordings, he goes on to address a range of topics, all without even showing his face on screen.
