During a recent livestream, YouTube Gaming star Herschel "Guy," aka "Dr DisRespect," revealed why he was suspended from Call of Duty: Warzone 2.
After successfully outplaying several opponents, the "Two Time Champion" decided to trash talk through proximity chat. However, he changed his mind and remembered that his Call of Duty account was banned for seven days.
After viewers speculated on the cause, Dr DisRespect revealed:
"It wasn't the p**sy one, was it? Yes, it was, actually. Underneath High Rise, that whole scene. That was the one."
"Yeah we got him, let's make an example!" - Dr DisRespect shares his thoughts on getting banned for seven days from Warzone 2
Herschel engaged in intense gunplay on top of the Zaya Observatory during a recent Call of Duty: Warzone 2 broadcast. After getting a five-kill streak, he joyfully exclaimed:
"Oh, these dudes ain't even f***ing close to me! I'm telling you that right now. Ain't nobody close! Nobody!"
Dr DisRespect decided to cut down on the trash talk after killing another player in-game. He recalled that he had recently been banned from his other Call of Duty account due to a proximity chat mishap and stated:
"I should probably chill on this. You know, I mean, with the proximity chat. It's not even my account. They banned my other one for seven days for proximity chat use. Believe it or not. We're playing on alternate, but we only have a couple of days. You know what I mean? And then boom! It's unbanned."
The 40-year-old went on to say that he wasn't going to comment on the matter:
"I wasn't going to say anything, really. Because I mean, I don't really care. You know what I mean, champs? I really don't."
Viewers began to speculate on why Dr DisRespect was suspended from the game. While some claimed it was due to spam, others cited a time when the former Twitch streamer used a profane word.
Herschel confirmed that he had been banned following the High Rise incident. He then expressed his thoughts on the action and added:
"Like, these people are just... so... I wonder who like... 'Yeah, we got him. Let's make an example!' You know? When I see way f***ing worse! Holy s**t!"
