It's been almost 4 months since Herschel Guy Beahm IV, aka Dr Disrespect, received a permanent ban on Twitch.
With Twitch refusing to provide a concrete reason as to why The Doc was banned, the online community has been demanding answers for a long time now. Dr Disrespect himself has admitted that his Twitch ban has been causing him anxiety, as he believes that he didn't do anything that warranted a ban.
However, in a recent stream, popular Fortnite streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins implied that the Doc seems to be hiding something and that he 'did something ban worthy of the platform'.
Ninja's comments coincidentally come in the aftermath of Dr Disrespect's recent attack on Twitch, where he hinted that they could not afford him, and as a stopgap measure, decided to sign 'three cadets in his place'- Ninja, Shroud, and a mysterious third.
'Usually people know what they did to get banned': Ninja shares his opinions on the Dr Disrespect Twitch ban
In a recent YouTube video by Daily Clips Central, a clip from one of Ninja's recent Fortnite streams is attached, where the 29-year-old can be heard sharing his thoughts on the Dr Disrespect ban.
According to him, Twitch would not 'randomly pull the plug' unless a streamer had done something specifically, especially something which warrants a permanent ban:
"I don't what happened, I don't know what he did...I don't think they can like just pull the plug. Usually people know what they did to get banned. A full ban? I feel like you have to know what you did. "
"This isn't some political bullshit I can tell you that, something happened, okay?. I don't know what it was but something happened. "
"He did something ban worthy on the platform. I do believe that he might have not been told about it , I don't think that he doesn't know what it is. Like I would have a pretty good f*****g idea , like a pretty good idea of what I did to get banned. "
He then goes on to sum up his thoughts by hinting at the fact that Dr Disrespect could be hiding the real reason why he got banned:
"It begs the question how do you not know what you did? How much did you have to do that you couldn't even pinpoint? That's the only question I have. "
Ninja's recent comments will undoubtedly open up a Pandora's box, and trigger a whole new debate online, as the community attempts to decipher the underlying meaning of his statements.
Two sides to every story? With regards to the Dr Disrespect Twitch ban, Ninja certainly seems to think so.
