Dr Disrespect's Inappropriate Conduct: An Open Secret in the Industry

On June 21, serious allegations against popular livestreamer Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm shook the gaming world. He was accused of sexting an underage user through Twitch’s messaging system. This came after years of speculation about why Beahm was banned from Twitch in 2020. Former Twitch account director Cody Conners hinted at these reasons in a recent tweet.

Beahm confessed to inappropriate contact with a minor in a Twitter statement on June 25, describing the interactions as “casual, mutual conversations” that sometimes became inappropriate.

This confession came after days of intense discussion and speculation within the online gaming community, with some of Beahm’s fans accusing Conners of ulterior motives. Twitch has not responded to these allegations, and Conners has also remained silent on the issue despite multiple requests for comment.

Reports from The Verge and Bloomberg have corroborated Conners’ claims, suggesting that Beahm’s misconduct was known but overlooked within the industry.

Former Twitch colleagues have spoken out in support of Conners’ character, describing him as a moral and justice-oriented individual. A widely circulated but unverified screenshot of Twitch’s internal reporting system highlighted Beahm’s inappropriate conduct, further fueling the controversy.

The fallout from these revelations has been significant, with many of Beahm’s sponsors and business partners distancing themselves from him. In his statement, Beahm mentioned taking a break with his family and hinted at a return to YouTube, where he maintains a presence.

The accusations and Beahm’s admission mark a severe blow to his career, which has been marred by previous controversies, including livestreaming from a restroom at E3, accusations of racism, and publicized infidelity.

The severity of Beahm’s actions, coupled with Twitch’s decision to ban him in 2020, underscores a pattern of problematic behavior.

Former Twitch employees have noted that the platform had previously tolerated Beahm’s actions, including threats of violence, racism, and Covid conspiracies, under the guise of his “character.” The nature of his 2020 ban, described by insiders as likely related to sexual misconduct, was a tipping point in his controversial career.
