Dr. Disrespect issues apology ahead of return to Twitch streaming

Twitch personality Guy “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm revived his personal Twitter account to deliver a formal apology regarding the questionable conduct that got him booted from E3 and banned by Twitch

He began a brief Twitlonger message by reminding everyone that it was the first IRL — or “in real life” — stream he’s ever done. He went on to explain that the bullish nature of his character caused him to overlook both the importance of respecting the privacy of those around him and his legal obligation to do so.

Dr. Disrespect was streaming for his audience during the international gaming expo, but things got weird when he decided to mosey into public restrooms with the film still rolling. The breach of patron privacy drew a glut of backlash, and children making brief cameos in the recorded bathroom footage didn’t help matters.

“When we were walking around filming at E3, we clearly weren't thinking about the laws/repercussions of filming in the bathroom because honestly, it wasn't in our mind frame at the time,” Dr. Disrespect said. “We were sort of 'all in' with the Doc livestream experience and capturing the E3 event through the character. We were so into the E3 IRL journey that we became a little blind in what's ok and what's not ok.”

For his part, Dr. Disrespect maintains that the mistake was a simple case of legal ignorance, not a veiled attempt to push the trademark edginess of his character to new heights, or perhaps new lows.

This isn’t the first time Dr. Disrespect has found himself at the center of negative publicity. The popular battle royale streamer suffered a blow in 2018 when he publicly admitted to cheating on his wife.

The Doc seemingly spent his downtime producing a number of teasers for his eventual return to Twitch. He’ll go live for what should be a massive audience on July 8, 2019.
