Dr Disrespect appears on ZLaner’s Twitch stream

Call of Duty streamer Zack “ZLaner” Lane has apparently avoiding a Twitch ban after streaming with Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm.

Dr Disrespect was permanently banned from Twitch in 2020. It’s still unclear what exactly happened that led to the ban, but The Doc plans to sue the streaming platform for damages caused by the reason behind his being booted.

“I’ll say this right now…There’s a reason why we are suing the f— out of them. I don’t know how else to put it,” Dr Disrespect said.

Either way, Doc’s relationship with Twitch is clearly shaky at best. But that didn’t stop ZLaner from dropping into Warzone with Dr Disrespect on September 22.

ZLaner streams Call of Duty with Dr Disrespect on Twitch

A new Twitch Rivals Warzone tournament has $75,000 on the line. To prepare for the intense competition, ZLaner decided to run a few games with YouTube Gaming streamers Dr Disrespect and Timothy “TimTheTatman” John Betar. This was a bold move, causing many fans to say that ZLaner had “the biggest balls” for streaming with Doc in particular.

It seemed that ZLaners’ own teammates agreed.

“Z, homie, I don’t know how the f— you think playing with Doc on Twitch is going to work,” TimTheTatman said.

In response, ZLaner said he “didn’t think it through” before streaming.

“That’s good,” TimTheTatman joked back. “Ask for forgiveness, not approval.”

Can banned streamers be on Twitch?

According to Twitch’s community guidelines, banned streamers such as Dr Disrespect are prohibited from appearing during a live broadcast on the streaming platform.

Twitch states that any attempt to “circumvent an account suspension” by appearing on another user’s account will “result in an additional enforcement against your accounts, up to an indefinite suspension.”

Strangely enough, ZLaner is not yet suspended from Twitch despite his breaking these guidelines. It’s possible that Twitch hasn’t caught up with the situation just yet. Or Twitch may be turning a blind eye due to the ongoing tension and possible legal issues with Dr Disrespect.
