The iconic Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm is rumored to be moving to Kick after a curious teaser video had fans whispering.

Kick has basically become Twitch’s evil twin, promising looser guidelines for those who keep getting blindsided by Twitch’s strict guidelines and inconsistent punishments. But the site has become quite controversial thanks to its biggest names watching porn, gambling, and getting into trouble.

Dr Disrespect was permanently banned from Twitch years back, forcing him to move to YouTube after a troubling lawsuit. The Two-Time has been hinting at a possible change, however, and fans believe Kick is possible.

Is Dr Disrespect going to Kick?

After being banned from Twitch in 2020, Dr Disrespect has been streaming and posting videos on YouTube ever since.

When Kick started picking up momentum, Dr Disrespect saw big names like Felix “xQc” Lengyel getting record-breaking deals and asked for $50 million. Kick responded and seemed to be protective of that $50 million.

Did they work out a deal?

On Twitter, Dr Disrespect posted a short teaser video that showed October 27, 2023 in bold letters at the end after a dramatic eagle screech. A lot of people wondered if it meant he was moving platforms, either streaming on Kick or even Twitter.

But now the teaser has been revealed in full. Apparently, Dr Disrespect was using his new Turtle Beach headphones to block out the loud screech of the eagle. Yep, it was a sponsorship.

The limited edition headset is designed by the Two-Time himself.

While it’s still a mystery if Dr Disrespect will ever move to Kick, fans were definitely excited by the announcement. A lot of his viewers commended him for the video production, saying that Dr Disrespect was “heading to Hollywood” after the performance.
