YouTuber Herschel “Dr Disrespect” Beahm was apparently offered a massive Kick deal after all — but he turned it down.

Dr Disrespect previously announced that he would join Kick if they offered a $50 million deal with the controversial streaming platform. He said this in response to Felix “xQc” Lengyel signing a $100 million deal, so fans were not sure if Dr Disrespect was trolling or if he truly had an offer in the works after being permabanned from Twitch.

The rumors continued to swirl that Dr Disrespect was moving to Kick but is it true? In the most recent discussion from the Two-Time himself, we learned why he was not going to join Kick after all.

No, he doesn’t stream on Kick. The Doc revealed that Kick actually made him a “gracious” offer after all. According to Dr Disrespect, Kick offered him $10 million per year — and he wouldn’t need to do any gambling, either. But, it wasn’t enough money.

He said: “It’s just not enough.”

Dr. Disrespect added that he appreciated the offer but is waiting for the $50 million deal he initially demanded. He said he’s not “budging” and isn’t interested in moving until the deal is exactly what he wants. This is due to his booming viewership on YouTube, which he believes is unmatched.

“The community is too strong here,” Dr Disrespect said about YouTube. “The community is too strong here. We’re established. The numbers are just outrageous. We’re looking good, we’re feeling good. I’m in cruise control, driving multiple Lamborghini. I’m in no rush.”

On top of streaming, Dr Disrespect has been focused on his gaming studio and personal brands, like Black Steel Bourbon. He isn’t tempted to make a chance until he’s given the $50 million deal he wants.
