Dr Disrespect opened up his first YouTube stream on August 7 by addressing the burning question on everyone’s minds for the last few weeks: why was he banned on Twitch?

Dr Disrespect sent shockwaves throughout the internet when his Twitch account was suddenly and unexpectedly banned from the platform on June 26 without reason. He went six weeks without saying much, before finally announcing his return to streaming on August 6 in an Instagram Live, YouTube broadcast, and finally, a Twitter post.

The next day on August 7, the 38-year-old finally appeared on camera for the first time since his suspension, and started off his stream by addressing the elephant in the room to over 400,000 fans – and it appears as though he’s just as much in the dark as everybody else.

Dr Disrespect addresses Twitch ban

Doc opened up his return to streaming by addressing the ban. The popular streamer explained that not only does his team not know anything, but that Twitch had not reached out before or after removing him from the platform.

“A lot of people want to know what happened. Guess what? I want you to look into my f**king eyes when I say this. We still have no idea,” he said, before mocking those who claimed that he knows, before reiterating “We have no idea!”

The star then said that he had done nothing to deserve the ban, and called out Twitch for their lack of communication and handling of the matter. “As far as I’m concerned, we didn’t do anything to warrant a ban. Let alone how the way they went about banning us. No communication before, no reaching out, nothing. Boom. Done.”

The Two-Time Champion followed up his rant by hitting out at those in the industry who have been quick to get an answer about the situation. “The problem is there are those anxious for an answer so what that does, it creates a level of urgency and speculation. And I think it’s a f**king cockroach approach – period.”

He wrapped up the discussion by explaining that people should leave it up to legal experts to sort it out due to the amount of money involved. “The last thing I’m gonna say about it, and I have to be intelligent about all this because you are talking about a heavy contract… Lots of money. There’s big money involved, so let the legal professionals do what they need to do. That’s it.”

While fans are no closer to figuring out the reason why Twitch abruptly banned one of their biggest stars from the platform, Dr Disrespect looks to be focused on the future by streaming on YouTube.

Despite his extended hiatus since June, the popular streamer pulled in over 500k viewers live during his return broadcast, proof that the Two-Time is in just as high of demand regardless of the platform he’s on.

YouTuber Trisha Paytas urges Shane Dawson to “take accountability” for treating her poorly

Content creator and influencer Trisha Paytas has called out YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiance Ryland Adams for not “taking accountability” for their actions following her revelations about Jeffree Star and HairbyJay last week. 

In a series of TikToks, Paytas insists that it is unfair that the two are able to just go about their lives without taking accountability for their actions.

She said: “They never  have to take accountability for anything. They don’t learn, they don’t get it. They’ll have an apology, throw therapy in there, but they don’t change. And it’s not okay.”

“The amount of trauma and trust issues I have from this are far greater than anything any ex-boyfriend or daddy issues could give me,” she continued. “This is someone I’ve never lied to and never said one bad word about for twelve years.”

Paytas added: “I find out every day, more and more nasty s**t he said about me.”

“It just goes to show what horrible human beings they are. They think that if they don’t address stuff, it just goes away,” she said.  “And that is the truth, because a lot of people won’t have to take accountability for their actions and for being a s**tty person because the internet forgets stuff and the drama moves on.”

Paytas also dubbed Dawson’s fiance Adams a “weasel,” saying that he “couldn’t wait to talk about it” because “he was so happy to have a little bit of spotlight on him.”

She also called out Shane in a TikTok pointedly titled: “Signs you’re in a toxic friendship (but don’t wait twelve years to end it).”

Some of the “signs” she mentioned include: “says they won’t support you publicly because it gives them anxiety (but does it for other people),” “stops showing up in-person for any important events,” “they only call you when their other friendships aren’t working out,” “they trigger you on purpose to go off on people on their behalf,” “tries to convince you to ‘move on’ from trauma that makes them look bad” and “tells you they ‘don’t want to believe what you’re saying’ when you’re opening up to them.”

Shane and Ryland are yet to comment publicly on the situation.
