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.

Many members of the Champions Club waited eagerly for his YouTube broadcast to start.

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.

Korean streamer HAchubby was shocked after she got a huge surprise on her birthday from her dedicated fans.

HAchubby shares her content to a multinational fanbase of over 200,000 on Twitch. She is most often found streaming IRL, collaborating with other streamers, as well as sometimes showcasing her piano skills.

She has several super loyal fans who make frequent appearances online whenever she streams. Just last month she met a Twitch fan in one of her IRL streams, only for him to reveal himself as her “number one VIP” and a known member of her community.

In another stream, a fan ‘stream sniped’ her. He approached her to give her a pizza box as a gift, and to HAchubby’s surprise the box contained a printed out image of the iconic Twitch “Jebaited” emote.

While she is used to interactions from her dedicated fans IRL, the last thing the streamer expected was for them all to come together to thank her for her content on her birthday.

On Sunday, November 29 HAchubby’s stream was hijacked by her viewers who sent her a video, with a pink background perfectly matching her hair color, wishing her a “Happy Birthday from all of chat.” The voiceover in the video said, “on this momentous occasion we bring you the event of a lifetime for the worldwide Twitch sensation HAchubby. Get your PepeDs ready!”

The rest of the video featured an emotional montage of some of HAchubby’s best moments and featured a clip of her introducing herself. The video also showed an adorable animation showcasing the impact that the streamer has had on a global scale.

HAchubby was confused at first, only managing to say an emotional “what?” in response, but as the video continued she looked tearful while viewers spammed the chat with birthday wishes.

As the streamer continues to make her multinational fanbase smile on a daily basis, it’s heartwarming to know that they can make her smile too.
