UPDATE 1:45 PST August 6: Dr Disrespect begun livestreaming on YouTube, but has yet to make an appearance himself at the time of writing.

Rather, his voice could be heard multiple times via a radio broadcast where he roasted TimTheTatman, spoke about Halo Infinite, and more.

Dr Disrespect has announced his return to streaming with an impromptu livestream on Instagram. The former Twitch star has been almost silent since his shock ban, but is now making a return, just over a month later.

Guy 'Dr Disrespect' Beahm was banned from Twitch without warning in June, and claims that he was given no reason for the suspension from the Amazon-owned platform.

On August 6, users noticed that his YouTube channel now has a 'join' option, signaling a move to the YouTube Gaming platform.

Dr Disrespect went live on Instagram unexpectedly.

During the IG live, a mysterious voicemail played which said: "Dr Disrespect may return to streaming as soon as today."

The message was delivered by a deeper sounding voice, but still sounded distinctly like the Doc himself.

Fans noticed the custom emotes and a join channel option on YouTube. This could indicate that he has signed an exclusivity deal with YouTube and Google. Other top streamers, including CouRage, have already moved from Twitch to YouTube. No exclusive deal has been confirmed, however.

We will update with more information as it happens...
