Dr DisRespect explained why he is a fan of ICE_POSEIDON’s IRL streams, and the reasoning behind why he is able to ‘root’ for the personality while watching.

As one of the most recognized figures within the Twitch live streaming community, Dr DisRespect cemented himself as a ‘powerhouse’ personality on the platform following a massive amount of success across 2017.

He took home ‘Streamer of the Year’ honors at the 2017 Esports Industry Awards, which was an award that many throughout the gaming and esports community believed he was a ‘sure in’ for.

After taking a shot hiatus at the end of 2017, the self-proclaimed ‘most ruthless competitor in the online gaming community’ came back in a big way with an enormous ‘return stream’ in February of 2018 that broke various Twitch records at the time.

While the Doc specializes in gameplay content and commentary, the community has seen the ‘in real life’ (IRL) section of the platform take off in recent years, especially as the industry continues to grow.

When it comes to IRL content, controversial streamer ICE_POSEIDON is one of the most popular across YouTube, with his broadcasts bringing in thousands upon thousands of fans every time he goes live.

When discussing ICE_POSEIDON, Dr DisRespect mentions how he enjoys his content, due to the personality creating a ‘fun narrative’ that you viewers can ‘root for.’

“He does create a fun narrative to get behind and to watch, and to absorb, and sort-of, like, ‘root for.’ He creates those IRL experiences that you can root for.

I don’t know why. I don’t know what that means – I do know what that means – just think about it!”

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

Twitch: AverageHarry
AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
