Popular Twitch streamer Dr Disrespect‘s channel has finally been unbanned by the platform, and his fans were already going nuts in anticipation of his first stream back.

The online content creation community was sent into a whirlwind several weeks ago when Dr Disrespect was banned by Twitch for having included a trip to the restroom in his live-stream from the E3 gaming convention.

As is usually the case, no official word was given on the length of the suspension, as both Twitch and the Two-Time kept mum on the subject. 

However, on June 25, fans noticed that his channel had become accessible on Twitch once again, meaning that he had been unbanned, since suspended channels cannot be visited online.

All in all, his suspension ended up lasting 14 days, starting on June 11, much less than the 30 day ban that many speculated had been leveled against him. 

Dr Disrespect - TwitchDespite him not even being live, the Doc’s Twitch chat was already buzzing with fans.

The Two-Time getting unbanned on Twitch is definitely headline-grabbing news on its own, but what took it to the next level was the fact that his loyal followers instantaneously filled the chat, despite the fact that he hadn’t gone live.

In fact, the Doc didn’t even tweet about his suspension being rescinded, so the new must have spread via word of mouth like wildfire on social media.

Soon after the ban was lifted, the chat became so full of excited followers, that it had to be put in subsciber-only mode, so to limit the amount of messages that were being sent.

“Dr Disrespect’s Twitch channel has reappeared,” tweeted out one fan. “He’s not even live and his chat was popping off! Subs, gifted subs, holy fawk man! Firm handshakes Champions Club!”

Why was Dr Disrespect banned on Twitch?

The superstar streamer saw his streaming privileges revoked on Twitch on June 11, moments after visiting a public restroom at E3 while his IRL stream was still live.

Streaming while in a public restroom is in strict violation of Twitch rules, not to mention an invasion of other people’s privacy, so his channel was almost immediately shut down and made inaccessible.

While never revealing how long his ban was for or when he would be returning, the Doc did tweet out a teaser image for his “new arena” on June 24, which even included a jab at himself for why he got banned in the first place.

All things considered, the Two-Time will consider himself fortunate to be back so soon, and his 3.3+ million followers will now be able to enjoy their favorite streamer in action once again.

Charli D’Amelio defends Addison Rae, tells TikTok haters to “shut up”

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has had enough of internet critics, telling trolls to buzz off in a pointed Instagram Live broadcast where she defended names like Addison Rae against body-shaming users.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a brutal place. The advent of social media has allowed people from all over the world to connect with one another, for better or for worse — and not everyone has a positive outlook on life.

From the average Instagram user to social media stars like Addison Rae, it seems that no one is above criticism from internet trolls, causing some users to completely lock down their accounts while others have learned to handle the negativity with a swift block.

Not everyone can drown out the negativity, though, especially if there’s a lot of it, and it seems that Charli D’Amelio has taken notice of quite a few negative comments about her fellow TikTokers.

“Quite honestly, I know I look good,” Charli said while doing her makeup in an October Instagram Live. “Addison should know she looks good. Maddie should know she looks good. Cynthia should know she looks good. Like, shut up!”

“Keep it to yourself!” she continued.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. People say like, such rude things to like, Sissy Sheridan. Sissy is so beautiful. Literally one of the most beautiful girls I know. You’re mad that she doesn’t cuss? How is that affecting you?”

“Even like, Bella Poarch,” the TikTok star added. “She uses the face zoom filter, and she looks good doing it. You guys gave her the likes. Don’t go back on what you said, because she has a lot of followers.”

It’s no secret that the celebs she mentioned have been getting quite a lot of backlash lately; from Bella Poarch being accused of acting childlike on purpose to trolls body-shaming Addison Rae’s curves, it looks like Charli has simply had enough of the negativity.

She’s not wrong for pointing it out, either. Reports state that the current global health crisis has seen a dramatic rise in cyberbullying, and a quick look at comments on TikTok show that this isn’t a mistruth.

In these times, it’s always good to remember Bill and Ted’s classic saying: “Be excellent to each other.”
