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In fact, the Doc didn’t even tweet about his suspension being rescinded, so the new must have spread via word of mouth like wildfire on social media.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

Asmongold defends Forsen after learning the real reason for Twitch ban

Popular Twitch star ‘Asmongold’ went to bat for fellow streamer Sebastian ‘Forsen’ Fors after the Swede was banned from the platform on November 26.

At first, no one knew the real reason for Forsen’s ban, with some thinking it may have been DMCA-related. However, viewers soon discovered that for a brief moment in a recent broadcast he showed a gif of a horse in a very inappropriate scene.

Despite this, Asmongold decided to stick up for Forsen during his own broadcast and call out Twitch for banning him due to an honest mistake.

“How the f**k is that going to be TOS? If…I don’t understand. You’ve got other people and they’re going around showing Animal Planet,” he explained. “Like you see literal animals killing each other, but you see a horse’s d**k?”

To this, Asmongold makes an interesting point. There are streams on Twitch that document animals in the wild and they can get into some rather freaky situations that, while natural, aren’t exactly the kind of thing you’d show your boss.

“Listen, horses don’t wear clothes, you know that?” the streamer sarcastically stated. “So, if you look at a horse, you’re going to see their d**k. Like, that’s all there is to it. It’s weird, man.”

However, right after making this argument, the streamer learned that it wasn’t just the horse that got Forsen banned, but the girl who was in the gif with the animal that changed the whole conversation. Briefly, anyway.

“Okay, that’s a little bit different,” he confessed. “It’s a little bit more than what I thought it was.”

Despite this, Asmongold still defended Forsen for the mistake of showing the gif. “I don’t think it’s really that big of a deal. You show that for like a second, right? Cause it’s an accident.”

According to the popular World of Warcraft player, one second of footage shouldn’t determine a whole Twitch career. “That seems stupid to me,” he added. “But you know, here we are.”

Unfortunately for Forsen, the streamer says this time, his ban is indefinite and it’s unclear when, if ever, he will be unbanned.

Hopefully, with Asmongold speaking out, Twitch can agree to let this incident slide and let Fors back on the platform so he can stream again.
