Former Twitch star, Dr Disrespect, has hinted towards the reason for why he was axed from the Amazon-owned platform back in June of 2020.

There’s no denying that Dr Disrespect is a titan of the streaming realm. Once the self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch,’  he brings an entertainment and production value most streamers can only aspire to.

But when the Doc was spontaneously banned from Twitch on June 26, this sent shockwaves which rippled through the livestreaming world. Since, everyone has speculated about the now-infamous ban, including 100 Thieves’ CEO, Matthew ‘Nadeshot’ Haag.

Fast-forward more than three months since Twitch swung the banhammer, and the world is none-the-wiser as to why Dr Disrespect was cut from the platform. But, during his September 28 broadcast, he hinted towards the reason.

Twitch banned Dr Disrespect to save money?

After running riot with Odell Beckham in Verdansk, the Doc took some time to interact with his viewers’ donations. During this, the Two-Time was prompted to “say the truth,” to which he explained that “he’s been wanting to speak his mind for a long time.”

The Doc also added that he’s “being silenced by a process that we have to go through” while he continues to stream on YouTube. But after receiving another donation from a fan who claimed to be a “25-year active duty Master Chief”, the Doc provided a cryptic response which seemingly delved into the reason behind his ban.

“Imagine the Navy going in there and getting rid of you, just out of nowhere. And then bringing in three new cadets. Because you know what, they say ‘man, even though he’s going to turn Master Chief, that’s a big, huge salary.”

Segment starts at 2:58:55 for mobile users.

This comes as Twitch welcomed both Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins back to their streaming platform, after Mixer was acquired by Facebook Gaming. The pair will no doubt have settled on a hefty sum before penning an exclusive contract with Twitch.

As for the third cadet, it’s possible Dr Disrespect was referring to Logic, the ‘retired’ rapper who signed with Twitch in July in a seven-figure deal. Or, it could be a streamer who is yet to be announced.

This speculation was fueled by Esports Talk, who questioned if shroud and Ninja could be the ‘cadets’ referred to.

Of course, this still isn’t an explicit response. And based on his previous response regarding “being silenced by a process,” it seems that those looking to gain the exact reason behind Doc’s ban will have to wait a little while longer.

TikToker Tony Lopez has lashed out at claims he cheated on girlfriend Sarah-Jade Bleau after a smaller creator revealed screenshots of their private conversations.

Over the last few months, Tony Lopez has been accused multiple times of grooming underage fans on Snapchat, and the incidents were even referenced in Larray’s diss track, ‘Canceled.’

Despite these brewing accusations, on Sunday, November 30, Tony and Sarah-Jade Bleau revealed they were dating in both a flirtatious TikTok and a series of pictures on Instagram.

The pair took part in the trend where creators attempt to jump backward and get caught in another person’s arms, but instead, Sarah-Jade surprised Tony with a kiss in time to the song. Sarah-Jade also posted a picture of her and Tony cuddling up together with the caption “couple of besties” – the new term for dating, but not quite official.

But shortly after the announcement, TikToker Ava Louise posted a video showing a number of messages from Tony to her at the beginning of November. She captioned the video, “Wait, you have a whole GF and you were in my DMs on November 5 at 2:45am?”

The video was promptly posted to the TikTokroom Instagram account after receiving thousands of views on its original platform, where it was brought to Tony’s attention.

The TikTok dancer was quick to deny the implications of the video and commented on the Instagram account, firing insults at Ava Louise herself.

He wrote, “All I asked was how were you? Lol Nah enough of this clout chasing bullsh**. You hit me up first, thanking me for dancing to your song, plus we never flirted lol. Get a life.”

While in a separate comment he added, “Dragging s**t for attention because you know using my name will get you like,” and, “Didn’t you lick an airplane toilet seat? Lol next.”

So far, some fans appear to be rallying around his comments, which have racked up thousands of likes, although failing to drown out many more negative reactions on both Instagram and TikTok.
