Despite having already been unbanned on Twitch, Dr Disrespect‘s highly anticipated return to streaming will happen a lot later than what most expected.

The online gaming community was in store for a surprise when Dr Disrespect was finally unbanned on Twitch following his suspension for livestreaming in a public bathroom.

However, despite his channel being made accessible once again, the Doc revealed on June 27 that he will not be returning to streaming immediately after all.

He tweeted out a video that featured his “bodyguard” Dan lifting weights outdoors and receiving a sudden call from the Two-Time, after which he walks off-screen.

The video screen then turns to black, with the date July 8, 2019 popping up, which is likely to be the date that he fires up his stream for the first time since being unbanned. 

While the news of the superstar streamer’s return to Twitch has excited the thousands who dutifully watch him on a daily basis, it has also raised some curious questions.

For one, many are confused as to why he’s going to be waiting nearly two weeks after his suspension was rescinded to stream once again.

This becomes even more foggy when taking into account that his chat was bursting with many of his followers the day he got unbanned, even without him going live or putting out word that his ban had been lifted.

Once he is back, however, viewers may expect to have a totally revamped viewing experience. On June 24, just a day before he was unbanned, the Two-Time put out a tweet that his stream was “under construction,” teasing major improvements.

That could very well be the reason why he’s going to be offline much longer than his suspension had required, probably deciding it was a good opportunity to have some work done on his content.

Why was Dr Disrespect banned on Twitch?

The Doc’s ban on Twitch came on June 11, in the middle of his first ever IRL stream that he was doing from the E3 gaming convention in Los Angeles.

Moments after his cameraman had followed him into a public restroom with the stream still going, the channel was shut down for having violated Twitch’s rules, not to mention the invasion of privacy.

His suspension ended up lasting 14 days, less than the 30 many thought he had received, but his absence from the platform will ultimately reach that amount of days anyway, now that he’s announced his return date.

Bryce Hall slams “fake influencers” for partying despite restrictions

TikTok star Bryce Hall is calling out “fake influencers” for partying in spite of social distancing restrictions, just a month after claiming he’s quitting his own partying ways until LA city ordinances are lifted.

Bryce Hall is the self-described “party animal” of the TikTok world, notoriously being charged by the City of Los Angeles for throwing two house parties despite the area’s social distancing ordinances.

Faced with a $2,000 fine and potential jail time, Hall later took to his YouTube channel to state that he his no longer throwing huge parties until it’s safe — but it doesn’t look like his fellow influencers are taking the hint.

Since Hall’s video was released, a number of social media stars have faced criticism for partying, including the likes of Nikita Dragun, Charli D’Amelio and rapper/Instagram star Zach Clayton, who Hall called out for his partying habits in a pointed Tweet.

“I have a theory that the influencers who continue going to parties every night don’t own a brain,” Clayton said of the influencer-partying phenomenon. “Correct me if I’m wrong, though.”

It seems that Hall felt Clayton was being a bit of a hypocrite, as he shot back by calling him a “fake influencer,” claiming that Clayton publicly decries large gatherings but attends them himself in spite of his words of warning.

“Practice what you preach and try not to be fake,” Hall shot back. “Let’s remember you attended my birthday party.”

“See, the difference here is I can get called out for attending a party, learn form my mistakes, then actually follow through when I say I won’t go out anymore,” Clayton replied. “I haven’t been to a party since then.”

Bryce wasn’t convinced by Clayton’s response, though, and accused him of attending “large gatherings every day not following [redacted] guidelines” — a statement that Clayton seemed to brush off.

This is far from the first time Hall has taken shots at other influencers for partying, by far; he made similar claims in an interview with Entertainment Tonight two weeks ago, calling other influencers “liars” for going to parties but promoting social distancing on social media.

No matter how you spin it, it looks like Hall has learned his lesson and is attempting to curb the current health crisis by calling out other stars — but it doesn’t look like it’s working all too well.
