Twitch superstar Guy ‘Dr Disrespect‘ Beahm’s notorious “bathroom ban” from E3 was the subject of some trolling in a hilarious skit put together by fellow streamer ‘PaladinAmber’ at the recently concluded TwitchCon event in San Diego.

While Dr Disrespect may be known for a lot of things, one less-than-desirable event in his career that he’ll never be able to shed is the two-week ban he received from Twitch after livestreaming from a public bathroom at the E3 gaming convention in June.

The suspension sparked an onslaught of debate and memes about the controversial event, with even the Two-Time throwing jabs at himself about the ridiculous situation.

The infamous ban was once again brought up recently, this time during TwitchCon 2019, as part of a larger parody video about the two-time Blockbuster champion.

Team Liquid’s PaladinAmber, fitted with a fake mustache and a pair of dark sunglasses, posed as the Doc’s “second cousin, twice removed,” and went around the event attempting to show respect towards everyone.

Team Liquid - TwitterPaladinAmber, posing as Doc’s distant cousin, poked fun at the Two-Time’s bathroom ban.

She started the skit off right away by removing her large sunglasses, saying it wasn’t respectful to wear them indoors. 

“Welcome to the 2019 TwitchCon,” she said. “Excuse me a moment, it’s not respectful to wear sunglasses inside. I’ve decided, that last year, my second cousin twice removed, Dr Disrespect, did not uphold the family name. So here I am, to respect you, your consent to filming, and everything in between. So shall we go and be respectful to everyone?”

At this point, she could be seen walking over to a public restroom, but turned around and stopped any of the cameraman from following her inside – a clear tip of the cap to what the Doc did not do at E3, which eventually landed him the well-documented ban.

The rest of the video maintained the same satirical theme, as she went around the venue and talked to some attendees, doing things like “air hugs” and “air high-fives” to make sure that everyone she encountered was treated with an overwhelming amount of respect,

Despite being tagged numerous times in the post, the Two-Time hasn’t got around to responding to it yet.

However, it appears that the ship sailed much smoother for him at this event than at E3, as all of his meet-and-greets and appearances at TwitchCon 2019 seem to have gone very successfully.

Call of Duty

Dr Disrespect calls out Activision & Warzone tourney admins for hacker drama

Following scandal over a disqualified cheater in a Warzone tournament, Dr Disrespect is calling out Activision’s lack of an anti-cheat and Twitch Rivals’ lack of a formal process for investigating hacks.

In hours of drama that rocked the competitive Call of Duty: Warzone community, a smaller streamer, ‘Metzy_B,’ was accused of cheating during the $250K Twitch Rivals Doritos Bowl tournament. Prior to the final match of the event, his team was disqualified by tournament admins and stripped of any chance at tournament earnings.

Twitch Rivals have remained relatively quiet on the issue, practically ignoring it during the broadcast and offering up a minimally worded explanation over Twitter. In their explanation, the admins simply explained that Metzy “was ruled to be cheating” and subsequently “removed from the event.”

With that lack of transparency, rumors and accusations flew. Former Call of Duty League pro, one of the highest Warzone earners currently, Thomas ‘Tommey’ Trewren spent hours interrogating the accused and having a friend take control of Metzy’s PC to dive through his logs for any proof of hacks. This all leads to Dr Disrespect asserting that, with or without an Activision anti-cheat, tournament organizers need to do better.

As shared by ‘WickedGoodGames,’ the Two-Time has a clear perspective on this issue. If the developers can’t institute an effective anti-cheat, then every single tournament must “define a process in finding out if he is [cheating] or not … obviously outside of the whole Call of Duty not having an anti-cheat kind of software built in.”

The drama was obviously divisive, as most participants in the tournament believed Metzy (and others) to be cheating, while others weren’t so sure. With no one knowing precisely how Twitch handled the situation, the community was left to investigate themselves.

As Dr Disrespect has heard, the “purple snakes” disqualified Metzy based on “a couple suspicious clips” and without asking to check his computer. This is echoed by the accused himself, who has since commended Tommey for trying to figure out what the admins had failed to.

That account goes directly against others, as fellow competitor BobbyPoff reacted by alleging that Metzy was, in fact, originally reluctant to display his task manager logs.

While the truth may be impossible to find at this point, as Twitch Rivals have given no explanation of their process and any number of files could have been deleted by the time Tommey got access, Dr Disrespect’s point is proven by the drama.

If Activision can’t deliver a functioning anti-cheat and tournament organizers don’t have a strict, transparent policy for hackers — then community infighting over a “grey area” is unavoidable.
