Popular Twitch streamer and internet personality Guy Beahm, otherwise known as Dr Disrespect, has broken character to officially deliver a response to his bans from both Twitch and E3 2019, after broadcasting in a public bathroom at the event.

Beahm posted a Twitlonger link from his personal account on July 1, nearly two weeks after his ban on June 12.

“I’d like to talk about Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban from E3,” he wrote, addressing his persona in the third person.

Beahm’s Twitlonger post, as shown below, attributed his “mishap” to occuring during his first-ever IRL stream in character as the Doc – a persona that he wanted to go “all in” with during his first real-life broadcast.

“When we were walking around filming at E3, we clearly weren’t thinking about the laws/repercussions of filming in the bathroom because honestly, it wasn’t in our mind frame at the time,” Beahm explained. “We were sort of ‘all in’ with the Doc livestream experience and capturing the E3 event through the character. We were so into the E3 IRL journey that we became a little blind in what’s ok and what’s not ok.”

Beahm went on to deliver an apology on behalf of his brand, and labeled the incident a “step back,” asking his fanbase to stick with him as he continues his streaming career.

“This incident was a step back, but like anything, we learn, become stronger, and move forward,” he wrote. “If you follow the brand or myself, I hope you continue to stay with me on this vision.”

While the Doc uploaded a humorous video recapping his E3 experience on June 13, he was relatively silent about the matter, revealing that his manager had been fired amidst the debacle – which caught the attention of major online personalities, in the process.

The Doc later announced his return to Twitch on June 27, with a humorous video skit that revealed his comeback for July 8.

While fans are already chomping at the bit for his return to the platform, it looks like Guy Beahm is taking some well-needed time off to reflect on his bathroom streaming debacle, as evidenced by his July 1 statement on the matter.

TikTok star roasted by Detroit Lions for quitting shaved head challenge

TikTok continues to pump out some of the net’s hottest challenges, but one user has gone viral for not keeping up her end of the bargain — even after receiving comments from the Detroit Lions.

TikTok is the net’s most viral video platform for a reason; having pumped out such hits as the ‘Savage’ and ‘Say so’ dances, among other memes, the app has become an online sensation in the past two years.

However, it’s for more than just dancing and lip syncing; some users have begun calling out certain celebrities, sports teams and brands with a unique challenge, with such premises as: “If [X] comments on this post, then I’ll do [Y.]”

For one TikToker, this meant shaving off her entire head of long, blonde hair if the Detroit Lions decided to comment on her video.

Unfortunately for her, they did; as did the Pittsburgh Steelers, Carolina Panthers and the Seattle Mariners, all top-tier sports teams with huge fan followings.

Despite getting the attention she’d hoped for, it doesn’t look like the TikToker — going by the username ‘kenzie’ — held up her end of the deal.

In a response video on December 1, Kenzie admitted that she didn’t have the desire to shave her head, and instead decided to shave that of one of her male friends.

“Didn’t think it would blow up and really didn’t wanna have a pixie cut for the next three years,” Kenzie explained in the video’s caption.

Needless to say, she was promptly roasted by the sports teams who had commented on her previous video as well as random onlookers, who made sure to voice their displeasure in the comments section.

“Disappointed but not surprised,” the Tampa Bay Rays said.

“You got all those likes AND got noticed by the Detroit Lions and didn’t even live up to your word,” a commenter wrote. “That’s embarrassing.”

However, the Detroit Lions themselves had a hilarious response, indicating that their “respect” had shifted from Kenzie to the poor soul she’d recruited for her head-shaving mishap.

All in all, it seems that this is a good lesson in keeping your end of a deal — or rather, being a bit more realistic about what you’re willing to do for views.
