In light of star streamer Dr Disrespect getting banned on Twitch, fellow gaming celebrities Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue‘ Tenney have taken opposite stances on the matter. 

The online gaming community received a major shock when Dr Disrespect IRL Twitch stream from the E3 gaming convention suddenly went offline, his channel disappearing from the website’s directory.

It quickly became apparent that the Two-Time had been banned from the platform, likely for having gone into a public restroom at the event while the cameras were still rolling behind him. 

Predictably, his sudden suspension drew reactions from many prominent content creators, including Ninja and Tfue.

As far as Tfue’s reaction goes, the FaZe star made his stance clear by tweeting out a screenshot of him wearing sunglasses and a fake mustache, captioned by a simple message: “Free Dr Disrespect.” 

As for Ninja, he first reacted with similar style to Tfue’s tweet, posting an image of himself wearing steely sunglasses, a long blonde wig, and a fake mustache, and including a cheeky caption.

“Mr Respectful would have never slipped this hard,” he tweeted.

However, the superstar streamer made his position on the matter much more clear in a response to esports insider Rod ‘Breslau’ Slasher, who had tweeted that he believed Twitch made the correct decision in choosing to suspend the Doc. 

It’s a no brainer dude,” Ninja replied. “I love him, but when you break the rules, you get punished. It’s that simple.”

At this point, it’s not clear how long Doc will be prohibited from streaming on Twitch, although it’s likely to be no more than 24 hours.

Considering his prominence as a celebrity streamer, there is a chance that the platform could choose to make his suspension shorter than what it normally would be. 

When he does return, it will be interesting to hear his side of how things led to the point where his channel got shut down, and whether or not he’ll have something to say about Ninja agreeing with his suspension.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
