Jaryd ‘summit1g‘ Lazar has clamied that he has benefited from a viewership boost since Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch at E3 2019 – and he has called for more Champions Club members to join him on his channel.

The popular Twitch streamer, who has nearly 4 million followers on the streaming platform, was still on the World of Warcraft grind on June 11, and couldn’t help but notice that a flood of people in the chat were talking about one thing and one thing only – Dr Disrespect being banned. 

The self-proclaimed ‘face of Twitch’ broadcasted his first ever IRL stream at E3 2019, but after recording inside a men’s bathroom, his channel was quickly suspended.

While many Doc fans might have expected summit1g to question the ban, he was amused by the fact that it resulted in his own views getting a boost.

“I think I’m getting more viewers because Doc got banned, because people want to tell me [about it],” he said during his June 11 livestream. “This is working out for me really well.”

“Listen guys, if the Champions Club is no longer available, then the only place left is the 1G Squad,” he jokingly continued, “We’ll accept you I guess, for five dollars.”

Summit isn’t the only high-profile streamer to have been asked about Dr Disrespect’s ban since his channel was suspended, with Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney posting about it on Twitter. 

The former came out in support of the ban, but Tfue wants the Doc to return – tweeting: “Free Dr Disrespect,” along with a photo of him wearing Doc’s attire.

While Doc’s suspension has been the big talking point on Twitch, we expect him to be back streaming on Twitch soon.

Some fans may stray away and subscribe to other streamers in the meantime, though, and summit1g certainly isn’t going to close the door on any Champions Club members.

Twitch streamer banned after being denied partnership over age

Twitch streamer AverageHarry has been permanently banned after his partnership application was denied, and they discovered he allegedly signed up while under the age of 13.

AverageHarry has been through a bit of a roller-coaster ride lately. It started back in October 2020 when a video of him getting mocked by strangers and crying on stream went viral.

Since then, his popularity skyrocketed, and he applied to become a Twitch partnered streamer. However, the application was denied in January 2021 after discovering he made the account when he was less than 13 years old, which didn’t align with his account details.

But the drama doesn’t end there. Twitch also said he could lose access to his account because of the restriction. Now, it appears they have doubled down on that claim and made it happen.

Twitch: AverageHarry
AverageHarry went viral after some strangers laughed at him in public while he was streaming.

“I have just been permabanned on Twitch,” said AverageHarry. “For anyone wondering, this is why. He shared a previous tweet, which included a screenshot of the email he received when they denied his application.

“You’ve listed your age as 15, although this doesn’t appear to align with your account details,” said Twitch. “Please get in touch with Twitch support in order to see whether you can update your birthday to be accurate. Otherwise, you may need to make a new account with correct details.”

However, AverageHarry hasn’t given up yet. “I’ll have a video out tomorrow talking about it all,” he said. “I am allowed to make another account, but I have just lost nearly 90k followers.”

He might try and have the ban overturned, which could happen if enough people rally behind him. And it seems like they are, with many people sharing their support on social media. “He genuinely seemed like a good kid,” wrote one user. “Hope he makes a new account and stuff.”

“That Twitch account was made by his parents and given to him by his parents after he was 13 and provided proof for that,” wrote another. “But [he] still got his account removed. [I] hope the best for him.”

In the end, though, Twitch is treating it as a serious matter and won’t want to set a precedent. So, it will be interesting to see what happens and whether their decision is final.
