Twitch star Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar has refused to confirm or deny if he has inside information on why Dr Disrespect was banned on the platform, but he’s made one thing clear – he’s not entertaining any “sources.” 

The two streamers have created enormous followings on Twitch, with millions following Tim’s channel still, but me

mbers of the Champions Club having been issued refunds since Doc had his channel abruptly removed on June 26.

Since then, the world’s most talked-about streamer right now has confirmed there been no reasoning given, leaving his fanbase and everybody else wondering what exactly led to such firm action being taken.

With a lack of information currently available online, this has led to hundreds, if not thousands, of users on Twitter claiming to have the inside scoop.

Dr Disrespect was one of Twitch’s biggest streamers before being struck with a ban.

Some, like Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, have been covering the situation extensively since the news broke and claimed it wasn’t due to a DMCA problem. Others, however, have been lingering in the comments saying they know the reason why, but refuse to spill the tea.

On balance, nobody has really come forward with anything concrete as of yet.

During a broadcast on June 29, some fans watching along in Tim’s stream asked him to comment on supposed rumors that Dr Disrespect’s ban may finish his career.

To that point, he said: “I just don’t think, and here’s the thing bro, everybody keeps saying ‘sources, sources, sources, sources…’ Me, personally, I don’t want to assume the worst.

“I am just going to wait and see what happens. That’s no offence to anyone who is making tweets about sources and all this stuff, right. If they want to do that, go for it, but me personally, I’m just going to wait.”

This wasn’t the only time TimTheTatman was asked about Dr Disrespect during the stream. As he may have expected before going live that day, everybody wants to know what’s going on with Doc and are looking for answers. From sources, or otherwise.

In another exchange, fans put other ‘rumors’ to Tim for comment. This time, they asked about him linking up with the Two-Time to start up a new streaming company, and whether or not there was a connection between the new start-up called Brime and his ban.

After holding his head in hands, and smirking, he said: “I’m not going to answer you yes or no, but here’s what I’ll say to you. Based on what you know about me, a lot of you know I’m very lazy, I don’t like doing any work. I barely do anything. Do you think I’m going to try to create my own streaming platform?”

Now, he’s probably been a bit hard on himself with the comment on being lazy.

The popular figure has worked tremendously hard to build up the success he’s enjoying on Twitch, although it does appear that he’s somewhat comfortable in his current spot.

Once we know more about the Dr Disrespect Twitch ban we’ll be the first to let you know. Until then, it looks like the rumor mill will keep on turning, but Tim won’t be listening to these “sources” either way.


Daequan’s first tweet after 6-month hiatus sparks hope for Twitch return

Daequan ‘Daequan’ Loco has broken his six-month social media silence in time for Thanksgiving. While the tweet was short and sweet, it has given fans of the former TSM Fortnite star hope for a potential return to Twitch.

Daequan has practically disappeared from the public eye in 2020. He vowed that he’d try to return to Twitch by January 2020 after taking time off to focus on his health, but hasn’t made an appearance on the platform since December 2019.

On top of that, he’s gone quiet on socials, not posting anything since March. While he has moved in with long-time friend and former duo Hamlinz in the meantime, there wasn’t any indication he was coming back to streaming.

However, Daequan has finally broken his silence to give thanks to his fans on Thanksgiving, and tell everyone that he is getting along just fine.

“Feeling better than I have in years. Always thankful,” the short message red, with a selfie of the streamer.

The tweet has gone viral, with over 100,000 fans liking the tweet, and many of his contemporaries sending him messages of support, including TimtheTatman, NICKMERCS, and Classify.

Daequan’s eight-word return has also managed to spark hope in his fanbase of a potential return to streaming. No matter whether it’s Fortnite, or a new game that’s come out in his absence like Valorant, Daequan’s fans are itching to see him back on the platform.

There is potential for a return. Hamlinz has been a bit more active on social media, and Tfue even tried to get him to turn on the stream ⁠— even if just for a day.

No matter what though, Daequan is taking things at his own pace. He’s still on that journey to better health, and will return in his own time when he believes it’s right.

Fans of Daequan will be hoping it’s not another six months until we hear from the TSM Fortnite star again, but only time will tell if he actually commits to returning to streaming.
