Fans of popular streamer Dr Disrespect are crying out for his return to Twitch, but when does The Doc’s ban from the platform expire? Here’s everything we know.

A quick search for The Doc on Twitter shows hundreds of fans pining for the restoration of the Champions Club leader’s channel, but official information on his return has been scarce.

The Doc posted a special recap video of his trip to E3 on June 15, but the only mention of the bathroom escapades that saw his channel banned was a clip taken from his stream that showed him entering the men’s room and ducking into a cubicle. When can we expect to see the triumphant return of TwitchDocTV?

Twitch: DrDisrespectThe Doc has been missing from Twitch for over a week.

How long is Dr Disrespect’s Twitch ban?

For fans of the streamer, the bad news is that there has been no official word from either Dr Disrespect or Twitch in regards to how long his suspension from the site will last.

The ban originally came into effect on Tuesday, June 11, and with The Doc’s channel still unavailable eight days later on June 19, it seems likely that he has received at least a two week ban, and could possibly be as long as 30 days.

According to a comment made by a fan, TSM streamer Colton ‘Viss’ Visser claims that the ban is indeed a 30 day suspension on stream, although the clip no longer appears to be available.

It’s also possible that it is a permanent ban from the site for breaching the service’s Community Guidelines, however this seems unlikely as this is the first time Dr Disrespect has been punished by the Amazon-owned service.

Dexerto have reached out to both Dr Disrespect and Twitch for confirmation on the length of the ban.

When will The Doc be unbanned?

Should The Doc’s suspension last for two weeks, it’s expected that he would make his return to the site on June 26, which would be 14 full days following his punishment.

If he’s been banned for 30 days though, viewers eager to see “Violence, speed and momentum” back on Twitch will have to wait until mid-July, with a probable return date of July 10.

Why was Dr Disrespect banned on Twitch?

The leader of the Champions Club was banned after performing an IRL stream at the E3 Expo, in which he and his camera man entered the men’s bathroom on a number of occasions during the broadcast. Many members of the online community have spoken out about his actions, with plenty supporting his but also backing Twitch’s move to suspend him. 

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg is perhaps the biggest name to speak about the ban. The Swede stated that it wasn’t as big as a deal as others were making out as the intention wasn’t to film anybody else, but to only follow the streamer.

The Doc also had his attendance at E3 cut short by the organizers themselves, who revoked his badge, rendering him unable to return to the convention center.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
