Streaming platform Twitch has often shown bias against certain creators. The biggest victim of such partial behavior has been Dr Disrespect. Though the former Twitch streamer has managed to find a new home for himself, he still awaits some relief from the streaming platform. However, for the past few months, Twitch has been disrespecting the ‘Two Time‘ with its current suspension policy.

As Doc waits for Twitch to unban him, the Amazon-owned service has since banned and unbanned various creators. From Clix to Codemiko and 100 Thieves Tommey, Twitch has spared many big streaming names. Now, it has once again reversed the ban of a popular creator within hours of suspending their account.

In fresh news, Twitch recently banned Ryan Higa’s channel for controversial reasons. However, his friends and fans soon came to his defense as they started a campaign on Twitter to get Ryan unbanned. Their efforts proved successful as the streaming platform sent an apology mail to Ryan soon after calling the ban a mistake.

Even an army of fans couldn’t convince Twitch to unban Dr Disrespect

Replying to Ryan’s announcement after Twitch lifted his suspension, a fan pointed out how an army of fans always helps big streamers get out of such pickles. On the other hand, if it were an upcoming streamer, they could have never managed similar support.

Clearly, this hasn’t worked for Dr Disrespect, as even after being one of the most popular streamers, he can’t stream on Twitch. It is going to be the anniversary of Doc’s suspension this year, and there is no update from either party. Naturally, Doc has faced a lot of trouble due to this, but he has come back strong on YouTube Gaming.

Valkyrae and CouRage come to Ryan Higa’s defense

Right after Ryan’s ban, his dear friend Valkyrae took to Twitter to command Twitch to unban him. Soon after her tweet, many fans followed suit. Jack “CouRage” Dunlop, another 100 Thieves content creator, joined Rae’s campaign to get Ryan unbanned.

Even though Dr Disrespect is stuck in a similar situation, he has asked his friends to not participate in his issue. Ever since Twitch updated its policy after Doc showed up in Nadeshot’s stream, things have become even more difficult. At this point in time, it would be smarter for Doc to continue on YouTube.
