Dr Disrespect is suing Twitch for last’s year permanent ban

The amazon-owned streaming platform, Twitch, never revealed the real reason behind the ban. Fans and Doc were left in disarray, with the streamer’s career on the verge of collapse. In this scenario, Doc had no choice but to take his business elsewhere, which brought him to YouTube Gaming.

The red platform earned one of the biggest streamers in the world without an exclusive deal. Almost a year later, Doc has finally found out the exact reason behind his Twitch ban. The streamer has stated that the reason is quite absurd, and he lost a lot of revenue because of that. He further clarified that he is indeed going to take this matter to the court and sue the company for a wrongful ban and loss of substantial revenue.
