The streamer recently took to Twitter to make a post to highlight his new year’s resolutions. Most of them seem optimistic. However, the last one has hints of a massive showdown between the popular platform and Dr Disrespect.

The last resolution says, “Unbanned and Massive Payment.” The manner in which this goal is written is an outlier compared to the rest. This resolution is written in purple, the color with which the streaming platform is associated.

The Doctor was banned from Twitch in June 2020. No one knew why the streamer had been banned. Nor did they know if the streamer himself knew why he’d been banned.

Later on, his viewers found out that Dr Disrespect was aware of why he got banned.

At the 5 hour 52nd mark, Dr Disrespect can be seen acknowledging the ban. While he did not go ahead and offer details, it appears that he knows the reason behind his ban.
