Doc has now expressed his dissatisfaction with the unfair treatment and has promised to sue the Twitch. This has created a rebellion on Twitch with streamers like ZLaner and now even Cloakzy openly talking about missing Doc. ZLaner has been actively taking shots at the platform just for his dear friend and Cloakzy has joined the party as well.

“I want to play with Doc so f*****g bad, what if I? Listen,  what if I stream, right? I stream with Doc, Z didn’t get banned, right? Z didn’t get banned, so I’m thinking, I stream with Doc, the worst thing that can happen is I get banned for like two weeks, or a month. But, then I have two weeks or a month off of streaming, uh fivehead right and then I come back a month later.”

The 39-year-old streamer’s battle against the platform has now taken a serious turn. With the streamer being on the verge of waging a full-on legal battle. However, he is not alone in his fight against the streaming giant, as more streamers continue to jump to his side. Recently, TimTheTatman and DrLupo made the switch to YouTube Gaming in pursuit of green pastures and a reunion with a dear friend.

Earlier in the year, Doc shed light on his situation with Twitch and why he was banned. Apparently, the streamer’s team has learned the exact reason behind his removal. He also clarified that the reasons aren’t adequate enough to merit such a harsh punishment, which has caused him to lose thousands of dollars.
