Dr Disrespect on his Financial Losses

Dr Disrespect revealed how much the Twitch ban had affected him financially in his latest video. The Two-Time after joining YouTube, says,

“I make probably a fourth, a quarter, of what I was making on Twitch.”  

This would mean that the ban must have cost him $1.5 million within a year.

 

He talks about how the ban cost him networking opportunities with the likes of EA and Activision. Explaining to his professional partners, he says,

“But, the Twitch ban has really, really affected us, not just from a financial standpoint, but from a networking standpoint. From all the relationships we’ve built in the past 5 years in terms of Activision to EA. All the big partners and sponsorships have to question, ‘why’d you get banned?’

But this does not mean that he is not doing well enough for himself. Even though he says that he has been blacklisted and shadowbanned by some partners and sponsors, he is still making the best out of whatever he has. Currently, the Two-Time holds 3.46 million subscribers on his YouTube channel compared to the 4 million on his Twitch. He has still managed to withhold brand partnerships with Turtle Beach, Mountain Dew Game Fuel, and Fanduel.

Is the Two-Time suing Twitch?

In the same video where he talked about his financial pitfalls from the ban, Dr Disrespect also says that he is “suing the f**k out of Twitch.”

“There’s a reason why, and I’ll just say this right now, champs — there’s a reason why we’re suing the f**k out of em, ok? I don’t know how else to put it, the amount of damages, and you just don’t… nah.”
