Dr. Disrespect statement made on X

On June 25, 2024, Dr Disrespect confirmed on Twitter that he did send messages to a minor in 2017 through Twitch’s Whisper feature. He described these messages as “casual, mutual conversations” that sometimes became inappropriate. He insisted there was no harmful intention or illegal activity. He stressed that no pictures were shared, and he never met the person.

Beahm stated he regrets the incident, saying “it should never have happened.” He also mentioned that he had settled the issue with Twitch through a civil agreement, not a criminal proceeding. This is the first time Beahm has publicly acknowledged the specific reason for his Twitch ban. Please check the full version of Dr. Disrespect statement below:

Turtle Beach Dr. Disrespect collab has ended

The Turtle Beach Dr. Disrespect collab has ended as the company decided not to pursue this partnership. The company had previously sponsored Beahm and produced a special headset themed after him. Turtle Beach told IGN that it would no longer work with Dr Disrespect, as the company wants to maintain its reputation.

This decision came after allegations about Beahm’s inappropriate behavior on Twitch. Ending the partnership with Turtle Beach is a significant loss for Beahm, affecting both financial support and promotional activities.
