Dr Disrespect Attempted His First IRL Stream and Got Banned Almost Immediately

Dr Disrespect is one of the world's most popular Twitch streamers, and like many of those shining bastions of streaming culture, he decided to try and take his streams into the real world, as he attended E3. It did not go well.

According to the Twitter-verse and several news outlets, it seems that one recurring gag saw Dr Disrespect being followed into several men's rooms while he relieved himself. As you might expect, there were several people in those rooms that hadn't given any sort of consent to being filmed — including what looks to be a minor, if a bystander's snap on their phone is to be believed. (We're not linking any videos or photos here. You're welcome.)

As anyone with a couple of brain cells might suspect, filming people without consent is against Twitch's community guidelines, not to mention being illegal in a heck of a lot of places. California legislature specifically prohibits filming in public bathrooms, so a couple of bans may end up being the least of the doctor's woes.

Dr Disrespect has been banned without fanfare or statement from Twitch, which is business as usual for the platform. It's also business as usual to typically let most people back onto the service within 30 days, so this certainly won't be the end of his reign.

According to Kotaku, the streamer's E3 pass has also been revoked by the ESA, leaving men's bathrooms to slide back to their base level of being awkward, terrifying places that you want to leave immediately.
