Det var strax över fyra år sen nu som världens femte största streamer, Doctor Disrespect, stängdes av från Twitch vilket ledde till att han stämde sin gamla samarbetspartner och i omgångar klargjorde till sina fans att han inte ens kände till varför de valt att stänga av hans ytterst populära gamingkanal. Under gårdagen dök det upp information på X via en före detta Twitch-medarbetare som för första gången avslöjade anledningen till varför Disrespect bannades utan förvarning från världens största spelstreamingplattform.

Enligt Cody Conners skickade Disrespect sex-SMS till en 17-årig praktikant hos Twitch vilket gjorde att han bannades, något som streamern nu bekräftar men förklarar samtidigt att han inte gjorde något fel, att ingen var kränkt, ingen ankklagades, åtalades eller lade fram några bevis på att något otillåtet gjorts.

Cody Conners via X:
"He got banned because got caught sexting a minor in the then existing Twitch whispers product. He was trying to meet up with her at TwitchCon. The powers that be could read in plain text. Case closed, gang." Källa

Detta bemötte då Dr Disrespect via X en stund efter att hans egen spelstudio kickat honom och hans långvariga huvudsponsor Turtle Beach avslutat deras samarbete med omedelbar verkan:
"Lets cut the fucking bullshit, as you know there’s no filter with me. I’ve always been up front and real with you guys on anything that I can be up front about, and I’m always willing to accept responsibility… which is why I’m here now. First and foremost I do want to apologize to everyone in my community as well as those close to me, my team, and everyone at Midnight Society Game Studio A lot of people have been left in the dark about what happened yesterday with midnight society and I, and we made the painful decision collectively, to have me step down. Our team is full of incredibly talented and good people that have high career ambitions and families and i’d never want jeopardize the culture we have carefully crafted.

Everyone has been wanting to know why I was banned from twitch, but for reasons outside of my control, I was not allowed to say anything for the last several years. Now that two former twitch employees have publicly disclosed the accusations, I can now tell you my side of the story regarding the ban. Were there twitch whisper messages with an individual minor back in 2017? The answer is yes. Were there real intentions behind these messages, the answer is absolutely not. These were casual, mutual conversations that sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate, but nothing more. Nothing illegal happened, no pictures were shared, no crimes were committed, I never even met the individual. I went through a lengthy arbitration regarding a civil dispute with twitch and that case was resolved by a settlement. Let me be clear, it was not a criminal case against me and no criminal charges have ever been brought against me.

Now, from a moral standpoint I’ll absolutely take responsibility. I should have never entertained these conversations to begin with. That’s on me. That’s on me as an adult, a husband and a father. It should have never happened. I get it. I’m not perfect and I’ll fucking own my shit. This was stupid. Now, with all this said, don’t get it fucking mistaken, I’ve seen all the remarks and labels being throw around so loosely. Social media is a destruction zone. I’m no fucking predator or pedophile. Are you kidding me? Anyone that truely knows me fucking knows where I stand on those things with those types of people. Fuck that. That’s a different level of disgust that I fucking hate even hearing about. Don’t be labeling me as the worst of the worst with your exaggerations. Get the fuck outta here with that shit.

But I think I’ve said what I needed to say regarding the ban itself. That’s it. That’s why twitch made the decision in 2020. To my team, community, industry friends that have supported me, I apologize, I wish I could’ve said all this sooner. You guys have always showed me and my family love and support throughout all these years we love you guys like you can’t imagine. I have the fucking best community and circle. If any of this has made you uncomfortable, I get it. You don’t have to support me anymore but just know you have always been greatly appreciated. But trust me when I say this…to all my haters that live and breath social media with zero real life experience, I don’t give a fuck about you. Finally, if you’re uncomfortable with this entire statement and think I’m a piece of shit, that’s fine. But I’m not fucking going anywhere. I’m not the same guy that made this mistake all those years ago. I’m taking an extended vacation with my family as mentioned on stream and I’m coming back with a heavy weight off my shoulders. They want me to disappear… yeah fucking right." Källa

Storyn fortsätter när en annan före detta Twitch-anställd via läckta e-mail menar att SMS:n som Disrespect skickade till 17-åringen var hövligt vanliga och inte innehöll något olämpligt alls. Han menar också att Twitch letade efter en anledning att tysta en gaphals som Disrespect och tog första möjliga chans att göra så när det framkom att han kommunicerat med en 17-åring. Samma källa hävdar i samma veva att Disrespect omöjligen hade kunnat veta att personen han skrev med inte var i vuxen ålder, vilket enligt källan gör detta ännu larvigare. Detta medan andra inblandade tydligen beskriver Disrespect som en "olustig figur".

Hur tror du att detta kommer att sluta?
