A $100,000 tournament hosted by Dr Disrespect had Twitch streamers following some absurd rules to not mention him as he was previously banned from the platform.

Full Squad Gaming’s Jake Lucky shared a recap of these Twitch community guidelines that were posted in-house by the organizer of the event, BoomTV.

“It is prohibited to use your channel to knowingly feature or advertise a suspended user,” the message reads. “We understand that there may be instances where suspended users may appear on your stream due to circumstances beyond your control, such as through third-party gaming tournaments, but we expect that you make a good faith effort to remove them from your broadcast, mute them, or otherwise limit their interactions with your stream.”

The message then shared a “few helpful tips to navigate this tournament if you are a Twitch streamer:”

  • Use “Hot Shot Duo Drop featuring Fortnite” to refer to the event.
  • User other Names for DrDisrespect, example the “two-time”, “Blockbuster video game champion.”
  • Hide images, videos and streams of DrDisrespect from your stream.
  • Mute DrDisrespect in game.
  • Be mindful of showing the tournament/bracket page on stream.

As previously mentioned, this is a recap of sorts of the Twitch community guidelines for Suspension Evasion.

“In addition, it is prohibited to use your channel to knowingly feature or advertise a suspended user,” the guidelines say. “We understand that there may be instances where suspended users may appear on your stream due to circumstances beyond your control, such as through third-party gaming tournaments, but we expect that you make a good faith effort to remove them from your broadcast, mute them, or otherwise limit their interactions with your stream.”

Dr Disrespect was banned from Twitch in June 2020, but the official reason as to why still has not been revealed. In response, Dr Disrespect sued Twitch. He would eventually resolve the lawsuit, but said he had no intention of returning to the platform.

Dr Disrespect now streams on YouTube and also formed a AAA game studio with ex-Halo and Call of Duty devs.
