Fans found out that their favorite streamer has been banned from a Twitch Partners bans tracking account on Twitter ‘StreamerBans.’ But the reason behind his ban remains unknown.
100 Thieves ‘Classy’ suggested the ban could be related to DMCA take down issues, which has been nothing but problematic recently for streamers. Slasher later on tweeted that it’s not DMCA related.
“Just saw @drdisrespect is banned on Twitch. Including the fact he hasn’t done anything recently, can only assume it was a DMCA related ban?? If so…. We’re all so f**ked, he tweeted.

A Twitch representative stated to Polygon in regards to the streamer’s ban.
“As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community,” they said.
