Twitch streamers and YouTubers appearing in video games has become increasingly common nowadays. The latest internet star to receive this treatment is the controversial figure Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm.
He joins the online multiplayer shooter Rogue Company as a Legendary Skin for the character Dallas. This is the same game that went free-to-play on Switch at the start of October. Dr Disrespect is also getting his very own map called “The Arena”.
While Dr Disrespect isn’t the first influencer to join Rogue Company, it’s certainly interesting timing. He was banned from Twitch in June – just months after signing a multi-year deal with the platform for millions. Beahm says he still doesn’t know why he was banned and Twitch has refused to provide a statement.
Before this, Beahm’s Twitch account was previously suspended for live streaming in a bathroom at E3 2019. On top of this, he’s been accused of racism and was more recently called out for spreading coronavirus conspiracies on stream.
