DrDisRespect: Through the Years
'DrDisRespect,' "Guy," or 'The Doc' is born with the name Herschel Beahm IV on March 10, 1982, in California. The 38-year-old streamer is surprisingly 6'8" with a vertical reach of 38 inches, an exciting fact that ESPN shared.
Legit said that Beahm is a graduate of California State Polytechnic University in Pomona, where he played basketball that even got him into the NCAA Division II.
He occasionally plays video games, and his whole 'Doctor' persona developed way back in 2004 when Xbox's Halo 2 offered him and a couple of other gamers a chance to 'voice chat' in real-time.
2011 allowed him to be a community manager for "Sledgehammer Games" where he rose to be a level designer that ultimately led to his contribution of maps to hit shooter game, "Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare."
Shortly, he joined Justin.Tv, who then changed its name to Twitch. In 2015, he quit Sledgehammer and went on to be a full-time online streamer for the channel.
'The Doc' won two awards in 2017 that stayed true to his nickname 'The Two-Time Champion' in the Esports Industry award as Streamer of the Year and The Game Awards' Trending Gamer. Shortly, DrDisRespect went on hiatus to fix his personal life and relationship with his wife after having a miscarriage of the latter.
2018 marked a new all-time high for 'The Doc' as his Twitch stream comeback reached 388,000 viewers, where he explained his hiatus and personal life.
DrDisRespect, Twitch, and his future
In March 2020, DrDisRespect signed a multi-million dollar 2-year contract with Twitch that marked a significant milestone in his gaming career. However, just a few months after, 'The Doc' got permanently banned from the streaming platform.
Despite the exclusive contract, 'The Two-Time' did not continue to stream for Twitch. Details about the ban were undisclosed, and fans seem to think that it is purposively being kept out-of-record.
DrDisRespect finally made a comeback after teasing with his Lambo parked in an abandoned gas station. His YouTube subscriber count bumped twice as much from 1.78 million to 2.35 million. In his stream, he opened up about what happened but kept the details in secret. Sponsors of the beloved gamer backed him up in a series of tweets and comments.
