Twitch users were amazed to find out that one of the most popular streamers, DrDisRespect, or Doc for his followers, will stop recording live streams. His decision is not permanent, but he now wants to dedicate more time to his family. This was somehow expected, as he admitted to cheating on his wife during the same video where he announced his break.
DrDisRespect took a break from streaming
DrDisRespect shocked his fans with one unusual stream which had nothing to do with gaming. Instead of recording himself while playing, he appeared as his alter ego Guy Beahm (which is actually his real identity). Then, he decided to discuss serious subjects, and revealed he wanted to be honest with his followers.
He declared himself grateful for his beautiful family, but a shadow obscured his marriage. He admitted to having cheating on his wife, which forced him to enter a hiatus. He said he needed more time for himself, to spend with his family. This way, maybe he would be able to save his marriage and apologize to his wife.
The streamer admitted to having cheated on his wife
DrDisRespect apologized to all his fans, to those who sponsor him, and to the platform Twitch. He didn’t want to upset anybody, but doesn’t support such a behavior. Therefore, he felt he needed to clarify some things and encourage people not to act like that.
The reactions to this confession video were both positive and negative. Some users blamed him for his behavior towards his wife, while others showed their admiration for him. Fans will keep supporting him, and are happy he was brave enough to publicly admit his deeds.
Over the past year, many YouTube streamers and fans started claiming that DrDisRespect was unfaithful. Although they didn’t offer any evidence to support this claim, some said Doc finally decided to admit his infidelity because of these declarations.
