It's official. After nearly two years of drama, Dr Disrespect and Twitch have finally reached an agreement, bringing their heated lawsuit to a close at last.

Herschel "Guy" Beahm IV (aka Dr Disrespect) is one of the most instantly recognisable faces in the streaming community, with his iconic mullet and moustache combo as well as his epic Warzone sessions. Things all seemed to be going wonderfully for the content creator after he signed a multi-year contract extension deal with Twitch in March 2020. Then suddenly, without any explanation as to why, Dr Disrespect received a permanent ban from the streaming platform. While fans were astonished, the Doc was livid. 

Following on from the ban, Dr Disrespect took many swipes at Twitch which eventually led to him suing the Amazon-owned platform. The drama has gone back and forth over the past couple of years. However, it now seems as though the dispute is all over as Dr Disrespect has officially resolved his lawsuit with Twitch.
