Guy “DrDisrespect” Beahm and Midnight Society studio head Robert Bowling have publicly responded to the creator cofounder and company terminating their relationship.

Yesterday, the developer behind Web3 extraction shooter Deadrop, cut ties with DrDisrespect. Last week, a former Twitch employee disclosed that the platform banned the streamer in 2020 because he “inappropriately messaged” a minor in 2017. Until today, DrDisrespect has not discussed his ban in-depth due to a legal settlement between himself and the Amazon-owned games streaming platform.

In his statement, DrDisrespect acknowledges he did send messages to a minor, but he characterizes them as “casual, mutual conversations that sometimes leaned too much in the direction of being inappropriate, but nothing more.” He further contends that he did not commit a crime, share pictures with this minor or meet them in-person.

THE TWITCH BANHello, I’d like to make a quick statement..Lets cut the fucking bullshit, as you know there’s no filter with me. I’ve always been up front and real with you guys on anything that I can be up front about, and I’m always willing to accept responsibility… which…— Dr Disrespect (@DrDisrespect) June 25, 2024

Additionally, Beahm said that the decision to terminate his relationship with Midnight Society was made collectively. “Our team is full of incredibly talented and good people that have high career ambitions and families and I’d never want jeopardize the culture we have carefully crafted,” said Beahm’s statement.
