A series of interviews with Guy “Dr. Disrespect” Beahm hit the internet this morning.
They were filled with non-answers, very little new information and seemed to serve more as a publicity campaign than any attempt to actually unearth new information or give fans a sense of what actually happened with the Twitch star and his mysterious perma-ban from the streaming site.
I would link you to the individual interviews, but what’s the point? You won’t know anything new when you’re done reading. Doc still insists he doesn’t know what the reason is behind the Twitch ban. Anytime an interviewer gets too close to a sensitive subject, a publicist hops in and steers the conversation into milder waters.
So yeah, nothing of use there. Just getting Dr. Disrespect back out there with some respectable cover.
It appears that this “comeback campaign” is just getting started, however. On Twitter, Beahm has posted yet another tweet.
This is only the second tweet the streaming personality has made since the Twitch ban last month. His first tweet served only to inform his fans—the Champions Club—that he had no idea what “the specific reason behind” Twitch’s decision.
I wrote about how odd this tweet was when it landed, and I maintain that the phrasing remains puzzling at best.
Today’s tweet is, if anything, even more cryptic. It’s a video of Dr. Disrespect standing in the rain with dramatic synth music playing over everything. It has a distinctly Cyberpunk 2077 vibe, which may or may not mean anything.
The lyrics: “It’s out of my hands…but I’m still in control. It’s out of my hands…you can never take away the power of my soul.” I have to say, I dig the synth track. But the video itself? Well . . . give it a look.
Another interesting thing to note checking out the Doc’s Twitter profile is that his Twitch page has been replaced with his YouTube channel. This makes sense given that wherever he lands, it probably won’t be Twitch. YouTube is a natural alternative, though other possibilities remain.
What do you make of all of this? The interviews, the video, etc? Is this a publicity campaign designed to get Beahm back in the public eye? Is there still something going on behind the scenes that might blow up in everyone’s faces? Will we ever know the truth?
