Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV (age 39), often known as Dr. Disrespect, is an American YouTube streamer and a former Twitch streamer.
Herschel had accumulated almost four million followers on Twitch and is best known for streaming battle royale video games.
These include PUBG (PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds), Black Ops 4: Blackout, Call of Duty: Warzone, Apex Legends, and Fortnite.
He was born on March 10, 1982, is 6 feet 6 inches tall, and weighs 95 kgs.
In 2020, he was banned from Twitch. Additionally, his YouTube channel was also removed and no reason was given for the act.
However, he returned to YouTube on August 7, 2020, and had a total peak of around 510,000 concurrent viewers.
Career and personal life
From California State Polytechnic University, Herschel graduated in 2005. He played NCAA Division II basketball at the university.
His first video was posted explaining the gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 in January 2010.
He has also been featured in multiple videos for Machinima, a gaming channel mostly for playing Call of Duty.
He went inactive in 2011 and didn’t publish any content for nearly five years.
Herschel was appointed as the fellowship director of Sledgehammer Games on March 16, 2011. Soon, he was promoted to level designer.
He also helped in the creation of many of the multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
He joined Justin.tv (now Twitch) during a performance with Sledgehammer.
However, to take up a full-time streaming career, he quit Sledgehammer in 2015.
Starting with H1Z1, he gained a following from playing battle royale games. He then switched to PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.
Then he pushed to playing Call of Duty: Black Ops 4.
But in December 2017, Herschel took a two-month break from streaming.
This was because he faced a difficult time with his wife, Mrs. Assassin (real name unknown). The couple has a daughter together.
With a total peak of around 388,000 concurrent viewers, Herschel returned to streaming on February 5, 2018.
He could have nearly broken Tyler1’s record of 410,000 but failed at it.
His popularity has also steered him into sponsorship deals with Gillette, ASUS, Roccat, and Game Fuel.
According to Herschel, an unknown person shot at his home with a gun and hit an upstairs window on September 11, 2018. This was the second time that an incident like this had happened.
Creative Artists Agency endorsed Herchel as a client on January 10, 2019.
He also signed a multi-year contract with Twitch in March 2020.
On March 30, 2021, Herschel released a book called Violence.
E3 bathroom filming incident
Herschel’s Dr. Disrespect Twitch channel was suspended on June 11, 2019. This was because he was live-streaming while auditing the 2019 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in California.
Herschel and his cameraman went into a public restroom (Beahm re-entered the toilet twice while the filming was still going on) at the venue in violation of Twitch’s privacy laws within the California legal code.
Additionally, E3 organizer, Entertainment Software Association, canceled Herschel’s E3 pass after banning him from the event.
However, on June 25, Twitch reappointed his channel.
Permanent ban from Twitch
Due to the violation of Community Guidelines and Terms of Service, Herschel’s account was banned from Twitch on June 26, 2020.
Twitch released a statement saying, “As is our process, we take appropriate action when we have evidence that a streamer has acted in violation of our Community Guidelines or Terms of Service. These apply to all streamers regardless of status or prominence in the community”.
Specific details were, however, not released.
Herschel tweeted on June 27 that the reason behind the ban had not yet been told to him. He finally broke his silence on the matter after 20 days, when he was being interviewed by PC Gamer and the Washington Post.
He insisted that he still doesn’t know why Twitch banned him from their platform. Additionally, he also stated that his contracts were still on the rise.
He debunked “crazy speculations” and theories that had developed during the incident. He also revealed that he is concentrating on his upcoming “Doc 3.0” personality.
On Transfiguration, after going 42 days without streaming, he tweeted a link to his YouTube channel with the caption “Tomorrow, we arrive.”
He went live on YouTube at that very moment but the stream only displayed a looping video of a custom Champions Club gasoline station.
He also confirmed that he would appear live on the stream at 12:00 PM PT on a subsequent day.
On August 7, Dr. Disrespect returned to his stream at 1 pm PDT. To this date, the reason for his ban remains unknown.
Jimmy Wong, an American actor and musician, compiled a series of clips during which Herschel exaggerated Chinese accents and their language.
He accused him of racism.
In response, Dr. Disrespect said that some of his best friends are Asian and called the criticism “laughable”.
Beahm’s on-stream persona is typically ruthless, quick-witted, and bombastic.
He is often considered an entertainer within the streaming industry and less of a “professional gamer.”
ESPN describes him as “a WWE character inside the competitive gaming world”.
He has often said that “I originated a personality who plays multiplayer video games.” He has also classified himself as “the foremost dominating gaming specimen”.
When playing the Dr. Disrespect character, Herschel wears a black mullet wig, sunglasses, a red or black long-sleeved husky moisture-wicking shirt, and a red or black tactical vest.
Awards and nominations
In the year of 2017, the Esports Industry Awards and The Game Awards awarded Dr. Disrespect with Streamer of the Year award.
He has also won the Esports Industry Awards’ Streamer of the Year back in 2019.
