DrDisrespect seeks support from YouTube

The 40-years-old ‘Two Timer’ in a recent tweet on his personal account confessed that he has not been given the love and support that he deserves from YouTube. Regarding his YouTube streams, he said, “No follow, zero communication, absolutely no love.”

As a matter of fact, Doc has around 4.05 million subscribers on YouTube; but a lesser viewership than most streamers with a much lower subscriber count. This also raises some concerns about his hourly streaming ratio, which is getting significantly average day by day. Also, his arrival on YouTube permanently after his lawsuit with Twitch has left a scar on his streaming career.

Notably, DrDisrespect sought some support and love from YouTube as he claims to have a massive impact on the streaming platform as a content creator. Regarding this, he said, “The impact we’ve had on YouTube streaming growth is insane.” He further complained to YouTube by adding, “We’ve been taken advantage of…Jesus YouTube, show some respect.”

Why can’t The Two Timer leave YouTube?

There is a reason why DrDisrespect can’t leave YouTube, and that is Twitch. In June 2020, when Twitch banned Doc for unknown reasons, the streamer had to look up to YouTube as his only way of streaming.

Although many players switch from Twitch to YouTube for better pay and working conditions, Doc wasn’t given that facility because he chose to join YouTube as a secondary medium. If he would have joined YouTube Gaming by signing a contract, then the story would have been something else today.

But since he wasn’t given any contract by YouTube to date, the question arises: will DrDisrespect be able to survive in such harsh competition? Notably, some may say that it is not very likely for him to stay relevant to the streaming community, but fans know that DrDisrespect is a fighter and will continue his journey no matter what.
