Dr DisRespect Twitch Streamer and Online Celebrity
Dr DisRespect was right from the start a name that inspired a mix of curiosity, concern and enthusiasm. The person behind this nickname found a way to extract an astonishing amount from it and he amassed an incredible number of followers on Twitch. Hershey Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm is one of the celebrity streamers who didn’t base their online persona on an outstanding career as professional gamers. However, as a streamer, he was immensely successful right from the start and now has more than 2.5 million Twitch followers and in excess of 80 million channel views.
Frequently referred to as the Doc by the ones watching his streams, Hershey is the proud recipient of some prestigious awards. For his achievements with the Dr DisRespect Twitch channel, he won the Streamer of the Year and Trending Gamer of the Year awards in 2017. Today, he is known for the unmistakable way in which he streams PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds and Fortnite, but his success stories started with H1Z1: King of the Kill. Looking further back into his past, we stumble upon the original Dr DisRespect YouTube channel, where he uploaded his first Call of Duty Black Ops and Modern Warfare 3 games.

PUBG was Dr. DisRespect’s Springboard to Fame
Hershey Guy Beahm is today known for his DisRespect Twitch channel, for the persona he created and his unmistakable antics. Few people know that this is actually a highly versatile individual, capable of excelling in different areas. For a brief period of time he worked as a community manager and later on as a level designer for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare, as he was hired by Sledgehammer Games. It took a lot of courage to put this otherwise secure job behind him and take a leap of faith with streaming.
Armed with the experience of running the successful Dr DisRespect YouTube channel, he dedicated all his time and energy to live streaming H1Z1. This kept him busy for most of 2016, but his big break came with the breakout of PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds. The game became so popular on Twitch, that it became self evident for Hershey that the time was right to make another meaningful transition. The persona he embraced was a borderline caricature, the stereotypical male gamer, overly confident and cocky. This is how Dr DisRespect rose to fame and the calculated risks taken paid off lavishly.

The Dr DisRespect Twitch channel has maintained its upwards trajectory since he chose this path and the number of followers sets new records every year. A free-spirited streamer, unrepentant and always boasting about his real and perceived achievements, Dr DisRespect continues to generate strong emotions. There’s no shortage of people who despise him, but many more appreciate his antics and the way he handles himself through live streams. The two awards secured in 2017 represent important milestones for his live streaming career and have cemented his position as an iconic Internet persona.
For live esports streamers, Twitch is the platform that makes and breaks celebrities, but Hershey didn’t forget completely about his roots. In fact, the Dr DisRespect YouTube channel continues to perform well, with half a million subscribers and a total view count of more than 17 million. At the first glance, it might not look like he puts a lot of effort into it, since the YouTube channel is essentially a compendium of highlights from his Twitch streams. The exceptional editing and the attention paid to details more than make up for the lack of exclusive content and it remains a popular choice among PUBG fans.

Dr. DisRespect Faces Controversies and Rises above Them
Many famous streamers consider that in this line of work, there is no such thing as negative publicity. The surge of the Dr DisRespect Twitch channel and the image of the man behind the Internet persona were shaken by a few incidents over the years. Arguably the greatest challenges emerged in the second half of 2017, when he disappeared completely from Twitch, only to reemerge in the first month of 2018. When he made his comeback, Hershey admitted that he cheated on his wife, which obviously caused a great deal of personal problems. Since then, he promised to make amends and apparently kept his word.
The Dr DisRespect Twitch channel itself is built on the carefully cultivated image of a cocky streamer who always speaks his mind. Naturally, this proved to be a two edged sword, helping him make a name for himself, while turning a small chunk of the community against him. The natural comparisons to Tyler1 are quite often, although the vast majority of those who discuss the matter agree that he is just doing an excellent job at being in character.
Love him or hate him, Dr DisRespect is here to stay and it is most unlikely for his Twitch and YouTube channels to run out of content or followers anytime soon. Those who appreciate crude humour, over-the-top comments and stereotypical male gamer attitude will continue to support Dr DisRespect. As more people join the ranks of Twitch and YouTube followers, the Doc keeps setting new milestones and remains one of the most successful streamers of our time.
