Dr. Disrespect has revealed why he was banned Call of Duty: War Zone 2. Dr Disrespect is one of the biggest content creators on the internet, thanks in large part to his huge personality. He has garnered a huge audience over many years thanks to impersonating a highly energetic gamer with the appearance of a cheesy 80s action movie character. He is incredibly attuned to his audience and has many other major creators on his streams, but he is also a figure of controversy. He was banned from Twitch for unknown reasons after being the site’s poster child for quite some time. Now he’s on YouTube where he causes much less controversy but still gets into trouble in other ways.
During a recent stream, DrDisrespect revealed that one of his accounts in Call of Duty: War Zone 2 was banned for a week for abusing proximity chat. A chatter suggested it was due to spam, but he noted that it was actually to say “pu**y” during a heated battle. Doc, of course, wasn’t too thrilled about this, noting that he’s seen much worse in the game. Many have praised the addition of proximity chat Call of Duty: War Zone 2, but it does seem to cause some problems. There’s already a degree of toxicity in Call of Duty and it’s been increased a bit with this new feature. However, it is also an M-rated game and swearing is to be expected from the players.

DrDisrespect has other accounts so it’s not very disruptive to his ability to play the game, but his stats and loadouts don’t carry over. Doc noted that he’s going to take it easy with this new account, probably waiting for the ban to resolve itself on his regular profile. Call of Duty has been cracking down on toxicity in its games in recent years, for better or for worse, so this could be something that happens somewhat regularly in the future.
Do you think DrDisrespect’s ban was justified? Let me know in the comments or give me a call Twitter @Cade_Onder.
