The sudden move also came months after Beahm is believed to have signed a multi-million-dollar business agreement with Twitch to stream exclusively on the site.
The Dr Disrespect character shot to fame early on the Twitch platform, known for his mullet, moustache, sunglasses and abrasive personality.
Beahm also used the Dr Disrespect Twitter account to address his followers, known among themselves as the “Champions Club”, and to say he had also not been given a reason for the move.
“Twitch has not notified me on the specific reason behind their decision,” he said at the weekend.
Twitch is a video game live streaming service first created in 2011 that now broadcasts creators playing different products and taking part in globally famous eSports competitions for hundreds of millions of viewers each month.
The platform was bought out in 2014 by consumer giant Amazon for US $970 million ($1.4b) and by May 2018, had 2.2 million broadcasters monthly and 15 million daily active users.
Who has Twitch made famous?
The streaming platform has helped dozens of influential video gamers generate worldwide audiences comprised of tens of millions of viewers.
While the Dr Disrespect character is among the 10 most popular streamers on Twitch, the site is also known for rising gamers such as Tfue and Ninja to instant fame.
Tfue, who is one of the world’s most famous ‘Fortnite’ streamers has grown a fanbase of more than seven million online after also having won more than US$500m ($721m) on the game in eSports competitions.
Meanwhile Ninja was arguably the platform’s most famous streamer with over 14 million viewers, until August last year when he announced a groundbreaking deal with Microsoft’s Mixer platform to exclusively game with them.
Despite that, the relationship has since broken down after Mixer announced to all of its users and creators it would no longer be a service due to a buy-out by Facebook gaming.
