Dr Disrespect was banned on Twitch due to stream from E3 bathroom ⚡⚡⚡ Esports and gaming news, analytics, reviews on WePlay! The latest news on WePlay!

The famous streamer Herschel "Dr Disrespect" Beahm was banned again on Twitch. You can see only the message that the content is currently unavailable on his channel at the moment.

An incident at E3 venue's bathroom in Los Angeles caused the ban. Dr Disrespect held a live stream of his walk through the conference, while going to the bathroom, and the film crew followed him. Unfortunately, such actions may be considered as breaking the California law.

According to California Penal Code Section 647(j 3 A):

"[...] every person who commits any of the following acts is guilty of disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor:

A person who uses a concealed camcorder, motion picture camera, or photographic camera of any type, to secretly videotape, film, photograph, or record by electronic means, another identifiable person who may be in a state of full or partial undress, for the purpose of viewing the body of, or the undergarments worn by, that other person, without the consent or knowledge of that other person, in the interior of a bedroom, bathroom, changing room, fitting room, dressing room, or tanning booth, or the interior of any other area in which that other person has a reasonable expectation of privacy, with the intent to invade the privacy of that other person."

Punishment may not follow if the person didn't have a specific intention to interfere in someone's personal life, but there is one "but": the law prohibits the exchange of content that violates the confidentiality of such premises. Dr Disrespect stream "suits" the law.

Twitch is very sensitive to violations of the laws or moral principles of the platform, so access to the channel was blocked. Moreover, the entrance to E3 2019 for Hershel was cancelled too.

The streamer hasn't yet commented on this situation.
