Dr Disrespect’s Call of Duty account suspended after being disrespectful in proxy chat

Popular streamer Guy “Dr Disrespect” Breahm, who has largely built his brand on playing and trashing Call of Duty in equal measure, has had his CoD account suspended for a week after being disrespectful in proximity chat. His association with the series is not limited to streaming, but includes a stint at Sledgehammer Games in the early 2010s, where he worked as a level designer on Advanced Warfare. As any viewer of his streams may know, Dr Disrespect is perhaps the ultimate example of bro culture: profanity and trash talking are a big part of his brand and appeal.

Which, of course, isn’t a license to act however you want, although the streamer gives an “I’m not bothered” retelling that makes it clear he’s probably pretty bothered: the suspension was apparently for calling one or more players a ” pussy” “. An insulting term and a misogynistic word at that, though it also feels like a tough thing to get banned for, even if it’s against Call of Duty’s new code of conduct which explicitly targets “derogatory comments based on […] gender identity”. Players must now accept this document before playing any of the games.

“I should probably relax on this account champs,” says Dr Disrespect while playing Warzone 2. “I mean the proximity chat. This isn’t even my account. They banned the other one for seven days for using proximity chat. Believe it or not champs .”
