Dr Disrespect (real name – Guy Beahm), self-proclaimed “Face of Twitch,” is an American gamer who is known to his fans for his signature look, that includes a mustache, mullet, and sunglasses.

Beahm has been described by ESPN as “a WWE character in the competitive gaming world.”
He was born on March 10, 1982. In 2005, Guy graduated from California State Polytechnic University-Pomona, where he played Division II NCAA basketball.

Beahm was promoted to level designer and helped create many of the multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare (a first-person shooter video game published by Activision). As a multiplayer map designer, Guy worked on maps, like:
Guy began posting content to YouTube on January 5, 2010. He initially started uploading highlights of his Call of Duty Black Ops games. After, he started uploading videos with Modern Warfare 3.
He went inactive from YouTube in late 2011 (one of the developers of Call of Duty hired him as the community manager in that year) and did not release any content for almost 5 years.
His Twitch channel started on March 21, 2016, where he is known for streaming H1Z1 (a free-to-play battle royale game developed by NantG and published by Daybreak Game Company).

At the end of the TwitchCon 2017 in Long Beach, California, Guy was asked what was next for him during that day. He replied:
“I’m getting in the Lamborghini Diablo VT parked outside of the convention, right, and when I get in it, do you think I’m going to the hotel? Wrong.”
Beahm later added:
”I’m going to the nearest steak house where I’m going to order a $110 steak, I’m going to get full protein’d up, because guess what, the night has just begun.”
On February 18, 2019, Gordon Hayward (an American professional basketball player for the Boston Celtics of the NBA) joined Beahm on his Twitch stream.
Guy is 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) tall.
In December 2017, after having admitted to being unfaithful to his wife, Beahm took a two months break from streaming to tend to his relationship with her. He declared:
”I have a beautiful family, and a wife, and kid. And I want to be transparent that I’ve been unfaithful. And I’m probably going to take some time off to focus on.. stupid fucking mistakes, man. I’m going to take off to focus on my family.”
”And so, I just wanted to let you guys know that. I apologize to you guys, and my sponsors, and Twitch. This is not who I am, this is not what I represent. That’s it.”
A Chinese company (named – NetEase) that was sponsoring an upcoming event Guy was going to participate in has come out to make a statement regarding his involvement.
“After recent events, Dr Disrespect and NetEase have mutually agreed that he will not be taking part in the Rules of Surivival ‘Hunt the Streamer’ event on the 17th with 29 other streamers at DrDirespect’s request.”
The company later added:
”With DrDisrespect’s absence, his time-slot during the event will be replaced by a streamer soon-to-be announced. Any questions can be directed to us if any outlets have any questions about the event.”
On February 5, 2018, Guy returned with a total peak of 388,000 concurrent viewers. During an interview, Beahm quoted:
“My wife and I were literally on the verge of separation, possibly divorce. I would’ve been destroyed emotionally if it went this far. We both knew that if the Doc came back, she would have to be fully involved in the business.”
”That was one of my biggest mistakes, not having her involved from the beginning…I’m hoping our working relationship will strengthen our personal relationship. I’m extremely lucky and happy to have her by my side still.”
The couple has a daughter – Alana.
On September 11, 2018, Beahm was live streaming Call of Duty: BlackOut. While playing it, an unknown person shot at his house and hit an upstairs window. This was reportedly the 2nd time that someone shot at his house.
Guy was a former member of OpTic, and was a 2x champion in the 1993 and 1994 gaming championship of NBA2K within the “Online Gaming Community.” This is the reason why “2xchampion” is his Fortnite user name.
