There are a lot of wonderful things for content creators to share with their fans at E3 2019, but the men’s bathroom definitely isn’t one of them. Popular Twitch.tv streamer, Guy “Dr Disrespect” Beahm, has gotten himself into trouble after streaming his visits to the men’s bathroom live to viewers on his channel.
Twitch’s terms of service has a clause that forbids the uploading and creation of content that is “invasive of privacy or publicity rights” and doing live streaming from a public bathroom with other attendees inside that clearly have not agreed to this definitely fall under a violation of the terms of service agreement.
According to reports, Dr Disrespect filmed his visit to the bathrooms at E3 and shouted “Bodyguard” with several thousand people watching on the stream. The stream included many E3 attendees using the urinals in the bathroom, including a child. Then, Dr Disrespect went into a bathroom stall locking himself inside. Further, he re-entered the bathroom two more times and even used the urinal himself while his cameraman was standing behind him filming it all.
Update: A representative of E3 Expo has told Kotaku that it has revoked Dr Disrespect’s badge after a stunt in which he livestreamed from a public bathroom inside the show. https://t.co/qHnyRRuQH0
