Career and personal life
Beahm's first video was posted on January 11, 2010, showing gameplay of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. He was featured in multiple videos for the gaming channel Machinima, mostly playing Call of Duty. Beahm went inactive from YouTube in late 2011 and did not release any content for nearly five years.
On March 16, 2011, Beahm was appointed as the community manager of Sledgehammer Games. He was promoted to level designer and helped create many of the multiplayer maps for Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare.
In December 2017, he took a two-month hiatus from streaming to tend to his relationship with his wife, after having admitted to being unfaithful to her. Beahm and his wife have a daughter. He returned on February 5, 2018, with a total peak of 388,000 concurrent viewers, just shy of beating tyler1's record of 410,000. His popularity has led to sponsorship deals with Gillette, ASUS, Razer and G Fuel.
On June 11, 2019, Beahm's Dr DisRespect channel was suspended as he was IRL streaming ("in real life") while attending the 2019 edition of the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3) in Los Angeles, California. Beahm's cameraman followed him into a public restroom (he re-entered the bathroom on two different occasions, with filming still going on) at the venue in violation of Twitch's privacy rules and privacy laws in the California Penal Code. In addition, E3 organizer Entertainment Software Association revoked Beahm's E3 pass, banning him from the event. Twitch reinstated the Dr DisRespect channel on June 25.
Beahm is not characterized as a professional gamer but regarded as an entertainer in the streaming industry. He has been described by ESPN as "a WWE character in the competitive gaming world", and has himself said "I created a character who plays multiplayer video games, and he's considered the most dominating gaming specimen." Beahm is 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) tall.
When playing as the Dr DisRespect character, Beahm wears a black mullet wig, sunglasses, a red or black long-sleeved athletic moisture-wicking shirt, and a red or black tactical vest. One of his most notable catchphrases is "I'm on top of the mountain, and I'm only halfway up!", and his motto is "Violence. Speed. Momentum". He sports a mustache he has named "Slick Daddy" aka "The Poisonous Ethiopian Caterpillar".
