Dr Disrespect being in a tough spot in his marriage
While most of his controversies may have been related to streaming/gaming, one such controversy was very personal.

Streaming from a bathroom stall in E3 2019
The hustle to produce entertaining content on a constant basis can lead you to do outlandish things. E3 2019 saw one of the most bizarre streams that the world had ever seen. Doc went and streamed from a public bathroom without giving a second thought about the repercussions it would have. Clearly, things went way out of control.
While people flocked to see his ‘hilarious’ stream, little did they know that he or anyone wasn’t really allowed to do that. Apparently, he violated Twitch Community Guidelines and the California State Penal Code 647 Section J which stated that taking a camera into the bathroom was an invasion of privacy. As a result of his antics, he was banned from Twitch for a short while and was also barred from attending E3.

Dr Disrespect allegedly made a racist remark claimed an American actor
The noble pursuit of good comedic content can often lead people to step over a line that can make things sour. Doc saw himself getting wound up in a similar situation, where an American actor, Jimmy Wong, accused him of being racist. This controversy took place in 2018 when PUBG wasn’t regarded as a dead game, but instead, it was in its best days.
Players with Chinese names were allegedly infamous for cheating, which downplayed everyone’s experience. Doc being himself went on a controversial rant, that saw him mocking their accent. This did not sit well with the American actor, who accused of being a racist and also remarked the entire gaming community of displaying similar behavior.
The streamer chucked Wong’s comments aside and paid no heed to the ongoing chatter against him. This was the extent of the controversy, while Wong has now deleted the tweet from his account. However, it does seem like the streamer indeed crossed some lines, but his frustration with the frequent cheaters was the true cause of this rant.

Everything that he did and the massive community he had built was just gone. He was forced to once again start afresh, but he did not know where he would go next. The 39-year-old streamer offered his reaction on Twitter and stated that even he hasn’t been notified of the same.
