Various online sources cite the famous internet personality’s net worth as US$7 million. However, you’ll also find just as many reputable sites claiming that Dr. Disrespect’s net worth is “only” US$4.5 million.
So what is Dr. Disrespect worth? Only Dr. Disrespect and his accountant are privy to the exact number, so the safest bet is to estimate his net worth range as in between the two numbers.
Dr. Disrespect Net Worth: Known for Scandals
As you’ll read below, the polarizing internet personality (real name Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV) is no stranger to scandals.

After the Twitch ban scandal in June 2020, Beahm took a hiatus from streaming but returned in early August. More than 500,000 followers tuned in to attend the internet personality’s comeback stream, this time on YouTube.
More than 500 videos are on Beahm’s channel, most attracting 500,000 views on average and several clocking 1.5 million+. Thanks to more than 4.23 million subscribers, the streamer/gamer makes close to $2,000 daily from the popular video platform.
If we include the ad revenue, he can earn somewhere between $50,000 and $100,000 every month. However, the gaming community sees him more as an entertainer, than a professional player. Overall, YouTube is a fruitful platform in terms of Dr. Disrespect net worth.

The reason behind Beahm’s Twitch ban remains undisclosed, but rumors indicate there was a clash between the streamer and platform due to finances. Regardless, the ban caused a significant dent in Dr. Disrespect net worth.
Before his permanent ban, Beahm numbered more than 30,000 paid subscribers on the streaming platform. Thanks to these subscribers, the streamer raked in US$30,000 – $35,000 each month, on average, or approximately $300,000 per year.
Additional revenue sources such as Twitch donations and advertisements, the estimated Twitch streaming income for the internet personality likely measured more than $500,000 yearly. He streamed mostly battle royale games (Apex Legends, Fortnite, Call of Duty, and several others), but the ban didn’t stop him from doing what he loves.
Why did Twitch Ban Dr. Disrespect?
The real reason is unfortunately still unknown, even two years later. Guy doesn’t talk about it, he allegedly wasn’t informed by the platform for a long time. But most of his fans assume that he knew what the problem was, he just wasn’t allowed to speak up until the whole situation unravels. He sued Twitch in August of 2021, and nothing special happened. Neither of the sides admitted the wrongdoing. But we still don’t have the answer to why there will never be Dr. Disrespect on Twitch again.
Too Big of a Salary?
One of the theories is that Twitch banned him in order to afford some new faces and fill his place – because Dr. made too much money. In a stream on YouTube, when a person who’s in the Navy donated, Dr. Disrespectful said: “Master Chief Navy, here says Rich Miller. Hey Rich! Imagine the Navy going in there and getting rid of you, huh. Just out of nowhere. And then bringing in three new cadets. Because you know what, they said man, even though he’s going to turn Master Chief, that’s a big huge salary. Imagine that Rich. But thankfully that doesn’t happen to you.” Not long after banning him, Twitch signed Ninja, Shroud, and Logic – the “three cadets”.
Maybe one day we’ll find out if this was the reason!
