On January 11, 2010, Herschel posted his first video, which featured Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 gameplay. He played Call of Duty a lot in the videos he appeared in for the gaming channel Machinima. Late in 2011, Beahm stopped uploading to YouTube, and he ceased all content production for almost five years.
Beahm typically presents a ruthless, witty, and bombastic on-stream persona. In the streaming community, he is frequently seen as an entertainer rather than a “professional gamer.” He is referred to by ESPN as “a WWE character in the world of competitive gaming.”
“Dr DisRespect Gaming: The Docs Very 1st Video” is the title of Dr Disrespect’s first video on YouTube; this video features him playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
Herschel was hired by Sledgehammer Games to serve as the community manager on March 16, 2011. He received a promotion to level designer and contributed to the creation of many Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare multiplayer maps. While employed by Sledgehammer, Beahm joined Justin.tv (now Twitch). In order to concentrate on a streaming career full-time, he left Sledgehammer in 2015.
Herschel announced in December 2021 the opening of Midnight Society, a “AAA” gaming studio that he will run, with Call of Duty and Halo veterans Robert Bowling and Quinn DelHoyo, as well as Sumit Gupta serving as CEO. The studio will prioritize online player-versus-player multiplayer games and focus on creating a “day-zero” community experience where players will have the power to choose the games’ “feature prioritization, pivotal design decisions, and fuel innovation in the shooter genre.”
The DrDisRespect Twitch account was suspended from Twitch on June 26, 2020. No specifics have been made public. Herschel tweeted on June 27 that he was still unsure of the ban’s precise explanation. In an interview with PC Gamer and The Washington Post on July 16, 20 days after being banned, he broke his silence and stated that he still does not know why Twitch banned him from the platform, that his contracts were still in effect, disproved any “crazy speculation” or theory that had emerged, and was instead concentrating on his upcoming “Doc 3.0” persona.
As of June 2022, Dr DisRespect is worth $8 million according to various sources. His game streams, streaming donations, subscriptions, advertisements, merchandise sales, and sponsorship agreements all contribute to Dr. DisRespect's wealth. Dr. Disrespect makes about $2000 from his daily streams.
Herschel completed his basketball career at California State Polytechnic University, Pomona, where he competed in NCAA Division II in 2005. After admitting to cheating on his wife, he took a two-month break from streaming in December 2017 to focus on their relationship. Alana Beahm, daughter of Herschel and his wife, is also called Baby Disrespect.
In a collection of videos, musician Jimmy Wong accuses Herschel of racism for making fun of Chinese accents and language. Herschel responded by apologizing, calling the criticism "laughable," but asserting that some of his very close friends are Asian, and he wouldn't do anything to disparage their culture.
