Popular Twitch.tv streamer DrDisRespect has been temporarily banned from PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds for intentionally team-killing a member of his squad.
While the friendly fire incident was blatant it was done with entertainment in mind rather than malice, being the sort of behaviour the DrDisRespect character is known for. Bluehole Studios, the team behind Battlegrounds, have decided to take a zero tolerance approach to team-killing even if it involves a well known player.

DrDisRespect and Brendan “PLAYERUNKNOWN” Greene had an exchange via Twitter after the banning that was largely cordial, but re-emphasised the point that the code of conduct forbids this kind of behaviour, and as a result the ban remains in place.
