What Is Dr DisRespect’s Real Name?
Dr DisRespect’s actual name is Herschel “Guy” Beahm IV.
The character Dr DisRespect emerged when he was playing Halo 2 on the Xbox. The console supported proximity voice chat where the players could interact with each other live and in real time. Since Beahm was extremely skilled at the game, he decided to take on a “dominant character”.
Hence, the name ‘Dr DisRespect’, as he was quite good at the trash talk and also had the skills to back all that talk up. In the end, it’s all in the spirit of the game and is only a character he is playing. In real life, there’s very little chance Beahm is anywhere close to the character he is so known for.
