Former Overwatch pro Matthew ‘Dellor’ Vaughan came back from his Twitch ban at the end of May but did so without a sub button, and many other streamers have come to his defense and asked Twitch for clarification.

Dellor was originally suspended indefinitely from Twitch following controversial comments but later had it shortened to 30 days

However, when he came back to streaming, he found out he no longer had a sub button, meaning the number one source of income for him was nowhere to be seen, and he’s been looking for answers ever since.

Dellor - TwitchDellor came under fire for racist and sexist comments.

People are concerned

More than a month later, various personalities are speaking out for him after becoming concerned about his mental health. Dellor has still been streaming on Twitch since his unban, but fans have been noticing that something is off, and it led to TSM member Darryle ‘Hamlinz‘ Hamlin to speak out.


“Hey beautiful people at Twitch is there any way we can get a higher up to contact Dellor or I about his Partnership situation?” he asked. “I’m worried about him mentally and all he wants is clarification.”

In response to Hamlinz’s tweet, several other personalities showed concern for Dellor and wanted Twitch to give some sort of statement about why he no longer has his partnership.

“A simple response to let him know whether or not it’s possible for him to EARN his partnership back would really help his mental state,” said TSM member Maria ‘Chica’ Lopez. “Coming from a friend who is very concerned about his wellbeing. Some clarity would be greatly appreciated.”


“He’s a good kid, just needs some type of communication from the platform,” tweeted Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem. So far, Dellor has received a lot of support from fans and friends.

Dellor spoke out

Dellor spoke up about his mental health on Twitter just one week ago, letting viewers know he might be missing a few days of streaming.

“Might take some time off,” he said. “I still have no idea what my future is going to be and I’m going through a lot of shit that makes it really hard to focus on the stream. I don’t really know what I’m doing anymore, sorry guys.”


He continued, saying that he has been going to therapy and received a diagnosis.

“I have gone through a few therapy sessions now and have so far been diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety,” Dellor tweeted. “I am going to continue working with my doctor to figure everything out and to make changes. Thanks for the continued support, howards.”

With more than a month passing by without Twitch saying anything, Dellor felt like all hope was lost about an explanation.

However, given the reach Hamlinz’s tweet had, we might end up getting clarification after all.
