Streamer Herschel Beahm IV, better known as Dr Disrespect on YouTube and social media, shared his intentions to create an AAA video game studio last year. Said and done, at the end of 2021 he announced Midnight Society, a development company that has the presence of ex-creatives from Halo y Call of Duty. However, it seems that all is not going well behind the scenes.
This week, Ryan “Lorumerth” Mitchell, a digital marketer, uploaded a short video to his YouTube channel revealing that he left the controversial streamer’s studio on May 13. Unfortunately, the motives behind his decision are murky. and shed light on possible toxic leadership.
“No job is worth my mental health”, Ryan Mitchell talks about his experience at Midnight Society
In his video, the former employee indicated that he left a stable job as a marketing director to join Dr Disrespect’s company, seeing an opportunity to grow professionally while using his creativity to inspire his teammates.
Unfortunately, alleged toxic and abusive behavior from a Midnight Society leadership member turned Ryan Mitchell’s dream job into a real nightmare, according to reports.
The creative wanted to be very clear with his remarks and pointed out that this toxic person is not Dr Disrespect, since he confirms that his interactions with him were positive and even confesses that the presence of the streamer is what gives him hope that the study will be successful. On the other hand, he was quick to point out that the development team was “amazing.”
So it seems that the toxic environment falls on one person. The marketer did not reveal the identity of the member allegedly engaging in problematic behaviors, but said the attacks began shortly before the studio’s NFTs were released. Unfortunately, the situation worsened over time.
“There was some toxicity from a member of the company’s management. This was not a passive aggression, it was directly yelling and intimidation (…) How do you think a team can be creative when you are busy trying to tiptoe around said person? ”, He pointed out.

“I don’t regret that I joined [a Midnight Societyl]but I’m also absolutely certain that I don’t regret leaving, because no job is worth my sanity, even your dream job,” Mitchell said.
