Ross called out Twitch for playing favorites just days ago.
Streamer Adin Ross has had a weird few months. In December last year, he announced he would be interviewing Kanye West, who clearly stood out with his comments. Then, earlier this month, he supported Andrew Tate, who was recently arrested in Romania for human trafficking. Now the streamer finds himself banned from Twitch, and the reason is not entirely clear.
As confirmed by StreamerBans on Twitter, Ross’ Twitch account was banned for the seventh time, however, no direct reason was provided. Considering the streamer’s recent history, the ban could have been put in place for any number of reasons. However, just a few days ago, Ross attacked Twitch for selectively supporting certain content creators, while failing to support others, like himself.
“Twitch never followed me, they don’t put me on the homepage. Swear, they don’t follow me,” Ross said in an episode of the Full Send podcast (thanks, Dexerto). “Why Kai, myself, xQc, Speed, why aren’t we being offered multi-million dollar deals?” he continued. “But here’s what Twitch does with Kai: Twitch puts Kai on the homepage, they tweet and follow him. Sounds awesome, right? Cool, it’s showing fake love, why doesn’t it get not a multi-million dollar contract?
While these comments directly attack Twitch and its business decisions, it is by no means confirmed that they were the ones who got Ross banned. It could very well be a combination of reasons or an entirely separate incident.
As for his interview with Kanye West, no date has yet been set, but it’s not hard to imagine what West will have to say about it. He’s the same man that even Alex Ross found a bit too extreme when he appeared as a guest on his podcast, saying, “I see good things about Hitler. Every human being has something of value that they brought to the table, especially Hitler.
Hopefully banning Ross means there’s one less way for West to spit out his trash. However, Ross is a pretty big name for Twitch, and his previous bans have been overturned in the past.
