Ross called on Twitch to play his favorites just a few days ago.
Streamer Adin Ross has had a strange few months. In December last year, he announced that he would interview Kanye West, who clearly went deep with his comments. Then, earlier this month, he supported Andrew Tate, who was recently arrested in Romania on human trafficking charges. Now the streamer is kicked off Twitch, and the reason isn’t entirely clear.
As confirmed by StreamerBans on Twitter, Ross’s Twitch account was banned for the seventh time, however, no direct reason was given. Given the streamer’s recent history, the ban could have been put in place for a number of reasons. However, just a few days ago, Ross attacked Twitch for selectively supporting certain content creators while not supporting others like himself.
“Twitch never followed me, they don’t put me on the homepage. I swear they’re not following me,” Ross said in an episode of the Full Send podcast (thanks, Dexerto). “Why Kai, me, xQc, Speed, why aren’t we being offered multimillion dollar deals?” he continued. “But here’s what Twitch does with Kai: Twitch puts Kai on the homepage, they tweet him and follow him. It looks great, doesn’t it? Cool, this shows fake love, why didn’t he get a multi-million dollar deal?
While these comments directly attack Twitch and its business decisions, there is no evidence that they caused Ross to be banned. It may as well be a combination of causes or a completely separate incident taken together.
As for his interview with Kanye West, no date has been set yet, but it’s not hard to imagine what West will say. This is the same man that even Alex Ross found too extreme when he appeared as a guest on his podcast saying, “I see good things in Hitler. Every man has something of value to bring to the table, especially Hitler.”
Hopefully Ross’ ban means West has one less way to spit out his garbage. However, Ross is quite a big name for Twitch, and his previous bans have been overturned in the past.
