Who is Adin Ross and why was he banned from Twitch?

TWITCH streamer Adin Ross has enjoyed huge success in recent years, even securing a quick chat with Basketball titan Lebron James after playing NBA 2K with his son Bronny.

However, his rise to Twitch fame has been halted in its tracks after his account was banned for the actions of a guest who joined him for a stream in the just chatting section.

Who is Adin Ross?

Originally, Adin Ross was an NBA 2K streamer, who would often play in the game's MyPark section for an audience of on average no more than few thousand viewers at any one time.

Nowadays, following his high profile interaction with Basketball's biggest name in LeBron James, Adin can be found in the Just Chatting section where he interacts with as many as 40,000 live viewers.

Adin has also recently become a rising name on the YouTube scene, with his channel surpassing the 100,000 subscriber mark.

Why has Adin Ross been banned from Twitch?

On April 10, Adin was streaming alongside friend and fellow YouTuber Zias, but there were times throughout the stream Adin had got up and was outof camera shot.

In one of these intervals, Zias took a phone call and proceeded to call Adin some homophobic slurs, all while still under the watchful eye of thousands of Twitch viewers.

As a response, Adin immediately contacted Twitch to find out if he’d get banned and though the streaming company had informed him that he would be fine, given it was Zias who said it, he was banned anyway. 

Adin took to social media to express his disappointment at the decision: "Just got banned on Twitch. Wtf bro." In response, his fanbase kickstarted a '#FreeAdin' hashtag which the streamer himself supported, tweeting: "Free Adin #freeadin. Mfs don’t wanna see me win. All G tho… let’s hope it’s not a perm."

Given this was Adin's first Twitch stream ban in a year, it is most likely that he will be slapped with a 24-hour ban or a 3-day ban rather than an out-and-out permanent ban.

Who is Adin Ross dating?

Rumors of Adin Ross and Corinna Kopf potentially being an item have been rife since the pair kissed while on a livestream.

However, Ross, in a more recent stream earlier this year, decided to search"Adin Ross current girlfriend” on Google following the rumours and was left annoyed with the results.

He said: "I am not dating Corinna bro! She’s just really my really good friend, bro! The internet is just weird bro."
