Why was Adin Ross banned?
The streaming community was stunned after they came to know that Adin was indefinitely banned from the platform. At the time, fans came up with several possible reasons for his suspension; however, one in particular was seen as the catalyst for his fifth ban.
The incident on April 12 could be considered the starting point of the controversy, when Adin allegedly used a homophobic slur while on a call with his friend and fellow content creator YourRAGE.
The clip of him saying the f-word went viral on the social media platform. YourRAGE replied to the allegations by stating that it was not Adin but someone else who was trying to impersonate him.
Nine days after the incident, Adin was indefintely banned from the platform and he provided an update by sharing the official email received from Twitch.
According to Twitch staff, the streamer was indefinitely suspended because he used hateful slurs and symbols and insulted another person with a hateful slur on stream. Adin deleted the tweet soon thereafter.
