Adin Ross' minute-long Twitter clip began with him mentioning that IShowSpeed was the person who was told not to associate with him:
"(IShow)Speed, I know that you're going to see this s**t. I already know that you are. So, I'm going to say it to you. I love you, bro. Honestly, I was just upset. Someone corporate told you, 'Yo, don't talk to Adin.' You know what I'm saying? You reached out a couple days ago, I hadn't called you back. I'm going to call you back."
The former Twitch streamer then expressed his dissatisfaction with the YouTuber's manager:
"It doesnt matter... I don't know... I don't like your manager. I don't like him! Just don't like him, bro! I just don't like how... I just feel like, bro, like... you know, you should start bringing in (another person's name), bro. I really am. You know, I just want more publicly know, that like, it's my bad, bro. On everything."
Ross recalled how IShowSpeed was embroiled in controversies and claimed that he "always" had his back:
"But, like, when you were going through your s**t. When you kind of had stuff about people talking about you. Not f**king with you. I always had your back. And I don't want that from you! I don't want you to ever talk about that s**t. I don't! But I just want you to call me, instead of not talk to me. You know what I'm saying? Because I'm always here for you, bro."
The video concluded with Ross taking accountability when reacting to a list of popular streamers who had "switched up" on him:
"Yeah, it is my bad, that I brought in your name. I f**king reacted to that list, and be like, 'No comment.' Some dumb s**t that I shouldn't address that s**t. And I'm a man, I'm taking accountability. I'm sorry. I owe you guys some one-on-one phone calls. Everyone that I addressed."
