"This is so stupid": Fans react with #FreeAdin as Adin Ross banned on Twitch post GTA roleplay fiasco

Adin Ross's recent Twitch ban is most likely due to the sexually suggestive nature of one particular incident which took place during his latest stream.

Moments after getting banned on Twitch, the broadcaster took to social media to host a live stream in which he shared his thoughts on the ban.

He also stated that although he hasn't received an official email yet, he expects his ban to last a day:

"This is so stupid. Go tweet out #FreeAdin, yo. I haven't got any email yet, but supposedly it's a day. Nah, it's not a perm. I'm not worried. It's cool. Tomorrow I'll figure some s**t out. Just get it trending on Twitter, and that'll be fire. It's all good, guys. We'll be back."

"I got banned cause of GTA, cause of the s*x scene, that's why I got banned. F****g Twitch, guess what, guys, you could be in a hot tub like 75% naked, but you can't... it's just so stupid."

In light of Twitch's controversial decision to ban Adin Ross, social media was soon abuzz with a slew of reactions, most of which revolved around the #FreeAdin hashtag.

Leading from the front was YouTuber Mike Majlak, who joined fans in claiming that Adin did nothing wrong:

With fans enthusiastically fulfilling his wish to get the hashtag #FreeAdin trending, it now remains to be seen what the length of his third ban turns out to be, as Twitch policy continues to baffle and frustrate viewers in equal measure.
