Permanently banned Twitch streamer Adin Ross is in hot water after allegedly saying the 'N-word' on stream for a second time - and now vehemently
Permanently banned Twitch streamer Adin Ross is in hot water after allegedly saying the ‘N-word’ on stream for a second time – and now vehemently denying it.
The 22-year-old Andrew Tate supporter – whose meteoric, multimillion-dollar rise over the past few years has already been littered with controversy – is accused of uttering the slur Wednesday on his popular, eponymously named e-dating show.
Instead of Twitch – which decided to indefinitely pull Ross from its catalog of creators in February – the polarizing live streamer held court on competitor Kick, where he was joined by pornographic content creator Autumn Renae.
Renae, appearing remotely, played the role of Ross’s date, and at one point in the episode, does a 360-degree spin to give the streamer a better view of her assets.
In turn, Ross responds with his own quick rotation – followed by a brazen brag that many afterward alleged contained the slur. Within seconds, thousands looking on in the video’s chat pointed it out, spurring Ross to defend himself.

Adin Ross, 22, is in hot water after allegedly saying the ‘N-word’ on stream Wednesday. It comes months after the streamer – who has made more than $20million posting content to Twitch since the pandemic – was pulled from the platform in February over hateful content
The Andrew Tate supporter seemed to utter the slur Wednesday on his popular, eponymously named show, after doing a spin for pornographic content creator Autumn Renae. Once viewers pointed out the remark, he played back the clip in question in a bid to defend himself
The comment in question, which Ross is now denying, came after he adhered to Renae’s request to do a quick spin.
“N****, I got you. I got you,’ Ross seems to say in the clip, to the surprise of onlookers in the chat.
‘You know, I’m just wearing… I’m wearing some cool, chill s**t. Just, you know, just cool s**t,’ Ross goes on, describing his dressed-down attire of shorts and a T-shirt.
Despite causing an uproar in the chat, neither of the influencers seemed to take notice of the remark – which was delivered in an eerily similar manner to the first time the Florida native was caught saying the slur, back in November.
Since then – after Twitch took issue with the creator’s refusal to address hateful language from his fans on his videos’ chats – Ross has migrated to Kick, after building a more than $20million empire in the span of three years with the former.
Within weeks, before the dust created by his sensational nixing could even clear, another clip of Ross laughing as his friend repeatedly used the N-word went viral – spurring more criticism and questions concerning Ross’s racial beliefs.
The most recent instance, while still somewhat unconfirmed, is now resulting in more backlash – as well as fierce debate as to whether Ross actually uttered the divisive word, even if it was not meant to offend.
When confronted with his alleged comment by viewers on the chat, Ross claimed to not know what they were talking about – showing surprise and even laughing off the accusations.
‘Yo! They’re saying I said it, dude!’ he tells friend and fellow streamer Rangesh Mutama – better known as ‘N3on’ – before playing back the problematic snippet. ‘On TikTok!’ he elaborates.
Mutama responded by urging Ross to play back the clip that transpired minutes earlier – telling viewers that ‘he knows the way [Ross] talks’ and could thus tell if he ‘said the N-word.’
Ross then challenged those watching along to produce the segment that allegedly contained the slur, telling them: ‘Let me see the clip.’
Ross – who last year migrated to Kick after building a more than $20million empire in a matter of years on Twitch – has denied he said the slur, despite assertions from several of his fans
The remark – while not confirmed – was delivered in an eerily similar manner to the first time the Florida native was caught saying the slur back in November
Followers were quick to point out the apparent flub on social media, adding to backlash the streamer has already face for hateful content and slurs made on the air
