Adin Ross, a controversial streamer, teases fans with cryptic tweets, but the meaning of the messages has some fans worried.

Following his widely publicized ban from Twitch earlier this year, controversial Twitch streamer Adin Ross has begun to provide updates on his suspension and future plans. The messages, which were shared on Twitter, shed light on why Ross has been so quiet recently.

Ross started streaming in 2018, and he quickly grew a following by playing games like NBA 2K and Grand Theft Auto 5. In 2020, he expanded his success by collaborating with stars like Lil Yachty and Tory Lanez, as well as diversifying into IRL streams.

Adin Ross also landed gambling sponsorships, reportedly earning 335 Ethereum per week, which was nearly $1 million at the time. According to leaked income reports, he may have made several million dollars per month at the height of his success.

The indefinite Twitch ban imposed on popular streamer Adin Ross appears to have put a stop to his streaming career. Though Twitch has not publicly stated the reason for the ban, an email Ross received from the company linked it to “hateful slurs or symbols.” It is widely assumed that the ban is connected to a streaming incident involving YourRAGE, in which Ross used a homophobic slur during a phone call.

Adin Ross has largely gone silent online since the ban, leaving his millions of followers in the dark. On his alternate Twitter account, AR15THEDEMON, he appears to be posting strange messages. Fans speculated that a return could be on the way after seeing a tweet that said “soon” with an arrow, though the tweet was later deleted. Ross then claimed he was “literally” unable to stream, describing the situation as one of the saddest times of his life. Ross then posted a photo of what appears to be a legal document.

Ross has been kicked off Twitch multiple times for various reasons. In 2021, he was temporarily banned for “nudity” while streaming Grand Theft Auto 5, in connection with NSFW roleplay in the game, prompting fans to create the #FreeAdin hashtag on Twitter. Ross received his fourth suspension from Twitch later that year after streaming while driving. The stunt was deemed dangerous, and Ross later apologized, saying he was “100% in the wrong.” It’s likely that these previous incidents influenced the decision to permanently ban his account.

Fans of Adin Ross will be hoping to see new content from him, but the latest messages cast doubt on how and when that will happen. Meanwhile, according to these tweets, the ban is having a negative impact on the popular streamer.
