Being controversial online has always been a lucrative way to brand yourself, and Adin Ross is taking it to a new level.

Ross has had one hell of a controversial transformation. Once one of Twitch’s fastest-rising streamers, he amassed over 7 million followers on the platform and streamed with some of the biggest rappers in the game, including Lil Yachty and Tory Lanez.

But after getting permanently banned from Twitch for what the platform called “unmoderated hateful conduct” in early March, his desire to consistently push the “edgy” envelope with misogyny and transphobia and his obsession with the ideology of Andrew Tate caused his star to plummet. De-platformed and without Twitch’s terms of service to abide by, Ross seems to be going even more extreme with his stunts and antics.
