In a since-deleted tweet, Ross wrote: "I got banned on Twitch, indefinitely."

He continued: "I am not sure what I said though? I'm not sure what I did? It occurred on stream or VOD? I don't know man."

His first ban came just a little over one year ago, in April 2021.

Ross was streaming alongside his friend and fellow YouTuber, Zias.

While on video, Zias took a phone call and proceeded to call Ross a "f****t".

Zias used the homophobic slur while still under the watchful eye of thousands of Twitch viewers.

Ross was banned from Twitch shortly thereafter.

In response, his fanbase kickstarted a #FreeAdin hashtag on Twitter.

He was again briefly banned in July of the same year, after driving and streaming on his phone, which is illegal in California.
