Adin Ross banned again as he was swatted in live stream
Adin Ross was just swatted out the front of his house, prompting him to cut short his programming while streaming on Twitch. Ross had over 200,000 peak watchers during the swatting while the feed was live.
Shortly after the incident, the star was banned from the platform, cutting off access to clips depicting the aftermath of the incident.
The rediscovered footage features a phone call between Ross and the offender, in which Ross is instructed to go outside and stand with his hands above his head.
Immediately after the incident, Adin Ross tweeted “I really got banned on twitch for being swatted,” but he swiftly removed the remark.
It is unknown exactly why Ross was banned, however it is assumed to be connected to the incident. For example, if a streamer looks to have lost control of their stream, Twitch may take action such as banning or suspending their account.
We shall temporarily deactivate the channel and any content associated with it if the user loses control of the broadcast due to significant injury, medical emergency, police action, or becoming the subject of serious violence.
Adin has had previous experience with swatting. Back in August, while Ross was finishing up a particularly lengthy webcast, he was swatted. His home was invaded by four armed police officers at once. About 10 minutes after he left, Adin returned to the screen to announce the end of the broadcast.
On top of these two occurrences, Adin swatted in July 2021 during a fan convention.
