The indefinitely-banned Twitch streamer Adin Ross has once again landed in hot waters for supposedly using a racial slur.

Adin Ross has been heard saying the N-word during his popular e-dating show while chatting with content creator Autumn Renae. But the streamer has denied saying the word, despite video evidence and his acquaintances confirming that he indeed said the slur.

Adin Ross’ streaming history isn’t squeaky clean by any stretch. But he’s still popular among a massive fanbase that followed him to Kick after his Twitch ban. Over at Kick, Adin Ross enjoys a decent following, despite the previous ban and Twitch controversies. But, just when everyone thought Adin had left the past in the past, the streamer is once again under the spotlight for all the wrong reasons. 

Did Adin Ross say the racial slur?

On May 24, Adin Ross’ e-dating clip went viral on social media in which he’s conversating with a model who asks him to give a 360-degree view of his clothes. Adin supposedly responded with a racial slur after doing a quick turn. Here’s what he can be heard saying in the video:

“N****, I got you. I got you. You know, I’m just wearing… I’m wearing some cool chill s**t. Just, you know, just cool s**t.”

However, Adin Ross claims he never said the racial slur, even after his friends attested to hearing the word. Instead, according to the streamer, he said, “And,” but fans are not buying it. At least most of them. 

After going viral, Adin rewatched the clip with Rangesh “N3on,” who confirmed the “raw” usage of the word. Kai Cenat, upon watching the video, had to rewind multiple times to catch the slur clearly. 

This isn’t the first time Adin has been accused of racism by the community. Previously, he got criticized for not reprimanding his friend for saying the racial slur, instead encouraging the behavior by keeping him on his livestream.
