Minecraft YouTuber Dream may have taken back his face reveal, but he’s not shying away from speaking his mind and being honest about his issues with the streaming community. He recently called out Adin Ross for holding Kick back.

Kick has been trying to create a rivalry with Twitch. The new platform has been touting around a 95/5 revenue split, which is quite generous compared to Twitch. It’s also known for having looser regulations than Twitch, but that hasn’t always been seen as a good thing by the streaming community. Still, it has enticed more controversial streamers like Adin Ross.

But now Dream is blaming Ross for holding Kick back from its full potential.

Why is Dream beefing with Adin Ross?

Dream recently co-starred in the BFFS podcast with Dave Portnoy, Josh Richards, and Bri Chickenfry. He was asked to “start, bench, and cut” and the choices were: Felix “xQc” Lengyel, Adin Ross, and Kai Cenat.

Dream immediately chose to cut Ross, stating: “This is gonna cause some beef. I’m starting xQc and benching Kai Cenat.”

Richards then asked Dream why he made this choice. It didn’t seem to take much thought on Dream’s part. The streamer said that he “didn’t even want to get into it” but added that he’s “the only reason right now why Kick isn’t kicking Twitch’s a—.”

It’s unclear exactly what he’s referencing, but Ross has been somewhat wreaking havoc on the site as of late. He recently showed porn to his followers and has been spreading rhetoric from shunned influencer and accused sex trafficker Andrew Tate. Then, Ross came under fire for telling streamer Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker to “kill himself.

While this has certainly created a negative image of Kick for many in the streaming community, others feel that Ross is bringing publicity to the platform, even if it’s bad.

Ross has yet to respond to Dream’s statement, but he most likely will have something to say.
