The streaming community is shocked that Jewish streamer Adin Ross has announced that he will be interviewing Kanye West, now known as Ye. But Felix “xQc” Lengyel has warned Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker to avoid talking about the situation.
Kanye has been a huge talking point in the streaming world, especially with political content creators, for his ongoing antisemitic and pro-Nazi rhetoric. This includes a recent appearance on Alex Jones’ Info Wars where he openly supported Hitler. Despite being banned on various social media platforms, there are some streamers who want the controversial rapper on their broadcast for one reason or another, including Adin Ross.
Adin Ross, while not religious, is Jewish and even went to Hebrew school. This has made some people confused as to why he would want to interact with Kanye, especially when he isn’t known for taking part in political discussions. As the tension around the upcoming interview has continued to rise, xQc has warned some content creators to avoid discussing it.
xQc warns HasanAbi ahead of Adin Ross’ Kanye interview
As Kanye has continued to have a platform for his hate speech, HasanAbi has been vocal about his views on the current situation. He has been taking shots at Elon Musk and other conservative figures. But xQc has now warned him to back off.
During a recent broadcast, xQc decided to issue a warning to “my boy” Hasan. He said he knows the political streamer can “take some heat” but that a discussion with Kanye West would be an entirely different “ballgame,” saying he shouldn’t get in the middle.
“If you try to moderate and be a part of the conversation, people will say ‘L guy,’ ‘sleeper guy,’ ‘annoying guy.’ They’re gonna start sending the hate hate to where it becomes absolutely unbearable,” xQc warned.
The former Overwatch League pro explained that many people see Kanye and Adin Ross as “idols” because of the content they create and “don’t give a f— about anything else.” To xQc, there would be no point getting involved with people who aren’t going to change their views.
When is Adin Ross interviewing Kanye?
The date of the stream is currently unknown.
At first, it was believed that the stream would be happening this week, but the two public figures have not agreed on a date just yet. It’s still said to be happening in the next few weeks. Nothing more specific has been revealed so far.
