Once again, Adin Ross has found himself in violation of Kick’s terms of service by live-streaming sexually explicit content to his viewers during his latest broadcast. Since moving to Kick after being permanently banned from Twitch, Ross has faced criticism from the streaming community for various controversies, including transphobic comments, encouraging harmful acts, and making offensive statements.
Even Kick’s CEO acknowledged in an interview that Ross poses a “brand risk” to the platform due to his behavior. Now, for the second time, he has breached the site’s terms of service by sharing sexual content during a regular variety stream on August 1. Ross visited the website Monkey.app while live-streaming, where sexually explicit content was visible to thousands of viewers.
Monkey.app operates similarly to Omegle, allowing users to video chat with random strangers. However, due to the anonymity and randomness, there is a risk of encountering individuals engaging in inappropriate behavior, such as unwarranted sexual acts on camera.
Despite the previous incident of accidentally showing sexually explicit content, Ross chose to remain on the platform. Shortly after, the same incident occurred again during the broadcast, leading to multiple violations of Kick’s terms of service.
The platform explicitly states that streamers must not engage in explicit content, including nudity or sexually suggestive material. The exact number of violations is unclear, but clips circulated by viewers suggest at least four instances of sexual content during Ross’ August 1 stream.
Although he eventually switched off from the site after multiple incidents, as of the time of writing, Ross has not faced suspension for the sexually explicit content on his stream, and some of the incidents remain visible on his channel.
