🦹 Bogus Copyright Strikes Again!

CREATOR NEWSLETTER


It looks like the edgelord supreme copystriked one of his collaborators, Call of Duty streamer Futives, who co-streamed gaming with Ross (with Ross getting his ass righteously handed to him in the game), robbing Futives of monetization on a video with 1-million-plus views.

In response to the madness, gamer Jake Lucky tweeted, “Gotta be the lowest thing I’ve seen in awhile… Lift the strike brother.” Hell yeah, brother. Agreed.

While the strike was removed by YouTube, this is just the latest in Adin Ross’s spree of low-blow false copystrikes—remember when he tried to make a claim against Hasan Piker for Hasan’s own content? (He also tried to take down someone he thought was Hasan’s main moderator, so it looks like someone might have a crush).

Sit down, let’s talk, Adin. We think you have a problem.
