Adin Ross shares security footage contradicting claims of Twitch CEO following TwitchCon drama – After streamer Adin Ross was removed from TwitchCon, Clancy addressed the issue on his own Twitch stream. He claimed that the Kick streamers had been banned on Twitch prior to the event and used alternate accounts to obtain badges which was why they were removed.
Ross was among several content creators who attended TwitchCon wearing shirts promoting the rival platform, Kick. Clancy attributed their removal to prior Twitch bans and the fraudulent acquisition of event badges.

Adin Ross shares security footage contradicting claims of Twitch CEO following TwitchCon drama
Clancy, during his Twitch stream, emphasized that the removal was not related to the Kick shirts, stating, “It had nothing to do with their t-shirts. Actually, there were a lot of folks inside that had Kick t-shirts. It was because they fraudulently obtained the tickets.” He argued that the streamers’ prior Twitch bans led them to use false accounts to obtain event badges, which violated Twitch’s policies.
But Adin Ross shares footage from TwitchCon which appears to contradict this statement. Ross, who was one of the streamers who attended TwitchCon, dismissed Clancy’s claim of false accounts being the reason for their removal. Security footage from the incident supports this claim as one security personnel states the Kick shirts made the streamers ‘guilty by association’.
It’s just the shirt man,” said one of the security guards. “It’s guilty by association.”
The conflicting narratives have led to a divide among viewers and the online community. Some believe that the security footage presents a “bad look for Twitch,” indicating that the platform may have overreacted by removing streamers for wearing Kick shirts. In contrast, others have praised Twitch for taking action against what they perceive as promotional stunts by rival platform supporters.
While Clancy claims that the shirts were not to blame for the issues at TwitchCon, Ross tells a different story. Twitch and Clancy have not addressed the security guard footage since it was released.
