Twitch streamers Adin Ross and Kai Cenat have come under fire lately after their latest Twitch stream. In a stream uploaded to Kai’s channel yesterday, the duo was seen interacting with a couple of women on Discord. This isn’t the first time the pair have teamed up for an e-date stream.
However, the latter seems to have caused a lot of scrutiny towards Adin Ross and Kai Cenat. While they were short of the conversation, both Kai and Adin seemed to make casual remarks about the woman in question being a man or a transgender due to their height and deep voice.
The funny comment was later clipped and shared on the popular subreddit r/LivestreamFail which revealed a number of critical comments. One Redditor responded saying:
Reddit scrutinizes Kai Cenat and Adin Ross for their ‘transphobic’ jokes
Fans have taken to Reddit to share their opinions on the latest stream. In comments shared under the post, many stated that Adin tends to make ignorant remarks. One particular moment that received the most criticism was when the two women were briefly removed from the conversation. At this point, both Kai Cenat and Adin Ross seem to have mocked the woman’s seemingly masculine features.
After being re-added to the conversation, the duo also mockingly satirized their name. The subject revealed their name to be Johnnakai – to which both streamers began to pretend they had misheard the name, followed by uttering a series of masculine names such as “John and Kai,” “Johnathan,” and “John Cena.”
As mentioned earlier, the streaming community did not take the whole interaction to their liking. Here are some of the notable reactions shared regarding the e-date:
One user pointed out that Adin has a history of being “transphobic.” They said:
Another user also pointed out that Adin repeatedly used the pronoun “him” without knowing their identity. In addition, the user also believes that neither streamer will be reprimanded for their ignorant comments due to their large fan base:
Although one Redditor tried to justify Adin’s stance, they were quickly shut down by the responses:
This user also brought up the “W community.” For those unaware, the W community is usually associated with streamers known for their exuberant, over-the-top reactions and loud streams combined with lots of music and dancing. Kai Cenat is often considered to be part of society. They said:
Despite a long list of critical comments, the Reddit post has yet to catch the attention of either of the two streamers involved. It remains to be seen whether they will share their reactions.
