In the tweet, Ross claims he was “at a red light” when he used his phone, however certain replies which include clips of the stream seem to show him repeatedly checking his phone while the car moves.
Following up with a stream on Instagram Live, Ross repeats that he is “really sorry” and admits that the ban is “100% my fault, it’s literally nobody else’s fault but me – it’s actually my fault.”

On the Twitch community guidelines, it’s stated that streamers “must respect all applicable local, national, and international laws while using our service” and warns that “any content or activity featuring, encouraging, offering or soliciting illegal activity is prohibited.”
As Dot Esports notes, Ross isn’t the first streamer to receive a ban for phone use while driving – fellow Twitch streamer Jake “Jake’n’Bake” Abramson received a seven-day ban back in March for acting similarly.
Abramson tweeted about the situation before Ross received his ban, voicing that although it was “not anything personal towards the streamer involved”, he wanted to point out “inconsistencies on Twitch in regards to moderation”.
Dexerto reports that this suspension is the fourth time Ross has been banned, with previous offences including nudity and homophobic remarks.
In other news, another banned Twitch streamer – Jenelle “Indiefoxx” Dagres – has decided to sell her previous Twitch clips as NFT videos in an effort to make money. On the same day that her first clips were listed for sale, she announced that every single one had already sold out.
