Adin Ross Gets "Swatted" Multiple Times, LAPD Responds


Popular YouTuber and streamer Adin Ross got "swatted" multiple times recently, so much so that the LAPD responded. For those of you who don't know, "swatting" refers to the practice of calling the police about a shooting or high-risk event that would prompt a SWAT team or law enforcement to arrive at a property. What makes these calls "swatting" is that they are completely false and only done to prank a content creator or celebrity. For example, Lil Wayne woke up one night to find police in his Miami mansion due to a false call.

In fact, this situation became so frequent for Ross that officials told TMZ they'd change responses to calls regarding him. Before sending patrol cars and helicopters, police will contact his security team first. Hopefully a revised confirmation method will result in the content creator being more at peace. However, following a Twitch streaming ban and multiple public controversies, that peace seems harder to find than ever. One instance of his reproached behavior is his continued support of Andrew Tate, whose misogynist views garnered much criticism online.

Adin Ross Gets Swatted Too Often For The LAPD's Taste

Regardless, swatting is serious business and can even result in severe injury, punishment, or loss of life. Tragically, an innocent man passed away after he faced a swatting incident in his home. Reportedly, he fought with another player over a Call of Duty match and his opponent made the call to send police to his home. What's more is that it's affected multiple celebrities to varying degrees, whether it's unearthed information or simply disturbing their well-being and sense of security. Still, at least in Adin Ross's case, he still has quite the huge following despite these bumps in the road and controversies.

Meanwhile, the 22-year-old's antics and proximity to the rap world even resulted in a few conflicts and disses. For example, YoungBoy dissed the streamer after he allegedly liked Adin's girlfriend's Instagram picture and the YouTuber clapped back. "Tell that YouTuber or streamer, whatever he is," YB rapped in a song snippet. "Stop playin' with me, b***h / You ain't man like that, know them gunnas layin' with me, b***h / I ain't got no Instagram, no social media, I wasn't talkin' to yo b***h / Ugly a**, y'all disgustin', you n***as make me sick." Regardless of that exchange, come back to HNHH for the latest on Adin Ross.
