Adin Ross, who is no stranger to controversy, is once again embroiled in it, this time on allegations that he failed to pay individuals who worked on his Minecraft server.
Adin Ross is one of the few streamers who has exploded in popularity this year. He’s a member of a Los Angeles-based influencer group that includes FaZe Clan, Logan Paul, and even Bronny James, the son of basketball GOAT, LeBron James, with whom he regularly broadcasts NBA 2K21.
However, this hasn’t stopped him from causing trouble. In fact, in all honesty, it probably helped. H3H3 blasted him for his gambling streaming, and he was suspended from Twitch after being found texting while driving during a live stream.
Now, the Twitch star has been accused of possibly scamming people close to him, even his own staff..
This comes after a Minecraft map builder claimed that Adin Ross neglected to pay him for more than “100 hours” of work on a now-defunct server.
Salad Plays MC, a well-known member of the Minecraft building community with over 142,000 followers on TikTok, has made the allegations. Salad Plays MC stated in a tweet that he had been “hired to build all the maps” on a server for Adin Ross and another broadcaster known as Rewack.
He stated; “Over 100 combined hours went into making the maps and I (and others) have NOT BEEN PAID for the work. I made 11 maps in total. I thought I should let the community know.”
He then verified in a follow-up tweet that he believed Adin Ross was well aware of the issue and had made it clear that he had no intention of paying as he wrote; “Adin and I spoke on numerous occasions about the builds, as well as confirming prices and specifications he did and did not want. I talked with Adin multiple times. I will repeat, Adin was involved.”
Rewack eventually responded, indicating that the payment issue was “100%” his fault and that he would make the payment stating; “This is 100% my fault not (Adin Ross) since I was the project manager and had poor communication with him about payments. All should be taken care of now if you check our group chat. Just waiting on your PayPal email. Sorry again, and thank you for all the time and effort (sic).”
Although Adin Ross has yet to answer, it looks that word has reached Salad Plays MC and his colleagues, and they are set to get paid.
