H3H3’s Ethan Klein Calls Out Twitch Gambling Streamers
In his first Twitch stream in three years, H3H3’s Ethan Klein took aim at hugely popular ‘gambling streams’.
‘Gambling streams’ have enjoyed a large viewership over the past few weeks, driven by big streamers including XQC, Trainwrecks and Adin Ross.
Referring to Ross, Klein said the streamer was “really p****** me off”.
“Like he’s just not a good dude. I mean I don’t know him personally but it just seems like he’s willing to… he’s willing to do anything to make money off the back of his fans and then laugh about it,” said Klein, referring to the streams as a ‘scam’.
Focusing on Trainwrecks, Klein labelled his content “really messed up”.
Though the streamer was playing a video game at the time, Klein derided his usual content: “Let’s watch Trainwrecks get kids hooked to gambling – it’s awesome.”
Later Adin Ross joined Klein to discuss his concerns.
Referring to a $2 million contract Ross has with a gambling site, Klein pointed out “there’s a reason they’re paying you right?”
“You are sending people, who you don’t know how old they are, you don’t know their financial situation and most likely, it’s probably illegal, depending what state they’re in.”
“Your audience watching you gamble – nothing good is going to come out of that for any of them. It’s all bad. And there a reason you have to be 21-years-old to gamble. Its a vice.”
Though Klein and Ross appeared to get along by the end of their conversation, Ross refused to quit gambling streams before fulfilling his contract.
“Quit now and I will respect you.” Klein challenged.
“Can’t quit now, the job’s not finished,” responded Ross.
“Then you’re turning your head and making blood money.”
