Later that day, multiple Twitter[22] users, including @futurexo, shared a clip from a Kick stream of Ross on a call with someone who appears to be white repeatedly saying the n-word. Later, Twitter[23] user @JakeSucky posted an alleged DM from Ross telling him, "Keep Yourself Safe :)," a subtle way of telling him to kill himself (KYS) (shown below).

The tweet gained over 50,000 likes in five days (shown below).


Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller. Feb 26 I never wanted to bring this to my platform, but I NEED to get this rant out. I am Adin Ross' half-brother. This is not a joke, and a few of you already knew. He was banned from Twitch yesterday and has been making erratic career and life decisions since meeting Andrew Tate. 13,557 50.6K ılı 5.9M 744 Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller Feb 26 Fame came to Adin really fast when he was still a teenager, so our whole family (including my mom) have worked hard to keep certain people away from him and keep him on the right path. We've always been a team like that and there's never been a problem before. Until... 9 1 73 9,824 ılıl 690.7K Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 Last year, my brother started talking to the controversial influencer Andrew Tate online. Adin had just gone through a bad breakup with this girl Pami (his first serious relationship) and was really vulnerable. I showed our dad some of Tate's content and he got really worried. 7 1 90 ılı 684.5K ↑ 9,502 Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 But Adin had turned 21, so the family decided to let him figure things out on his own. What's the worst that could happen, right? By the holidays, he had totally changed. He had a fight with dad and told him to dye his hair blue. I couldn't believe this was my kid brother. 4 1 94 9,019 ill674.5K 10 ... ↑ 9,312 Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller. Feb 26 When our dad found out Adin was going to fly to Romania to visit Andrew Tate in prison, he tried to intervene, but Adin totally cut him off. By the time he flew out, he'd cut off aunts, an uncle, cousins, and at least one grandparent. The people that raised him. His blood. 193 ılı 647.4K ... Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 If I have to hear my father cry over Adin one more time, I swear to god. It's strained our relationship now too because I don't wanna hear about Adin anymore. I'm so tired of this b-------. The Kanye West thing alone caused so much drama. And for what? For clout? It's insane. 13 72 9,719 ilıl 637.8K Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 A lot of kids look up to Adin. The last time we saw each other, we went shoe shopping and this little boy ran up to him and was crying, said he was his hero. Whether he asked for it or not, that's his audience, and it's irresponsible to feed them this kind of nonsense. Period. Q6 13 97 ♡ 10.5K Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 I mean, he's streaming p--- on his channel? Calling women dishwashers? We were never the closest growing up, but I don't even know who he is anymore. Now his Twitch is permanently banned and his entire career hinges on the success of an unregulated gambling portal. What happened? 11 12 124 14 631.4K 11.4K Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller ↑ il. 630.5K Miller Ross @mmmmmmmmiller - Feb 26 I've always respected his wishes to keep the family private and I've never commented on anything he's said or done until ONE retweet the other day about the p--- incident, and he calls me this morning screaming about how he wants my motorcycle back (which was a birthday gift btw) 1 66 9,263 il. 746.9K ……. I'm done. I'm not gonna sit around and wait for him to stop torturing our family because he's in love with some bald British r-----. I used to blame Andrew Tate, but now I blame @adinross. He didn't make you act like this. Not to me, not to our sister, and not to dad. Grow up. 11:20 AM - Feb 26, 2023-812.9K Views

You ever see someone that without hearing them speak, without knowing a single thing they did yet you just sit there and go "I hate this fucking guy." and then getting that sudden wave of vindication when you find out he's a total piece of shit and hating him is actually the right thing to do? Yeah that's me with this guy and Mizkif.

Yes, pay a visit to the most isolated dictatorship in the entire world, one that will imprison anyone for having so much as a book that's of anything related to stuff in the western world if not outright hostile to said part of the world entirely. The very same country with borders that have orders to shoot anyone on sight. I'm sure that'll work out splendidly.
