List of records set by Adin Ross during Kick stream interview with Kim Jong Un impersonator and most live viewers record
Despite Kick’s CEO acknowledging he poses a “brand risk” to the platform because of his numerous scandals, Adin Ross has primarily taken on the role of the company’s spokesperson even since he was permanently banned from Twitch.
Despite the feelings, Eddie Craven, the CEO of Kick, appears to want to collaborate with Adin and has even suggested flying him to North Korea so they can stream together. Kim Jong Un is the country’s supreme leader.
On the day of his scheduled interview, Ross’ viewers soared with over 333,506 fans tuning in to get a glimpse of ‘Kim Jong Un’, who turned out to be none other than Howard X, an impersonator but after it was revealed that it wasn’t the real leader, Adin also set the record to lose the most number of live streamers in a minute.
Meanwhile, Kick streamer Adin Ross successfully deceived viewers by claiming to have interviewed Kim Jong Un, setting a record for the site. Ross stated he has the leader of North Korea “locked in” for a talk that will go live in the following 48 hours earlier this week during a live feed. He said that US officials had told him not to conduct the alleged interview, saying:
We definitely got government officials hitting up my legal team. No, I swear to god, it’s not that. It got millions of views on Twitter and it’s on TikTok and s**t. They see everything! The government sees everything.”
They saw and hit up, basically, my team and they just let me know there could be consequences for this. You know?”
Ross also revealed the list of questions he had planned to ask the leader.
- Thoughts on LGBT?
- Can you give Stake money back?
- React to Andrew Tate.
- Visit North Korea?
- Add Yeonmi Park to call.
- Trump vs. Biden.
- USA better than North Korea.
- Fake n*tsack prank.
Internet nearly fell victim to this YouTuber’s false Kim Jong Un interview
It was later discovered that Ross had actually spoken to a professional impersonator, therefore the exhilaration surrounding the claimed conversation was short-lived. The disclosure came from several media that showed the interview’s authenticity.
Howard X promotes his services on platforms like Cameo, where customers can hire impersonators to deliver personalised messages, and is well known for his amazing resemblance to the North Korean leader.
Adin Ross lied to his followers and ended up bringing out a fake Kim Jong Un on live-stream.
