Kick co-founder hits back at ex-Twitch exec amid Adin Ross’s ‘Kim Jong Un’ stream
The streaming wars rage on as Kick co-founder Bijan Tehrani says his platform lives “rent free” in ex-Twitch exec DjWheat’s head amid criticism around Adin Ross’s recent stream with a Kim Jong Un impersonator.
However, this particular stream has been garnering quite a bit of controversy online as to which personalities and what kind of content is allowed on Kick… and it even caught the attention of a former Twitch figurehead.
DjWheat lashes out at Kick after Adin Ross’s fake Kim Jong Un stream
On September 20, Kick posted a tweet commenting on Ross’s stream with the fake Kim Jong Un, writing, “We live in a simulation.”
“Your business is a simulation,” DjWheat replied in a quote-retweet.
Kick co-founder Bijhan Tehrani was quick to hit back at this comment, simply replying: “Rent free.”
However, it doesn’t look like DjWheat is taking the situation all too seriously. In response to Tehrani, the former Twitch exec simply posted a meme that read, “Mad.”
Kick also posted a response to DjWheat, telling him to “enjoy the show” alongside a screenshot showing that he follows the company on X/Twitter. DjWheat replied with a gif of actor Nick Offerman doing an “I see you” motion to the camera.
This is just the latest instance of DjWheat expressing concern about Kick after calling the platform a “sham” back in 2022.
