During a recent stream, Eddie was asked if he watched Adin’s stream with the impersonator, and he replied with some insight on what was happening behind the scenes at Kick during the event.

He said: “I think the view count was actually broken on that. Everyone thinks that the stream went up to 450,000 viewers, it actually got up to 700,000 viewers, but the website crashed.

Adin Ross is no stranger to doing weird events on stream. The “Kim Jong Un” stream came just weeks after he constructed a fake prison in a warehouse with Sneako to prove to the Tate brothers that he could last in jail.
