Kick streamer Ice Poseidon has come under fire after he allegedly paid a man to hire an escort and stream their time together live on the site.

The altercation took place on 21 September. It’s believed that Ice Poseidon paid a male $500 to hire a female escort, inviting her to the unknown man’s hotel room. Around the room were a series of cameras, filming the escort’s interactions with the male. It's unknown whether the escort was aware of the cameras. Ice Poseidon claimed in a tweet that she indeed was.

In a video posted by Ice Poseidon himself, taken from the stream, the escort could be seen entering the hotel room where she then began chatting with the unknown male. Elsewhere in the stream, the woman seemed to receive a message prompting a sudden urge to leave. When the escort attempted to leave, the unknown man temporarily blocked the door but a short while later, the escort was able to leave.

Online, it was said that Ice Poseidon was arrested shortly after, but he claims this was not the case. Taking to Twitter, he wrote, “Wasn't a ‘hidden camera’ and I got swatted after, not arrested. Buck adding to the Twitter cancellation nonsense!!! Figure your s**t out Twitter. It's LEGAL content that even the police wrote off as LEGAL and safe.”

As reported by Dexerto, this wouldn’t be the first time that Ice Poseidon has been at the centre of a controversy. In June, police in Thailand arrested the streamer in Bangkok after he began giving lap dances in a hotel lobby. Ice Poseidon would have faced up to five years in prison for the offence, but the charges were eventually dropped.

Many reacted to the debacle. Streamer MsSavageAF wrote, “This is not okay. Personally, I have had nothing but positive experiences on Kick. The past couple months have been amazing and I’ve met some of the most incredible streamers who inspire me. But I do not stand by this kind of content and watching this made me feel so uncomfortable. Point blank: Kick dropped the ball on this one and action needs to be taken immediately.”

Kick have since put out a vague statement, saying, “There's incredible untapped potential in what live streaming has to offer. We're firm believers that the greatest days of live streaming are yet to come. With that said, community & public safety cannot be compromised in the process of making ‘content’. We're continuously learning where this balance sits and are making changes daily. We appreciate our community for the continuous feedback, both the good & the bad. We'll keep you updated on upcoming changes to community guidelines and subsequent enforcement measures.”
