Uber Eats Driver Becomes A Millionaire Through YouTube Controversies

This man became a YouTube star following his feud with Pokimane and Ninja.

Jidon Adams, a former Uber Eats driver, now a YouTube star with over 6 million followers, has a successful channel named JiDion, averaging around 4 million views per video. His content revolves around silly pranks and comedic videos. However, this success followed a rather controversial start to his YouTube career.

Adams got banned on Twitch following his controversy with Pokimane, who accused him of misogyny. After a huge backlash, both creators met and resolved their issue. 

Adams then moved to YouTube and created a fast-growing channel in recent months despite his feuds and controversies.

According to Sportskeeda, Adams began streaming on Twitch regularly in August 2021 and rapidly built up a following of over 300,000 people. Unfortunately, he got a 14-day suspension in January 2022 due to violating the “Terms of Service.” 

On Jan 12, popular Twitch streamer Pokimane received an inundation of negative comments on her live stream, which came from Adams viewers.
