Ninja Enraged After Twitch Promoted Porn on His Inactive Channel

Ninja was disgusted after Twitch used his channel to promote other streamers without his consent and accidently recommended a porn channel.

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins who moved to Mixer shocking everyone and leaving his 14 million followers behind on Twitch posted a video on Twitter regarding the issue, showing his displeasure and frustration.

On August 11 the Fortnite King tweeted out a video addressing the matter and claimed that he was disgusted and sorry:

“As you guys know I’m streaming on Mixer now. My team and I have made sure that the transition went incredibly smooth, super professional. We haven’t said anything bad or negative about Twitch obviously, because there hadn’t been any reason to. Over the last couple of days there have been some things that have been going on that you know we let slide, they were kind of annoying little jabs we felt like but it didn’t matter, we want to stay professional.”

He continued by pointing out how he was the only one suffering from Twitch advertising other streamers on his channel. He went on to apologize to his fans and viewers, especially parents whose kids might have seen the porn channel.

“But now, those who don’t know if you go to https://www.twitch.tv/ninja they advertise other channels. They don’t do this for anyone else that’s offline by the way, just me. And there are also other streamers who signed with other platforms, whose streams and channels still remains the same. You can see their vods, they don’t promote other streams, they don’t promote other popular channels. But they do on mine. I’ve been streaming for eight years, to build my brand, to build that channel. Fourteen and a half million followers. And they were still using my channel to promote other streamers. Well now there was a porn account that was number one being recommended on my channel, and I have no say in any of this stuff.”

The account which Ninja is referring to was seen by countless viewers on Twitch streaming porn for 2 hours and labeled as the top Twitch channel being advertised on his deactivated account, with Twitch failing to shut the account down in time.

He later posted another tweet confirming that the account had been reverted to its normal offline state.

“Twitch has now reverted my channel back to how an offline page should look. Thank you.”

An apology was issued by Twitch CEO Emmett Shear directly to Ninja on Twitter. But rumors have been circulating that Ninja will be going to court to sue Twitch over the NSFW scandal.
