Twitch Promotes Porn On Ninja's Old Channel, And He Is NOT Happy About It

Update: Ninja's page has been reverted to reflect that of a normal offline page.

Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has just released an apology video after he discovered that Twitch has been promoting other channels on his still-active profile, including one which was showing adult content.

In the short video, he discusses his recent transition over to Mixer, as well as the current situation with Twitch.

Until now Ninja has been nothing but professional about the move, something he emphasizes in his apology. He also talks about how, despite many other streamers moving to other platforms, his is the only channel which is now used for promotion by Twitch.

It sounds like he was annoyed at the promotion, but it tipped into disgust after adult material was the number one recommended stream on his channel.

A screenshot taken by Keemstar, of Drama Alert fame, shows the recommendations, including a very NSFW stream.

Ninja is upset that his brand is being used for promotion, but he's even more upset that his audience is comprised of a large number of young viewers who could potentially have seen the inappropriate content being streamed below his name and logo.

Despite Ninja having no control over the channel and its current content, he has issued the above apology and says he hopes to get the channel removed as soon as possible.

The mistake is the latest in a line of miss-steps for streaming giant Twitch, with July being one of its craziest months to date. Not only has the streaming platform faced a backlash over its lack of any form of response to streamer Alinity throwing her cat while broadcasting, but it also had a number of other dramas unfold.

These included streamer Craig Williams publishing the incredibly unprofessional email he was sent, and the Internet getting in another flap when the platform banned Heathered Effect for breastfeeding on stream.

We also saw XQC banned for watching SFW adult material because it contained a split second frame, which was not entirely covered by cartoon artwork.

However, another channel was able to broadcast adult material for over an hour before being taken down, something which is said to have happened again in the case of the stream on Ninja's channel.

Twitch has attempted to curb the tide of accounts streaming inappropriate material, especially under the Artifact category by banning new accounts from streaming and filing a lawsuit against streamers broadcasting adult material. It seems that this isn't enough, as the rising tide of inappropriate content and the lack of a swift response in dealing with it is leaving Twitch facing a huge backlash.
