Twitch Promotes NSFW Channels On Ninja's Profile, He's "Disgusted"

Over the last week, we've discussed a lot about Tyler "Ninja" Blevins moving from Twitch to Mixer, the streaming platform held by Microsoft. The transition with Ninja moving from Twitch to Mixer has caused a great stir with the media, and numerous new viewers flocking to Mixer to watch the professional stream play.

Of course, Twitch wasn't too happy about the change and tried to get the silver lining out of their black cloud. As such, they attempted to promote other channels on Ninja's profile (as summarized at VideoGamer), due to his channel being offline with his streaming exclusivity contract with Mixer.

However, something went wrong over the weekend as a porn and NSFW content got promoted on Ninja's Twitch channel. He noticed the promotion and posted a video on Twitter, making it clear he was "disgusted and so sorry" about what happened. This apology went out because it was likely several kids wanting to catch him playing Fortnite may have seen the inappropriate advertisements. 

Since then, Twitch CEO issued a statement on Twitter where he apologized about what happened, "personally" to Blevins. Additionally, the CEO claimed it was due to an automatic system they are testing right now to get live content to viewers sooner.

Emmett Shear said he wanted "to apologize directly to Ninja that this happened. It wasn’t our intent, but it should not have happened. No excuses" and that the platform has thus far "suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to get promoted.

While Ninja has stayed silent after the original video you can watch below, his wife and manager Jessica Blevins did not. She claimed she's still unsatisfied about Twitch's behavior since it's doing "PR control right now, but it seems their intent from the beginning was to try to kill Ninja's brand."

A report which, she says, is sustained by one of the founder's saying "RIP" with a winky emoji when retweeting the video of Ninja leaving Twitch for Mixer on August 2, 2019.
