Ninja’s old Twitch profile was caught streaming adult content

The streaming personality recently signed an exclusivity deal with Mixer, and so far things seem to be working out, with massive subscriber numbers and a huge surge in popularity for Microsoft's streaming platform. In retrospect, this has completely backfired on Twitch as now that it has been made public it could lead fellow Twitch streamers to think less of Twitch and more of Microsoft's Mixer.

Ninja obviously has no control over that Twitch landing page now, since he's left the service for good, and is dismayed in this video below that the page is showcasing other streamer's content.

Blevins, a "Fortnite" star, is one of the biggest names in gaming, and he was far and away the most-watched streamer on Twitch past year.

Ninja posted a video on Twitter shortly after, apologizing to anybody that saw the recommendation.


But after a channel streaming pornographic content was included in the related channels section on Ninja's profile earlier today, he expressed how disappointed he was at how poorly Twitch had handled the situation. "To help ensure they find great, live channels we've been experimenting with showing recommended content across Twitch, including on streamer's pages that are offline", Shear wrote on Twitter.

That, Ninja alleges, has resulted in a "porn account" being promoted on his former page.

"We have also suspended these recommendations while we investigate how this content came to be promoted". I've been trying to get the whole channel taken down to begin with, or at least not promote other streamers and other channels on my brand, on my friggin profile. Twitch through its CEO, later on, went to apologise to Tyler "Ninja" Blevins for the appearance of a porn video on the streamer's offline Twitch page. He concludes with an apology to Ninja, "It wasn't our intent, but it should not have happened". His debut stream on Mixer, which hit an average of 65,000 viewers and a peak of 95,877, managed to beat his average views on Twitch. He also said he had previously ignored the perceived "little jabs" from Twitch.
