Twitch Promoted A Porn Stream On Ninja’s Offline Page

The Amazon-owned streaming giant, Twitch, found themselves in hot water as they accidentally promoted a porn stream on Ninja's offline page.

Former Twitch and current Mixer streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins, expressed understandable anger and apologized as some of his fans were subjected to pornographic content. The streamer, which has moved from Twitch to Mixer earlier this month, shared on Twitter an apology to his fans, which vary in age.

Recently, Twitch began using his vacant account as a way to provide other streamers a boost. The Twitch account, despite being inactive for the foreseeable future, maintains a base of about 14,000,000 followers. He maintained that he had absolutely nothing to do with the decision.

In response to the controversy, Twitch CEO explained on Twitter that they were testing a new feature. The feature curates and promotes other channels.

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. This helps all streamers as it creates new community connections.

It just so happened for one reason or another, Twitch’s sensors didn’t pick up a very clear porn stream. To this, he made clear they have suspended the affiliated account indefinitely.

However, the lewd content that appeared on the @ninja offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service, and we’ve permanently suspended the account in question.

He then finished his response by apologizing to Ninja for the event.

This isn’t the first time the Amazon-owned streaming giant had its management questioned. Last month, Alinity, a notable streamer with over 900,000, was hit with a wave of controversy after she “threw” or “dropped” her cat behind her as she streamed. She also fed her cat vodka in the past and admitted to falsely reporting videos. Even though this is public, Twitch has done nothing to penalize her.
