Ninja, a popular streamer also known as Richard Tyler Blevins, took to Twitter to express his dismay at the streaming Twitch platform.

According to him, Twitch is using his inactive channel to promote other streamers, one of which is allegedly an account for pornography.

Ninja Releases Statement On Twitter

In a video posted on his Twitter account, Blevins said he is disgusted over the incident, especially if children were exposed to potentially pornographic content.

"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," Ninja said on the video, adding that this incident is the "line" for him. "We're 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 freakin' profile. So for anyone who saw that, for anyone whose kids [saw that], or just obviously didn't want to see that, I apologize and I'm sorry."

The streamer stressed that this would not have happened if Twitch hadn't been promoting other accounts on his channel, which isn't being done to other Twitch streamers.

Ninja caused a stir when he parted ways with Twitch at the beginning of August to join rival streaming platform, Microsoft's Mixer.

However, his Twitch channel is still up and continues to be open to his 14.7 million followers. In the space where his stream is found on his Twitch main page, there is a message saying that the streamer on the page is now "in another castle." Then, a list of recommended Twitch streamers appear below. Ninja pointed out that this isn't something that Twitch does to other streamers who are offline or who have signed with other platforms.

Twitch Makes A Statement

Since he posted the video, Twitch has reverted Ninja's page to its original offline screen.

Twitch CEO Emmett Shear also took to Twitter to address the concerns regarding the popular streamer's inactive account. According to the executive, users come to Twitch for live content, so the company has been experimenting with showing recommended content throughout the platform, including offline accounts.

"However, the lewd content that appeared on @ninja offline channel page grossly violates our terms of service, and we've permanently suspended the account in question," Shear continued, adding that the company has suspended recommendations as they investigate the matter further.
