The drama for Twitch continues as Tyler “Ninja” Blevins took to Twitter to share his “disgust” at the platform following a recent event.
A channel was able to stream pornography on the platform for hours before it was taken care of, and to make matters worse it was advertised on Ninja’s old page on the site. A streamer who was known for having a majority of his audience under the age of 18 certainly still has people checking on his page who weren’t aware of his switch to Mixer. These minors would in turn have been shown pornography through his page.
This is, of course, a very bad look potentially for his brand as parents of these kids or the kids themselves could now be affected and their image or opinion of the streamer changed.

After posting a video calling out the platform, it appears Twitch was eventually able to solve the issue and also returned the streamers profile to the generic offline screen rather than the redirect it had been using the page for prior with the comment “The streamer you’re looking for us in another castle. Check out these popular live channels.”
He made it a point to call out this tactic in the clip and how their seeming abuse of his page could have hurt his brand which could have legal repercussions.
Twitch has now reverted my channel back to how an offline page should look. Thank you.— Ninja (@Ninja) August 11, 2019
Regardless of whether any further action is taken, this is just another piece of an even greater puzzle of just how the past year has been for the broadcast giant.
