Ninja Says Twitch Promoted Porn On His Old Channel

Ninja, the famous streamer who recently decided to leave Twitch and work exclusively with Mixer, has accused Twitch of promoting a “porn account” on his old Twitch channel. He posted the concerning video to show his complaint via Twitter on Sunday, with the text “Disgusted and so sorry.”

Ninja Complains To Twitch On Twitter

Ninja complains Twitch on using his old channel to promote other streamers. It is never the case on other streamers’ pages, including those who have signed deals with other streaming services. Normally, each streamer’s homepage will have that streamer’s channel information. But for Ninja’s page, it now features text that reads “The streamer you’re looking for is in another castle”. And of course with dozens of links to other streamers he complains about.

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

“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 stated. “This is the line. This is the straw. 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,” Ninja said on the video.

Twitch’s Inconsistency On Community Guidelines

On the community guidelines, Twitch states that they prohibit sexually explicit content and activities, such as pornography, sexual acts, and sexual services, including solicitation and offers for such content. Twitch also states that the rule also applies on “sexually suggestive” content. Twitch has been criticized in the past, with some stating the company inconsistently enforces its own guidelines. Thus might led to the success of the streamer girl who sold her bath water online.

During a recent stream, Mixer CEO Matt Salsamendi commented on the critcism. “Twitch has struggled with things along the lines enforcement for a long time because it’s a hard problem. It’s a hard problem to solve as a community grows. So one of the things we did early on to try to get ahead of some of that stuff was making our rules of conduct as clear and objective as possible, so you know if you’re doing something right or wrong. There’s not really gray area. If you look at our code of conduct as it relates to clothing, we outline the exact requirements in terms of clothing at each different rating on Mixer,” Matt said.

Ninja’s old Twitch channel currently sports about 14 million followers. 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.
