"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". Twitch started using his channel to promote other channels from the community.

"As you guys know I'm streaming on Mixer now", he said.

Ninja took to Twitter saying he was "disgusted" to find pornography among the channels being promoted on his former page through the new feature, which Twitch has now suspended.

Since leaving at the beginning of August, Ninja's former streaming space was replaced with recommendations for other channels, a move which he says has only been applied to his channel and not to other people who have made a decision to leave the platform. "So for anyone who saw that.I apologize, and I'm sorry". One of the top streams that Twitch has today promoted on Ninja's channel page was hardcore porn - meaning that anyone that went to the twitch.tv/Ninja page was greeted with a stream recommendation that showed pornographic material.

Ninja, who also has more than 22 million subscribers on YouTube, amassed more than one million followers on Mixer within a week of joining the platform, which is a much smaller service than Twitch. And that is not Twitch's only problem.

So, when TMZ asked him to share his feelings on Dolphins' owner, Stephen Ross, Rozay gave a blunt, but honest, answer. He anticipates both sides will speak in the near future.

"Our community comes to Twitch looking for live content", he said in a post on Twitter. There's not really gray area.

Twitch chief executive Emmett Shear has apologised to Ninja over the lewd content that appeared on his channel, which he said there were no excuses for and that it should not have happened. "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.

Shear continued by stating that Twitch is suspending its stream recommendation process while the company investigates further.

This still doesn't justify hiding of Ninja's channel branding and social links and the inclusion of the questionable content, though.
