Tyler “Ninja” Blevins took to Twitter on Sunday to put Twitch on blast. He accused them of using his dormant page to promote other streams, including one featuring NSFW content.

Twitch CEO Emmett Shear responded with an apology, but Ninja’s wife-manager Jessica Blevins reacted to Shear’s apology. They said Twitch did it purposefully to “kill @Ninja brand.”

The latest developments follow Ninja’s announcement on August 1 that he was leaving Amazon’s Twitch for Mixer after securing an exclusive deal with Microsoft.

On August 11, Ninja posted a video to Twitter calling out Twitch for using his dormant Twitch channel to promote other streamers. This promotion included a channel featuring NSFW content.

The NSFW content was featured on Ninja’s channel as the number 1 recommended channel on the Twitch platform.

According to Ninja, Twitch used only his channel as a platform to promote other streams. They did not use other channels on the platform for the same purpose.
