Harrison “HarrisonJr” Patrick Stewart was playing Fortnite while streaming to Microsoft’s Mixer platform as a verified personality and partner-level streamer until last week. Mixer cancelled his partnership after Stewart sent out a tweet on Twitter saying, “Come watch a registered sex offender plays Fortnite with 10 year olds!!”
HarrisonJr has since released a statement and a two-part video to his Twitter account apologizing for his tweet. In the first video he states that he is not a registered sex offender and that he was joking when he sent out the tweet promoting his Mixer stream.
In response to his comments, various Mixer streamers called for him to be banned from the platform.
“We take immediate action when we determine content violates our terms of service,” a Microsoft spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter. “We encourage our users to report potential violations, and we provide guidance on how to do that. We’ve reviewed the content in question and as a result made the decision to end our partnership.”
As of this post, his Mixer account(s) are inactive and all previous live streams have been removed.
