Evo Japan stops Twitch stream after multiple NSFW incidents

Evo Japan kicked off on February 15 and just a few hours into the stream, they had to temporarily shut things down after multiple NSFW incidents made their way on to the broadcast during an advertising segment for Dead or Alive 6.

Advertising games and products at Evo is nothing out of the ordinary - it has happened plenty of times during the Evo World Championship events. 

However, things got a little out of hand when presenters showing off Dead or Alive 6 got raunchy with their actions, causing Evo to shut down the event stream for some time.

While showing off Dead or Alive 6’s free camera movement, the screen was deliberately paused, zoomed and panned to display a freeze frame of what had happened in-game - with the fallout of the powerbomb, from above, looking suspiciously like a sexual act.

Yet, the NSFW material on-stream didn’t stop just there.

The two women involved in the show started revealing more of their cleavage to the broadcast while the camera zoomed in on them for a few moments, before cutting away to some more DoA6 gameplay.

The Dead or Alive advertisement continued on, with one of the women mockingly 'spanking' the other and the pair bouncing up and down while the camera, again, zoomed in on them and their breasts.

In a now-deleted tweet, Evo director Joey Cuellar apologized to viewers for what they may have witnessed as it went against the 'core values' of Evo. 

He said: “The DOA ad that aired on our stream does not reflect the core values of Evo or the FGC. We ended the stream temporarily to protect the integrity of our brand. We sincerely apologize to our fans.”

Evo were not happy with the Ad segment.

Mark 'MarkMan' Julio, global head of business development for Evo, also echoed Cuellar's tweet by appearing on stream to apologize for what viewers had seen.

"It does not reflect the content and intention of Evo, so we do apologize if we offended anyone during the broadcast," MarkMan added. 

After some downtime, the Evo Japan stream returned to Twitch to continue showing some fighting game action. 

The channel has not been banned by Twitch despite, perhaps, falling foul of their rules and guidelines regarding NSFW content.
