Microsoft has ended its partnership with Mixer streamer HarrisonJr after the streamer sent out a Tweet that made sexual references about underage Fortnite players.

As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, Harrison “HarrisonJr” Patrick Stewart posted a now-deleted Tweet which he captioned “Come watch a registered sex offender plays [sic] Fortnite with 10 year olds!!”

While HarrisonJr’s Tweet has since been deleted, Twitter user @TheUglyDad grabbed a screenshot prior to its removal.

The streamer later Tweeted an apology, clarifying that while he meant it as a joke, he realises that the subject matter “isn’t something to be joked about.”

A few hours later he sent out another Tweet saying that he doesn’t “condone what [he] did” and will “never stop apologising for [it].”

A Microsoft spokesperson told The Hollywood Reporter that “[the team at Microsoft] take immediate action when we determine content violates our terms of service.”

“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.”

HarrisonJr had been a verified partner on Mixer. He had around 80,000 followers on the platform prior to his un-verification. While it stayed up for a while after the incident, HarrisonJr’s Mixer page is now inactive, with all previous streams deleted.
