As you probably already know, Ninja is hosting a major Fortnite event in Times Square on New Year's Eve.
The event will begin at 13:00 CET / 16:00 CET / 9:00 CET GMT and will last 12 hours until the morning.
Aside from the normal amount of backlash, the Ninja, other Fortnite streamer, and other community supported the event.
Now that has become a bit more complicated. With ads for the event appearing on other streamers channels, some are not happy about it.
Dr. DisRespect went ahead, calling the ad roles "ugly."
Dear @Twitch Bring this ugly-looking New Year's Eve advertisement from my side.
Never do that again

DisRespect's biggest name was to call the ads, he was not the only person who had gotten angry. 19659006] I'll be posting my opinion on Twitch's commercial for Ninjas New Years Eve Stream in the ad roles of other channels and probably my own channel. I do not like It's a direct conflict of interest and I'm not a fan of it. This should be a matter of course. @Twitch

Ninja did not exactly help the cause when he responded to BikeMan's tweet when he said the event was "Commitment "brings with it twitching. "He quickly deleted this answer, but not before it was a screenshot.
So, who's right here? Both have valid arguments, but I'm trying to outline some points here.
The Doc and Bikeman do not want to directly advertise a competitor's channel, especially if the event is tied to a specific holiday, and if either of them has a special New Year's Eve event for their supporters, it looks like the ad is doing more harm than good  Although they have the channels and get the most revenue from the stream, they have no control ads, so it seems like a small fix to blacklist a small number of ads is a reasonable solution Streamers give some control.

On the other side What Ninja (or true Seldom Red Bull) did, was only the purchase of advertising space. It's their right to negotiate a deal with Twitch, and it's not exactly unique.
The Doc has a popular ad for GFUEL Energy that runs on Twitch and other streamers – like Tyler 1 from League of Legend – also appear in ads. So how does an ad differ from an Ninja ad, as well as ads that promote people in general?
