Ninja is the most popular stream right now who happens to play a lot of Fortnite and has gained huge success while playing it. Recently he has got some heat from the fans and Twitch users after he mentioned why he doesn’t play with women.
Ninja recently talked with Polygon explaining why he doesn’t play with women while streaming as he said:
If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever.
This raised a lot of questions as Twitch personalities and many people criticised him so Ninja decided to clarify himself on Twitter.
I wanted to take a moment to address the discussion around the article that came out over the weekend. While I understand some people have implied my views mean I have something against playing with women, I want to make clear the issue I’m addressing is online harassment, and my attempt to minimize it from our life. It is something that affects all streamers, especially ones that make their relationships public. I wanted to bring attention to this issue and my comments should not be characterized as anything beyond that.
He also then went on to mention how he celebrated his first-year anniversary with wife and he mentioned that his family is the most important thing to him and he’s doing best to protect them.
Ninja has a huge following and he’s without a doubt the best player of Fortnite as he continues to his road to success. He also talked about Fortnite and why there’s no cross-platform support by Sony.
We think that it all comes to personal preference and Ninja is doing something he loves so he’s avoiding to be distracted by ending up doing something foolish.
