DrLupo and Cloak try to trigger Ninja by mocking his real first name

Unknown to some, Twitch giant Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins actually uses his middle name as his ‘first’ name, and doesn’t take kindly to having his real first name used – as DrLupo and Cloak proved.

What is Ninja’s real first name?

Ninja has previously revealed that while his first name is actually Richard, with Tyler only his middle name, he doesn’t like being called that.

That trigger provided the perfect ammunition for fellow streamer Ben ‘Fortnite player Dennis ‘Cloak’ Lepore.

NinjaNinja has parlayed his Twitch success into mega mainstream success.

DrLupo tries to trigger Ninja

The Fortnite streamer had been streaming alongside Cloak, Paul ‘ActionJaxonbtw’ and DrLupo as they looked to wreak havoc on unsuspecting public match players.

Things, however, took a twist when Ninja seemingly forgot Cloak’s actual first name –  referring to him only by his online persona when his fellow streamers began calling his Dennis. For that, the Twitch giant came under fire, as his pals all started using each other’s first names – something which is a little tricky for Ninja considering he goes by his middle name, Tyler, instead.

“It’s Dick,” stated DrLupo, as ActionJaxonbtw tried to guess Ninja’s real name. With the two streamers then repeating Dick over and over, Ninja chimed in with: “It’s not. My first name is not Dick.”

‘Dick’ is common shortened version of Richard, but it’s easy to see why somebody of Ninja’s standing would probably rather not have the name ‘Dick’ used to refer to him.

That, however, didn’t stop his pals teasing him as they tried their utmost to prompt a response from Ninja, despite his best efforts to maintain focus on the game.

The popular streamer hit his breaking point after being referred to as ‘Dick’ during a tense firefight at Tilted Town. “It’s RICHARD!” Ninja roared as DrLupo jokingly continued to repeat Dick over and over.

With his mission to trigger Ninja, again, complete, DrLupo began laughing at his friends loud and abrupt response. It took a few moments to die down but everyone ultimately returned to calling each other by the names that they actually like to be called.

Ninja’s name might legally be Richard, yet it doesn’t seem like the best of ideas to actually call him that. Sticking to Ninja or Tyler, in the future, is probably best.


YouTuber Trisha Paytas urges Shane Dawson to “take accountability” for treating her poorly

Content creator and influencer Trisha Paytas has called out YouTuber Shane Dawson and his fiance Ryland Adams for not “taking accountability” for their actions following her revelations about Jeffree Star and HairbyJay last week. 

In a series of TikToks, Paytas insists that it is unfair that the two are able to just go about their lives without taking accountability for their actions.

She said: “They never  have to take accountability for anything. They don’t learn, they don’t get it. They’ll have an apology, throw therapy in there, but they don’t change. And it’s not okay.”

“The amount of trauma and trust issues I have from this are far greater than anything any ex-boyfriend or daddy issues could give me,” she continued. “This is someone I’ve never lied to and never said one bad word about for twelve years.”

Paytas added: “I find out every day, more and more nasty s**t he said about me.”

“It just goes to show what horrible human beings they are. They think that if they don’t address stuff, it just goes away,” she said.  “And that is the truth, because a lot of people won’t have to take accountability for their actions and for being a s**tty person because the internet forgets stuff and the drama moves on.”

Paytas also dubbed Dawson’s fiance Adams a “weasel,” saying that he “couldn’t wait to talk about it” because “he was so happy to have a little bit of spotlight on him.”

She also called out Shane in a TikTok pointedly titled: “Signs you’re in a toxic friendship (but don’t wait twelve years to end it).”

Some of the “signs” she mentioned include: “says they won’t support you publicly because it gives them anxiety (but does it for other people),” “stops showing up in-person for any important events,” “they only call you when their other friendships aren’t working out,” “they trigger you on purpose to go off on people on their behalf,” “tries to convince you to ‘move on’ from trauma that makes them look bad” and “tells you they ‘don’t want to believe what you’re saying’ when you’re opening up to them.”

Shane and Ryland are yet to comment publicly on the situation.
