Fortnite player Soleil ‘EwOk’ Wheeler was so happy after receiving a gift from fellow streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins that she broke out his iconic ‘Pon Pon’ dance to show her appreciation.

Back in August, the 28-year-old revealed that he had partnered up with sportswear giants Adidas as part of a new sponsorship deal, and since then has been sending out gifts of Ninja-branded Adidas apparel to content creators and friends.

FaZe Clan’s EwOk became the last popular personality to get her hands on some sick Ninja merch, revealing that the Mixer streamer had sent her a jacket, and celebrating in the only way she knew how.

YouTube: AdidasNinja revealed he had signed with Adidas, and sent EwOk a gift from his collection.

The Pon-Pon became a huge part of Ninja’s streams when he first transitioned into battle royale games, standing up and performing the dance in between matches or after securing wins back on H1Z1.

While he doesn’t break it out that often anymore, it’s still widely recognized as Ninja’s signature move, so after opening the gift on stream, EwOk decided there was only one thing to do.

In a tweet sent from her Twitter account on Thursday, September 5, the 13-year-old thanked Ninja for the jacket he had sent her, before launching into her own rendition of the Pon-Pon.

EwOk has become a star in the Fortnite community, become the first female to join FaZe Clan, while showing off her insane talents at Fortnite.

What makes her accomplishments even more impressive is the fact that she is deaf, and after receiving a host from Tim ‘Timthetatman’ Betar, has skyrocketed up the Twitch charts and remained as one of the game’s brightest stars ever since.

Both her skill and infectous positivity brings viewers to her stream in thousands, but whether we’ll ever see her hit the dance move again remains to be seen. It could just be a one time thing, but who knows, maybe if Ninja keeps sending Adidas gear, EwOk will keep the Pon Pon going.

KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
