Jack Black vs Ninja is the E3 battle you never knew you needed to see

Actor Jack Black has issued a challenge to Twitch star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins during an interview with Geoff Keighley at E3, continuing their funny one-sided feud. 

While many think of Jack Black for his numerous acting roles or as the lead singer of the band Tenacious D, he has now turned his attention to the gaming world, starting his own YouTube channel named JablinskiGames.

At E3, Black was discussing YouTubers he would like to collaborate with, but when Ninja’s name was mentioned, the School of Rock star joked that he didn’t want to work with him, but suggested that the pair were on a collision course instead.

Black and his son Sammy discussed their collaborations with fellow YouTuber Ricky Berwick, with the Jumanji actor stating that it was something they enjoy, and would like to do more of with other creators.

When Keighley mentioned Fortnite sensation Ninja was in California for E3, Black jested that the pair would be squaring off rather than teaming up.

Black said: “Well Ninja, there’s been a head-to-head battle brewing for months,” with Sammy continuing: “We’ve talked about him so much and he’s never said a word.”

Keighley then tried to Facetime the streamer with Black, but wasn’t able to get him on the phone.

This isn’t the first time Black has called out Ninja in jest. Back in early 2018, the actor joked that the streamer had stolen his “Delgato” capture card so he couldn’t make gaming videos, insinuating that he was scared that Black would overtake him as the most popular gamer in the world.

The actor has been “training” for a confrontation with Ninja for a while, revealing back in February that he was working out so he would be “ready” when the right time to challenge the former Halo pro presented itself. 

Black’s YouTube channel has been a roaring success since its launch, amassing over four million subscribers in less than six months.

Whether the pair do eventually square off in a battle or instead choose to collaborate together remains to be seen, but it certainly seems like something Black is eager to accomplish.

TikToker Zoe Laverne has spoken out after facing a huge backlash from multiple leaked videos showing her allegedly kissing an underage fan.

Earlier this week a video surfaced online showing 19-year-old Zoe and a 13-year-old called Connor exchanging a kiss, confirming previous accusations from ex-boyfriend Cody Orlove and Amber VanPelt.

In the days before, leaked Instagram messages showed that Cody and Amber raised concerns over “very intense” interactions with Connor. Zoe had previously denied allegations of a relationship with an underage influencer.

Despite leaving Instagram in September following a lip-syncing controversy, Zoe appears to have created, and now runs, a fandom Instagram account called “zlpfandom2.0.” Shortly after the videos leaked, she explained via the account that she would be taking a break from social media, but did not address the issue.

Zoe explained that she and Connor have separated

Her mom, however, did come online to share her thoughts and defended Zoe’s relationship with Connor, saying “Anybody can reach over and kiss somebody. They’re best friends.”

On October 28, Zoe finally addressed the videos on the fandom Instagram account.  She wrote, “I would like to say I am aware of what was leaked.. but Connor was not raped, etc. Connor and I kissed yes.. never had a relationship but we did catch feelings for each other after being so close. These videos were from months ago and we both realized it was wrong and we both cut it off.”

She explained that she understood the ramifications of her actions, adding, “before anything was leaked I did tell his mom we kissed. She wasn’t happy obviously but she understood that we are both teenagers and that feelings can be caught.

“I am aware that I am an adult and I am aware that I have done something wrong and I am very sorry for what I have done. Connor and I will [livestream] together as soon as this all calms down and explain ourselves.”

She also confirmed that the situation has been settled and the two have separated. “Connor and I have had no communication for 3 days now. We are still friends but we think it’s best to stop talking and work on each other’s mental health and spend time with our families”

Despite the very serious controversy, Zoe’s TikTok account continues to grow above 17 million followers.
