It’s not considered a real internet controversy unless popular YouTuber Daniel ‘KEEMSTAR’ Keem is involved.
The host of ‘DramaAlert’ took to social media to chime in on the recent controversy being made of Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins’ comments about global music artist Drake.
Much attention has been given to a viral clip posted on Twitter by YouTuber ‘OMGItsBirdman’ who was arguing that Ninja believes Drake had used him to sell more albums.
Ninja thinks Drake used him LOL bro everybody in your stream already knows who Drake is. Who the fuck does this guy think he is?? Dude thinks he is more well known than Drake LMAOOO pic.twitter.com/BxRJNOsd0u

Of course the two have played Fortnite together on multiple occasions, including during a record breaking stream that amassed over 630,000 concurrent viewers at one point.
However, as many were quick to point out, OMGItsBirdman failed to include what Ninja had said after that clip was taken, which made the whole “controversy” rather empty and pointless.
tbh the video you tweeted is kind of deceiving though – makes it seem like @Ninja is just talking down on Drake which isn’t true. Here’s the 2nd half for those who are interested pic.twitter.com/GYPt9hLdso

The following day, KEEMSTAR posted his own video on his Twitter page, in which he expressed his personal views on the whole situation.
“Over the last 24 hours there’s been a story out there that ‘Ninja saying that Drake used him!’ […] Now listen, I don’t believe that Ninja thinks that Drake actually used him. I think his line of wording was just a little bit off here. When Drake came on Ninja’s stream, it helped Ninja out and Ninja knows that. But the whole argument that it didn’t help Drake at all and Drake was just helping Ninja is ridiculous because as an artist, they want to sell songs, they want to sell albums, they want to make money from selling their music. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a correct statement when you say ‘everybody knows Drake.’ But the fact that Ninja and Drake played together, I believe caused Drake to get more record sales.”
