Hugely popular right into the mainstream.

That massive success would not be possible if it wasn’t for the support of his fans, despite some shying away from supporting his channel because of the life-changing sums of money he has already made.

It was something that he was left puzzled by and has now related his own experiences to Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s lawsuit with FaZe Clan.

NinjaNinja has been able to parlay his Twitch success into mainstream attention.

During his May 23 stream, Blevins referenced his wife’s recent tweets about how fans should support streamers that they like, regardless of how much money they make – again, circling back to Tfue.

He noted that unsubscribing from his stream and not using promo code Ninja became a meme because he had “too much money” – yet, that didn’t stop fans supporting other massive streamers.

“No matter what, you just support people who you support,” started Ninja. “If you want to subscribe to a stream, subscribe to a stream. You should never do anything just because of how much money someone makes.

“And, all this stuff that came out about how much Turner’s been making from like Banks and everyone, and all this stuff – millions, right.”

However, Ninja wasn’t finished there – circling back to his own experiences with fans walking away from his channel. He added: “Yet, it was still ok to use code Tfue and get that stuff tattooed on his bodies and things like that. Like, no one can give me crap anymore man.”

    Regardless of the money they may make, the most successful streamers are usually in the game for the support of their fans, which is clearly something Ninja just wants to keep around his own community.

TikTokers are bursting with outrage after a balloon artist claimed she would charge $300 for a custom made balloon mosaic. The video and many responses to it are now going viral all across social media.

Creators on TikTok can be canceled for almost anything and fans can be brutal with their criticism. But, rather than enraging viewers for a political viewpoint or insensitive post, Kelsey Onstott is the subject of hate for charging “too much” money for her balloon art.

The video in question shows Kelsey creating a custom color 5ft balloon mosaic, in which she voices over the video saying “I’ve received a lot of really weird comments about my pricing in general but especially the balloon mosaics.

“Someone commented and said that takes less than 30 minutes to make and you can get balloons from Party City for $5 and that’s just simply not true. So if anyone out there sees this and thinks they can replicate this with Party City balloons and do it in less than 30 minutes then duet me because I’d love to see it.”

People popped off in the comments. One of the top comments on the video read, “300?!? It better play music.” Someone else wrote, “For $300 it better walk and sing.” Another person added “I literally liked it then unliked it…$300 chill. Maybe you can’t do it in less than 30 minutes but most definitely less than $100.”

But, others defended Kelsey’s work. TikToker Demi Skipper (Trademeproject) wrote “I think it’s beautiful! People shouldn’t hate on other people’s work or pricing, If she has customers at that price – then you go girl.”

The drama wasn’t just confined to the comments as Tiktokers who thought Kelsey was full of hot air accepted the challenge. User @sarahs.everyday.living posted a TikTok of her making a similar balloon mosaic for under $50. Her response has had more than 8 million views and drove the conversation to new heights, with some bigger TikTok stars weighing in such as Indiana and Jena Frumes.

User @sugarhaddy posted a duet with Kelsey, amassing more than 13 million views and said while she doesn’t think it’s wrong to charge $300, “it’s wrong to challenge people without explaining your process if your customers have questions on why it costs so much.”

However, some duetted the video defending the artist. TikToker Heartthrobrobert thought people had inflated the issue, saying: “You’re all kids with no money of course you think that.

“Do you think these rich people want to spend their entire day getting balloons and blowing them up and putting them in a letter that’s just one decoration of dozens at their event? You can do it because you have all the time, you guys just jerk off all day so this seems like nothing. Get a grip!”
