Tyler “Ninja” Blevins was known to go off on a few expletive laden tirades in his earlier streaming days, but recently has switched and cleaned up his act.

It takes just a quick search on YouTube to find Ninja swearing at opponents on previous games he played, but as his profile started to rise by playing Fortnite, he made the decision to cut out cursing entirely.

During a stream on 1st July, Ninja double down on why there are no more curses to be found on his channel.

“I want as many people to enjoy the stream as possible and I’ll I have to do is stop swearing? Sounds good to me. It is also the right thing to do. When I go into other streams and hear the f-bomb every other word in a sentence, it’s just, bleh.”

Ninja has become the most popular streamer on Twitch with over 8.5 million followers, so his philosophy on cursing appears to be paying off.

However there was a time when Ninja had no issues with cursing, even thinking it was the best way to grow a channel.

“Raging and all that stuff, to me at the time, that was the funny thing to do.”

Unfortunately, much like everyone’s favorite indie band that started to play on the radio, some long time fans are upset with the changes.

“I still rage. Swearing doesn’t make someone a person.”

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
