The top Twitch streamer, Tyler “Ninja” Blevins has given his reasons explaining why he doesn’t play alongside female gamers and streamers.

As the most popular live streamer on Twitch, Ninja has his every move scrutinized by millions of fans and haters alike, so his decision to not game with females has sparked debate amongst the community.

Speaking to Polygon at the Samsung Unpacked event in New York, Ninja laid out exactly why he has made the very deliberate decision, a move to protect his wife and manager, Jessica “JGhosty” Blevins.

He explained that it is the only way to avoid internet trolls spinning false rumors and gossip about Ninja and other women, particularly on a platform where women are already treated (by some) differently than male streamers.

“If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we’re playing with one another, and even if there’s a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever.”

Ninja said that it was entirely his own decision not to stream with women, and wasn’t his wife’s instruction.

“That was not even her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me being, ‘I love our relationship,’ and, ‘No — I’m not even gonna put you through that.'”

One of the most well known cases of this has been the speculation around two popular Fortnite streamers Ali “Myth” Kabbani and Imane “Pokimane” Anys, who often play together.

This is exactly the kind of speculation which Ninja is trying to avoid his wife going through, and given his massive audience, the rumors, speculation and ‘clickbait’ would be exponentially worse for Ninja and JGhosty than for most.

“The only way to avoid that [gossip] is to not play with them at all.”

So there you have it, Ninja avoids streaming and playing with other female gamers to get away from the constant rumor mill that often rears its ugly head caused by even the slightest interaction between a male and female streamer.

Dixie D’Amelio’s fans think her latest song, ‘One Whole Day,’ is a diss track aimed at her ex-boyfriend, Griffin Johnson, but she claimed it isn’t and explained what it’s really about.

Dixie D’Amelio rocked the world with the release of her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’ The lyrics tell how she had a falling out with a boyfriend but was only sad for one whole day and shed a single tear.

Her fans assume the song is about her break up with Griffin Johnson and think it’s her way of throwing him some shade. However, Dixie D’Amelio recently answered some questions about the song on YouTube, and she explained that it’s not a diss track.

Dixie D’Amelio collaborated with Wiz Khalifa to produce her latest song, ‘One Whole Day.’

“Being sad is not what the song is about,” she said, without mentioning Griffin Johnson’s name. “The song is basically about how I am only going to be sad for one day from a breakup.”

“When you are treated in a way where you’re not number one or a number one priority or shown true care and love and affection more than anyone else, there’s no point in being upset about it for more than one day,” she added.

It’s reasonable to assume this might have been an issue in Dixie D’Amelio’s relationship with Griffin Johnson. Either way, the point is, it’s more about the personal realization she had rather than the break-up itself.

Dixie D’Amelio and Griffin Johnson were together for a while, but things didn’t work out.

“The song does mean a lot to me because I’ve spent a lot of my life being upset about things for too long,” she said. “If a person… cannot treat me with respect… then I don’t want them in my life, and I will not be upset about it for more than one whole day.”

“That’s kind of my idea of the song. It’s not a diss in any way. It’s… showing self-love… to myself,” she added. “It’s important to love yourself. It’s important to know you’re worth, so that’s… what it’s all about.”

Segment begins at 1:30.

‘One Whole Day’ might refer to some of the experiences and feelings Dixie D’Amelio had during her break-up with Griffin Johnson, but it’s not intended to be a diss track in any way, shape, or form.

The song’s meaning runs much deeper than that. It’s about feeling a sense of self-love and self-worth during a break-up, no matter how sad it can be in the short-term.
