Popular Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is playing wingman to former CWL caster and streamer Jack ‘CouRage’ Dunlop in a hilarious attempt to woo American singer-songwriter Ariana Grande.

It’s no secret that CouRage has a crush on Grande, thanks to his hilarious Tweet asking the singer out on a date – or even for a chance to be her backup dancer. 


Now, even Ninja is helping him out, taking on the role of a true wingman by reaching out to the Pop star over Twitter on November 21.

Ninja tagged Grande in the hilarious Tweet asking her to give his buddy a fighting chance. 


CouRage retweeted Ninja’s request – along with two photoshopped pictures of himself and Grande at fictional weddings.

“I just want to be Ariana Grande’s ‘next’,” he Tweeted afterward, referencing the singer’s new single, ‘Thank You, Next.’



Ninja’s Tweet garnered a slew of hilarious responses from personalities across the esports realm, with the likes of FaZe Attach, Nate Hill, and Dakotaz chiming in.

“Jack may actually have a chance now,” FaZe Attach commented.

“She’ll see soon that Jack is the ‘next’ she needs,” eUnited CoD pro Jordan Kaplan replied.


Even Twitter Gaming joined in on the fun, replying to the thread with a gif of a man eating popcorn, as if watching as the drama unfolded.

This isn’t the first time CouRage has Tweeted about his feelings toward Grande, either – in fact, he regularly talks about his crush on the singer, and was even part of a hilarious Twitter debacle that involved Vine star and comedian Dwarf Mamba.


Mamba asked Grande out in a humorous Tweet on November 18, where he referenced his height and insinuating that Grande should date him due to her own relatively short stature. CouRage responded to his post in good spirits, asking that Mamba let him have a shot, first.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

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.
