Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Mixer star and Fortnite veteran, has hilariously hit back at players trying to roast him in a clip that has since gone viral on social media. 

Despite his unparalleled popularity, Ninja has had to deal with more than his fair share of negativity from the gaming community. It seems many are jealous of the success and wealth he has accumulated, but Blevins has now responded with a pretty incredible comeback.

On April 17, while streaming Valorant’s Beta alongside some of fellow streamers TimTheTatman and DrLupo, Ninja hit back at viewers in jaw-dropping fashion.

Viewers still poke fun at Ninja’s move to Mixer, which happened in August 2019.

“Literally every game that I four-man or five-man with relevant people,” he said. “It’s just, within the first two rounds, an insult about Mixer to me, something about Fortnite ‘you’re trash’, or they plug their Twitch stream.”

He explained that the trash-talk continues throughout the game, with people targeting him with Fortnite “sh*t talking”.

“It’s like dude, I can literally purchase the bank that your house is being loaned out to,” he joked. “And f**king foreclose your house, and then you can’t talk sh*t to me because you won’t have internet!”

As Blevins brilliantly hit back at those trying to roast him, long time friend and fellow streamer TimTheTatman could be heard in hysterics in the background.

With Dr Lupo asking if there’s a Dexerto article getting written up on it – (yes there is, Ben) – Tim shared his shock at just how deep Ninja went.

“I don’t know, maybe,” Tim replied, still laughing. “I gotta be honest bro, I was like ‘I wonder where he’s going with this’ and then you went way above where I thought you were gonna go. I knew you were gonna roast, but I didn’t know you were gonna like… roast.”

The clip quickly went viral on Twitter, with fans applauding Ninja for his incredible, although brutal, comeback.

While not to be taken too seriously, Ninja’s comments highlight the incredible success he has accumulated off the back of playing video games, and that he’s not afraid to hit back if he feels people are overstepping the mark.

YouTuber Jake Paul and former UFC star Ben Askren are set to take to the boxing ring on April 17, but they’re already in a war of words ahead of the bout.

It’s no Conor McGregor, but Jake Paul is going big for his next boxing bout.

After taking down Nate Robinson with relative ease, the YouTube star turned hopeful boxer will take to the ring against Ben Askren on April 17.

However, in the lead up to the fight, the two have already thrown punches over text.

Ben Askren leaked DMs between the two on February 24, claiming “this next generation has some really bad role models.”

“Hey Jake seriously were you even trying against Ben [Darmstadt]? That was pathetic. Hope you try a little bit harder in our fight,” the former UFC fighter opened with in the exchange.

“Hiya bubba! So good to hear from you! I know Masvidal gave you brain damage so I’m guessing you meant to ask if I was even trying against Nate,” Paul replied.

“We’re going to get you through this fight nice and fast so you can retire after.”

Askren clarified that he was talking about Ben Darmstadt, before Jake Paul went on a tangent, asking his opponents if he’s ever taken drugs, saying he needs “help taking his edge off.”

While Askren ignored most of Paul’s questions, he had the final jab ahead of the bout.

“You gave up here like you’re going to give up in our fight. You don’t have the heart. Please don’t back out of our fight.”

Jake Paul vs Ben Askren is locked in for April 17, and is set to be one of the biggest PPV fights in history.
