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.

Mr Beast struggles through ridiculous 24-hour ice house challenge

Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson is no stranger to over the top challenges but his latest video was one of the most difficult he’s ever filmed, as he struggled to endure 24 hours in a house made completely of ice.

While Mr Beast loves to giveaway crazy prizes to competitors, friends, and even just strangers on the street, he also loves a good challenge. From 24 hours in a prison to surviving on a deserted island, the popular YouTuber has done just about everything.

Looking to push the boundaries even further, his latest task was to endure the freezing cold for a full day. It wasn’t just a cold room with the air conditioning cranked, it was an entire house made of ice. Brick by brick the structure fully was completely encased in ice to keep Mr Beast as cold as possible.

Everything from the chairs to the toilet was also frozen solid. Mere hours into the attempt it had quickly become “one of the harder challenges [he’s] ever done.”

A few hours into the challenge and Mr Beast had to start getting regular checks to ensure he wasn’t in proper danger.

So what was the motive to remain in the ice house? If Mr Beast survived all 24 hours, his closest friends would have to cover themselves “in syrup and feathers” in public. On the other hand, if he left early, the same punishment would be applied.

After a few hours of pacing back and forth to keep his body active, he bargained for a pair of gloves. A nearby crew member handed them over and agreed to a $10,000 deal to be Mr Beast’s “spy” throughout the challenge.

This was certainly one of the more unique challenges on the channel as the gimmick never let up. Mr Beast was even forced to eat a stack of pancakes with a fork made entirely of ice. At the 12 hour mark, he conceded that “it was brutal.”

“Literally the coldest I’ve ever been in my entire life,” he said after the fact. “I was miserable.” Despite the odds being stacked against him and his friends trying to make the challenge even harder, he pushed through to the very end.

Days after revealing his most expensive video ever, it turns out this rather simple challenge was quite costly as well. 

“This video cost me around $300,000 to make. For the price that it cost me to build an ice house, I could have bought a real house.”
