Ninja hits back at Tfue for “insulting” his Mixer viewership

Streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has spoken out against fans and fellow streamers who have criticized him for his dwindling viewership figures on Mixer compared to Twitch, particularly from Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney.

In their most recent public bust-up, of which there have been many, Tfue mocked Ninja’s viewership on his new platform of choice, which has seen a significant drop since his high-flying days on Twitch.

It’s no secret that Tfue and Ninja don’t see eye-to-eye, but Blevins has not taken kindly to this dig at his channel’s numbers, speaking out during a stream on June 2.

For a recap of Ninja and Tfue’s turbulent history, first watch our breakdown of their rivalry:

After a viewer prompted Ninja to comment on his concurrent viewing numbers, he said “I don’t care. So many people, it’s their number one roast. Both times Tfue tried insulting me, he’s talking about ‘how I need clout, my views are going down.’

“Taking pictures of the lowest that my stream numbers are every day. Dude, I’m still pulling on Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, millions of views. When I upload Fortnite to YouTube, I get millions of views.

Seemingly responding directly to Tfue, Ninja continued, “I’m doing just fine man. Just because my livestream numbers are down because I’m on a platform that contains less than 5% total hours livestreaming watched a year.”

He went on to say that pulling 10,000 concurrent viewers on Mixer is akin to pulling 80-90,000 viewers on Twitch, due to the already larger viewership base that naturally exists on Twitch.

He also highlights Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek, another of Twitch’s most popular channels who moved to Mixer. “The fact shroud and I can stream tournaments and pull 10,000 viewers or more on Mixer […] is incredible.”

He also criticized other figures in the scene for mocking Mixer in general, in particular calling out esports journalist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau, who has often joked about Mixer’s comparatively low viewers.

“I’ve said this before, like Slasher dude, he’s trolling, but it doesn’t matter,” Ninja explained. “Every time there’s a huge live event going on, he’s like ‘2 million viewers watching on Twitch, 1 million on YouTube, seven and a half on Mixer.”

“Moving to Mixer was massive, and it wasn’t just for me,” Ninja concludes, “I didn’t do it just for me either. One of the main reasons was that if we do this, it’s going to set the precedent that a lot of platforms are going to have start paying to keep, and paying people to move, platforms.”

While Ninja’s viewership has undoubtedly seen a massive drop since moving to Mixer (as has shroud’s), he clearly still feels it was the right move in the long run, and not just for himself. Many speculated that he simply moved for the financial incentive offered by Microsoft’s platform, but he argues there is more to it than that.


Twitch streamer Jadeyanh terrified after stalker hijacks broadcast

Twitch star Jadeyanh had a terrifying night after a stalker kept harassing her by ordering food and even calling the police to her house.

The Germany-based streamer has quite an audience on the platform boasting over 200,000 followers. Now, it seems like one of them has begun to harass the Twitch personality.

During a November 23 broadcast, the streamer’s door began to ring prompting her to go answer it. While she didn’t take the camera with her, she soon revealed food she never ordered was delivered.

“Okay, I guess you’re watching,” she began, addressing her stalker directly. “I have a stalker and that person keeps ordering food for me. This is now the third time the person did that. Officially, please stop doing that.”

As it turns out, the individual had previously ordered 25 pizzas and had them delivered to Jadeyanh’s house.

“I’m shaking. I haven’t left my apartment in days because I’m terrified of doing my groceries,” she added. “So please, stop doing that. I feel like I’m in a prison.”

The streamer went on to explain that her neighbor, who is also a follower, sometimes opens up her packages without her consent. Now, she has another follower who is harassing her with food.

As she took a sip of her drink, her doorbell started ringing so she got up to answer it, but couldn’t bring herself to open the door because the light outside wasn’t on.

Eventually, right before Jadeyanh ended the stream, firefighters showed up at her door because someone told them there was a gas leak and then the police were coming.

“I don’t know who the f**k you are, but it’s your number you called them with and we’re going to get your f**king ass, you dumbass!” she exclaimed. “What the f**k is wrong with you? 25 pizzas! Twenty f**king five!”

At this point, Jadeyanh was so distressed she decided to end the stream, but soon after on Twitter revealed that since she did, six more deliveries have come for her.

“I was stalked when I was living with my grandparents. I’m being stalked in my new apartment after only 2 months of living here. I just want to rest. I’m so tired of everything,” she said in a follow-up tweet.

Hopefully, the police can get to the bottom of this so the streamer can finally start to feel safe again and not have her broadcasts ruined by stalkers.
