During a recent stream, Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, responded to a fan who said they thought the streamer didn’t need anymore money.
Ninja has become one of, if not the most popular Twitch streamer on Earth in 2018, and he often attracts over 100,000 viewers to his regular Fortnite streams.
Recently, Ninja unveiled a new, state-of-the-art streaming room, which could contribute to some fans feeling like he might be plenty well off.
Ninja told viewers that’s not how he sees things though.
“I’ve had people unsubscribe from my stream because ‘I make too much’, ok, it’s not about enjoying content or being part of a community that I’ve been building for the last eight years,” the streamer told chat.
“One of the most things I see is ‘Ninja doesn’t need anymore money,’” he continued. “I don’t know what people think I’m spending it on, like I’m trying to set my family up for life man.”
Ninja was responding to a user in Twitch chat who said: “I mean...when you have an office and house and wife like yours...you don’t really need any more money.” To which Ninja replied, “That’s just so not true man.”
He goes on to wonder where the idea has come from that people can't subscribe to him since he has a lot of subs already, saying "are people going to just stop buying [Drake's] albums or listening to his music because he makes too much?"
Ninja is undoubtedly one of the highest paid Twitch streamers ever, so a few fans upset about his income most likely won’t hurt his bottom line.
