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.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
