Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins is partnering up with his favorite NFL team, the Detroit Lions, to host a special fan event called ‘Ninja Night.’

The popular streamer will be at Ford Field in Detroit, Michigan on September 10 to see his Lions take on the New York Jets in the season opener.

At the game, some attending fans will also get a chance to participate in a meet-and-greet with Ninja, although it is not yet clear at what point this would take place.

The link that Ninja provides in his tweet leads to a ticketing website, where fans can purchase specially discounted tickets to the game using the promo code: NINJA.

However, it seems that the only way fans can actually get to meet Ninja is by purchasing 10 or more tickets, at which point they will still only qualify for the chance to win a meet-and-greet.

GAMERS! Tyler “Ninja” Blevins will be at Ford Field for Monday Night Football September 10th!

If you purchase 10 or more tickets, you will automatically qualify for the chance to win a Meet & Greet that night with @NINJA!

This is yet another example of how popular Ninja has actually become, and further confirmation that he is not only a celebrity in the gaming world, but in other aspects of popular culture as well.

TikTok star Dixie D’Amelio has finally dropped her long-awaited music video with rapper Wiz Khalifa, which initially sparked so much controversy among fans that she deleted a teaser for the tune two days prior to its release.

Dixie D’Amelio is more than TikTok royalty; alongside her impressive 45 followers on the viral video app, Dixie has also signed a major record deal with Hitco, releasing her own original music.

While her single ‘Be Happy’ was met with general acclaim among her fans, her subsequent song ‘One Whole Day’ was instantly met with vitriol among TikTok users, with many criticizing the star for her lyrics and singing ability.

In fact, the hate got so bad that D’Amelio promptly deleted her teaser for the song two days before its official release, sparking conversation — once again — about the brutal nature of TikTok’s userbase.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie said of the fiasco. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she added.

However, it looks like the trolls couldn’t stop her from releasing the official song on December 4, the music video for which already has 494,000 views at the time of writing — and we have to admit, it’s a certified bop! (Don’t blame us if it gets stuck in your ears for the next week, though.)

Dixie appears to have gotten over the backlash, too; she even uploaded satirical TikTok where she feigned crying as a duet to a user who mocked those currently criticizing the song.

Dixie likewise hit out at critics in a paparazzi interview on December 3, giving haters a good piece of her mind regarding the shocking amount of backlash she received.

“Everyone judges a song over the first five seconds,” the TikToker exclaimed. “I get it, but give constructive criticism. Don’t tell me to f**king go to therapy for a song you don’t like!”

(Dixie’s statement starts at 1:36)

However, it seems that reviews for ‘One Whole Day’ are still mixed — but it doesn’t look like Dixie is letting the trolls bring her down, anymore. You go girl!
