Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins and Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner have butted heads while grinding Fortnite, after the latter sparked the heated exchange by bringing up Mixer as the pair joked about “respect” with Tim ‘TimTheTatman’ Betar.

As four of the biggest Fortnite streamers around right now, the squad normally go quite well in-game, and usually pair the battle royale gameplay with a hefty helping of lighthearted and entertaining banter at each other as they play.

During their January 2 grind, however, Reverse2k seemed to hit a nerve when he brought Ninja’s move to Mixer into the discussion. Ninja, who moved to Microsoft’s streaming service in August, lashed out, demanding an apology.

Mixer: NinjaNinja was less than pleased when Reverse2k brought up Mixer in the middle of their Fortnite grind.

The four streamers were joking about paying taxes, with TimTheTatman flexing his “decade of streaming” to call for respect from Reverse. 

Ninja weighed in on Tim’s side, suggesting there was “no reason” to respect younger streamers if they “didn’t have respect for us” – all in jest, of course – until the Mixer star added the youngsters were trying to “take territory.”

“Dude, we’re not coming into Mixer,” Reverse fired back, apparently of the opinion he was just adding into the jokes the team had been laughing about. Ninja didn’t exactly see it that way, and snapped, lashing out at the Twitch streamer.

Twitter: NinjaNinja arced up when teammate Reverse2k brought up his major Mixer move from last year.

“That’s not even funny, you’re trying to make it f***ing personal dude,” Ninja suggested in an annoyed tone. Reverse disagreed, but Ninja wasn’t convinced.

“Shut up bro… bringing up the specific platform in this discussion is irrelevant… do it again, I can’t wait,” Ninja replied. “You think you’re so clever!”

The Mixer star added that he didn’t see any reason for Reverse to have even touched on his Mixer move. They had been talking taxes, not platforms, and he seemed offended he’d been singled out from the Twitch stars he was playing with.

“I will apologize to you right now if you tell me why you said that,” he continued. “Tell me why you brought up Mixer right then. Tell me! You didn’t bring it up for any reason whatever except to try and insult me as if moving here is a bad decision.”

“Why did you bring it up?” he added, before repeating the question. The group sat in awkward silence for a moment, continuing to loot in Fortnite, before TimTheTatman interjected with his own thoughts on Reverse’s comments.

“I don’t think it’s that deep bro, it was just a bit of playful banter,” he said, clearly attempting to break the tension. Ninja seemed on the warpath though, and added one final barb about Reverse “always bringing up Mixer” before falling silent.

The squad of streamers didn’t touch on the topic again as they continued to play, but the damage was already done – Ninja seemed to be silently seething, while the others awkwardly returned to their conversations.

The explosive confrontation also seemed to call time on the four playing together for the evening, as they played out a few more games with communications kept to a bare minimum, before some logged off and others changed games.

This isn’t the first time recently that Ninja has become embroiled in an argument either, though his tiff with Reverse probably isn’t at the same level as his ongoing feud with Twitch streamer Brett ‘Dakotaz’ Hoffman.

Ninja called the Fortnite streamer out for “talking sh*t” about the battle royale, and two have been duking it out on social media ever since.

And at the end of the day, while Ninja may get a little defensive over Mixer being brought up by his Twitch teammates, he may have the last laugh.

According to reports, he and fellow convert Michael ‘shroud’ Grzesiek are set to make as much as $40 million over the next three to five years, so it’s not like he’s having a bad time with the Microsoft streaming platform, financially at least.

YouTube star Logan Paul has confirmed he and Josie Canseco are no longer together in an unplanned reveal on the Impaulsive podcast with Mike Majlak.

Logan and Josie have had a rocky relationship, separating in mid-February, and rekindling their romance in May. Logan previously described their relationship as “f**king serious. It’s pretty serious.”

But in recent weeks, fans had been speculating as to whether the pair had broken up after rumors circulated, prompted by the two unfollowing and then refollowing each other on Instagram.

But in the November 24 episode of Impaulsive, Logan confirmed the rumors were true. Mike Majlak, Logan, and George Janko were discussing the art of sliding into girls’ DMs, and appeared to accidentally land on the topic of Logan’s break-up with Josie.

After Mike briefly brought up the topic of why Logan would be chatting to girls, he hesitantly revealed that Josie was in fact his ex. “It might come off a little odd, these exchanges I’m having with women who aren’t my girlfriend…ex-girlfriend.”

The YouTuber added that he’d rather not reveal the details of their split, preferring to keep this part of his life private. “I’ve always really valued the privacy of my relationship because my life is already pretty public so I don’t feel like either Josie or myself needs to give an explanation if we don’t feel like it.”

The trio also discussed how hard it is when a relationship is in the public eye when fans make assumptions if either side is spotted out with other people. Logan said, “It is hard when you have a relationship that is so much in the public eye.

“You leave people guessing, like when I’m on a podcast and talking like I’m single, but I am,” before confirming that “It was a special time for both of our lives. It just didn’t end up working out.”

Logan also explained he was finding it hard to move on, “I’m not f***king around. I’m not even at flirt stage yet. There’s a hump to get over before I feel comfortable being back at it.”

In the meantime, Logan revealed that he’d bought an adorable puppy to focus all his love and attention on before trying to date again.
