Twitch superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has been vocal during the drama between FaZe Clan and Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney, poking fun at his fellow streamer after noticing a new trend.

Tfue revealed that he would be pursuing a lawsuit against the organization over the terms of his contract which he described as “oppressive” in order to start his own team which caused chaos in the esports community.

Ninja is one streamer who has experienced similar growth to Tfue, and noted that FaZe did play a massive part in boosting and developing the 21-year-old into the star attraction he is today.

The former Halo professional revealed he had noticed a new trend in Fortnite Battle Royale following the recent drama with FaZe – suggesting more people were adding ‘Ninja’ into their in-game tag.

Ninja was mocked by friend Benjamin ‘DrLupo’ Lupo who reminded him that he doesn’t own the name and Ninja responded with a playful jab at Tfue, referencing a viral meme.

“I just said I don’t own the name Ninja,” he responded. “You know what, call me ‘Tsue’ dude.

“He protec’, he attac’, but more importantly, he did not read contrac’.”

Eager to not fuel any further drama, Tfue refused to react to Ninja’s comments, stating that anyone can talk “shit” about him all they like.

He said: “I keep myself out of it [the drama]. People can talk shit about me all they want. I don’t mind.”

The two biggest Fortnite Battle Royale players have met plenty of times during their gaming careers, most recently during a World Cup qualifier, where Ninja came out on top.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
