Family Feud host Steve Harvey showcased how much money Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins makes from streaming in a hilarious monologue to his audience, all while Ninja fact-checked.

It’s no surprise to viewers of Ninja that he makes a lot of money while streaming but it can be harder for people on the outside looking in to understand.

Steve Harvey did his best to explain to the crowd what Ninja does and how he makes money doing it, even if he got a couple of things wrong and had some missteps along the way.

Twitch: NinjaNinja is arguably the face of Twitch.

Tyler the who?

“I was introducing this um dude from um uh uh Fortnite star,” Harvey said. “And then, when I was reading it, the teleprompter glitched right quick and I said ‘Please welcome Tyler the N-.'”

Perhaps the teleprompter was saving him from making a mistake as he would be introduced as Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins rather than Tyler the Ninja.

Harvey asked the crowd if anyone knew who Ninja was and it sounded like not many people had. Luckily, the comedian was there to give an explanation.

“You know, he was on Family Feud a year ago and I asked him what he did,” Harvey said. “He said ‘I play video games’ and I said ‘Man, you need to a get a fuckin’ job.'”

The next day at the Super Bowl, Harvey talked about how he found out how much Ninja actually makes.

“The kid makes, and I found out that night, he makes 1 million, 1.5 million dollars a month.”

Ninja said on his stream that isn’t true and indicated Harvey’s comments were a slight exaggeration. Harvey explained that viewers would donate money just to get a simple thank you from Ninja and to have their name on the screen.

To his credit, Ninja said Harvey did a pretty decent job explaining everything to the crowd. Of course, Harvey had to get a jab at his kids in there after seeing how much money is really up for grabs from playing video games.

“I’m looking at my kids like what the fuck ya’ll been doing.”

While these numbers might have been true for much of 2018, Ninja’s sub count and viewership have come down back to earth in 2019.

He’s still easily one of the most popular Twitch channels but you don’t see him boasting over 100,000 subscribers anymore.

It’s no secret that TikTok star Charli D’Amelio has a dedicated fanbase, but some supporters began accusing another TikToker of copying her hairstyle — and the Queen was not happy about these allegations.

Charli D’Amelio is the most-followed content creator on TikTok, having reached a whopping 90 million followers since rising to the top of the platform in March.

Boasting her own drink at Dunkin’ Donuts, her own makeup collection with Morphe and her own line of Hollister hoodies, the youngest D’Amelio sister has amassed quite the empire in a short time — as well as a seriously intense fanbase.

While hopping on popular trends is quite the norm these days, some viewers have accused innocent TikTokers of copying Charli, even alleging that older sister Dixie had “copied” her nose surgery.

This behavior hasn’t stopped, it seems, as other fans claimed that TikToker Madi Monroe had copied Charli’s hairstyle after dying her blonde hair with streaks of rose gold (or pink, depending on how you look at it).

Charli dyed her own black hair a shade of purple underneath, and while it could be true that other influencers have taken inspiration from her new ‘do, the TikTok Queen wasn’t too pleased with those piling on Monroe for her fashion choices.

In fact, Charli claimed that other names like Avani Gregg and Hayley had kickstarted the trend by dying their hair before she’d even made the decision to go purple, as told in a pointed response to the online outrage.

Charli D'Amelio decries users accusing Madi Monroe of copying her hairstyle.

“Hayley and Avani dyed their hair like this before me,” she explained in a TikTok comment. “I did not start this trend. Also, who cares? Madi looks amazing as per usual and she is rocking the pink hair.”

Madi followed up Charli’s comment with a statement of her own, showing tons of love to the purple-haired TikTok guru.

“Why is this even tea?” she said of the issue. “Hell yeah, Char rocks this hairstyle. That comment wasn’t supposed to be rude but NGL I’D LOVE TO LOOK EXACTLY LIKE CHARLI SHE’S THE BADDEST!”

It looks like there’s no bad blood between these two influencers, who have had enough of the made-up drama surrounding their hairstyle choices.
