One of the hottest topics right now in the online gaming community is that of star Twitch streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins stating that he will not be live-streaming and playing with female gamers on his channel.

After publicly discussing his decision on August 11, the popular streamer has released another statement further clarifying his position.

Ninja public comments about not wanting to stream with women turned out to be polarizing and inspired heavy debate across social media.

While some attacked him and accused him of being in the wrong, many defended his right to make his own choices, and even praised him for protecting his relationship with his wife and manager Jessica ‘JGhosty’ Blevins.

On August 13, Ninja posted another statement on his Twitter page, addressing the widespread debate about his deliberate decision.

I wanted to take a moment to address the discussion around the article that came out over the weekend. While I understand some people have implied my views [to] mean I have something against playing with women, I want to make clear the isse I’m addressing is online harassment, and my attempt to minimize it from our life. It is something that affects all streamers, especially ones that make their relationships public. I wanted to bring attention to this issue and my comments should not be characterized as anything beyond that.
Having just celebrated my one year anniversayr, my wife and my family will always be the most important thing to me and I am doing my best to protect them.
We are fans of all kind of streamers – curvyllama, kuliatv, and halieatisuto are a few of our favorites and we encourage others to check out their channels. I look forward to the opportunity to meet and play with all kinds of Fortnite players in future tournament and event.

– Tyler

Being the biggest and most well-known streamer and online gamer in the world, every single one of Ninja’s words and actions are likely to fall under the scrutiny of the masses.

Therefore, whether you agree with his decision or not, it is clear that he is prioritizing his relationship with his wife and does not want his family to be bothered by online harassment.


David Dobrik spooked after drone leaves “creepy” note at his home

Yet again, something bizarre has been dropped off at YouTuber David Dobrik’s house, this time a bag of Chipotle along with a slightly unnerving note flown into his backyard via drone.

David Dobrik has accumulated an enormous fan base on YouTube both as part of the Vlog Squad and as an independent creator. With 18.5 million subscribers, and 23.5 million followers on TikTok, he’s certainly not short of people who love his content and personality.

However, being an online personality of such a large scale comes with its lack of privacy, and that exposure to the world in turn has some bizarre side effects, as David has experienced before.

Earlier in October, the content creator was stunned to find that someone had left an actual kitten on his doorstep in a duffel bag. CCTV footage captured a mysterious stranger placing the bag at his door, but their identity could not be determined.

Clearly that incident has inspired others to try their luck at delivering something to his house without direct consent.

Mysterious drone arrives for David Dobrik

In a video uploaded to his TikTok account, David showed a small drone placing a paper bag of Chipotle in his backyard. “Bro, this is so scary. Someone f**king flew Chipotle on a drone into my backyard, I’m not f**king kidding. What if it’s a f**king bomb, what do I do?”

Also attached to the machine was a little green bag, which when opened revealed some other items along with a small orange handwritten note.

The note stated “you probably do not know who we are. But soon, the name Project better will be much more familiar. Thank you for being awesome, see you soon.”

The letter was definitely a little bit strange.

The mysterious group went on to say that “if you want to film it we’ll be at the nearest Chipotle on riverside with one picture on it. PS: the sauce is half-full because it was too heavy. Enjoy.”

While the incident appears to be relatively well-intentioned, it clearly freaked David and his friends out. The mysterious note referring to a group that will soon be “familiar” to him is certainly eerie, as is the ease at which it was able to access his yard.

It’s not yet clear whether David will really end up meeting the senders of the drone, or even if he ate the food it brought, but people certainly found it interesting as the video now has over 600,000 likes and 2.6 million views.
