Popular Apex Legends – and the internet still isn’t over it, as evidenced by Tyler ‘Ninja‘ Blevins’ comments two months later.

While Alinity is a well-known face on Twitch, Ninja is one of the biggest faces on Mixer, leaving over 14.7 million followers on Twitch before moving to the platform in early August.

Between hosting a massive New Year’s event in Times Square andFortnite stream on September 24, Ninja claimed that a fan had asked him about releasing potential shirts for TwitchCon 2019 – a question that allowed Ninja the perfect opportunity to make a lighthearted jab at his former platform.

“Yeah, I’m gonna have a shirt that’s gonna have a picture of a cat getting thrown,” Ninja answered. “And then a picture of a cat spitting out what appears to be water. It’s gonna say, ‘TwitchCon 2019.’”

Ninja’s comments reference Alinity’s cat-tossing debacle from mid-July, which was further fueled after critics discovered footage of the streamer appearing to feed her cat vodka during a previous stream.

Alinity was later investigated by the Saskatoon SPCA, who “determined that there was no malicious intent in any of the reported incidents, and the owner expressed genuine remorse for her actions.”

Despite the mass outrage around her viral clip, Alinity was never banned from the site due to the scandal, leading many to question Twitch’s moderation in regards to its Community Guidelines.

Ninja’s “TwitchCon” jab follows his “disgust” with the platform in early August, after Twitch used his account to advertise other channels.

With Blevins having moved on to greener pastures, Twitch continues to undergo scrutiny, with streamers being banned for unexplained reasons like showing an album cover while watching another streamer’s broadcast or unexplained “fraudulent charges.”

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch: Pokimane
Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
