Mixer star Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins shut down YouTuber Corinna Kopf as the dispute between the world’s most famous gamer and Brett ‘Dakotaz‘ Hoffman is taking off well into the holiday festivities.

After a series of back-and-forths between Dakotaz and Ninja sparked a flurry of retorts around the state of Epic Games’ battle royale Fortnite, more and more influencers have been chiming in with every new entry in the ongoing feud.

A day before Christmas, it seems like audiences are going to have a helpful serving of drama especially after Tyler ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s girlfriend Kopf hit out at Ninja for a “troll” that she thinks isn’t in tune to his December 20 address.

Kopf hit back at Ninja, saying that his screenshot showing he was blocked from viewing Dakotaz tweet with a caption of “Merry Christmas” was “petty” for the Fortnite streamer to post.

“What happened to keeping it positive in your whole speech?” she said. “I guess petty doesn’t fall into that category, huh?”

In his video, Ninja stressed the importance of influencers giving positive constructive criticism when giving their opinions on an aspect of a game they don’t like.

Many see the video as directly inspired by Dakotaz’s December 19 message calling the battle royale “hot garbage”; in the 2-minute clip Ninja took a stand against the online vitriol that routinely crops up around trending titles.

This is where Kopf and Ninja disagree, as the Mixer streamer cast aside Kopf’s criticism since his message was “not really pertaining to trolling people who I thought were friends on Twitter.”

Shortly after, the Instagram influencer played down Ninja’s claim that she was trying to insult him, instead noting that he should “spread [positivity] in all aspects” to keep with his message.

In light of that, Ninja said he felt “a little hurt and taken back” by Dakotaz “handling” of the situation, so he didn’t see his tweet as negative. Kopf maintained her position.

“We know you were being petty and that’s okay, just some constructive criticism for you!” she said.

With some of the most vocal influencers in the Fortnite streaming space chiming in with every reply, it doesn’t seem like it’ll be long before others claim their place in the growing dispute.

Meet the TikToker going viral for saying “Charli D’Amelio” 100,000 times

A TikToker has taken over the internet for saying the name of the platform’s most-followed content creator, Charli D’Amelio 100,000 times in a row — and he’s not the first one to lay claim to fame in this manner.

TikTok star Devin Caherly has caught the eye of social media users around the globe after taking on a jaw-dropping challenge, which he announced in a video on November 29.

Claiming that he would say the name of Charli D’Amelio — the site’s most popular creator with over 101 million followers — 100,00 times, his quest soon became a viral sensation, with his original announcement video garnering over 309,000 likes at the time of writing.

Caherly kept track of his project by using an online counter, which he would press each time he said D’Amelio’s name. However, he didn’t ask fans to just take his word for it; he even live-streamed the entire ordeal, but it didn’t turn out as planned.

Unfortunately for Caherly, as soon as he hit the 999,991 mark, his counter suddenly reset, leaving him completely devastated (although we have to admit, his failure made for a pretty funny TikTok).

@devincaherlyI spent 18 hours straight saying @charlidamelio and right before I hit 100,000 this happens 🤦🏻‍♂️♬ original sound – Devin Caherly

This isn’t his first experiment of this nature, either; Caherly has also said Charli D’Amelio’s name for every ten likes he’s gotten, as well as every ten comments within a 24-hour period.

Caherly’s endeavors ring similar to those of massively popular YouTuber Jimmy ‘Mr Beast’ Donaldson, who has also said the names of social media stars like ‘PewDiePie’ and Logan Paul 100,000 times in the past.

That’s not the only way in which Caherly is similar to Mr Beast; he’s also given out quite a bit of cash and gift cards for his 2.7 million fans — although we can’t say it’s the same as Mr Beast opening a free bank or tipping waitresses in legitimate gold bars.

Either way, it seems that Caherly has opened up quite a career for himself, and we can’t wait to see what the future holds in store for this young creative.
