In a comedic turn of events, Ninja’s wife, Jessica Blevins, took hold of his phone, jokingly claiming that he would NOT be leaking his number.

Although Ninja did not release the exact time he will be posting his number to the web, fans are already clamoring for a chance to text Mixer’s massive celebrity addition, with both top internet personalities and fans alike joking about the possible ensuing shenanigans.

Ninja isn’t the first internet start to leak his own digits, either: popular YouTuber Jake Paul likewise released his phone number in 2019, leading to some hilarious shenanigans that he posted to Twitter and in various videos.

Ninja’s “crazy” announcement follows his major move to Mixer - a development that came as a shock to many of his fans, seeing as how he had over 14.7 million followers on Twitch before finding his new home.

Despite potential losses, Jessica Blevins claims that both she and Ninja were willing to lose views, stating that they were confident in their decision to transition to Mixer.

“We are stoked about it, but even if Ty had 5k viewers, we were ready and confident with this move,” she Tweeted of the issue. “Aligns with what we believe in & wanted for the brand <3”

With Ninja’s massive career moves in mind, it looks like the streamer is seeking out more ways to reach his audience - even if it means getting a ton of phone calls!


UPDATE 4:10PM PST August 11:
