Ninja throws a cheeky shot at Fortnite pro Myth: “He fell off a lot”

Fortnite superstar Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins couldn’t help but take a dig at Ali ‘Myth’ Kabbani while on a livestream from Poland on March 10.

Ninja and Myth have shared a turbulent friendship since the two became known for their Fortnite talents late in 2017, with controversies over Ninja not wanting to play with Myth given his tendency to use profanity in his language.

Regardless, the two have remained good friends and can be seen occasionally still playing together on their Twitch streams. Despite not necessarily being considered the top two players in the world anymore, both still enjoy plenty of Fortnite and have impressive in-game stats.

Ninja/TwitchNinja recently streamed in Lederhosen to signify being in Austria.

Their affable rivalry continued as Ninja, while live streaming from Poland on March 10, took a friendly shot at Myth, recalling when the TSM player fell to his death at the Vegas tournament, joking that he had “fell off a lot”.

Ninja was being asked by co-hosts about the ‘Ninja Vegas’ Fortnite tournament that took place in April 2018. He started by saying that he was surprised the tournament was able to draw so many “incredible players” to the event, going on to joke that “Myth was there, obviously… he, you know, fell off a lot.”

If you couldn’t tell, Ninja is clearly joking, shown in his reaction after the comments in which he coughs suggestively. “Shoutout to my Myth,” he smiles, before offering an apology: “Sorry man.”

Myth’s skill as a Fortnite player can’t be doubted, but it’s perhaps fair to say that the competition has now caught up with him, especially when it comes to building, a mechanic which he is credited with innovating in the early days of Fortnite’s popularity.

Singer-songwriter Halsey is pregnant – and social media, from influencers and YouTubers to countless fans, has lit up with congratulations for the beloved cultural sensation.

Ashley ‘Halsey’ Nicolette Frangipane is an American singer-songwriter with Grammy nominations, Billboard accolades and, above all else, a feverish social media following. Known for her activism and eclecticism, the musician has become a cultural icon with fans across the world.

That variety of fans is not restrained to just social media stans, either, as the singer has apparently amassed a ton of appreciation from fellow influencers. Some of the biggest names from YouTube and social media have popped up congratulating her, nestled between messages from the 36.9 million followers Halsey boasts throughout Instagram and Twitter. 

Posting a “surprise” Instagram carousel of baby bump pictures, the 26-year-old’s comment section is filled with verified check marks sending their love and joy. From established models (and fellow activists) like Emily Ratajkowski to YouTube superstars like James Charles, the support has been nothing short of overflowing.

In the replies to Halsey’s viral IG post, influencer Gabbie Hanna was joined by TikTok legend Addison Rae by sending an ecstatic “congratulations” message. Singer Olivia Rodrigo, whose “Drivers License” track has gone viral on TikTok, joined in too, but wasn’t satisfied with just one message.

In all caps (the pinnacle of excitement), Rodrigo sent a “YESSSS” before following up with a “SENDING U SO MUCH LOVE.”

Similarly uppercased, Charles chimed in with a reply that seems to concisely echo the sentiments shared by all of Halsey’s fans and friends: “CONGRATULATIONS AHHH.”

Aside from being happy about the idea of a mini version of Halsey entering the world, close fans are likely well-aware of how meaningful the moment is for her. The singer has been candid about her past with infertility and her desire for a child, as a 2015 miscarriage prompted the song “More” on her Manic album.

In the wake of such a harrowing history with the desire to bear a child, the news of Halsey’s pregnancy is certainly cause for celebration. Caps-locked congratulations are most certainly in order and few, influencers and fans alike, have held back in rejoicing with the singer and her boyfriend, screenwriter Alev Aydin.

“More,” too, can now be played with added joy. Some of its more expressive lyrics take on a new dimension, as a foreseeing welcome to her baby: “And when you decide it’s your time to arrive, I’ve loved you for all of my life.”
