It’s still battle royale that is his home ground, though, regardless of where he finds himself outside of streaming. Yet, not everyone is a fan of his or Epic Games’ popular title – and some have made that pretty clear in his newest YouTube collaboration with WIRED Magazine.

NinjaNinja swapped Twitch for Mixer and remains as one of the biggest streamers around.

The pair joined forces for another installment in WIRED’s popular Tech Support series, with Ninja helping people out with Fortnite via a Twitter question and answer session. 

As it stands, the October 30 upload has been viewed over 129,000 times with nearly 6,000 likes, but with over 3,300 dislikes. Many of the top comments on the video question why WIRED partnered with Ninja on a video, while others have noted the strange dislike ratio.

Yet, it appears as if history is repeating itself all over again.

As of writing, Ninja’s video has been hit by a string of dislikes.

Ninja and WIRED joined up for an interview prior to his infamous New Year’s celebrations in New York, with that video also receiving a slue of dislikes compared to likes. 

One Redditor, TheTroyFields, stepped forward to explain why that was the case, adding that people were doing it in order to troll Ninja’s name and brand. However, despite the negativity, it wouldn’t hurt Ninja all that much anyway.

Regardless of how popular the streamer is or Fortnite, there are always going to be people who aren’t massive fans of him, or the game, for one reason or another.

That likely won’t bother him or Epic Games all that much anyway considering their popularity are on different levels to any of their competitors.

Jake Paul has already set his sights on new boxing opponents such as Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis and even his brother Logan Paul, after his impressive second round K.O. victory over former NBA star Nate Robinson.

Following the highly anticipated Tyson vs Jones Jr boxing card on November 28, YouTube star Jake Paul came away from the night as one of the biggest winners after his win over Nate Robinson went viral.

The Calabasas-based content creator put on a strong performance in the co-main event with a knockout in the second round, moving to a 2-0 record as a professional boxer, and immediately began issuing challenges for his next bout.

Conor McGregor was one of the fighters Jake Paul challenged to a boxing fight.

During the post-fight interview, Jake Paul revealed that he would soon be looking to take a step up in competition after his time off, even challenging some of the biggest MMA stars in the world.

He explained that he would be interested in taking on Conor McGregor, a two-division UFC champion, as well as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu star and undefeated Bellator fighter, Dillon Danis, who he has had an ongoing feud with.

“I’m taking this seriously,” Paul explained, predicting KO victories over both athletes, “There’s a long list of opponents that I want. Conor McGregor, Dillon Danis, I’m going to knock them both out.”

While many viewers claimed it could be too soon for Jake to take on life-long fighters, he also shared a list of other content creators he’d like to meet in the ring, including his brother Logan Paul and YouTube rival KSI.

“There’s my brother, there’s KSI on the line, Austin McBroom.” he admitted, “I want to be in this sport a long time. I’m in love with it, so why not.”

KSI was quick to respond to the challenge, claiming that he was not impressed with Jake’s performance on the night, even though he had earned multiple knockdowns during the bout.

Whether he will get to fight any of these stars in the coming months remains unclear, but he has certainly generated a lot of hype around his name following his impressive win.
