After a public feud between streaming stars Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney and Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, Jessica Blevins, Ninja’s wife and manager, has accused Tfue of purposefully trying to feud with her husband because he’s in dire straits financially.

The ordeal began after Tfue accidentally leaked the private phone number of YouTuber Mr Beast, as he co-streamed the Rock, Paper, Scissors charity event that was meant to be streamed exclusively on Mr Beast’s channel.

Ninja criticized Tfue both for streaming the event on his personal Twitch, rather than directing viewers to the main YouTube stream, as well as the accidental leak of Mr Beast’s number.

Ninja and Tfue have a strained relationship at the best of times.

Although Tfue apologized to Mr Beast, and donated $10,000 to the cause, he was quick to hit back at Ninja on Twitter. He said “Ninja shouldn’t be talking sh*t because he’s a p**sy and needs to keep his god damn mouth shut.”

Blevins claims that Ninja only spoke out originally because there was a rumor spreading that Ninja was to blame for the leak. “Somehow everyone was trying to blame this on Ninja (per usual) which is why I’m saying something,” she tweeted.

But, when Tfue’s brother Jack came to his defense, Jessica hit back, accusing Tfue of streaming the event when he wasn’t meant to because “the reality is Turner is desperate for money.”

She also suggests this is why Tfue is trying to create a “public fight” with Ninja, in an attempt to stir up drama, leading to more views and attention.

Clarifying, Jessica continued: “He’s been paying legal fees, and if Faze wanted to, they could take back millions in tournament money. No sponsors. It really is the only explanation for why he pulls the shit he does.”

Jack responded again, saying Jessica doesn’t know Turner, and highlighting that he donated $10,000, just because he “felt bad.”

Jessica also appeared to dispute Jack Tenney’s claim that Tfue was the biggest streamer on Twitch, by mentioning three other top streamers who rival his popularity: TimTheTatman, Dr Disrespect, and Summit1G.

Jack called this petty, but Jessica said she was only responding to Tfue’s goading. “Turner wanted Tyler to start saying shit to his face? Here it is.”

Tfue and Ninja appear to have moved on from the drama now, but it’s clear there is no love lost between the pair. Despite being two of the most popular gaming personalities on the planet, it doesn’t look like they will be doing up in Fortnite any time soon.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
