A recent video from PewDiePie saw the number one YouTuber give his thoughts on the Ninja controversy related to ban reporting in Fortnite.

Ninja incorrectly reported someone in Fortnite for stream sniping and said he would go out of his way to insure the player got banned.

Epic found nothing wrong and did not ban the player. A second incident appeared that showed someone being banned based on a Ninja report for only having a high ping, but this turned out to be a hoax.

During his PewNews segment, PewDiePie mocked Ninja for how he handled the initial incident, but also defended him at times.

“I think the hypocrisy here is that if anyone else but Ninja did that, no one would care,” said PewDiePie.

He compared his own controversies with Ninja’s, saying they are amplified because of their positions, with PewDiePie being the face of YouTube and Ninja being the face of Fortnite.

Ninja was not blameless in the ban controversy according to PewDiePie, who claimed that Ninja acted like he had the ability to ban whoever he wanted.

“[Ninja] did say it in a way that he had that power [to ban someone] … ‘I have this power that I can use because I’m Ninja.’”

In the end, PewDiePie believes the real reason Ninja faced so much blow-back on social media was due to his handling of the apology and not necessarily his actions.

“[Ninja] is practically doing what a lot of streamers do, that doesn’t make it ok, but he could have just explained this calm and rationally instead of getting pissed off about it and nobody would have cared.”

PewDiePie’s full thoughts on Ninja’s Fortnite behavior can be found in the video below.

Tana Mongeau has responded to a video of her ex-girlfriend Bella Thorne who was filmed kissing another influencer in a TikTok that’s had millions of views.

Bella Thorne was at Clubhouse BH this week, the creator collective founded by Daisy Keech. The “Shake it Up” actress collaborated with influencer Teala Dunn in TikTok videos.

But in one video she was seen kissing her directly on the lips. The clip has already racked up more than 8 million views and 1.5 million likes.

It’s unsurprising that the pair are hanging out, as Teala and Bella have known each other for several years after both appearing on Shake It Up together. Bella makes regular appearances in influencers’ social media posts and even music videos.

Teala recently joined Clubhouse BH and has come under fire in recent weeks for repeatedly posting TikToks that use the same joke, over and over. Her video with Bella Thorne even plays into the same joke where she begins the video saying: “Fun fact, actually really really sad fact.”

Bella is also the ex-girlfriend of popular YouTuber Tana Mongeau. They dated for over a year but broke up in February 2019, and have thrown shade at each other over social media since.

Tana responded to the kiss by duetting the TikTok from her own account, adding: “People really pretend to be my friend,” and then commented “It’s a joke…kinda? Like?”

TikTokers and other influencers weighed in with their opinions too. Harry Jowsey commented: “What happened last time someone hung out with your ex?” referring to drama between the two and Francesca Farago in September.

Francesca and Tana were rumored to be dating, but they got into a fight after Tana posted a video with Harry, Francesca’s ex-boyfriend.

Another user got over 10,000 likes on one comment under Tana’s TikTok that said: “Teala hasn’t even done anything to me, yet she triggers me so much and idek why.”

Teala herself commented: “Girl what???” Despite claiming her response is a joke. But the pair appeared to have resolved any issues that may have come up after Teala tweeted: “Ummm I freaking love @tanamongeau everything’s fine y’all there’s no drama,” and Tana responded with love heart emojis.

Whether a romance is blossoming between Teala and Bella is yet to be determined.
