Top Fortnite streamer Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney has reacted to KSI’s ‘Tfue vs Ninja’ video, and explained why he believes Ninja gets so much hate.

YouTuber KSI made a video highlighting three occasions on which FaZe Clan’s Tfue faced off against Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins, in Fortnite, with the FaZe pro coming out on top each time.

The video was clearly edited to favor Tfue, with comical music and memes added to troll Ninja each time he was defeated by his fellow Fortnite streamer.

ESPN / Benedict EvansNinja is the most popular Twitch streamer with over 13 million followers.

From the outset of his reaction to the video, Tfue made clear that he has “nothing but good things to say about Ninja, he’s a good friend of mine”, and says he doesn’t understand why people “throw hate on him”.

“He’s a legend,” Tfue states, “what he’s done for Fortnite and esports, and just gaming as a whole, honestly he’s done so much, so I have nothing but respect and good things to say about Ninja.”

Later in the video, Tenney says KSI maybe went a little too hard on Ninja, explaining that people always hate whoever is on top: “Once you’re at the top, people like to just roast you, you know? Maybe one day, I’ll be on top, and I’ll be getting roasted just like everyone likes to do to Ninja for some reason.”

Incredibly, Tfue’s reaction to KSI’s video already has more views in just 16 hours, than KSI’s original accrued in 3 days, with Tfue’s video almost breaching the 3 million mark already.

It also quickly shot up to number one on YouTube’s trending page for Gaming, proving just how invested fans of both Tfue and Ninja are, in what is seen as the battle for the number one spot in Fortnite streaming.

Tfue recently took a minor victory in overall subscriber counts, now claiming to have over 52,000 paying subscribers, to which Ninja responded by saying “everyone is just out to look for the next guy now.”

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
