FaZe Tfue has shot down the idea that he only blew up because he killed Ninja on Fortnite and if you believe that, he thinks you’re “actually stupid.”
In a defensive rant during a Twitch livestream yesterday, Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney seemed bemused by the suggestion that his success on the streaming platform was down to one solitary kill – as people had suggested in the chat.
“Dude, if you think that i blew up because I killed Ninja, you’re fucking actually stupid,” He said. “How does it even make any sense at all? People fucking kill Ninja a hundred times a stream, they kill me a hundred times a stream.
Ninja became the face of Fortnite and Twitch in 2018.
“All of the streamers that kill us, the majority of them, don’t have a lot of viewers and they’re not going to gain a shit tonne of viewers because of that. That doesn’t make any sense. It’s literally dumb.”
As he calmed down towards the end of the clip, he said that only ‘dumb’ people think that it’s possible to kill one big streamer and get more viewers, and that those people can ‘suck his ass’.
Tenney teased a hiatus from Fortnite earlier this month, having grown frustrated with the game’s Solo mode. He has been directing his anger towards a lack of a skill gap within the game mode as well as the strength of the RNG (Random Number Generator).
Conversely, Ninja recently voiced his frustrations with players like Tfue for constantly complaining about a game that is making them so much money, which could be a reason the question came up in the stream.
