Popular streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has explained how the Fortnite community wouldn't not get away with an explosive meltdown like Turner ‘Tfue’ Tenney’s during the fourth week of the FNCS squads event.
Tfue and his squad exploded on November 24 when opposing teams in the tournament appeared at their usual landing spot, eventually leading to the team rage quitting the tournament altogether, hurling insults at each other on social media, and even claims from pro player BlastaMastaa that the 21-year-old was “witch-hunting” him.
Unsurprisingly, Fortnite rival Ninja watched the explosive aftermath of the incident and explained that if he were to do something similar, he believes the reaction would be huge, and extremely critical of him.
While playing with long-time duo Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Grenier, the pair discussed Tfue’s rage, and how the community responds to him compared to the former FaZe Clan star.
“I don’t think there’s any better content than Turner’s team getting landed on and then complaining,” the Mixer streamer explained. “Dude, it was nuts. If I talked to my teammates the way Turner talks to his, there would be Reddit threads roasting me, I’d be the most hated player on the planet. YouTube videos, clickbaits.”
“Everyone just expects you to be the guy,” agreed Reverse2k. “Like the role model. I guess I know why, you’re the biggest of them all. Tfue’s always had that savage side.”

While many remain surprised by Tfue’s outburst about another team landing at their spot, it isn’t the first time pro players have called out opponents for this, with TSM’s ZexRow calling out Aimhero_o for the same thing at ESL Katowice Royale back in March.
Whether this will discourage teams from heading to Steamy Stacks for fear of public rebuttal from Tfue remains to be seen, however, Ninja believes it’s not something that he himself would be able to get away with.
