Ninja explodes at Funk after falling victim to Fortnite stream snipers

Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins didn’t hide his thoughts on Trevor ‘Funk’ Siegler’s playstyle after the Mixer superstar found himself alone and outgunned against a four-man Fortnite stream-sniping squad, despite having three squadmates.

Ninja, the streamer’s regular duo partner Malachi ‘Reverse2k’ Greiner, Funk, and FaZe Ewok were grinding out Fortnite squad matches, looking to pick up an elusive win-streak, when a group of stream snipers arrived looking for kills.

While Ninja clearly thought he was about to get backup as he raced towards his opponents, his FaZe teammates had other ideas. Blevins got off a bit of damage, and hope flickered for a second he may be able to one-vs-four.

Instead, the alleged stream snipers quickly polished the Mixer star off, and left him seething at his friends. In particular, Ninja turned the jets on Funk, blaming him for “moving too far off ahead” when Ninja was still “200 meters behind.”

“I’m so f**king mad right now… I’m behind you guys!” the streamer exploded during his Feb 6 broadcast. When Funk suggested it wasn’t his fault, Ninja ramped up more. “I’m mad at all of you. I don’t play squads for someone to go off on their own!”

Mixer: Ninja
The Mixer superstar snapped after being caught by four alleged stream snipers without his team.

According to the Fortnite star, who claimed he was “100% truly mad” to his viewers when he muted himself moments later, he “f**king hates people who run away,” and accused Funk of leaving him behind “every single game.”

“Now I’m f**king dead, because you got in trouble and everyone had to go help your ass out, and then I get killed 200 meters behind. Then I got a whole stream sniper squad that kills me, it’s so annoying man,” he added.

“You guys think I’m being a f**king baby? I didn’t just loot up for seven minutes, upgrade my SPAS, have a purple RPG so I could get stream-sniped and die without my squad, that’s not why I play squads. I’m so f**king pissed.”

FaZe Clan
Funk found the whole situation hilarious, and goaded Ninja into getting even more mad.

Tensions continued to rise as Ninja dolled out angry comment after angry comment, and Funk suggested it was best if the squad just restart so everyone could play instead of Ninja being on the sideline for a while.

For some reason, that seemed to tilt the Mixer star even more, and he demanded Funk and the team keep playing to keep a win-streak alive. The FaZe youngster seemed to not take that too seriously, however, and started playing around.

As he edged closer and closer to the side of his tall construction, threatening to jump, Ninja began to beg: “Please, just play it out… please, Funk, I want you to play it out. Pleeeeease! I’ll be even madder if you don’t get a dub.”

Unfortunately for Ninja, Funk had other plans, and tumbled to his death for a 6th place finish. In the post-game lobby, the peeved streamer turned his attention to his viewers, who had been telling him to pipe down during the outburst.

“I’m allowed to be mad at my friends! I’m allowed to rage at my friends without you guys judging me and telling me to shut up,” he yelled, then settled down until another comment suggesting it was “just a game” caught his eye.

“If anyone ever uses the excuse it’s just a game I’m going to lose my mind! Imagine telling Lebron James, Tom Brady, it’s just a game. It’s about respect and pride. It’s so much bigger. Anyone that uses that excuse is a horrible, lazy human being.”

While you may be judging Ninja, it’s hard to admit you haven’t been there before — in sports and gaming tensions run high, and there’ll always be outbursts once in a while. This time, it was just Funk unlucky enough to be caught in the crossfire.

Bryce Hall slams “fake influencers” for partying despite restrictions

TikTok star Bryce Hall is calling out “fake influencers” for partying in spite of social distancing restrictions, just a month after claiming he’s quitting his own partying ways until LA city ordinances are lifted.

Bryce Hall is the self-described “party animal” of the TikTok world, notoriously being charged by the City of Los Angeles for throwing two house parties despite the area’s social distancing ordinances.

Faced with a $2,000 fine and potential jail time, Hall later took to his YouTube channel to state that he his no longer throwing huge parties until it’s safe — but it doesn’t look like his fellow influencers are taking the hint.

Since Hall’s video was released, a number of social media stars have faced criticism for partying, including the likes of Nikita Dragun, Charli D’Amelio and rapper/Instagram star Zach Clayton, who Hall called out for his partying habits in a pointed Tweet.

“I have a theory that the influencers who continue going to parties every night don’t own a brain,” Clayton said of the influencer-partying phenomenon. “Correct me if I’m wrong, though.”

It seems that Hall felt Clayton was being a bit of a hypocrite, as he shot back by calling him a “fake influencer,” claiming that Clayton publicly decries large gatherings but attends them himself in spite of his words of warning.

“Practice what you preach and try not to be fake,” Hall shot back. “Let’s remember you attended my birthday party.”

“See, the difference here is I can get called out for attending a party, learn form my mistakes, then actually follow through when I say I won’t go out anymore,” Clayton replied. “I haven’t been to a party since then.”

Bryce wasn’t convinced by Clayton’s response, though, and accused him of attending “large gatherings every day not following [redacted] guidelines” — a statement that Clayton seemed to brush off.

This is far from the first time Hall has taken shots at other influencers for partying, by far; he made similar claims in an interview with Entertainment Tonight two weeks ago, calling other influencers “liars” for going to parties but promoting social distancing on social media.

No matter how you spin it, it looks like Hall has learned his lesson and is attempting to curb the current health crisis by calling out other stars — but it doesn’t look like it’s working all too well.
