Ninja Wants You to Leave 'Booby Streamers' Alone - For a Good Reason

The argument about whether women who flaunt their bodies on Twitch for views should be allowed is one that is unlikely to ever go away. One man, however, wants you to stop complaining. Popular streamer Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins is one of the biggest names on the platform and has been part of some of its most astonishing moments, including receiving $60,000 in one donation spree before finding out the guy was a fraud. The former professional Halo player swapped his SCUF controller for a mouse and keyboard full time in 2017 and is now considered one of the top talents on PLAYERUNKNOWN's BattleGrounds, which include a number of serious tournament wins.

Never one to shy away from giving his opinion, he's asked people to stop complaining about booby streamers, because it's not really going to affect other streamers stats. He posted the video on the evening of Thursday, November 9th, in response to a bunch of other Twitch streamers who had been complaining about women flaunting their bodies taking away their viewers. According to Ninja, that's just not how the streaming platform works and people watching women for their bodies won't be switching over to your average joe's stream to watch them play PUBG.

"I've been streaming on Twitch for like six years, since Jtv. I was the beta partner streamer. I can tell you I've learnt a lot of stuff. One of the most important things I've learned that the majority of a streamers community, they found that person, and they're usually new to Twitch, and they watch that person and only that person. Very rarely will they go back and forth to other streamers. Mainly female streamers as well. If they're in a female streamers stream because she's got big tits or she's gorgeous or whatever, they're there for that reason. So if she's not there, they're not going to come to fucking Joe-schmo who sucks at a game or something. They're not going to your stream ok?"
He continued to explain a situation whereby if he's streaming PUBG to 7-8k viewers and he's third in the list behind Shroud or Dr DisRespect, he won't just inherit their 30k-40k viewers if they go offline. x The Tweet video soon gained traction and after just 12 hours it has been shared over 700 times and had over 3,000 likes. As you'd expect with such a controversial subject he was also inundated with responses from many who didn't agree with his point of view. With such momentum building behind the IRL section of Twitch and guidelines already in place about what's too revealing, it's unlikely we'll see a change to the platform rules regarding women flaunting their bodies anytime soon. x
