Ninja had an interesting moment when he was streaming Fortnite with iShowSpeed the day before. During the stream, iShowSpeed accidentally leaked the discord of the streamer, Ninja. This led Ninja to have to delete the Discord channel. What was devastating for Ninja was that was his “sanctuary” for years. The channel housed players like Drake and the other musicians, as well as some of the more “OG streamers” that he plays with.

On the next day, Ninja was thinking about iShowSpeed and spoke about what he felt. Ninja said “Dude, yesterday made me realize how blessed I am, bro. I’ll just say that. That, like, I can just be me. I can just do this.” He shared how he enjoys just having to play Fortnite and have viewers watching him play. “I don’t have to do crazy planned stuff. Like, by the way, it’s very entertaining so I get that, I get why all these young guys are so massive and popular” he added. This sentence must have struck the wrong chord with some viewers as seen in the Twitter conversation.
