Following some controversial tweets, Mixer streamer Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has been roasted on Twitter yet again. Over the American holiday weekend many turn to food and football to pass the time. Ninja, however, took to Twitter early Saturday morning to complain about football and the professionals who play it. In a now-deleted tweet, Ninja complained:
I’ll never understand how college and NFL football teams allow kickers that just… miss… kicks. I feel like there has to be pools of kickers in the USA that won’t miss simple kicks. Or snappers that won’t mess the snaps idk man it seems so SILLY. Would love opinions on this.
Well, he got several opinions on the matter. Several people pointed out that Ninja was being unreasonable about the comparison asking "How many 350 pound linebackers are running at you while you play a video game?" Twitter went into a frenzy over these comments and did not hold back on Blevins since the day Lady Gaga tweeted about "Fortnight".
Since Ninja was tweeting on Saturday morning he was clearly talking about college football, though it's unclear what game he was referring to. Ninja is a known Detroit Lions fan, whose team played on Thanksgiving and lost to the Chicago Bears.
Many found the whole statement absolutely ridiculous, but even fellow streamers got in on the roasting. Fellow professional mobile gamer DuckyTheGamer mocked Ninja by repeating his tweet back to him almost verbatim.
I'll never understand how pro fortnite players just... miss shots. I feel like there has to be pools of pro players who can just click on their heads and hit every shot with 100% accuracy, just seems so SILLY.— DuckyTheGamer (@duckybtw) November 30, 2019
Ninja fired back that Fortnite and football weren't even comparable because Fortnite requires more finely tuned skills. He said that, "There are not 'positions' in Fortnite. a kicker's job is LITERALLY to kick. Horrible analogy, kind of embarrassing." But many fans grabbed Ducky's banner and ran with it, further pummeling the now-Mixer Fortnite star.
After a few hours of the internet onslaught, Ninja deleted the incriminating tweets in question and took to making an apology. "One thing I learned today is if I'm curious and unsure of something, is to never ask for the internet's opinion..." With Ninja's numbers doing well on Mixer, it's clear that this is not the last the internet will see of him.
