​Ninja Explains Why He Doesn't Play With Female Streamers

Popular Fortnite streamer Ninja says he will not 'play with female streamers', and it's all down to rumours and gossip which turn into clickbait.

During a recent interview with Polygon, Tyler Blevins opened up about his decision and explained the reasonings behind it.

He said: "If I have one conversation with one female streamer where we're playing with one another, and even if there's a hint of flirting, that is going to be taken and going to be put on every single video and be clickbait forever.

"The only way to avoid that is to not play with them at all."

And he wanted to be certain people knew it "was something [he] made 100-percent sure," and not his wife. "That was not even her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me."

In response, most of his followers were supportive, including fellow female streamers. "There hasn't been a single female gamer or streamer on Twitch or anything like that who's been upset about that," he explained.

Not everyone felt this way, though, and now many have come to Ninja's defence - highlighting the fact that it is completely his decision.

Ninja actually questioned another male streamer - Ali 'Myth' Kabbani - after he played with a female gamer, although it was said to poke fun at so called 'relationships' on Twitch, rather than spread gossip.

Tyler 'Ninja' Blevins has the largest Twitch following on the planet, and recently broke the ten million followers barrier. You can check out his account here or head to his YouTube channel, which has over 16 million subscribers.
