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 can choose to play or not to play with whoever he wants, Get off that mans back lol. Can't be upset if he chooses not to play with you because of HIS OWN feelings towards HIS OWN relationship unless you're a clout chaser, regardless of gender :no_good:♀️

I respect Ninja's decision to not play with women. Just like some streamers refuse to play with children. In order to avoid something, you have to cut it from the source. He is not dissing any females in the gaming/ streaming community so why is everyone having a tiddie-attack?:baby_chick:

I could tweet my opinion about Ninja not playing with female streamers, but wanna know something wild? My opinion doesn't matter because it's his life and he can do whatever he wants. Mind blowing stuff eh?

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.
