Drake doesn't appreciate the side talk.
Drake and professional gamer Ninja started an online friendship when the two teamed up to live stream matches of Fortnite back in March. Their friendship seemed to grow over time, with Drake popping in to play with Ninja a couple times over the past several months. Their initial pairing broke streaming records, since the two men have extremely large fan bases (Ninja has over 15 million subscribers on his Youtube channel alone).
While Ninja was on a live stream recently, he brought up Drizzy's Scorpion merch. "Is he gonna buy my next line of Ninja merch? You know, or my Ninja headband? Probably not," commented the gamer. "I feel like Drake saw that I was up-and-coming on the gaming scene and he thought it would be a perfect way to just tap into another source of viewers by playing with me. He also might have just wanted to game. I'm not sure but he's a genius, dude." Apparently, Drake did not take too kindly to Ninja's words, because he unfollowed him on Instagram.
Drake has never been shy when it comes to unfollowing people on social media, and Ninja is sure to be feeling slightly regretful of his words. Although he did reveal that he would most likely cop a Scorpion jacket anyway, the damage was done the second he suggested that Drake might have used him to grow his fan base.
