Ninja is a strong believer that Esports are just as difficult as professional sports.

Whether you like video games are not, you've probably heard of the famous Fortnite Twitch streamer Ninja, who made a huge splash on the internet when he streamed a game of Fortnite with Drake back in March.

Ninja, who makes his living as a competitive gamer, made his way to the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night where he addressed the haters and claimed that Esports are just as impressive as professional sports. "There's so many people like, 'Well, why do you watch people play video games when you can go play video games yourself?' And, it's like, can you do that? Can you compete at that high of level and be entertaining?"

The streamer, whose real name is Tyler Blevins, continued by saying "You watch the NFL and things like that because you want to watch people do things that you know you can't. It's the same thing with gaming and streaming."

Blevins is one of the fastest growing streamers on Twitch, with 12.5 million subscribers and another 20 million subscribers on YouTube. In an interview with CNBC back in March, Ninja explained how he makes $500,000 a month playing video games. 

Regardless of what you think about the red-haired gamer, it's clear he must be doing something right. Check out his interview with Jimmy Fallon in the video below.
