Ninja is a smart man.
Ninja is the most famous Twitch streamer in the world. The world renown gamer earned his reputation playing Fortnite, which has become a breakout hit for developer Epic Games. Speaking with Polygon, Ninja explained why you never see him streaming with a female.
“I don’t play with female gamers,” Ninja began. “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." Ninja, whose real name is Tyler Blevins, is married to fellow streamer Jessica “Jghosty” Blevins. He believes that keeping away from other women online is the most respectful and intelligent thing he can do to keep his relationship from being subject to media speculations.
“[Not being connected to other women online,] that was something I made 100-percent sure,” Ninja stated. He continued on to reveal that it was his own decision, and not one forced on him by his wife. “That was not even her. She had nothing to do with it. That was me being, ‘I love our relationship,’ and, ‘No — I’m not even gonna put you through that.’”
