PewDiePie has urged Ninja to ‘stop trying so hard’ after one of his tweets about Fortnite went viral.
Honesty is the best policy, right?
In his latest episode of LWIAY (Last Week I Asked You), the YouTube star, who recently featured in YouTube Rewind 2019, joked about one of Ninja’s tweets.
‘I’ll never understand how college and NFL football teams allow kickers that just…miss…kicks,’ the Fortnite legend wrote.
‘I feel like there has to be pools of kickers in the USA that won’t miss simple kicks. Or snappers that won’t mess the snaps idk man it seems so SILLY. Would love opinions on this.’
Understandably, people were a bit baffled. When a follower used his logic on pro Fortnite players, Ninja – real name Tyler Blevins – doubled down.
‘This is the s***tiest reply ever,’ he said. ‘Fortnite requires movement, editing, building, rotating, and hitting shots. There are not “positions” in Fortnite. A kickers job is to LITERALLY kick. Horrible analogy, kind of embarrassing.’
PewDiePie – real name Felix Kjellberg – found the whole thing hilarious.
‘Why would it be embarrassing for a random stranger to tweet at you?’ he asked. ‘It’s like he’s projecting what he said is kind of embarrassing onto someone else and he makes no sense at all.’

The 30-year-old added: ‘Ninja, my man. Come on, stop. Get some help. I think Ninja has potential to be the greatest gamer, don’t get me wrong. But stop trying so hard.
‘You can have that as a goal without shoving it into people’s faces.’
After his tweet, Ninja appeared to see the error of his ways, tweeting: ‘One thing I learned today is if im curious and unsure of something, is to never ask for the internets opinion because I am getting f***ing ROASTED.’
He later mocked his own tweet, writing: ‘I’ll never understand why I have so much wine… like…. there has to be a wine out there that doesn’t give me a hangover… or like.. something that makes me feel better in the morning.. idk it just seems silly. Would love opinions on this.’

Horrible analogy, kind of embarrassing.
And it seems Felix is in a pretty good position to give advice, after he was crowned the most-watched YouTuber of 2019.
Racking up four billion views over the year, he also gained 22 million subscribers just in 2019.
Not only that, but his wedding video with Marzia is also the second most-liked video of the year with 4.7 million likes.
Not too shabby.
