Controversy

Jake Paul's Misleading Clickbait on Ninja

On March 17, 2018, a YouTuber known as Jake Paul made a video called, "I DONATED $200K TO MY FAV TWITCH STREAMER (ninja) ", and in that video, Jake Paul only donates to his friend, according to Jake Paul. Ninja never showed up in the video, but was in the thumbnail and title. After the release of the video, many fans who donated to Ninja, including his friend KingRichard15, questioned Ninja saying if Jake Paul actually donated to him. Ninja keeps saying that Jake Paul used him for attention. On April 23, 2018, Ninja joined the 'H3 Podcast' episode 63 . At one point of the video, h3h3Productions told Ninja his opinion about the Jake Paul controversy and what might Ninja do. Ninja first said that he didn't reach out to Jake Paul because he does not want to talk about Drama or any controversy that is going towards him. Ninja also mentions that he is trying to strike down every channel that puts his content that is a simple gameplay, but not montages. On April 29, 2018, after all the controversy shown, Jake Paul finally makes a video called, "My Response To Ninja... ", and in that video, Jake responds about the controversy, and he apologizes to Ninja about it. Afterwards, Jake Paul changed the Title from "Ninja" to "Insane Reaction", and showed the people Jake Paul actually donated towards.

Ninja says the N word

On March 28, 2018, Ninja was rapping the lyrics of the song 'Logic - 44 more' while on Nadeshot's stream (luckily Ninja wasn't streaming himself) and Ninja after rapping the third line of the song said "my n***a" which wasn't in the actual song at all (and continued on to the last part of the fourth line, "and compartmentalize ya"). At first, Ninja ignored the fact he said that in the stream but Nadeshot heard it (as you can see a shocked expression on his face and that's all he did). Some people thought it wasn't that serious because he was rapping and not using as any harm and he didn't use the racial counterpart with a hard R, but others compared it to PewDiePie's slip up which was way worse (as he used the hard R version out of anger). Ninja the next day after noticing his incident spread on the news released four statements on Twitter. The first statement says he doesn't want anyone to feel disrespected or misunderstood. The second statement says he wants people to feel safe and welcome and never wants anyone to be hurt. In the third statement Ninja explains the word's usage, and that's he all about equality. The last statement says that Ninja didn't mean any malicious intent and that he wasn't even trying to say the word and just fumbled lyrics and got tongue tied, and apologizes.

Jack Doherty vs. Ninja

On March 30, 2018, a YouTuber known as Jack Doherty, who is a YouTube vlogger, made a video called, "EXPOSING NINJA!" where he talks about Ninja direct messaging Jack to take down the donation video Jack did to Ninja. If Jack didn't take down the video, Ninja would give him a strike on his channel. Jack did remove the video and afterwards, Ninja blocked Jack on Twitter. Ninja did mention in the beginning that he refunded all of Jack's donations and then told to take down the video. Jack then responded talking about MrBeast donating to Ninja and that Ninja was alright with it. Ninja never did respond to the MrBeast video, and continued to tell Jack to take down the video within the next 8 hours. Ninja also mentions that Jack made a lot of money off the video. And Ninja says again that he refunded, and said the video was fake. Jack then shows that he donated Ninja $300 and did not refund the money. After the video release, it was released on DramaAlert, and both Ninja and DramaAlert fans defended Ninja and Jack received thousands of dislikes off his video.

"Do not bully people"

Ninja said in a March, 2018 livestream to not bully people and to not make fun of them. People then shared his clips back from 2017 when Ninja used to play H1Z1 and PUBG, with one being of him killing a kid who said "aww, fuck you f*ggot" in which Ninja shouted back at the kid "THE F*CK YOU SAY TO ME YOU LITTLE SH*T?" in which the kid laughs and Ninja mocks his laugh. He than asks the kid if he kisses his mother with that mouth and why he is not in school at that time. The kid laughs again and questions why he is so mad at him, and Ninja mocks him again and tries to explain how bad the youth of society is, but the kid interrupts, creating loud static with his mic and Ninja shouts at him telling him to listen while he's talking to him. Another includes a guy who said "f*ck you Ninja" and Ninja replies with saying "f*ck you kid. You're adopted." and a final clip where he is furious towards OhMyPulse, after killing Ninja in Fortnite and saying that Pulse and his friend "stream sniped" him, with Ninja dropping multiple insults. It has been proven by many fans that he doesn't act like this anymore because with his sudden rise in popularity in March 2018, he decided to start cleaning up his act and become a better role model as younger kids are more likely to watch him because they enjoy Fortnite.

Death Hoax

On July 17, 2018, a variety of Ninja's fans were worried and confused if Ninja had passed away due to Ligma, which is an aggressive string of ebola, and started as a meme called "Ligma Balls". Many people has been saying "RIP" on Instagram because he had contracted Ligma. But was believed to be a hoax.

Ninja hater

A user on Instagram, known as 'Ninja_Hater' made an instagram post on the night of July 16, 2018 saying "Spread this. Let's make fake news. OC". He then showed an image of "Ninja" in heaven along with other well-known people and animals featuring, Harambe, Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, Lil Peep, and many more with the phrase "Join us, Ninja". The main reason for it was because he hasn't posted in days. On July 18, further confusion arised; as commentated Fortnite gameplay was posted on Ninja's YouTube, Twitter and Twitch accounts. Despite the fact it had been two days since his "death" at the time. An investigation is taking place as to how a Fortnite stream featuring Ninja occured days later.

On July 20, 2018, Instagram user spookid uploaded a clip from a stream that featured a Ninja imposter, which showed 'Ninja' requesting moderators to ban users who mentioned Ligma in the chat, stating that first offenses would be met with a 24-hour ban and repeat offenses would be permanently banned.

On July 22, 2018, PewDiePie posted a Meme Review covering the Ligma "meme", applied to both Ninja and other internet celebrities such as H3h3Productions and Supreme Patty. Ninja did comment on the video saying "RIP ninja... that damn ligma" which was later pinned by PewDiePie.

Female Twitch Streamers

On August 9, 2018 at the Samsung event and previously weeks before on stream, Ninja had explained why he doesn't play with female Twitch streamers. The decision had a lot of controversy, and was shared by Polygon. Ninja explained why he decided not to play with female streamers, is because it was cause drama and a relationship. Ninja says if he made a joke with the female, it would be clipped and used for clickbait and manipulation on YouTube, and can make people think that Ninja is sexist and JGhosty (Ninja's wife) "angry". His decision had gotten a lot of support, but the females did not respect his decision. But other female streamers also agreed with Ninja's decision, one of them being Valkyrae. Ninja also explains that he has nothing against female streamers nor does he hate them. The only thing he hates is the clickbait if he possibly ever plays with a female.
