Twitter Reacts As Ninja Posts 'Worst Tweet Ever' About His 'Braless Girlfriend'
Tyler "Ninja" Blevins has caused controversy on Twitter after posting a 'cringey' update.
If you're not familiar with the 29-year-old, his esports career started competing in H1Z1, before representing some of the top organisations in the world in a seven-year-long Halo career. Competing for the likes of Cloud9, Team Liquid, and Evil Geniuses, Ninja soon found stardom in Fortnite, where his fame skyrocketed after playing with Drake, Travis Scott, and JuJu Smith-Schuster on stream, breaking a peak viewer count record on Twitch.
What Was Ninja's Tweet?
In a now-deleted Tweet, he wrote: "I am in the middle of carrying a league of legends game about to close it out, and my bra-less wife brings me a sandwich (not asked for) with chips as I get a double kill bot lane. So how is your day going?"
How Have People Reacted to Ninja's Tweet?
As you can imagine, there has been quite the reaction. One person commented: ""I THOUGH IT WAS A JOKE THE TWEET IS REAL LMAO", while another added: "That Ninja tweet is art. It's the worst tweet I've ever seen in my life. Just beautiful".
"Scientists have identified this as the highest concentration of cringe in a single tweet", said a third.
Some seemed confused that Ninja pointed out that his wife wasn't wearing a bra at home, as it's very normal for women to do so: "Uhh most women don't wear a bra while chilling around their own damned home. What a weird way to flex on your 12 year old audience. Just say you're doing well in league and go."
Others have (predictably) stuck up for Ninja, saying that his 'flex' is justified. "So what exactly are people vexxed about with @Ninja's sandwich and gaming tweet? Sounds like a good ass relationship to me. I can't understand how anyone is offended - it literally harms nobody. Is it just jealousy?", commented one fan.
Another superfan added: "It's easy to mock Ninja for his cringeworthy tweet but who amongst us wouldn't love their significant other to bring them a sandwich (not asked for)? I'll never say no to a (not asked for) sandwich. Best sandwich tbqh. You're all focusing on the wrong part of the tweet, imo."
Whatever you think about the Tweet, it's definitely got people talking.
