- Ninja's Twitter account was hacked, with the hacker sending Tfue messages challenging him to a fight
- Tfue has released a video making numerous accusations against Ninja, suggesting they actually settle their dispute in the ring
- Ninja in response called out Tfue for bringing attention to his hacked tweets, declining the offer
Fortnite streamers Ninja and Tfue’s long-running rivalry has kicked up a notch, with the latter challenging him to a boxing match.
In a video uploaded on Tfue’s YouTube channel, the streamer spotlights tweets sent to him from Ninja after hackers gained access to his Twitter account - with one calling for a fight between them.
While acknowledging Ninja’s Twitter account was hacked, Tfue explained how he's been wanting to address the tensions between them.
“Ever since I blew up on social media, he’s been trying to tear me down, he’s been talking behind my back,” Tfue said.
The streamer also claimed Ninja tried to get him permanently banned off Twitch behind his back in a bid to end his career.
“I know he doesn’t like me and I know he’s been trying to tear me down forever,” Tfue said. “So I’m giving him the opportunity now to tear me down in the ring.”
In response, Ninja quickly rejected Tfue’s boxing match proposal and criticised him for using his hacking incident as a “publicity stunt”.
In a post, Ninja wrote: “I have no interest in fighting you @TTfue. I don’t hate you, I don’t want you to fail, but I also don’t appreciate you using my twitter being hacked as a publicity stunt.
I have no interest in fighting you @TTfue . I don’t hate you, I don’t want you to fail, but I also don’t appreciate you using my twitter being hacked as a publicity stunt. It was a breach in privacy which nobody deserve to deal with, your making it worse for me and helping him.— Ninja (@Ninja) February 23, 2020
“It was a breach in privacy which nobody deserve to deal with, your making it worse for me and helping him.”
Ninja and Tfue’s history stretches back to when they first competed against one another as H1Z1 players, having since battled each other in Fortnite on numerous occasions.
While their rivalry has largely remained in-game, Tfue has been more vocal about tensions between them both in recent months - having stated in October last year Ninja “hated him”.
