Fortnite streamer Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins has come under fire for his controversial take on casual gamers. The content creator recently took to Twitter to give his opinion on the matter, explaining how he believes feeling anger when losing a game is part of the process. Naturally, the take has enraged video game fans across the world.
Ninja tweeted to his 5.4 million followers: “The phrase ‘it’s just a game’ is such a weak mindset. You are ok with what happened, losing, imperfection of a craft.
“When you stop getting angry after losing, you’ve lost twice. There’s always something to learn, and always room for improvement, never settle.”
The star is now being heavily criticised across social media, with many people calling him out for what’s being read as a “narrow-minded” opinion that encourages anger in gaming.
