Lockdown is still in place for most of the world, and it’s getting harder and harder to have a little fun with the people you’re stuck at home with. For the likes of Fortnite streamer Ninja and his wife, Jessica, pranking seems to be the best way to beat the lockdown blues.
Jessica recently took to TikTok to prank her husband while he livestreamed Fortnite for his legions of viewers. The prank sees Jessica tell Ninja she knows a great drink that can be made with beer. She then proceeds to pour out a pint of straight vodka, which she serves to Ninja with a little food colouring to conceal the truth.
It’s a pretty funny gag (if you’re of age, of course) and it’s nice to see that even professional gamers can be subjected to a good ol’ pranking!

In related news, Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins recently spoke out against Epic Games’ ban of a nine-year-old, condemning the company’s decision.
Nine-year-old Fortnite player, Zenon, was playing the game with his father’s supervision when he joined a ranked Arena Mode match. Arena Mode matches are only for players aged 13 and over, leading Epic Games to quickly ban Zenon from playing any part of Fortnite for 1,459 days (note that Fortnite is a PEGI 12-rated game). Zenon received a four-year-long ban from the whole of Fortnite, and promptly burst into tears on stream.
The clip quickly went viral, with the hashtag “#FreeZenon” taking over social media. Responding to the immense backlash, Ninja had the following to say:
“Unless Arenas start offering money for placements there is no reason for #FreeZenon to be banned from them until he turns 13. That being said the age requirement to compete in Fortnite is 13 and he is 9. He shouldn’t be banned from any other aspect of Fortnite 100%”
The controversy continues, with Zenon’s account still banned.
