“I want to be remembered as one of the greatest gamers of all time, if not the greatest,” said Ninja. “That might not happen though, because again, we don’t really know what makes the best. Competitive, gamer, streamer, where will the best come from?”
There’s no doubt that Ninja is a talented gamer, but one of the greatest gamers of all time? That’s a pretty big title.
Ninja’s latest controversial opinion has been making the rounds on Twitter after the streamer criticised NFL football teams.
The star tweeted: “I’ll never understand how college and NFL football teams allow kickers that just…miss…kicks. I feel like there has to be pools of kickers in the USA that won’t miss simple kicks. Or snappers that won’t mess the snaps idk man it seems so SILLY. Would love opinions on this.”
One user responded: “I’ll never understand how pro fortnite players just…miss shots. I feel like there has to be pools of pro players who can just click on their heads and hit every show with 100% accuracy just seems so SILLY.”
This prompted an outraged reply from Ninja, who branded the comment as “sh*tty” in now-deleted tweets (screenshots here).
Of course, the comments angered a lot of pro sports players and sports fans alike.
It seems that Ninja is never going to be too far away from his controversial status.
