Controversy

Jake Paul's Misleading Clickbait on Ninja

On March 17, 2018, a YouTuber known as Jake Paul made a video called, "I DONATED $200K TO MY FAV TWITCH STREAMER (ninja) ", and in that video, Jake Paul only donates to his friend, according to Jake Paul. Ninja never showed up in the video, but was in the thumbnail and title. After the release of the video, many fans who donated to Ninja, including his friend KingRichard15, questioned Ninja saying if Jake Paul actually donated to him. Ninja keeps saying that Jake Paul used him for attention. On April 23, 2018, Ninja joined the 'H3 Podcast' episode 63 . At one point of the video, h3h3Productions told Ninja his opinion about the Jake Paul controversy and what might Ninja do. Ninja first said that he didn't reach out to Jake Paul because he does not want to talk about Drama or any controversy that is going towards him. Ninja also mentions that he is trying to strike down every channel that puts his content that is a simple gameplay, but not montages. On April 29, 2018, after all the controversy shown, Jake Paul finally makes a video called, "My Response To Ninja... ", and in that video, Jake responds about the controversy, and he apologizes to Ninja about it. Afterwards, Jake Paul changed the Title from "Ninja" to "Insane Reaction", and showed the people Jake Paul actually donated.

Ninja says the N word

On March 28, 2018, Ninja was rapping the lyrics of the song 'Logic - 44 more', Ninja said the N word while rapping to the song on stream with his friend Nadeshot. Ever since, Ninja has not necessarily responded about it, and people say it's okay because he said the N word with the 'A' being at the end. He did not say the N word with the 'E' and 'R' at the end, and many people were not as offended as some was when he said it. Ninja was in multiple websites about the incident and many people say that it was not offensive because he didn't use the N word at a different and offensive level.

Jack Doherty vs. Ninja

On March 30, 2018, a YouTuber known as Jack Doherty, who is a YouTube vlogger, made a video called, "EXPOSING NINJA!" where he talks about Ninja DMing Jack to take down the donation video Jack did to Ninja. If Jack didn't take down the video, Ninja would give him a strike on his channel. Jack did remove the video and afterwards, Ninja blocked Jack on Twitter. Ninja did mention in the beginning that he refunded all of Jack's donations and then told to take down the video, or else, striked. Jack then responded talking about MrBeast  donating to Ninja and that Ninja was alright with it. Ninja never did respond to the MrBeast video, and continued to tell Jack to take down the video within the next 8 hours. Ninja also mentions that Jack made a lot of money off the video. And Ninja says again that he refunded, and said the video was fake. Jack then shows that he donated Ninja $300 and did not refund the money. Jack then said he can donate it back. And Ninja does his final response and says that he doesn't need Jack's money, and told him to remove the video, or else get striked. After Ninja says that, Ninja blocked Jack on Twitter. After the video release, it was released on DramaAlert, and Jack received thousands of dislikes off that video.

"Do not bully people"

Ninja said in a March 2018 livestream to not bully people and to not make fun of them. People then shared his clips back from 2017 when Ninja used to play H1Z1 and PUBG, with one being of him killing a kid who said "fuck you f*ggot" in which Ninja shouted back at the kid "THE FUCK YOU SAY TO ME YOU LITTLE SHIT" in which the kid laughs and Ninja mocks his laugh and asks the kid if he kisses his mother with that mouth and why he is not in school at that time. The kid laughs again and questions why is so mad at him and Ninja mocks him again and tries to explain how bad the youth of society is but the kid interrupts, creating loud static with his mic and Ninja shouts at him telling him to listen while he's talking to him. Another includes a guy who said "fuck you Ninja" and Ninja replies with saying "fuck you kid. You're adopted" and a final clip where he is furious towards OhMyPulse, after killing Ninja in Fortnite and saying that Pulse and his friend "stream sniped" him, with Ninja dropping multiple f-bombs (he wasn't really toxic, he just swore a lot more and got pissed off a lot basically). It has been stated by many that Ninja does not act like this anymore, as of all these clips took place before January 2018 (which was the start of his increasing growth from slightly under 500K to slightly over 1M) when Ninja started to tone down the swearing and significantly slow down the rage due to his increase in popularity, wanting to be more family friendly.
