Tyler "Ninja" Blevins' rise to pro gaming fame is pretty much insane and it skyrocketed even more with his recent "Fortnite" stream featuring popular rapper/songwriter Drake. That said, it is expected that a number of people will be capitalizing on his popularity just like what recently happened when his face was used as a YouTube clickbait.

He doesn't even want the name mentioned on his stream

Well-known YouTuber Jake Paul recently resumed his daily uploads on his channel after he went on hiatus for a couple of weeks.

As for his return vlog - "I Donated 200K to My Fav Twitch Streamer (insane reaction)" - he initially put on a thumbnail showing an image of Ninja. Turns out, it was Jake's best buds – Chance Sutton and Anthony Trujillo (both YouTubers and Twitch streamers) - who got the donation.

Ninja, on the other hand, was unaware of the situation until his chat box was spammed with messages stating that he was on Jake's recent vlog. He responded on his stream telling his viewers to stop sending such messages adding that they're giving the YouTuber what he wants.

He even warned them that his moderators will start banning subscribers if it continues.

Meanwhile, the vlog in question received quite a number of dislikes and this could be one of the reasons why its thumbnail got tweaked (it now has Chance and Anthony's faces on it). There were even comments stating that it is fake while some believe that the younger Paul may have copied the idea from another content creator – MrBeast.

Fans might recall Ninja's charity stream for suicide prevention back in February where he received over $100,000 that in some way will help people who are suffering from depression. MrBeast took part in the cause as he donated a total of $30,000 to see how Ninja would react to it.

The Business/financial TV channel of CNBC also took notice of the pro-gamer where he got interviewed by the network. He revealed how he started off and how he juggled work, college life, and playing Video Games that eventually brought him to where he is right now.

For the uninitiated, his competitive play debut was way back in 2009 at a "Halo 3" event in Orlando, though his presence was made known in 2011 when he played "Halo: Reach" at gaming events in Anaheim, Columbus, and in Dallas.

He now has almost four million subscribers on Twitch, over five million on YouTube, and a million followers on both Instagram and Twitter. Check out a video about Ninja here:
