Ninja initially rose to fame through competitive Halo 3, then transitioned to streaming Fortnite, PUBG, and Apex Legends. Shortly after the release of Apex Legends, he was reportedly paid US$1 million by EA in order to promote the burgeoning battle royale game on his social channels and playing it on stream.
As with many online personalities, he’s had his fair share of controversy, for examp[le, he was banned from Twitch for 48 hours after releasing the personal details of a viewer whose screen name was deemed racist. Additionally, he falsely reported a Fortnite player stream sniping, despite the fact that the player wasn’t watching Ninja’s stream at the time.
