does he have to pay income tax on the revenu? does he have to give a certain amount to the sponcers? If not, what about giving 5% to organization to help homeless for education, support to get back on their feet? how about some $$$$ to areas in the world that is hit with extreme weather and desctruction? some people in this world needs help from us. But i suppose selfishness is the rule here? or does it?

I see media still giving cancer attention these days. It’s not like this dude gets money for working. He gets it from donations to play Fortnite. While he just uses the media like CNN to become more popular to live off ur hard working money or ur parents hard working money. I bet this dude a complete shit head off camera

Dont hate me but I kind of dont understand or find it fair how people spend years in college paying tuition and trying to maintain good grades to only make like $121,000 a year (not literally) also..... doctors only make 187000 a year.......

I miss the Halo Reach Ninja just mostly because I don't like Fortnite. I enjoyed watching Ninja on twitch back when Halo Reach was out when he did his 1v1 tournaments, and I understand that in the past 8 years Ninja has changed with all the life barriers he had overcome, I just morn for the good old days.

Let me tell you guys the true story : some chinese guys funded his stream to push his stream to stay at top in twitch, in order to promote their game. Fortnite is owned by chinese, in case you guys don't know.

zentum aisle Without a brain? you’re the one making claims. You should provide your proof. YOU are the one with the burden of proof. If anyone here is “without a brain” its you. Anyone with a even a speck of intelligence would have the common sense to question any claims without concrete proof

What makes people want to watch him play? Is he really that good?
Jacob the First and last knight (1 day ago)
the Point many people for get is that you can make 500k or even 1 billion a year or month. but how much do you really take home? Ninja is sign on by more then one company and he have to meet contract quotes and if he dont he dont make money.. real people who know who the rich work is the rich get richer . I know for a face the company that sign him on makes 4 time off him just along, witch is said because if he was making all that money you really thing that he would just save all his cash up for just 2 years straght and then stop playing Fornite and just live off all that money ? nope he solid him self for a penny and he will have to keep working intel the game dies and when it does he better hop he able to play another game like fornite.. he hope on Call of duty and you saw he wasnt the best so he hope right back off. just saying people he many make 500k a month but im sure after all the fees, and when the big men get done with Ninja he come's home with 25 to 10k a month. witch is the true and sad to say.
