Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins recently threatened to take legal action against Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys after back and forth following the permanent ban of Jidion.
It all started back on December 13th when Jidion became a Twitch partner. Pokimane was streaming VALORANT when she noticed some people in her Twitch chat typing “L+ratio”. These spammers were apparently sent by none other than Jidion who apparently told his viewers to do so.
Pokimane soon ended her stream after some of Jidion’s viewers started harassing Poki’s viewers. Following this incident, Jidion’s Twitch channel received a ban for 14 days. But Twitch soon decided to make Jidion’s ban permanent after many Twitch streamers rallied behind Pokimane and criticized Jidions actions.
But the drama was not over as Ninja decided to help Jidion reverse his permanent ban. Ninja also apparently contacted his Twitch representatives about Jidion’s ban. He told Jidion, “You can’t run around raiding Bi*ches on Twitch”.
Jidion’s reacted to this by jumping up and running around his room saying,” he called her ‘a bi*ch”. Ninja immediately claimed that he “meant bi*ches generally”.
Pokimane reacted to this comment made by Ninja saying, “I wonder if Ninja would have said “bitches” if it was a large male streamer who was raided.” She also added, “Why Ninja would help someone evade a ban for harassing me? I have no idea, I genuinely don’t know”.
The back and forth escalated further after Ninja’s wife and manager Jessica Blevins threatened to sue Pokimane. Pokimane shared a DM from Ninja’s wife which states,
“We are considering everything defamation of character at this point,” Blevins told Poki before warning their legal team is now “getting involved. You are spewing lies to tens of thousands of people.”
Jessical also stated that Ninja never contacted anyone from Twitch. She also said,
“You are actively bringing harassment to Tyler and I right now at the highest level and we are taking this very seriously.”
Ninja later also DM’s Poki which she revealed during one of her Livestreams. It said,
“Hey, so I just want you to know. I swear on my grandfathers life, who just passed away, that I didn’t text my twitch rep”. And the final line was,
“And you are making a big mistake”.
Many Twitch streamers and content creators reacted to the Ninja and Pokimane drama but here is xQc’s reaction to this whole situation.
