In a recent streaming event for charity held during Tyler Ninja Blevins streaming session, someone broke into the Fortnite account of Drake and went on saying the n-word multiple times. The streaming event was held in support of Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Conservation Fund named the Ellen Fund.
When Duddus647, reportedly Drake signs on to the game, Ninja is heard is saying, “I’m not sure if Drake meant to invite me”. It was reported by the Verge during the weekend that Ninja ended the game the moment whoever had gained access to Drake’s account started saying the n-word.
Ninja went on and defending Drake said, “That’s not Drake” to the fans who were watching the event. Fans believed it to be Drake and were under the impression that he was making a surprise Fortnite entry.
In the end, Ninja exclaims, “What do you do about that, man?” after ending the game. He further explained, “That’s awkward. On a charity Stream Man. Gotta love it, Dude”. Ninja went ahead and messaged drake that his account was compromised by someone else. He also informed Epic Games about it.
