Dr Disrespect has claimed he knows how much Ninja was paid to move from Twitch to Mixer and that it was a ‘bad move’.

The Fortnite legend ditched Twitch earlier this month, announcing the move to Mixer in an epic press conference video.

Despite him racking up more than a million subscribers already on the site, things haven’t been smooth sailing, with the star – real name Tyler Blevins – hitting out at the platform for ‘promoting porn’ on his old profile, prompting a direct apology from the CEO of Twitch.

Now, fellow streamer Dr Disrespect is claiming that he knows how much Ninja earned from the switch and that it’s a ‘bad move’ on his part.

‘Am I the only one that’s gotta say it?’ he asked in a recent stream. ‘I’m the only one that’s got the guts. It was a bad move. It was. For Ninja it was a bad move. I’m surprised.’

The streamer’s not the first person to speak out on the amount of dosh the 28-year-old raked in with the move, with top YouTuber PewDiePie previously suggesting it was ‘a lot of money.’

‘Ninja’s streaming on Mixer!’ he exclaimed. ‘That’s funny. I saw it in the comments and I didn’t understand. I mean, good for him.’

The 29-year-old recalled: ‘Jack told me yesterday, he was like, “Mixer came to me with a lot of money and then all of a sudden they say no.” Now we know where that money went!’

Tyler announced the move at the beginning of this month, saying in his ‘press conference’ video: ‘I know this may come as a shock to you but, as of today, I will be streaming exclusively on Mixer. I know. It’s exciting,’ he said.

When asked how the move to the Microsoft-owned service would affect his gaming abilities, he replied: ‘It really won’t. It’s the same me, just a different platform.’

He continued: ‘I feel like this is a really good chance to get back in touch with my roots, and really remember why I fell in love with streaming in the first place.’
