Why does this keep happening?
Superstar streamer Ninja is under fire after apparently saying the N-word in a livestream.
Ninja made headlines and broke records at the beginning of 2018 when he streamed himself playing the uber-popular game Fortnite with musical icon Drake.
Ninja was attempting to rap the opening section of Logic's song "44 More", which, interestingly, doesn't actually even include the N-word in its lyrics. Then, he did this:

This is an issue that, bizarrely, keeps affecting popular creators. PewDiePie apologised after yelling the word himself in a livestream in 2017. YouTuber Jake Paul was also seen saying the word in a leaked video.
Unsurprisingly, people weren't impressed:
Colonizers coming to the rescue. If I can not cuss at work & or in front of my parents. Y’all can pass over the N word. It’s really that simple. He sings a song um skip the word...but the song doesn’t even have N word in it. Which makes me think how’s he off stream hmm 🤔 pic.twitter.com/aO8ZEpMGtV— MOJOJOJO (@M0j0JOJO_) March 28, 2018
if he gonna try & rap the song he should’ve probably learned the lyrics before attempting this he wouldn’t have slipped🤷🏿♂️ but it’s not even in the song so how he just throw that in there💀— Axmbition🌴 (@Adubbz__) March 28, 2018
