During the interview, there comes a question saying "Does Ninja get paid by Fortnite?"Ninja was happy to address on the topic, stating that he never got paid by Epic Games to promote the game.

He says "I have to be really careful about this and think about this because, I don't want to misspeak", "I don't think that I've been payed by them for doing anything. They've done for everyone like the Support-A-Creator code, and they didn't pay me to promote the game so no, Fortnite hasn't paid me to play the game.

Ninja's appearance on the WIRED interview has got some negativity and backlash, the video has already got more than 169,000 dislikes making the video most disliked video in the series.

Ninja has been getting lot of hate in the recent times because he has been reporting some good players for killing him and the reason he is telling everyone is that those guys are stream sniping, his old videos also got leaked where he makes fun of female Twitch streamers and abuses a kid. Even if someone killed Ninja fair and square, he accused them of stream sniping and he made Fortnite ban their accounts.
