Ninja and Pokimane clash over JiDion hate raid – Ninja threatens legal action
After Twitch turned JiDion’s ban from a 14-day one to a permanent one, Ninja and Pokimane have been calling each other out (and things are escalating).
For those who didn’t know, JiDion received a 14-day ban from Twitch after sending a ‘hate raid’ to Pokimane, which led to her ending her stream early. Twitch eventually turned the decision into a permanent ban for the creator. Pokimane spoke out about the situation recently during her stream and called out comments made by Ninja, more specifically use of certain offensive language and him doubling down on helping JiDion.
According to her, Ninja said “you can’t go around raiding bitches.” While he didn’t say the exact sentence, he did refer to her like that. Pokimane further questioned why Ninja is helping someone who actively harassed her on-stream, even going so far as supposedly “texting his Twitch representative” to help get the ban revoked, even if it was just a joke.

Now things have seemingly escalated, as Ninja’s wife Jessica Blevins has gotten involved as well. Pokimane shared a DM from her where she threatened legal action against her. “We are considering everything defamation of character at this point and are getting our legal team involved. You are spewing lies to tens of thousands of people.” Many streamers have already come to Pokimane’s aid and have been defending her for speaking out, pointing back to the original clip of Ninja speaking to JiDion. Ninja and his wife have yet to respond since the DM was posted to Twitter.
