Ninja's "It's Just a Game" Tweet refers to a copypasta inspired by a tweet from popular Fortnite streamer and gamer Ninja wherein he attempted to motivate gamers to aspire to challenge themselves to improve their skills. His tweet reads, "The phrase 'it’s just a game' is such a weak mindset. You are ok with what happened, losing, imperfection of a craft. When you stop getting angry after losing, you’ve lost twice. There’s always something to learn, and always room for improvement, never settle." The tweet was mocked by people who commented that it was an extremely harsh mindset and others who joked that the tweet reflected their attitude when playing a casual game.

Others commented on the attitude of the tweet, taking the stance that games should be fun and Ninja's tweet took them too seriously. User @pukicho commented to that effect, writing, "Nerd thinks he's life guru after playing a bideo game gooder than the rest of us. Oprah Winfrey-ass, blue hair-ass looking ass. Games should be fun. Man. That's what most people play them for," gaining over 110 retweets and 700 likes (shown below, left). Professional gamer @RiotAzael wrote, "Hard disagree. You don't need to get angry about a loss to grow from it. Take what you can learn from each loss, focus on what you can do differently next time & how to improve / apply that. Anger isn't helping you improve, it's making you irrational and clouding judgment." Jokes and commentary on Ninja's tweet was covered by StayHipp.
