Soulja Boy Says He “Made” Nintendo’s Reggie Fils-Aime Retire, Gamers Clapped Back
Soulja Boy is no stranger to controversy in the gaming world, especially after his knock-off consoles had to be put to rest following Nintendo having something to say about them. That said, it would appear that the rapper is up to his antics once more, this time claiming that he “made” Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime retire, and gamers simply were not having any part of it.
Following Fils-Aime’s announcement, Soulja Boy tweeted this gem of a mistake:
I made him retire 🤷🏾♂️ https://t.co/ibQiCfIHjZ

Needless to say, the Internet, gamers in particular, had a few things to say about Soulja Boy’s claim.

Literally you are a singles rapper who hasn’t been relevant in many years and had to push a bootleg game console to find some semblance of relevancy. You are the last person who should be talking about retirement.

However, it may have been Reggie Fils-Amie himself who said it best:

There’s a good chance that Soulja Boy is just trying to get a rise out of people and stir the pot a bit, but with his failed knock-off consoles, the thoughts of starting his own esports team, and much more, it makes one wonder if it’s entirely possible that he actually believe he made Reggie retire.
