Deadmau5‘s relationship with Twitch streamer and online personality Ninja has always been… odd. The two’s interactions have at times been hotly vicious, and other times calm and cordial.

But when it comes down to it, money talks. During a recent stream for charity, Deadmau5 dropped a cool $500 watching Ninja play Fortnite – and because of their history and perception on social media, deadmau5 even had to hop on Twitter to say, “No, that was really me.”

Watch the moment of the donation in the video below, as well as other funny moments from the stream marathon.
