Ninja built a huge following playing Fortnite, that other little free-to-play battle shooter that you might have heard of. 'There's lots of stuff that has been datamined from Apex since launch and is swirling around the Internet.

Ninja was reportedly paid £1 million by Electronic Arts to promote Apex Legends. At the time, though, I was not aware of exactly how much EA was paying streamers like Ninja and Dr. Disrespect.

From the wording of the bug itself, and unconfirmed reports of conversations with EA Support, it is likely that the bug was caused by the Apex Servers attempting to distribute items to players that haven't actually been put into the game yet. Beyond the initial paid streams, though, appearances were of their own volition. This will surely surge even more when Apex Legends drops its Battle Pass sometime in the near future.
