KEEMSTAR published a Tweet on December 27, which he linked to a video created by YouTuber ‘Memology’ called ‘Pokimane: Gotta Strike Them All.’

“You are abusing the copyright system, Pokimane!” KEEM wrote. “DO BETTER!”

The video, uploaded on December 22, detailed the story of a YouTuber by the name of ‘Bowblax,’ who had received a copyright strike on his channel for using a clip from one of Pokimane’s Twitter videos.

Memology went on to showcase a clip from Pokimane’s Twitch stream, where she vehemently denounced users for using her and other creators’ content in their videos.

“Well, I’m so sorry that it takes you a lot of time to steal other people’s content,” she stated in response to one YouTuber. “I am so sorry. ...I’ll be taking down some of your videos.”

To further prove their point, Memology then featured a clip of Pokimane reacting to another YouTuber’s video on her stream, claiming that she was using creators’ content in a similar manner.

While Pokimane has yet to speak out on the accusations, this isn’t the first time she and KEEMSTAR have butted heads; the two likewise went back and forth in a spat in early November (which, coincidentally, is what Bowblax's copyrighted video was all about), after KEEM called out a fan of streamer ‘SSSniperwolf’ in a savage series of Tweets that ended up inciting a heated conversation on harassment and online bullying.
