A Twitch streamer was left floored after being thrashed by an Overwatch player, who’d apparently lost her cool after being asked if she was Pokimane one too many times.

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is a hugely popular streamer on Twitch, best known for her hilarious undercover interactions with fans in games like Fortnite.

However, Pokimane isn’t known for playing Overwatch — but that didn’t stop fellow streamer ‘Somjuu’ from questioning if he was playing with the star during a competitive match in early April.

Pokimane is a hugely popular streamer on Twitch, leading to a bit of confusion between an Overwatch player and streamer during an April stream that quickly went off the rails.

Somjuu was on mic with a player named ‘Poki,’ prompting him to tentatively inquire if she was the internet celebrity so known for trolling players undercover.

However, her response was decidedly less enthusiastic, instead thrashing Somjuu for asking the question and implying that she had to be the “real Poki.”

“Is that an original callout about my name?” she asked sarcastically. “Holy s**t dude, you’re actually so hilarious, like I’ve never heard that before. Like, you’re actually so f**king funny, dude. Actually, I’m dying in my chair right now.”

Genji player “Somjuu” was left stunned after a player named “Poki” gave him a verbal thrashing for asking if she was the famous streamer by the same name.

Completely blindsided by the player’s unexpected response, Somjuu’s facial expression quickly turned bewildered, zooming in on his facecam as the player continued her rant.

“Like, I’ve never heard something so original!” she added. “You’re so funny! Holy f**k!”

“Woah woah woah, what the f**k did I say?” Somjuu asked in shock. “What the f**k? What did I do? What did I say wrong? Who’s Poki?”

Somjuu was finally able to get a response from the player, who clarified that she wasn’t offended, but rather found his comments lackluster.

“Let’s be honest — why did you get offended when I said, ‘It’s the real Poki?”

“I didn’t get offended, I’m just saying that you’re not funny,” she replied.

Unfortunately, it seems that Somjuu had this Poki confused with another streamer other than Pokimane — something that left the player confused, with Somjuu ultimately concluding that she was “tripping” over a simple miscommunication.

Their misunderstanding aside, Somjuu’s reaction to the conversation makes for a hilarious clip that everyone can relate to after unintentionally stepping on someone’s toes.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
