Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left distraught after she accidentally killed her dog in Minecraft and was immediately on the hunt for a new pet sidekick. 

Despite being released all the way back in 2009, Minecraft has hit major popularity once again on both YouTube and Twitch. Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg has been able to reach 100 million subscribers with his Minecraft series, while Twitch streamers like Pokimane have jumped on board with their own realms and begun playing with friends.

However, it’s not all sunshine and rainbows as Poki herself has discovered – as one wrong swing of a sword, or even a shovel, can cause the ultimate heartbreak.

During her September 6 stream, the popular broadcaster had been playing alongside Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos when she began clearing out some grass and dirt that had appeared among her sandy shore. As she broke the final few pieces, Poki was horrified to find that her pet dog had become trapped under the falling sand and was dying.

“Oh my god, my dog!” she called out, before quickly trying to dig him free. “No! No, no, my dog,” the streamer added before being greeted with a death message. GreekGodx couldn’t help but laugh at her heartache, however, even though Pokimane was genuinely disappointed. 

After continuing to play for a few more moments, all the while still completely stunned, Pokimane finally offered up some words to her viewers.

The streamer said: “I can’t believe I just killed my dog by accident. I didn’t even know that was a thing.” After another brief pause, Poki continued: “Oh my God, I’m so sad – I need a new dog.”

With this being Minecraft, acquiring a new dog isn’t too hard – you just need a decent stack of bones and a good slice of luck to stumble across a wild animal. 

Amid the heartbreak, it remains to be seen if Poki will continue with her hilarious stream of Mojang’s sandbox title or if something else will take her fancy in the long run.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
