Twitch star Imane “Pokimane” Anys is well-known for her humorous interactions with random Duos in Fortnite — but one of these duo fills took an awkward turn that no one saw coming.

Pokimane often records her Fortnite sessions with other random players, many of whom are young children who are shocked to actually be playing with the famous streamer.

However, not all of these players are young — nor innocent, as she found out during one of her Duo Fill excursions in mid-March.

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers, passing a milestone of 4 million subscribers earlier this month.

Pokimane’s Duo Fill adventure took place on International Women’s Day, a fact that she made sure to mention to her fellow players over the mic to get their reaction — but it wasn’t the holiday that spurred some vitriol from one of her teammates.

The player apparently wasn’t impressed by her quirky sense of humor, after she joked about the exclusive Ninja skin he was wearing and asked if he was really the streamer.

“What are you talking about?” he asked in response. “Yeah I’m Ninja, you f**king b**ch, what about it?”

Pokimane used her teammate’s Ninja skin as a talking point – but he wasn’t impressed with her humor.

Needless to say, Anys was taken aback by his response, but managed to take the insult in stride by saying, “I was just wondering. …dude, two seconds in!”

That wasn’t the end of their surprising conversation, though; the tone took a quick 180 after she jokingly admitted her real identity to the player, who proceeded to overtly flirt with the streamer.

“Wait, are you a lady?” he asked.

“It is International Womens’ Day,” she answered.

Pokimane’s Fortnite excursions often involve young players – but this particular interaction took an unexpected turn.

“So you are. How old are you?” he continued.

“Old enough,” she replied.

“Old enough to what? (Censored)”

The teammate went on to flirt with Pokimane, announcing, “I wanna get to know you” — as if he hadn’t just insulted her before their match had even begun.

This Fortnite player’s attempt at flirting backfired in a hilarious fashion.

Anys was left floored by their interaction, which continued in a similar fashion throughout the game.

“That was a very… interesting game,” she said of their conversation. “Is that common? ‘I wanna get to know you, baby girl.’ Hmmm.”

Despite his best efforts, it doesn’t look like coming on strong is the best way to win Pokimane’s heart — nor insulting her, for that matter.

Popular YouTuber Felix ‘PewDiePie’ Kjellberg criticized viewers who flood his wife Marzia’s Instagram account every time he makes a comment on it to support her. The Swede hit out at the “simp” meme becoming overused.

With over 108 millions subscribers to his channel in 2020, PewDiePie is not only one of the platform’s biggest creators, but undoubtedly one of the most popular entertainers in the world.

The YouTuber has also become an icon when it comes to internet humor. In November, the star called out viewers overusing the popular “simp” meme every time he supports his wife Marzia, and explained why he’s tired of reading it.

PewDiePie hits out at “simp” comments flooding Marzia’s Instagram

While the modern use of “simp” goes back as far as the 1980s, the term has exploded in popularity in 2020, becoming one of the year’s biggest memes. However, during his November 27 upload, PewDiePie explained why it’s starting to become too much on Instagram.

“Instagram is even worse. I commented on Marzia’s post, and I swear to God every single comment… She painted the kitchen and I said “you did so good” because I know she worked hard on it. And it’s just “simp, simp, simp king” every single comment. It is so unfunny. Jesus Christ, dude!” the YouTuber exclaimed.

The star then went on to mock the way memes become tired quickly due to users jumping on the bandwagon and spamming it relentlessly online in comments. “Maybe if everyone says a joke, it becomes funnier,” he said sarcastically.

Hilariously, the star had a follow-up to the situation on November 30 when one fan pointed out that they actually had made a nice comment on Marzia’s Instagram post. “Me understanding that he just wants to be a good husband,” they wrote days prior. PewDiePie then apologized to the viewer. “I’m sorry tg_man 12. I did you dirty, I did you dirty,” he laughed.

While the content creator has made several videos on the simp meme, he has been critical of how its been used in the past and mocked users for their broad use of it. Now it appears the joke is starting to overstay its welcome with how often it’s being repeated.

The 31-year-old has had an incredible year so far, making a successful move to streaming after signing a major deal with YouTube in May to broadcast live exclusively on their platform. The entertainer also surpassed over 108 million subscribers in November, making him the most followed individual on the platform.
