Pokimane calls out “broke” viewers who criticized price of her cookies
Twitch star Pokimane has called out her “broke” fans who have criticized the price of her controversial Myna cookies.
On November 13, streaming sensation Pokimane unveiled her new company Myna, releasing healthy chocolate ‘Midnight Mini Cookies’ infused with Vitamin D. Almost immediately after the announcement, controversy began as fans spotted a near-identical product at Costco and at a way cheaper price.
However, fans then began criticizing the price of the product which is priced at $7 per bag, which can only be purchased in a a 4-pack, 8-pack, and 12-pack.
Pokimane mocks “broke” fans over Myna cookie price
The Twitch star has now hit back, where in a recent November 18 live stream she called out her “broke” fans who have criticized the price of her cookies.
“When people are like ‘oh my god $28 for cookies’. It’s four bags, that’s $7 per bag. I know, I know math is hard when you’re an idiot. But, if you’re a broke boy just say so.”
Replying to the clip on Twitter/X, hundreds of users called out the Twitch star, slamming her as being “insensitive” and “out of touch.”
“She might have responded in one of the worst ways possible,” said one. “She is being so insensitive,” wrote another.
“I like Poki but this is so out of touch and privileged,” a third replied.
Pokimane has since apologized to her fans for the comment, claiming she only meant it as a “joke.” The Twitch star has also revealed that she will “continue to consider pricing” of her Myna cookies.
