Twitch star and internet personality Imane “Pokimane” Anys is no stranger to being labeled as “thicc” online — but one fan took the comment a bit too far after meeting up with her in real life.

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s top broadcasters, boasting more than 3.8 million followers due to her popular gaming live streams and hilarious interactions with fans.

However, the star is also known for a specific term that is often linked with her in Google searches: namely “thicc,” which denotes a curvy figure.

Imane “Pokimane” Anys is often searched alongside another term, which a fan used to describe her after scoring a picture together.

While she has addressed the topic before, appearing to find the connotation somewhat humorous, she couldn’t help but roll her eyes at a fan who recoginzed her while she was shopping at a mall.

According to Pokimane, the fan asked for a photo, which he then posted to Instagram with the caption, “Just met Poki, she’s so f*cking thicc.”

Pokimane is known for her hilarious interactions with fans – one of which took an unexpected turn after a surprise IRL meetup.

Of course, the streamer couldn’t help but call out the viewer during her broadcast, claiming that she knew he was a fan of her Fortnite content and that he could have been a bit more tactful with his Instagram caption.

“Bro this one time — and I knew this was a Fortnite viewer — this guy saw me at the mall, and he was like, ‘Oh my god, are you Poki? Can we take a photo?’” she recounted. “…to be fair, I was looking pretty thicc in the picture, but like…still, you know, you could be a little nicer about it.”

As previously mentioned, this isn’t the first time Anys has spoken out about the “thicc” term: in fact, she addressed the matter during a YouTube “Google search” video in 2019, where she noted the absurd amount of fake photos that have taken rise due to her popularity.

“There’s a particular other term that is searched alongside my name,” she laughingly admitted. “The problem with this being the most searched term is that I’ve even seen some articles that think my last name is ‘Thicc.’”

No matter the case, it doesn’t look like Pokimane is outrunning the “thicc” comments anytime soon, despite being well-established in her professional streaming career.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
