Twitch star Pokimane says that she’s making plans to head back to Canada in wake of the U.S. Supreme Court’s ruling overturning Roe v Wade.
Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is the most-followed woman on Twitch and one of the most-followed streamers on the website, overall.
Although Anys currently lives in Southern California with her two cats, she’s actually from Canada, where she and her mother immigrated from Morocco when she was around four years old.
That being said, she’s considering flying back to ‘The Great White North’ in wake of the recent US Supreme Court ruling.
On June 24, 2022, the United States Supreme Court overturned Roe v Wade, a 1973 case that ruled the Constitution protected a woman’s right to abortion.
Many influencers have been speaking out in wake of this ruling, including Pokimane, who shared her thoughts on the matter in a Twitch stream on the same day.
“The Roe v Wade news is absolutely terrible,” she said. “I tweeted about it. I retweeted a couple things. I faved a couple things. It’s just tough, because what more can we even say at this point?”
“We’ve said it all. It’s depressing. I booked a ticket back to Canada. Like, ya know?”
“It’s bothersome,” she continued. “I can’t even vote. And I’m giving these motherf**kers millions. Millions! …High key, I consider just dipping. Bye!”
She went on to “suggest we all collectively move elsewhere together” before moving on to other matters.
Although it’s unclear if Pokimane has actually made plans to move back North or not, it’s clear she’s upset with the current proceedings in the States, where she is the most searched Twitch streamer in the entire country.
