Imane Fortnite duos with random fans and even streams scream-inducing horror games (with hilarious results), the internet star isn’t above reacting to popular and controversial Twitch clips during her broadcasts.

Her eye-tracking challenge took these reactions to the next level, forcing her to shift her gaze from NSFW content as her audience watched – but a more recent search through viral Twitch clips incited a different reaction from Pokimane, altogether.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is one of Twitch’s top streamers, boasting an audience of over 3 million followers on the site.

Anys pulled up a Twitch clip of fellow streamer “LivStixs“ on September 18, who was attempting a poolside handstand in a bikini – a feat that she ultimately failed in performing.

The comical and NSFW nature of the clip left Pokimane speechless, covering her mouth with her hand in muted shock before dragging a series of question marks over the screen to express her confusion.

This led Pokimane to comment on streamers who might use Twitch’s IRL category as a way to duck the site’s guidelines on “appropriate” behavior, making sure to throw in humorous emote speak to prove her point.

“Listen, no BM (bad manners) to this lady,” she said of the video. “I’m sure she has a lovely Instagram, and I’m sure she, herself, is lovely as well – but what? …how do I say this? …You can tell that she’s using it as a loophole in order to be more suggestive than is typically appropriate – which I think is a little ‘Weirdchamp.’”

This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has reacted to NSFW material during a broadcast, either: as previously mentioned, the streamer underwent an eye-tracking challenge on September 14, which she ultimately failed, pausing and replaying a clip of a woman flexing her pecs with an awed response.

As one of the biggest faces on Twitch, Pokimane’s comments on NSFW material certainly hold weight, coming in wake of a significant ban for streamer “Amouranth” after an unfortunate incident left her exposed.

While Amouranth’s account has since been restored, she quickly became one of the site’s fastest growing channels – just one development of many that have viewers and streamers alike at odds with Twitch’s stance on what is and isn’t considered appropriate for its platform.

Joe Rogan was left shocked after hearing the crazy lengths that hugely popular American actor Matthew McConaughey’s went to to lose 50 pounds for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Joe Rogan has seen his fair share of top billed guests make his way into his podcast studios, both new and old. Some of his most well known guests include Elon Musk, Post Malone, and other famous faces across YouTube, business, Hollywood, and just about every conceivable entertainment sector.

He even recently set up a long anticipated episode with Kanye West, but their meeting was promptly cancelled along with several other episodes after one of the staff members revealed he needed to self-isolate.

However, fans of the podcast were treated to a huge celebrity from an entirely different industry in a prerecorded episode – actor Matthew McConaughey.

The 2013 was an enormous success, largely thanks to Matthew McConaughey’s highly regarded performance.

Matthew has starred in films such as the Wolf of Wall Street, Contact, and of course 2013 film Dallas Buyers Club. He enacted AIDS patient Ron Woodroof’s heartbreaking story, and underwent an enormous physical transformation for the role.

As he shares with Joe Rogan, the actor lost over 50 pounds in the process of preparing for the challenging acting experience, dedicating himself to accurately portraying the story as true to life as possible.

“I weighed 135. And you know this, I was not torturing myself,” Matthew explained. “I was militant. The hardest part was making the damn choice. It was my responsibility.”

Topic begins at 1:19

With regard to the process of losing the weight, the actor said that he gave himself five months of a diet consisting of “tapioca pudding or whatever, three egg whites in the morning. Five ounces of fish couple vegetables for lunch, five ounces of fish couple vegetables for dinner.”

He said this is the diet that caused him to lose an insane 2.5 pounds a week, without any exercise. However, Joe was shocked to hear that Matthew was able to drink “as much wine as he wanted to drink,” joking “what kind of diet is this?”

“What I learned from it is that the body is more resilient than we give it credit for. The power I lost from the neck down equally or more sublimated to the neck up. My mental gain was so acute and so on point, that I was clinically smart.”

The incredible story was an insight into just how dedicated the beloved actor is to his roles, and certainly stunned Joe and the podcast viewers.
