Streaming star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys took the job of moderating Twitch chat into her own hands as she delivered a killer blow to one rude viewer who told her to ‘shut up.’

When streamers become popular on Twitch, they usually just have to worry about putting on a good show and keeping their fans engaged. That is usually the story for someone like Pokimane who has almost four million followers on the livestreaming platform.

However, now and again, they sometimes have to take matters into their own hands and show their moderators how things are done when viewers get a little out of hand.

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s most popular streamers and usually has people moderating her chat.

That was the case during Pokimane’s February 8 stream, as she was interrupted by a rude viewer. The streamer paused the clip she was watching and pulled up her chat on-screen – showing that a recent message had told her that she needed to “shut the f**k up,” even though it was her own channel. 

“You know what’s so funny? When people are in my chat saying stuff like this and they want me to shut up, but I can literally make them shut up forever,” Poki said as she immediately dished out a ban and began laughing. 

“Like, I can actually do that! And he’s still sitting at home watching me talk – look, I’m talking and you, you can’t say anything! Now what, you know, now what?” Pokimane added, leaving her chat in floods of laughter as they spammed the chat. 

Of course, as Poki showed, its never a good idea to try and dictate to a streamer on their very own channel – especially when they’re someone like her who keeps chat up and open to one side of the screen.

Maybe next time, the trolls might get lucky and have a similar message slip through the cracks, but they should be aware that the streamer is watching and isn’t afraid to dish out a suspension. 


Alexandra Botez responds to creepy Twitch viewer asking to see her feet

Twitch streamer and chess guru Alexandra Botez wasn’t going to put up with trolls asking to see her feet during a live stream.

During the broadcast, as Botez was challenging players in chess, a viewer decided to ask the streamer if they could see her feet – something that promoted a hilarious response from Alexandra.

“Sir, you’re not seeing… you know what,” the frustrated streamer began, before pausing with a smirk. “I’m going to show you what’s on my feet, and you’re going to stop asking.”

With that, the 25-year-old lifted up her shoe and showed it off in front of the camera.

“I’m wearing these clogs, okay? This is all you need to know. And if you would ask me that in person, I would turn into Romanian Botez,” she added.

Next, Alexandra pretended to smack the person with her clog while rambling on in Romanian.

“And I would hit you in the head with my shoe,” she warned. “And you wouldn’t see feet because your vision would be blurry.”

Amusingly, after that whole rant, the streamer went right back into challenging whoever she wanted to play next, as if the whole foot fiasco never even happened.

Fans have requested feet before

This isn’t the first time that Alexandra has been asked to show her feet, oddly enough. Earlier in 2020, a viewer donated $3 and asked the streamer to reveal her highly fetishized body part.

Instead of showing them off, however, she simply drew a foot on a piece of paper and held it up for the camera, which confused her two on-stream guests.

“Someone donated to show feet,” she explained, prompting some laughs in the chat.

While Botez has handled the foot remarks quite well thus far, the next time someone dares to ask the chess queen to slip off her shoes to expose her feet, they could be getting a clog to the skull.
