Pokimane in disbelief at the immaturity of the RuneScape community

Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left speechless after encountering a group of immature, but admittedly creative, players during her adventures on Old School RuneScape.

Pokimane is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch and recently hit 3 million followers on the platform, becoming only the 13th person to reach such a milestone, beating the likes of Lirik and Tyler1 to the landmark.

The streamer tweeted out on May 16 looking to gauge whether her audience would be interested in watching her play the popular online role-playing game, Old School RuneScape, and received an overwhelmingly positive response.

Old School RuneScape was launched back in February 2013 but remains hugely popular.

She eventually decided to stream the game before a number of players were able to track down her location in game and managed to create an immature piece of art which was visible on the minimap.

It appeared a group of more than 30 users banded together and formed a phallic shape which left Pokimane lost for words.

“The minimap – you guys made a…” she said with a look of shock on her face.

The 23-year-old did praise the efforts of the players who successfully stayed in formation to create plenty of laughs in her Twitch chat. “That is some impressive coordination,” she said, “I won’t even lie. RuneScape is something else.”

However, it was confirmed on Reddit that the art was created by bots which allow one player to control as many as 20 accounts at one time.

It proved to be the final straw for Pokimane with Old School RuneScape, as she swiftly moved over to Fortnite Battle Royale following the encounter.

Charli D’Amelio defends Addison Rae, tells TikTok haters to “shut up”

TikTok queen Charli D’Amelio has had enough of internet critics, telling trolls to buzz off in a pointed Instagram Live broadcast where she defended names like Addison Rae against body-shaming users.

It’s no secret that the internet can be a brutal place. The advent of social media has allowed people from all over the world to connect with one another, for better or for worse — and not everyone has a positive outlook on life.

From the average Instagram user to social media stars like Addison Rae, it seems that no one is above criticism from internet trolls, causing some users to completely lock down their accounts while others have learned to handle the negativity with a swift block.

Not everyone can drown out the negativity, though, especially if there’s a lot of it, and it seems that Charli D’Amelio has taken notice of quite a few negative comments about her fellow TikTokers.

“Quite honestly, I know I look good,” Charli said while doing her makeup in an October Instagram Live. “Addison should know she looks good. Maddie should know she looks good. Cynthia should know she looks good. Like, shut up!”

“Keep it to yourself!” she continued.

“If you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say it at all. People say like, such rude things to like, Sissy Sheridan. Sissy is so beautiful. Literally one of the most beautiful girls I know. You’re mad that she doesn’t cuss? How is that affecting you?”

“Even like, Bella Poarch,” the TikTok star added. “She uses the face zoom filter, and she looks good doing it. You guys gave her the likes. Don’t go back on what you said, because she has a lot of followers.”

It’s no secret that the celebs she mentioned have been getting quite a lot of backlash lately; from Bella Poarch being accused of acting childlike on purpose to trolls body-shaming Addison Rae’s curves, it looks like Charli has simply had enough of the negativity.

She’s not wrong for pointing it out, either. Reports state that the current global health crisis has seen a dramatic rise in cyberbullying, and a quick look at comments on TikTok show that this isn’t a mistruth.

In these times, it’s always good to remember Bill and Ted’s classic saying: “Be excellent to each other.”
