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.

TikTok star Sienna Mae faced backlash from fans after she posted a TikTok of herself going on a spontaneous trip to Hawaii.

TikToker Sienna Mae found herself at the receiving end of criticism recently after she posted a TikTok implying that she had gone to Hawaii to surprise her boyfriend, fellow TikTok star Jack Wright.

In a video posted on her TikTok, she can be seen receiving a text from her boo, who was already in Hawaii, saying how he “wished [she] was here” before throwing clothes in a suitcase, driving to the airport and surprising Wright on a Hawaiian beach.

Due to the current health crisis, fans didn’t react well to Mae’s trip. Several TikTok users reminded Mae in the comments that “we are in a p*ndemic”, with one TikTok user quipping that they “can’t even go to the store” due to the current restrictions.

In response to the backlash, Mae commented on her original TikTok claiming that she flew to Hawaii for work and had tested negative prior to her arrival.

Mae reassured fans that she had tested negative and was taking all the necessary precautions during her trip.

However, for fans on Twitter, this wasn’t good enough. One user said: “She’s privileged enough to have a job that she can comfortably work from home with and make thousands of dollars a DAY. Why exactly does she have to go to Hawaii?”

Meanwhile, another Twitter user cast doubt over Mae’s claims, joking: “Yeah right! I’d like to know what job lets you run off to Hawaii! How can I get hired there?”

Mae is yet to publicly comment further on this backlash.

Who is Sienna Mae?

Alongside her work as an influencer, Sienna Mae is also an outspoken advocate for body positivity.

Many would be intimidated by such a rapid rise to fame, but in an interview with The NetLine in September, Mae said: “I love it. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This is what I have been saying I’ve wanted to do ever since I came out of the womb. I’m really happy and I really am thankful for the support. I am ecstatic about my TikTok fame.”

Mae has been dating Jack Wright since October, with the two confirming their relationship with a kiss at Saddle Ranch on 12 October. She met Wright at the high school they both attend.
