Fortnite – but she’s recently delved into Minecraft, a game that saw an equally hilarious interaction between herself and a fellow streamer.

While Pokimane continues to play Fortnite, she, like many other streamers, has hopped on the recent Minecraft craze, often broadcasting the game alongside fellow streamer “Fitz.”

Although she and Fitz often share funny moments in the game, her September 4 broadcast saw a downright comedic incident after a donator “exposed” Pokimane’s gaming partner.

Pokimane, InstagramPokimane is one of Twitch’s most popular female streamers, recently hopping on the Minecraft train to hilarious results.

Pokimane interrupted her stream to share the donation with Fitz, pausing their conversation to read the message aloud.

“Um, I just got a donation that I think I need to share with you,” she began. “…‘Hi there, Pokimane. I am the moderator of r/pokimanefeet. I would like to report some interesting data. Someone by the name of Fitz has been on our Reddit for an oddly long amount of time. Just thought you’d like to know in case you know this person.’”

Rather than coming up with a humorous response, Fitz actually ended their Discord call – and even abruptly ended his stream, as though embarrassed that he got “called out.”

In fact, his charade was so convincing that Pokimane thought he had actually ended his stream after getting outed for using the subreddit.

“Wait, is he actually ending?” she cried. “I thought it was a meme! Wait – tell me you guys are trolling. Oh, he fake ended. This isn’t a real end.”

As it so happens, the r/pokimanefeet subreddit only boasts a single post, which is tied to an imgur link labeled “best feet on Twitch.”

While unsuspecting fans might think they’re in for a pic of Pokimane’s tooties, the link actually sends them to a photo of popular streamer Dr Disrespect, instead – a fitting troll for a hilarious concept.

Although the donator was obviously joking about Fitz using the subreddit, his response made for a comedic moment that will forever live in the annals of Twitch shenanigans.


Viewer who sued Twitch for $25M over “simp culture” denied by judge

Erik Estavillo, the Twitch viewer who sued the platform for $25 million in damages for exposing him to “overly suggestive and sexual content from various female streamers” including Pokimane and Alinity while using the site has had his case denied by a California court.

Back in June of 2020 Estavillo, who has previously sued Microsoft, Sony, Nintendo and Blizzard, filed a lawsuit against Twitch in the Santa Clara Superior Court of California.

According to the lawsuit, Twitch’s “twisted programming net code” combined with OCD and sex addiction made it nearly impossible for him to use Twitch without being exposed to “sexual content.”

Estavillo named a number of female streamers in his complaint, including Pokimane, Alinity, Amouranth, and others, while requesting they be “permanently banned,” however, it doesn’t seem like the court agreed he had a case.

Pokimane and others no longer have to fear being “permanently banned” as Estavillo requested.

In the tentative ruling posted by the court, the judge said the main problem with Estavillo’s case was the evidence he brought forward wasn’t enough to support the claims in his lawsuit.

“The “exhibits” submitted by Plaintiff [Estavillo] with his opposition do not identify, much less support, any claims under California law,” the ruling reads.

Basically, after the lawsuit was filed lawyers representing Twitch made a motion with the court to dismiss it, and the court did “with prejudice.” That means this saga seems to be over, once and for all, and can’t be brought back to court.

Alinity lies in her bed
A lot of people questioned how far Estavillo would get with his case by blaming some of the biggest female Twitch streamers.

Despite this, the self-described Twitch addict has said he plans on appealing this ruling to the 6th District Court of Appeals, but whether or not things will fare any differently for him there remains to be seen.

Estavillo, who was following 786 female streamers and 0 male streamers at the time of the complaint back in June, said he wanted $25 million from Twitch, along with having all of the female streamers he had mentioned “permanently banned.” With the court’s decision though, that happening now seems slimmer than ever.
