Popular Twitch streamer and YouTuber Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to trolls and harassment, thanks to her status as an internet star – but one of her strange eating habits is inciting some understandable confusion across the web.

Pokimane uploaded a YouTube video on June 21, where she responded to fans’ speculations and rumors about her private life.

Her video included everything from her career choices to her relationship status – and even touched on a hilarious moment captured during one of her streams.

While everyone else might eat their pizza with the topping side up, Pokimane chooses to eat her pies a different way – by placing the topping side down, resulting in more than a few confused queries as to why she eats pizza in such a strange manner.

“This is a public service announcement,” Pokimane began, holding up her hand. “Let’s say this is a pizza. All the toppings are here. The yummy part is here. Why would you put the yummy part on the roof of your mouth? You gotta flip the pizza, put the yummy part on your tongue so you can taste it.”

The streamer went on to encourage her audience to try her pizza-eating methods, asking them to give it a whirl before “cancelling” her in the comments section.

Pokimane wouldn’t be the first streamer to share her strange eating habits with the world, by far; controversial Twitch streamer Amouranth likewise turned heads in early February, after another broadcaster noticed that she didn’t chew her food while eating.

Amouranth later explained that the braces on her back teeth prevented her from chewing, as wax from the mouthpiece would come loose and hurt her tongue.

“I can’t chew my food bro,” she revealed during an episode of the ‘Scuffed’ podcast. “I have braces on the back of my teeth and if I chew my food, the wax comes off and my tongue gets cut up.”

Despite their oddities, both Amouranth and Pokimane continue to boast massive audiences on Twitch, with the streamers boasting over 1 million and 3 million followers on the platform as of June 22, respectively.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
