Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to speculation and rumors about her love life, which she addressed in a June 21 YouTube video discussing fans’ assumptions about her private affairs.

Thanks to Pokimane’s status as one of Twitch’s most popular female streamers, she suffers constant questioning about her romantic escapades, with fans and critics alike pairing her with other streamers on the platform.

However, Pokimane hit back at these accusations in her YouTube video on the subject, humorously declaring that she isn’t currently dating anyone in spite of the rumors.

Pokimane, TwitterPokimane is one of Twitch’s top female content creators, boasting over three million followers on the site.

“NO!” Anys shouted when approached with the question, explaining that she wouldn’t want to make her relationship public, even if she were dating someone.

“I don’t know if I would like, really want to put my relationship out there one I get into one,” she continued. “For example, I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of couples out there who make their relationship public. …when they break up, they have to make that public, too. I don’t know if I wanna go through that, know what I’m saying?”

Pokimane went on to explain that she doesn’t keep her love life private in hopes of gaining more thirsty fans, as many female streamers are accused of doing.

“A big reason why it bothers me to read stuff like this… is because I don’t think there’s anything I particularly do that justifies that assumption,” she said of the matter. “…I love communicating with my entire audience or random people however I can. I don’t like putting a price amount on it.”

Pokimane, Twitter / Yassuo, TwitchFans and critics alike constantly speculate about Pokimane’s love life, pairing her with fellow streamers like HasanAbi and her housemate, Fedmyster.

This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has hit back at accusations of hiding a relationship from fans, either; the streamer addressed speculation between herself and Twitch streamer HasanAbi on June 15, calling the rumors surrounding them “gross.”

“I really don’t like this,” Pokimane said of a meme about the two streamers. “Ehh…. nu-uh. You know, I actually tried… to separate myself from people once all that started happening. It was just gross.”

Pokimane has a huge following on Twitch, boasting over 3 million subscribers on the site as of June 21.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
