Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to on-stream hijinks – but one broadcast hit her with a prank that left her shaken up.

Pokimane was in the middle of a broadcast on March 29 when a viewer pulled the classic ‘knock knock’ prank, playing a series of incredibly realistic sounding knocks that nearly made the streamer jump out of her skin.


“Stop!” Pokimane said, after letting out an astonished gasp at the noise – likely thinking that someone was at her bedroom door. “I hate that! I’m sensitive right now! I hate you!”

That wasn’t the only hilarious moment to come out of that particular stream, either; Pokimane also got in a discord call with a young fan, who she noted was up “past her bedtime.”


The fan explained that, as it was the weekend, she didn’t have anything “important” to do the next day – leading to a humorous response from her mother.

“Of course you do!” the fan’s mother replied. “You have [indistinguishable] to do!”

“Mom! I’m talking to Pokimane!” the fan answered.


Pokimane broke out into uncontrollable laughter at the interaction and even asked the fan to tell their mother she said hi.

Pokimane, TwitterPokimane has had a series of hilarious on-stream moments, including a slew of odd interactions with young fans.

This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has had hilarious meetings with younger fans, by far; the streamer was even baited by an eight-year-old Fortnite player in early March, after he left her an emotional message in the game asking to talk.

“I’m not having a good day and I want to talk to you,” player ‘RileyOMG123’ messaged. “I want someone to cheer me up. Please, I’m crying.”


While Pokimane acquiesced the youngster’s request with good intentions, it turned out that Riley had set up the streamer just to get in a few games with his friends, giggling as she entered the lobby.

Unfortunately, some of Pokimane’s other interactions with fans are not as wholesome, as evidenced by an instance in which one young, male fan went a little overboard when flirting with the streamer.


While the youngster later apologized for his NSFW comments, Pokimane continues to be a target for odd, sometimes inappropriate fan encounters online – as well as hilarious pranks pulled by her viewers.


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
