Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has called out YouTuber Matthew ‘MMG’ Meagher for comments he made about the streamer in a video.

Meagher recently made a ‘Smash or Pass’ video about YouTubers, and when the topic of Pokimane came up, stated that he “hates her” and felt she was popular because people find her attractive, not because she is talented.

“It’s so obvious what she’s doing,” continued Meagher. “She’s not a titty streamer, you can’t put it that far. She’ll just pretend that she’s so oblivious to the fact that people watch her because she’s a hot girl, you know what’s happening here.”

Pokimane was then sent this clip, and reacted to the video while streaming. Anys was not impressed with the YouTuber’s comments, calling him out for what she felt was a hypocritical stance regarding her content.

“Wait a second. Can I just say, this dude is hating on me because people are attracted to the way that I look, and I don’t always outwardly talk about that,” stated Pokimane. “Yet he is doing smash or pass content. He is literally talking about whether or not he would have sex with other girls who didn’t even ask him.”

“How are you going to hate on me because people are attracted to me, yet you’re sitting here actually talking about whether or not you would bang random girls on the internet.”

Pokimane is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch with over 2.3 million followers. She also has an impressive 2.5 million subscribers on YouTube.

The popular content creator originally rose to fame while streaming League of Legends, but has seen huge success since making the switch to Fortnite Battle Royale.

Meagher has yet to comment on Pokimane’s reaction to his video, refraining from posting anything about the situation on YouTube or his social media accounts.

Travis Scott and PlayStation tease new PS5 “Cactus Jack” Nike Dunks

Travis Scott has revealed a new “TS5” teaser with PlayStation, which features a brief glimpse showcasing what appears to be a PS5 and Cactus Jack collaboration on a pair of Nike Dunk lows.

The 2020 king of collaborations, Scott, continues to up the ante. This time, he and Sony partnered to put together a teaser video, which is an obvious ode to the infamous Maxell “Blown Away Guy” advertisements from 1980.

In the social media commercial, Sony’s PlayStation headquarters are shown, followed by a few different employees who represent different aspects of the new console’s development (platform, design, and engineering). Afterward, Scott sits down, powers on a PS5, and is literally blown away.

Each employee is rocking some of Scott’s Cactus Jack merchandise, including one wearing a pair of his iconic Jordan 1 lows and one wearing a similar design, but on a pair of Nike Dunk lows. In the corner, a PS logo can be noticed by the sneaker’s heel.

It’s a short and sweet video, starting with some foreshadowing and teasing of the collaboration before finishing with a direct promotion for the PS5. An employee is seen wearing the PS5 Cactus Jack Dunks and then later, Scott himself appears to be wearing them as he kicks back and turns on the console.

In what might be obvious to those who have a keen eye for historic marketing content, the ending Scott portion of the clip is nearly a direct recreation of Maxell’s original ads from a couple decades ago. Those ads featured someone turning on one of the brand’s cassette tapes and experiencing the media quite physically. 

Similarly, Scott’s clothing, hair, and surrounding furniture are simultaneously hit with an unrelenting gust as soon as he powers on the PS5.

With the announcement from Sony that Scott has been enlisted as a “strategic creative partner,” it’s unclear exactly what the extent of this collaboration could mean. At the very least, fans can expect the two to work together on more projects.

One such project could be a pair of Cactus Jack sneakers, which would mean a three-way collab between Nike, Sony, and Scott’s own personal brand.

Scott’s sneaker collaborations typically sell out very quickly and then dominate the resale market, where resellers net huge profits just by lucking out and being among the first to invest in his reworked designs.

This sneaker follows the original Jordan 1 design, with an inverted swoosh logo on the outside, but in a contrasting colorway. Similarly, it seems to feature a PS5 logo at the heel (as other Nike and PlayStation collaborations have). It’s unknown whether these will be made available to the public or if they will be a “friends and family” symbolic release.
