Popular Twitch streamer Imane “Pokimane” Anys is no stranger to awkward encounters with fans, as evidenced by her hilarious confrontations in Fortnite Duos - one of which led to the “funniest shit” she’d ever heard.
Pokimane was in the middle of yet another Duos run when she ran into a young player, who tried to make her guess his age.
After initially claiming he was nine, he revealed himself to be 13 years old - but that wasn’t the only shocker he’d be delivering during their game, by far.
The fan went on to claim that he was receiving tons of messages via the PlayStation Network due to playing with Pokimane while she was streaming - some of which allegedly contained questionable content.
“One person told me to tell you that you’re thick,” the player said. “I’m like, no thank you.”
“But you kinda just did it, you know?” Pokimane challenged.
“No, I wasn’t telling you that you were thick - I was telling myself that I was thick,” the fan backtracked.

That wasn’t the only hilarious moment to come out of their game, either: the fan even claimed that he was getting some offensive offers in his inbox while they played.
“Somebody just said that I will give you $500 if you say the n-word on stream,” he continued. “I don’t want to say the n-word. I’m a Christian.”
This statement caused Pokimane to laugh out loud, later admitting that it was “the funniest shit I’ve ever heard.”
This wouldn’t be the first time Pokimane has had hilarious interactions with young fans: in fact, the streamer had a humorous confrontation with a 15-year-old queue sniper in early April, who humbly admitted that he had, indeed, queue sniped her.
“[I did it] just to play with you,” the player admitted. “I think you’re a generally nice person.”

However, Pokimane’s online popularity and frequent activity in the Fortnite scene can, at times, lead to negative interactions younger fans in the game, as seen when one child fan made explicit comments toward the streamer in August 2018.
While not every fan meeting is positive, this latest interaction gave Pokimane a gut-busting laugh - and likely a fond memory to look back on.
