Imane “Pokimane” Anys is more than a top streamer in her own right: she’s also part of the streaming group “OfflineTV,” which is suffering from a content thief posing as the organization on YouTube.

OfflineTV is a broadcasting group comprised of several popular Twitch streamers, including Pokimane, Lily “LilyPichu” Ki, “Fedmyster,” and Jeremy “Disguised Toast” Wang, among others.

However, it seems that a potential fan of the group has decided to use OfflineTV’s content for their own purposes, creating a YouTube channel that uses clips from the group’s broadcasts as highlights.

Offline TV Highlights, YouTubeA channel is posing as popular streaming group “OfflineTV” – and Pokimane wants them to stop.

That’s not all: the channel even appears to be posing as the org, with their “About” section reading, “We’re Offline TV! We are a group of content creators who got our start in gaming. Now we live in a house together and make cool videos.”

Pokimane addressed this fake channel during a broadcast on November 29, where she explained that she’d left numerous comments on their videos urging the poster to stop using her content, since she’s made another account for such highlights.

“If you’re watching this, I want you to know – please stop,” she pleaded. “Like I am personally asking you, just don’t use my stuff, okay? And if other people – I don’t think they want you to use their stuff, either… but they can make that decision for themselves.”

However, it doesn’t look like her pleas got her very far, causing her to reach out to her own fanbase for help.

Since it seems that her own efforts aren’t enough, Anys asked her fans to leave similar comments on the channel’s uploads, in hopes that the impersonator will see her plea and discontinue uploading her content.

“…if you guys do see this channel posting our stuff, feel free to comment,” she continued. “Maybe he didn’t see me comment, and be like, ‘Poki doesn’t want you using her stuff, please and thank you.’”

YouTubeBoth Pokimane and her fans are pleading with the impersonator to discontinue using her content.

While the channel is still active as of writing this article, fans have since flooded the account’s comments section asking them to stop their thievery – although they have yet to respond to the community’s cries.


Pokimane responds to transphobia accusations after Discord DMs emerge

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
