Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to receiving unwanted advances during her adventures online; but she has one humorous warning for fans who might be getting a little too thirsty.

Pokimane was jamming out to Beyonce’s ‘Check on It’ on April 25 when she decided to switch up the song’s lyrics to better suit her own circumstances.

“You can look at it, as long as you don’t make a ‘Thicc’ compilation,” Pokimane sang, giving a pointed look into her webcam as if to warn any offending viewers.

Pokimane speaks out on the ‘Thicc’ problem

Pokimane’s comments reference a slew of videos across the internet that feature clips from her streams, which are intended to show off her body – otherwise known as “creep clips” in some online spaces.

In fact, these compilations have become so prevalent that Pokimane herself noticed that a few news outlets even mistake her last name for ‘Thicc,’ rather than Anys.

“There is another particular term that is widely searched with my name,” Anys said of the issue during a “Google Myself” video in early February. “…the problem with this being the most-searched term is that I’ve even seen some articles that think my last name is ‘Thicc.’”

Pokimane shuts down creepy donators

Despite this problem, Pokimane has no qualms about calling out creeps during her livestreams, as seen in her response to one donator’s sleazy message regarding the dress she was wearing during a March 16 broadcast.

“Hey, can we see the back of the outfit?” Poki hit back, mocking the creepy donator. “Is there a zipper? Wait, do you have a zipper on your underwear? What if you turn a 180 and bend over? Is there any additional design in between your legs?”

That’s not all; Pokimane even received an odd “compliment” from a fan allegedly looking to buy a gift for his girlfriend during a following stream – to which she had a savage response.

“Hey Poki, my girlfriend’s birthday is coming up and I wanted to get her a pair of GymShark pants like yours,” the fan wrote. “She has a big butt like you and I was wondering if they feel suffocating or if they are actually comfortable to wear.”

“…I can’t tell if you’re memeing, just so you can say that about my butt,” she replied, rolling her eyes.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
