Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to awkward interactions online – but one fan’s question left her shaking her head.

Pokimane was in the midst of a broadcast on April 4 when a fan sent in a donation, asking the streamer what kind of leggings they should buy for their girlfriend – which quickly turned into an awkward compliment.

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

While she didn’t directly address the comment at first, her face said it all, transforming into an incredulous expression as she stifled a laugh before answering the fan’s question.

“Also, I can’t tell if you’re memeing, just so you can say that about my butt,” she said of the message, rolling her eyes.

Pokimane, TwitterPokimane has had a slew of uncomfortable interactions online, including a twelve-year-old fan flirting with her during a game of Fortnite in August 2018.

Pokimane hits back at sleazy donators

This is far from Pokimane’s most awkward online encounter by far; in fact, the streamer lashed out at creepy donators after receiving a sleazy message during a March 16 broadcast, imitating the message with extreme shade.

“Hey, can we see the back of the outfit?” Poki mocked. “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?”

Pokimane has also been the subject of unwanted advances by young fans, most notably after a young Fortnite player made lewd comments about the streamer during a game in August 2018.

Although Anys shot back at the player’s behavior, he continued to make rude and suggestive comments; however, the player later went on to publish an apology video on the matter, claiming that his comments were meant as a joke.

Even Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins weighed in on the matter, speculating that the internet’s anonymity allows children to engage in “disgusting” behavior toward women.

“For some reason, kids just think that they can be the most disgusting people in the world,” Ninja said of the issue. “It’s the anonymity. There’s no punishment.”

Pokimane is one of the most popular streamers on Twitch, boasting nearly three million followers on the platform.

NickEh30’s latest Fortnite tournament was quite a spectacle, but it was tainted by an alleged stream sniper, who was reported and subsequently banned despite maintaining his innocence.

Nick ‘NickEh30’ Amyoony has been hosting a series of Fortnite tournaments in recent months. The latest one was the NickEh30 Cup. It gave players a chance to compete against some of the game’s biggest names in the scene for a chance to win $10,000.  

It was all positive for the most part. A lesser-known professional Fortnite player named  Crumble managed to impress and take home the prize. However, the tournament was marred with some unfortunate stream sniping drama.

NickEh30 Fortnite stream sniping ban

In the final match, several other players landed on NickEh30, including a Twitch streamer named ArchieFN. He eliminated NickEh30 and danced on his body for the better part of 30 seconds.

NickEh30 was less than impressed and looked disappointed and deflated on stream. It was a stark contrast to his usual upbeat and positive vibe. He was convinced ArchieFN was stream sniping and hopped into the replay mode to report him and a few others.

Fortunately, Epic Games responded almost instantly and banned ArchieFN for 24 hours as soon as he returned to the lobby. You can watch a full recap of the incident below and form your own opinion.

However, ArchieFN is maintaining his innocence. He claimed he wasn’t stream sniping at all. Instead, he said he wanted to “contest someone who wasn’t a tier-one pro” and decided to land on NickEh30 after seeing him land in the same spot during a previous game.

Still, he apologized for what he did and acknowledged that some might find it “scummy.” Sadly, that didn’t stop him from copping a bit of abuse, some of which was needless and extreme.

“Why am I waking up to 600 DMs telling me to kill myself?” he said. “I’m 20, and it doesn’t bother me at all, but the majority of the community is quite younger … you really need to think about what you’re saying to people on the internet.”

In the end, ArchieFN’s Fortnite ban won’t last more than a day. It isn’t too long to wait if he’s innocent, but it’s enough for a wake-up call if he’s guilty.

Either way, The NickEh30 was a success despite the stream sniping drama, and a rightful victor was still crowned.
