Pokimane jokes about why she can't twerk at E3 parties

Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys likes to have fun but she revealed that she can’t party the way she’d like to at an E3 party with a hilarious explanation.

E3 2019 is in full swing and while the conferences are over, the party has just begun as the show floor is open to attendees to try out many of the game shown off during the presentations.

While this is an exciting time of year for video game fans, it’s also a time of year where content creators can get together with one another, which is where E3 parties come in.

UbisoftJust Dance 2020 was announced at E3 for those who just want to dance.

Business or pleasure?

Pokimane explained how she’d like to go to a party but doesn’t feel like E3 is the right setting for her. 

“Sometimes it just feels like these parties are more so work than they are play for me and I don’t really like that,” she explained. “Like you just can’t twerk at an E3 party, it’s unprofessional or something, I don’t know, that’s what my manager says so I guess I have to listen. But then why would I go?”

Going to a conference like this can be exhausting and sometimes you just want to unwind after a long day, but she feels like that just isn’t an option for E3.

While it’s clear that’s she’s making a joke, E3 does tend to be more professional as there are numerous brands that go to the conference and chances are you’ll run into a couple of your sponsors.

During Dr Disrespects first IRL stream, which ended in a ban, he had a long chat with members from the G FUEL team, one of his sponsors. 

The Doc never got around to doing any twerking during his stream, but he did go into a bathroom several times, which Twitch clearly didn’t appreciate.
