Superstar Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys received some bizarre gifts from fans for her birthday, and she was quite taken aback when opening them on stream.

In celebration of her 23rd birthday, Pokimane held a special stream on May 14, in which she appeared with her cosplay of Daenerys Targaryen from Game of Thrones.

Being the popular content creator that she is, many of her fans sent her gifts for her birthday, some of which she ended up opening on stream for her thousands of viewers to see.

It came a surprise to pretty much no one when a few of the gifts ended up being quite weird, and Poki didn’t really know what to say when she first opened them.

The first really awkward gift was a ‘Fart Filter,’ a personal flatulence plug that essentially mitigates the odor for those who may have difficulty with out of control farting. 

The second gift was a stun gun, which may not have been as weird as the first, until Poki ended up listening to her viewers and testing the object.

A click of the button released a large and loud electric shock that was powerful enough to be visible on the device itself, and she ended up shrieking and sitting there stunned for a few seconds, as ironic as that may seem.

Pokimane reaches major milestone on Twitch

While Pokimane likely received dozens of wonderful gifts for her birthday, perhaps the best gift out of all is the fact that she hit a whopping three million followers on Twitch just a few days earlier.

According to TwitchMetrics, Poki is just the 13th streamer to eclipse the three million mark, joining the likes of Ninja, Shroud, Tfue and other huge names in the Twitch community.

“I wanna say one last time, seriously, thank you guys for supporting me in any way,” she said. “I didn’t realize until I got to this point that having the freedom to pursue what I want to pursue and have such a fulfilling job where I feel like I can have a positive influence on everyone’s day, I am so lucky.”

There’s one thing that’s for sure – having over three million followers on Twitch is sure as heck a better birthday present than a Fart Filter and stun gun.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
