Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys found herself having to respond to a donator who decided to plug 39daph’s channel with a ‘simp’ donation following their recent drama.

Back on November 17, 39Daph revealed direct messages between herself and Pokimane after she had unfollowed the hugely popular streamer on Twitter – with Poki seemingly ‘confronting’ her about it. 

The reveal sparked drama between the two broadcasters on social media, as Poki herself had to hold back tears as she dove into the dramatic situations that she had been caught up in. While streamers like xQc and Mizkif chimed in with their own unique takes, the drama had seemingly simmered out. Yet, one Twitch user decided to bring it back up. 

Pokimane / TwitchPokimane found herself in the middle of Twitch drama after 39Daph showed off their messages.

During her November 30 stream, the popular streamer had been reminiscing on her final day in the classic OfflineTV house before they were preparing to move. As she watched a video of a room tour she gave, she received a small donation.

“Subscribe to 39Daph, 39Daph is God, 29Daph is love, 39Daph is life,” it read, before Poki cut in and took a jab at the donator as her chat filled up with laughter spam. “Imagine simping in someone else’s donations, oh.”

As the donation messaged was finished being spoken by the Text to Speech voice, the streamer added a few final words. “Omegalol. Dude, like, cool but if you like someone that much just simp in their donos,” before throwing up an ok sign with her hands.

Now, with Twitch users having their favorite broadcasters, they can usually be tribal about things, but Poki’s chat just laughed at the streamer and her reaction instead of starting up a reactionary spam.

As of writing, neither her or 39Daph have addressed their situation any further, so it’s been solely on fans carrying the beef. Whether or not it’ll die down completely and everyone will move on, though, remains to be seen.

Doja Cat is leaving TikTok: “I’m not comfortable”

Popular music artist Doja Cat has announced that she is officially leaving TikTok, claiming that she is no longer “comfortable” with being harassed on the viral video application — and she’s not the first celebrity do so.

Doja Cat has become one of the world’s most popular rappers in the last few years. Best known for such hits as ‘Juicy’ and ‘Like That,’ Doja humorously found herself in the spotlight thanks to her viral ‘Moo’ video in 2018, and has been steadily climbing the stairway to fame ever since.

However, it seems that Doja is taking a major step back from one of the net’s biggest social media platforms, as revealed in a series of soul-baring Tweets published on January 19.

In her tweets, Doja claimed that she no longer wants to post on TikTok, appearing to claim that she’s tired of being harassed and bullied by critics.

“I’m not comfortable making TikToks anymore,” she wrote. “I feel like something is wrong with me. Y’all got me.”

Doja continued by claiming that commenters were “unintentionally gaslighting her,” revealing that she has “struggled” with similar issues before.

“I have a lot of fear in me, so it just adds up in the end when I read that kind of shit,” she explained.

“It’s really my dumbass fault, cuz I put myself out there to be made fun of anyway, but it’s just reached a point for me, personally,” the rapper added. “So I’m done with the funny shit. Y’all can make fun of my music and my performances, cuz those not meant to be a joke and I’ll feel better about that.”

Doja is far from the first celebrity to leave TikTok over similar issues; in September 2020, rapper Taio Cruz also quit the platform, claiming that he’d been bullied to the point of having harmful thoughts, which were brought on by mean commenters.

Studies claim that cyberbullying has drastically risen since the onset of the global health crisis — and while Doja has been met with ample support from her fans, we can all do our part to make the internet a nicer place.
