As the most popular female Twitch streamer on the platform, Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys has hundreds of thousands of loyal fans, but she mocked one fan who took their loyalty a bit too far.

On June 3, Pokimane switched from her normal stream games of League of Legends and Fortnite Battle Royale, to try the notoriously rage-inducing ‘Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy’.

The platformer game challenges players to climb up the levels using a hammer, and if the player falls they get reset, as happened to Pokimane, sending viewers into hysterics as she smashed her desk in rage.

Pokimane / Twitch‘Getting Over it with Bennett Foddy’ is infamously difficult, as Pokimane discovered.

The clip was widely shared on social media, and fans laughed at Pokimane’s expense, but she took it her stride, explaining she was just “acting mad” for the sake of entertainment.

On her next stream, Anys revealed that a fan had messaged her on Twitter, and tried to give her support for the “bullying” she was receiving over the clip.

“Somebody legitimately thought that I felt like I was getting bullied,” Pokimane explains, “and they DM’d me, and were like ‘I’m so sorry about what everyone’s saying, I want you to know that I’m with you.”

The fan also apparently tried to warn the streamer about an upcoming jump scare in the game, and told her to “be careful.”

“He was a little white knight,” Pokimane joked. “I was like ‘no, no, I just act mad, I’m not actually mad’ but his heart was in a good place.”

Her channel has over 3 million followers, the most of any female streamer on Twitch and top 10 overall, and so there are bound to be some fans who support her through anything, even if it’s not really needed.

Female streamers, in particular, are often said to have these “white knight” fans, who feel they owe their favorite streamer some protection from the ‘bullies’ of social media.

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.

Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.

“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.

“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.

“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
