Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is no stranger to odd fan requests – but one demand in particular has caused her to publish a humorous PSA, following the release of another internet personality’s “unique” merchandise.

Controversial Instagram star Belle Delphine announced on July 1 that she was actually selling her bath water, which was packaged in a series of small jars that may or may not have included her own drool, as evidenced by an Instagram video promoting the product.

While the “Gamer Girl Bath Water” quickly sold out online (whether by fanboy demand or by internet trolls merely doing it for the lolz, we’ll never know), other popular female stars have also been approached by fans to orchestrate similar campaigns – including Pokimane.

Pokimane spoke out on the demand for her bath water in a good-humored Tweet on July 6, asking that fans stop badgering her to release her own line of bath water.

“Please stop asking for my bath water,” Pokimane wrote. “I take showers.”

Although fans were equal parts disappointed and humored by her statement, Pokimane may have turned down a decent profit: Delphine priced her bath water at $30.00 a pop, which has already sold out as of July 5, with some users speculating that she could have made over $44,000 with a standard 70 gallon bath.

Delphine’s bath water fiasco follows her adult site-related prank the month prior, where she created a “fake” account on the site after teasing her fans with the possibility in her Instagram posts.

Belle Delphine’s account on the site wasn’t actually explicit – instead, she pulled a hilarious prank on her thirsty fanboys.

Although Delphine’s latest business venture has proven relatively successful, other internet stars are not as enthused about the consequences of her product – with Pokimane being one of them.

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.
