Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys played a game during her March 28 broadcast where she rated fellow female streamers on the platform. The Moroccan-Canadian gave her take on personalities from Neekolul to Jessica Nigri.

A Korean rating game from the site ‘Piku’ has been making the rounds on Twitch, and various streamers have been re-playing the latest version for their viewers.

The streamer was talking to her chat when a donation linked her to the latest version of the Piku rating site. The Korean-based game puts two photos of Twitch personalities side by side, and asks you to click on which one you like more.

She was eventually faced with a choice between Maya Higa and Neekolul – who recently became a breakout sensation with her viral “oki doki boomer” dance on TikTok. “I know Maya and she is such a freakin sweetie” Poki said upon seeing her friend.

“When you see two girls you can say “yeah this one’s hotter,” but when you know more about them it takes them to wife level. And Maya is wife level. She does so much to help animals. She’s funny as hell!” she said, before picking Maya while roasting her boyfriend, Mizkif. “I’ll never pass up an opportunity to c**k Mizkif.”

The star had a lot of positive things to say about legendary cosplayer Jessica Nigri, and praised her prolific career. “Honestly, Jessica is a freaking catch. She’s been working hard for years. She has really cool hobbies. She makes her own cosplays. She does it all. She’s a powerhouse.”

While she wasn’t familiar with streamer zookdook, she exclaimed, “but if I knew her better, she is fine as hell. This aesthetic…” before pausing and giving a chef’s kiss motion with her hands.

The Twitch star also commented on streamers such as Amouranth and BrookeAB. On the 100Thieves star, she stated, “Have you seen her relationship with Symfuhny? She’s a ride or die bish. She’s funny, very wholesome and chill. I like Brooke!”

While she didn’t end up commenting on Neekolul, the breakout star herself recently addressed viewers comparing her to Pokimane. “I’m the complete opposite of Poki. I’m literally anti-Poki,” she said.

The Morocco Canadian continues to be the most popular female on Twitch with over 4.1 million followers of the time of writing, so her compliments will surely be an honor for anyone working hard on the platform.

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.
