Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has commented on “weird” content creators who apparently make bold speculations about her love life to their viewers.

Pokimane is among the most popular streamers on Twitch, the number one female streamer, having ammassed a huge audience of over 4 million followers on her channel.


Perhaps unsurprisingly, many viewers are often curious about her relationship status, however, she has explained that she is not keen to reveal aspects of her private life.

Pokimane shut down streamers speculating about her private life.

The Twitch star has previously expressed concerns around those who make their relationship public, expressing that she would not like to go through breakups similar to other ‘internet couples.’


Her silence on the subject has led to speculation from viewers and even some of her fellow streamers, such as Riley, who she poked fun at in her March 21 broadcast.

After being sent a clip of Riley suggesting that Pokimane had been “probably been dating someone for the last 6 years,” the Twitch star fired back.


“Do you know how weird it is for me to imagine that random people are just talking about sh*t like this,” Pokimane said.

“Also, if I’ve been dating someone for 6 years we better be married by now, what the hell?” she jokingly added, expressing that she would not be able to keep a marriage secret.

When viewers asked her to confront her fellow streamer, Pokimane responded that it was not worth it. “There is nothing to confront – it’s just weird, you know you run out of content when you’re tryna steal my simps,” Pokimane joked, before bursting into laughter.


Although Anys was being lighthearted in her response, it’s likely she has noticed other streamers also commenting on matters in her private life, and is clearly not a fan of all the speculation.

Despite streaming almost daily to her massive audience, it’s important for Pokimane, and all popular streamers, to maintain a level of privacy.


Hashinshin claims FBI cleared him of sexual harassment allegations

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.
