Top Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane‘ Anys has recounted how she was approached in the street by a stranger proposing to have a “sugar daddy and a sugar baby relationship”.

As the number one female streamer on the platform, Pokimane is no stranger to getting plenty of attention while out and about, especially at the various conventions streamers attend, such as TwitchCon.

However, when simply out and about in her local neighborhood, Anys explains that she was approached at random by an unknown man, who made her an inappropriate offer.

After first tweeting about the incident back on September 24, Pokimane finally explained the story while on the Misfits podcast, revealing how it all went down.

She explains that living in a “Beverly Hills neighborhood” which is very safe and family-friendly, she had never expected such an encounter, while simply out on a coffee run.

“I start walking to my house, and he runs up behind me, and tapped me on the shoulder (…) I literally screamed a bit,” Pokimane retells it. Apparently, the man simply asked about street parking in the area first, before suggesting that this area was known for ‘sugar daddy relationships’.

Pokimane, clearly taken aback by the suggestion, simply replied: “I’m not an expert on that topic,” but the man pressed on, asking “is it a relationship that always has to be sexual?”

Stunned, the streamer simply went along with the questions and responded unwittingly, as the man explained that he wouldn’t “use a website for this sort of thing”.

“I was really just trying to dip from the conversation, and he was really trying to keep the conversation going,” Anys explained.

As for any interest in such an arrangement, Pokimane said she wouldn’t consider it as “Twitch income is pretty decent, I won’t lie.”

Certainly, for someone as popular as her on both Twitch and YouTube, with over 3 million followers on each platform, it can result in some very healthy monetary gain, not only through subscriptions and donations, but also sponsored streams.

She remains the biggest female streamer on the Amazon-owned website, and by a large margin too, with second-placed Amouranth over 2 million followers behind.

Millie Bobby Brown deleted her TikTok account without an explanation, and although her fans can understand why, they’ve been left wondering what the reason might be.

Millie Bobby Brown exploded in popularity after all the success of Stranger Things in the past few years. However, fans have been drawn to her bright and bubbly personality too, and she’s developed a big presence on social media

Millie Bobby Brown has almost 40 million followers on Instagram. It was always her biggest platform. However, her TikTok was incredibly popular too. It featured all kinds of content, including clips of her singing, dancing, and recreating viral trends like a normal teenager.

Strangely, she has now deleted her TikTok, and nobody knows why. It came as a huge surprise of her millions of followers, and many are left wondering if and when she’ll return to the video-sharing platform.

Millie Bobby Brown doesn’t owe anyone an explanation. Still, that hasn’t stopped her fans from speculating about some of the reasons why she might have disabled her account, which had around 16.2 million followers, and 158.4 million clip likes.

They’ve suggested everything from avoiding toxicity and needing space to more specific issues like being bombarded with homophobic memes.

It’s impossible to know for sure, but whatever her reason might be, it’s certainly understandable. For all we know, she might have watched The Social Dilemma and decided to cut back on screen time.

It’s not the first time Brown has deleted a social media account either. She deleted her Twitter account all the way back in 2018 due to a series of “disgusting” memes, and she may very well have done the same this time around too.

There are many reasons why Millie Bobby Brown might have deleted her TikTok. But in the end, it doesn’t change the fact that she has deleted it, and it’s a decision that her fans may need to support.

Of course, her TikTok videos will be sorely missed. They always managed to brighten people’s days.

Still, it’s important to remember there’s an actual person behind the spotlight. She can do whatever she wants with her accounts, without explaining it to anyone.
