Pokimane on celebrities promoting NFTs

Poki went into detail about how “cringe” celebs who promote NFTs can be for her.

“Nothing makes me cringe more than seeing celebrities/influencers promote NFTs knowing damn well they have no clue what they’re talking about,” she tweeted.

Although she stopped short of naming names, there have been many influencers and public personalities that have promoted them since they became popular in 2021.

In response to YouTuber David Choi, Poki clarified her position: “I’m only talking about people that promote these things with 0 interest in tech and clearly little to no understanding of crypto, nft, or web3 in general,” she said.

“It’s just so obvious when they’re only doing it for the bag.”

While she roasted people who promote NFTs without knowledge of what they actually are, her mentions were completely flooded with users shilling their own Non-Fungible Tokens.
