Pokimane shares disgusting messages from fans following Roe v. Wade court ruling
After expressing her opinion on the Supreme Court of the United States overturning Roe v. Wade, streamer Pokimane shared disgusting messages she received in response to her stance.
On June 25, SCOTUS overturned Roe v. Wade removing the Federal government’s protection of abortion laws. This means that each of the 50 United States has the right to ban abortions, with several states already doing so.
Several Twitch streamers took to Twitter to express their opinions on the ruling. Pokimane, one of the largest streamers on Twitch, was vehemently against Roe v. Wade being overturned.
The Canadian streamer currently resides in California and stated she had booked a ticket to return to her home country following the “depressing” news. Later that evening, she would share disgusting messages sent to her by someone wanting to impregnate her.
Pokimane disgusted by graphic messages
Pokimane posted a screenshot of text messages she received to her second Twitter account Imane. She obscured the name of the sender but left the contents of the messages legible.
The messages read “You’re so hot on Twitch. Ready to impregnate you Poki. Now that abortions have been removed be careful because I will knock on your door.”
A YouTuber by the of NintendoFanGirl commented in support of Poki and later shared her own horrifying encounter with the same messager. She stated, “Not even 20 minutes after commenting on this, the same lose is in my inbox…”
She shared a screenshot of the messages sent to her. The anonymous messager degraded her appearance, insulted her intelligence, and described explicit actions they perform.
NintendoFanGirl revealed the messages were from an email, and she hid them to protect innocent people involved. “In cases like this they often end up being either stolen or filled with someone else’s info leading to doxxing an innocent person,” she stated.
Pokimane hasn’t made any other comments regarding the situation, but we will be sure to update this story is any more information becomes available.
