In the viral clip, InvaderVie exploded on a viewer who insulted her with a derogatory term, stating, “Every single member of your family who ever existed to bring you, the absolute lowest form of scum on the planet, into existence… All of them are ashamed of you!”

During the middle of a broadcast, Pokimane reacted to the clip for her audience, and shared her thoughts on the incident. “Is it f**ked up that I feel that someone out there probably really enjoyed hearing that?” she said.

She then continued, and wondered if the viewer that had harassed her would even care about the response. “And the guy that made the comment, does not give a s**t. You know what I mean?” she said, breaking down laughing.

The popular streamer’s chat erupted into laughter at her thoughts on the situation, before she exclaimed, “Sorry I don’t know if my brain is just rotten for it to go there!”

InvaderVie has not made any further comments on the exchange, although she spent time during her broadcast educating her viewers on why “thot” is an offensive word that doesn’t “track” with the way the term is used.

Despite her interesting take on the clip, Pokimane’s large following means it will get more views, putting a spotlight on InvaderVie’s take down of her harasser.

Pokimane continues to be the most popular female channel on Twitch, and as of the time of this article, she boasts a following over 3.7 million on the streaming platform.

The streamer is also a media juggernaut with millions of viewers across her YouTube, Instagram, and Twitter accounts, and even released a successful clothing line in 2019.

Dolan Twins announce they’re “moving on” from YouTube career after six years

The Dolan Twins have been a longtime presence on YouTube, with both influencers amassing an impressive 10 million subscribers on their shared account — but after all this time, they’re calling it quits.

The Dolan Twins — made up of fraternal twins Ethan and Grayson Dolan — have garnered quite a fanbase over their six and a half years on YouTube.

Generally hailed as a positive presence on the platform, the Twins became known for being part of the “sister squad” with fellow YouTubers James Charles and Emma Chamberlain before the group split apart nearly two years ago.

Despite their large following and successful career as influencers, the Twins announced in a January 14 episode of their podcast series, ‘Deeper with the Dolan Twins,’ that they are permanently quitting YouTube.

“We are not moving on from YouTube because we have a lack of appreciation for you guys,” they clarified. “Your support over the past six …years of our lives has been… I can’t even explain the level of appreciation we have for you. Really.”

It seems that the brothers have not been feeling the usual passion for their work, expressing that they hope to move on to more challenging prospects that fuel their creative fire.

“This is life, and I do think that all good things come to an end at some point or another, and this is that point,” they added. “…We want to move on to bigger and better things that are gonna be more of a challenge for us.”

“With YouTube, it was our main goal to spread positivity. But a lot of people were recognizing that I wasn’t the same positive ‘light’ that I was in the videos, previously. My heart wasn’t in it anymore.”

Although they’re quitting their regular uploads, it seems the Twins won’t completely wipe their presence off YouTube; the duo claimed they will continue to work on their podcast, which they will post to the platform on a weekly basis.

Thus far, it doesn’t seem like their fanbase is too surprised by this development, with many viewers sounding off in the comments that they’d seen this coming for quite some time.

We can only wish the Twins luck in their future endeavors as they — and a slew of other high-profile creators — seek to start a new path in life.
