Twitch streaming star and internet personality Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has reacted to the current buzz around the #pokimanesboyfriend hashtag on Twitter — and her response is nothing less than pure gold.

While the subject of Pokimane’s love life has always been a subject of interest for fans (with many pairing her with other streamers like Hasan), things kicked up a notch after YouTuber ‘LeafyisHere’ published a video criticizing her content — as well as claiming she has been hiding her boyfriend from fans.

“If you ever happen to come across one of her big time fans on your way to the grocery store or whatnot …be sure to remind them that she has a boyfriend, because I think that they would really love to hear that little piece of information,” Leafy said.

Soon after, the hashtag #pokimaneboyfriend began trending across Twitter, with many fans speculating as to who the mysterious man could be — if there even was one.

However, Pokimane herself joined in on the shenanigans in a post of her own — and it’s safe to say that she’s not taking the issue all too seriously.

In response to the hubbub surrounding her romantic life, the streamer uploaded a photo of herself standing next to a cardboard cutout of former U.S. president Barack Obama.

“It’s time to come clean,” she captioned the hilarious pic, clearly unbothered by the rampant outrage and rumors concerning her private affairs.

Pokimane herself has been quite open about how she would treat her love life if she did get into a serious relationship, claiming that she wouldn’t put her romance online.

“I don’t know if I would like, really want to put my relationship out there one I get into one,” she stated in a June 2019 Q & A video. “For example, I’m sure you’ve seen a lot of couples out there who make their relationship public. …when they break up, they have to make that public, too. I don’t know if I wanna go through that, know what I’m saying?”

No matter the case, it doesn’t look like this streamer is going to break under critics’ watchful gaze — and she’s certainly not going to peep about her private life to strangers online.

FaZe Clan have announced that they are running an invitational Among Us tournament — smartly dubbed the “Among Us In-vent-ational” — in October, with top content creators, streamers and more getting in on the action.

Among Us has become the game of choice for many top creators, with a party-game atmosphere and a great way to find out who your real friends are and test your own poker face.

The announcement for the tournament was made on October 14, with the esports organization confirming it will take place on Monday, October 19.

FaZe Clan are capitalizing on the growing popularity of Among Us.

The tournament takes place entirely on Monday, October 19, with the action kicking off at 2pm PT (11am ET / 7pm BST), and will likely play through the entire evening, especially as it appears to only be a one-day event.

It’s not clear yet how exactly they will schedule matches, and it will likely come down to how many players they have involved: of course, the more players, the more they’ll have to fill out the schedule.

Streams

Though no specific streams have been announced so far, there will likely be loads to watch. On top of all of the individual participants themselves, who will want to stream off of their own channels, there will probably be one or two official broadcasts to catch the action on.

One of these will probably be the GoBoom TV Twitch channel as they are involved with organizing the event, just like they do with the Code Red tournaments. FaZe’s own Twitch channel may also broadcast the games, which we’ve embedded here so you can easily tune in.

Who is playing?

FaZe haven’t confirmed any names yet for who will officially be competing, instead asking fans to tag who they want to see playing.
