Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left stunned when a viewer informed her that a fellow streamer had taken one of her selfies and performed a bizarre act with it, and was even more shocked when she watched the clip.

Pokimane is the top female personality on the Amazon-owned streaming platform with over 3.87 million followers. While most encounters with viewers are positive, sometimes some people can just be downright weird – something that she, and other broadcasters, have experienced many times.

The latest bizarre interaction actually rendered the 23-year-old speechless because of how odd it was, and served as a stark reminder that while the internet is a wonderful place, there’s always something out there to catch you off guard.

Streamer’s weird reaction to Pokimane’s photo

During her January 30 broadcast, a viewer informed Pokimane of a clip that was going around of a fellow streamer using her photo for an odd yet gross performance.

“It’s not TOS I would think, it’s a guy kissing your butt as a pic,” the Bits donation read, alongside a direct link to the questionable clip.

Upon hearing the automation voice read out the message, the Moroccan-Canadian pulled a weirded out facial expression as she hesitantly clicked on the video and paused her music to see what all the fuss was about.

“Hang on, boys! Hang on!” Australian streamer Empirrre exclaimed as he pulled up a full-length Twitter selfie of the Twitch star and moved his camera overlay right next to her backside. “Let me just flip my camera around!”

Once he’d positioned himself in the “right” place, the 26-year-old proceeded to lean in and “kiss” her bottom. “How do I do it?!” he asked his chat as he continued the bizarre performance.

In response, the OfflineTV member shook her head and then hilariously moved her camera overlay to the left of the streamer’s and stretched her arm out so that he was “kissing” her hand instead.

Pokimane was able to see the funny side, as she broke out into laughter shortly after – though she still had a look of utter confusion and bewilderment etched across her face.

What struck the Australian to perform such a weird act is unknown, but it didn’t stay on her mind for long, as she immediately went straight back to what she was doing before she saw the clip.

A Pokemon Trading Card Game livestream ended in disaster after it was quickly discovered that the booster packs were fake. The YouTube channel spent over $375k on the 1st Edition base set box, only for it to be resealed. 

Despite making its debut in 1999, the Pokemon TCG has exploded in popularity over the past two years. The hobby hit an all-time high in October when influencer Logan Paul opened a base set booster box he paid $216k for while livestreaming.

However, things didn’t work out as well for another YouTube channel who paid $375k for the same item. The livestream unboxing of the rare collectible quickly turned tragic when it was discovered that the TCG item was actually fake.

Rare Pokemon TCG box opening ends in complete disaster

The event was hosted by YouTube channel ‘Dumb Money Live’ and included popular Pokemon content creators such as Lee ‘Leonhart’ Seinfeld. The rare 1st Edition base set booster box was bought for a record-breaking $375 through Logan Paul’s collectible trader ‘Collectables Guru.’

“The owner of the box supposedly bought three boxes when he was a child. They sat in the gun safe the entire time,” the Pokemon dealer explained. However, they quickly realized something was amiss after breaking the seal. Several booster packs were different colors, and some weren’t even 1st Edition.

“Oh no. That is a major f**king deal!” Guru exclaimed. The personality opening the box then revealed the problem: “It’s not even base set cards, these are Jungles! Wow. This is a resealed box. It’s random!”

(Topic starts at 35:41)

Upset, Collectable Guru called up the seller and explained that the box was resealed. “We opened the box literally live and they’re resealed packs. There is like base set 2 mixed in, half of them are 1st Edition. But they are all resealed, this is absolutely unacceptable. How is this going to be taken care of immediately?”

Stunned by the whole thing, Leonhart stood by and said, “Oh my gosh, I was not expecting that.” Guru came back and updated the group and explained that the seller had two other boxes that they were going to open first before bringing them back to the YouTubers.

The YouTubers were floored after the rare Pokemon box was fake.

To add salt to the wound, the box opening was done on stream for charity. Dumb Money Live gave an update and addressed the situation a day later stating: “I don’t know a single person in my network that hasn’t been defrauded as an investor. You have to give sellers a benefit to make this right.”

At the time of writing, the situation has not been entirely rectified. The channel will open a booster pack on October 30 live to verify that the second box is actually real. However, it appears that if this one is fake as well, the seller claims they will refund the content creators their $375k.
