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.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
