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.
