Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys was left speechless after she received an extremely rude gift during her Christmas fan mail opening stream – and now it’s revealed she got sent another.

To celebrate Christmas back in December, the female Twitch personality opened fan mail during a special broadcast for viewers, in which she received a rather rude item.

Now, a January 6 YouTube video shows that the questionable gift wasn’t the only inappropriate present the Moroccan-Canadian got – though this one was a bit less crude.

Pokimane’s inappropriate gift

In the video titled “FAN SENT ME INAPPROPRIATE COSTUME,” the 23-year-old innocently opened parcels sent in from viewers when she suddenly exclaimed “what the f**k is this?” before she held up a black shirt facing away from the camera. “I mean, what the frick is this?”

Upon turning the item of clothing around, it was revealed that the Twitch star has received a t-shirt with “stealing your views” written across the front in the shape of a pair of women’s breasts.

“True!” Poki exclaimed, before she burst out laughing. She held out a Christmas card from the recipient, and stated, “The reason I said “what the heck is this?” is because their card, it’s Twitch chat.”

(Timestamp 2:26 for mobile viewers.)

The card was of a conversation between some fans who were talking about the way some people assume female streamers pull in views for their broadcasts – by showing off their chests.

“How do you have so many followers? “Probably because of b**bs.” the personality read out. “This is actually really funny, I like this!”

The OfflineTV member finished off by revealing that she might actually wear it sometime: “I might just rock it one of these days!”

Pokimane is currently the top female personality on Twitch, and boasts over 3.7 million followers on the Amazon-owned platform at this time of writing.

She gained her popularity for League of Legends broadcasts, but now is seen as more of a variety streamer due to her venture into other content.

Who is Granny? The rising Twitch star who streams as a grandma

Twitch is home to some pretty outlandish personalities, but none may be as unique as the rising streamer known only as Granny.

Dressed in a bright white wig, oversized glasses, and attire that you could have sworn you’ve seen the elderly wear, Granny takes the character to the extreme.

If you thought the outfit or persona was the limit of the character, think again. Just like how Dr Disrespect streams from his legendary “arena,” Granny has her own broadcast center of sorts.

From Granny’s house to Twitch

Her streams begin, amusingly enough, with an old house in a green meadow surrounded by rainbows, flowers and chirping birds.

After introducing herself, talking to viewers from inside the big pink home that looks like it’s ripped from either Lord of the Rings or Teletubbies, the gameplay kicks off.

What makes Granny’s choice of games so hilarious is that she’s made a habit of streaming titles such as Dead by Daylight, which are the complete opposite of the happy-go-lucky nature of the intro.

Fans are absolutely loving it. Since starting the stream, Granny has amassed nearly 30,000 followers and is growing on other platforms such as YouTube.

Climbing the Twitch ranks

Speaking with Dexerto, the entertainer refused to break character, further, cementing the concept that this was a grandma streaming on the Amazon-owned platform.

Granny claims it all began when she was working for a finance firm in New York City for three years and was beginning to feel worn out.

“Right around that time, Red Dead Redemption 2 came out and I found a huge comfort being immersed in that world while I took time to recover and figure out my next steps,” the streamer explained.

“When Red Dead Online was released I started to make friends on the proximity voice chat and they told me I should try my hand at streaming. In February 2019 I moved to New Zealand to go all-in on starting a Twitch channel, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision.”

That said, she does have plans to return to New York at some point in 2021, so fans should be sure to be on the lookout for that.

While the climb up the Twitch ranks has been a journey since it first began in January of 2019, the streamer does have a few favorite moments.

“A couple of exciting milestones along the way have been Trixie Mattel and TPAIN discovering the stream,” she happily noted. “They love joining in now and again to help repair the ice cream machines in Dead By Daylight.”

Going into 2021, Granny is definitely going to be one of the streamers to watch out for, especially if she continues to get noticed by some larger members of the community.
