Pokimane had to temporarily leave her stream for a few minutes after reviewing one particularly crude unban request, but it’s just one of many the Twitch streamer sifts through regularly.

Twitch now allows streamers to review their unban requests from users who their moderators have banned from chat, and streamers have found it often makes for entertaining content.

That’s because the type of people who end up getting themselves banned from a Twitch chat are not always the most straightforward individuals, and there’s no shortage of wacky ban reasons and excuses.

Pokimane hits out at sexist comments
Twitch: pokimane
Pokimane was the most-watched female streamer on Twitch in 2020.

The standard is something along the lines of ‘my little brother did it’ or ‘I was hacked’, which usually results in a swift denial from the streamer. But, Pokimane has come across some truly bizarre ones during her stream on February 2.

As she read an unban request from user atlis123, their initial messages were a bit spammy, repeatedly saying ‘simp’ – but the bannable message truly took Pokimane by surprise.

“How am I supposed to get hard when your facecam is an animation” the message read. Pokimane has been doing some streams using her VTuber avatar, which displays a digital version of herself.

Stunned, Pokimane jumped out her seat and remained off-camera for a couple of minutes as she gathered herself.

Returning, she was then even more confused by the message the user had left in hopes of getting unbanned, simply writing “I do.”

“Unban request is just ‘I do’…” In response, Poki wrote ‘didn’t ask to marry’ and denied the request. “Why is the responsibility on me, to give you a hard on? It’s hard for me to even say that sentence. Like why is that the responsibility of my stream?”

Pokimane was also playing an unban request bingo game at the same time, chalking off all the predictable responses such as “I was drunk” or “it was a dare.”

Streamers are of course under no obligation to even review these requests, but because it makes for entertaining content, many have realized they can make the most of their toxic viewers.

Pokimane remained the most-watched female streamer on Twitch in 2020, so there’s no shortage of strange people in her chat on a daily basis.


KSI starts hilarious “beef” with Minecraft star TommyInnit

YouTube star-turned-boxer KSI has struck up yet another humorous “feud” with the uber-popular Minecraft influencer TommyInnit — leading to a completely hilarious and unexpected response from the gamer.

When it comes to fandom feuds, most bystanders know better than to get involved… but when content creators themselves declare war against each other, it’s almost impossible for viewers to not take an interest.

This time around, British rapper and influencer KSI has taken some shots at TommyInnit — all for the jokes, of course. While the two have “duked it out” on social media before (all for the lulz), this time, a slew of other high-profile names are getting involved in a chuckle-worthy social media showdown.

On February 24, KSI stirred the pot with a tweet that caught the attention of Minecraft fans all over the app: “Sidemen fanbase > Minecraft fanbase.”

A short while later, the commotion caught the attention of none other than MrBeast, who replied: “Anyone else waiting with popcorn for TommyInnit to reply?”

It wasn’t long before the British Minecraft star chimed in on the situation with a series of responses that left the internet in stitches.

“Mr Beast,” he began “I don’t do drama Mr Beast. I just tell people who are wrong why they’re wrong, and why they’re f***ing stupid. KSI is almost always wrong. He’s never been right. He just sits there dissing people in his ivory tower, meanwhile I’m sat here on Reddit studying algorithm. F*** him.”

However, it was Tommy’s next response that took the joke even further, with the YouTuber poking fun at his own viewers: “Tommy fanbase is a bunch of 12 year old girls who fangirl over him. Same for Carl and Dream, and Sidemen fanbase who can handle jokes.”

The Minecrafter then jokingly asked his fans to ratio KSI’s Tweet — a request that fellow Minecraft personality Quackity graciously agreed to, writing: “I just think it’s funny when old people get less likes. Signal boosted.”

While this is far from the first time KSI has effectively “stirred the pot” with the Minecraft fandom, their “feud” is no more than playful banter and humorous jokes — which are currently giving their respective fanbases a hilarious interaction that has some calling for a diss track.
