Popular content creator and jokester THump finally got his own back on streamer Alinity after she kicked off the new year by giving him a fresh start on Twitter and unblocking him.

Alinity may be a pretty popular streamer who can attract thousands of fans whenever she goes live, but she has quite a fractured relationship with a large portion of the streaming community.

Be it because of the alleged animal abuse or the copyright strike drama, content creators have lined up to take shots at her on a pretty regular basis. While the majority of these may stay on stream and live solely on Twitch or YouTuber, others do stretch into Twitter where she has the ability to block them. However, after unblocking THump, he quickly turned the tables on her in hilarious fashion.

Twitch: AlinityAlinity still has plenty of followers but not many streamers are big fans.

To mark the start of the new year, THump noted that he had finally been unblocked by Alinity on Twitter and could start tweeting at her again. “Nah bro, nobody can top this 2020 gift,” he tweeted, noting that he was no longer blocked by the streamer.

After Alinity replied with a happy new year message, THump quickly asked for a follow – claiming he would “do anything” to have his wish come true. It didn’t take Alinity long to come through and hand him a follow.

However, he just used it as a chance to get his own back – handing the female streamer a swift block before taking a victory lap and showing off the hilarious exchange.

Of course, many of his followers found his mini revenge moment as completely hilarious, making jokes about how Alinity would strike back by finding a way to get him banned from Twitch.

That seems pretty unlikely, though, especially considering it’s all just a jokey moment from a well-renowned prankster who has just got his own back in pretty funny fashion.

Pokimane has been accused of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist after a mod tried to blame her for discriminating against a trans girl, but she apologized and maintained her innocence.

Iman ‘Pokimane’ Anys is normally in the spotlight for the right reasons. However, she’s been caught up in drama lately after leaked documents about her relationship with Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan surfaced.

Pokimane denied the allegations, and it looked like smooth sailing from here on out. But now, another incident has surfaced. It’s a serious one that has thrown her into drama yet again.

Pokimane has been caught up in one drama after another lately.

Pokimane’s official Discord server has a role exclusive to girls, but users can’t get it unless they confirm their gender by speaking in voice chat. It’s supposed to be a failsafe way to stop male viewers from pretending to be females for trolling purposes.

However, a mod rejected a trans girl from the role. He claimed he was following orders and deflected the blame onto Pokimane. Apparently, the trans girl persisted, which ultimately lead to being banned from the server.

This sparked an uproar on social media. Some people even accused Pokimane of being a trans-exclusionary radical feminist (TERF). Fortunately, she responded quickly and assured fans that everybody is welcome in her community.

“I’m looking into this with said mod/proof of the conversation that was held between them,” she said. [I] will [also] contact SHSLChris directly to resolve this and to assure she is welcomed properly.”

“Anyone in my community should be welcomed with open arms no matter what gender/sexuality,” she added. “I’m so sorry if anyone was made to feel otherwise, especially by a mod. That is not okay, and I’ll make sure it’s properly handled.”

“Furthermore, I’ve unmodded the person in question,” she said, implying that he acted independently.

“Again, I’m so sorry for this interaction, as it is not something I reinforce/a rule of mine, and is far from representative of my personal opinions, as I truly support the trans community.”

The key takeaway is the mod appears to have acted or interpreted the rules in his own way, and has since been unmodded.

Pokimane also maintained her innocence and claimed she is in full support of the trans community. Whether the affected user will accept her invite back into the Discord remains to be seen.
