Pokimane poked some fun at Trevor ‘TmarTn’ Martin with her reaction video to ‘copystrike’ allegations from PewDiePie, but TmarTn didn’t let it go unnoticed. 

Martin is often mocked for an ‘apology’ video he released in July 2016, after it was revealed that he was the owner of CS:GO Lotto and hadn’t disclosed his interests in the business, despite promoting it on his channel. 

However, after noticing that Pokimane had parodied the opening of his video –  including a short clip of it and then mocking it by using her cat in place of TmarTn’s dog – the gaming YouTube questioned her on Twitter.

TmarTn didn’t leave it at that, either. As other users backed up Pokimane, he explained why her use of the clip had angered him.

“I had nothing to do with this” he tweeted, after being asked how Pokimane was using this to deflect away from allegations against her. “I’ve never met nor spoken to the girl before. Yet, she’s using a mistake I made years ago to lighten the mood/make a joke/deflect when she should be making an apology.”

While TmarTn started by questioning the parody section of video, the debate surrounding his initial apology video, and the controversy which caused it, was soon reignited on his Twitter feed.

In a series of tweets, TmarTn goes into great detail about the events which now occurred over 2 years ago.

In further tweets, he explains that nothing he did at the time was ‘illegal’, and had it been, there would have been punishment. He also claims that the “sentiment” that he defrauded children is also false, as only over 18’s could use the site.

Then, while Martin admitted that there were things that he should have definitely done differently, he argues that there were a lot of allegations made against him presented as fact, and that FTC had cleared both him and Syndicate. 

He also suggests that H3H3’s video, which was largely responsible for exposing TmarTn and Syndicate’s wrongdoing, was ‘one-sided’ and that Ethan Klein of H3H3 was not in possession of all the facts.

Pokimane has recently been accused of wrongly ‘copystriking’ other YouTubers for including her name or content in their videos and an ongoing feud between her and PewDiePie began when fellow YouTuber Alinity suggested that she would do the same to PewDiePie because he used the term ‘thot’.

PewDiePie reacted by posting a video to his YouTube channel, which has over 80 million subscribers at the time of writing, called: ‘STOP DOING THIS’. He mentioned Pokimane and the allegations against her, but did sympathize with her situation.

After receiving a huge $2,500 donation, Twitch streamer HAchubby celebrated in a rather unexpected manner that made for an amazing Twitch highlight.

If you’re a fan of Twitch and you tune into the platform regularly then you’ll know that watching streamers receive huge donations is always entertaining. Audiences love watching them so much, there’s even a sub-genre of videos on YouTube that are dedicated to donating huge amounts of money to streamers to see their reactions.

It’s no surprise these videos get millions of views as it’s always great content to see a Twitch streamer having their day made by a big donation. Of course, it’s difficult to predict how someone will act after being donated a large amount of money.

In HAchubby’s case, it involved celebrating by running around her store with a basket on her head.

HAchubby celebrates huge Twitch donation

During her January 19 stream, HAchubby received a huge $2,500 Twitch donation from one of her viewers. Of course, she was extremely grateful for the donation and expressed how thankful she was: “Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god thank you so much.”

At first, it appeared as if she was going to carry on with the stream, but then she suddenly burst into a celebratory dance. Her Twitch chat erupted with messages and her viewers were clearly happy to see how thankful she was for the donation.

It was at that point she grabbed a basket from the store that she owns and began running about the aisle with it on her head. The highlight made for a hilarious Twitch clip and it was obvious how much the donation meant to her.

There’s no denying it’s not your typical reaction to a donation, but it’ll certainly be a memorable highlight for any of her viewers watching live. On top of this, you can guarantee it’ll be added to the range of streamer donation clips featured in various compilation videos.

We’ll have to keep our eye for any more big donations that HAchubby receives to see how she reacts the second time around.
