Twitch partner Knut Spildrejorde has slammed a “fucking dumb” Instagram promotion deal that he was offered through his Instagram messages.

Promotion deals, whether it be for things like clothing, drinks, food, and gaming equipment, are a way of life for entertainers on Twitch, Instagram, and social media. Stars often add these deals onto their Twitch revenue, to bolster their overall income.

It was no surprise, then, that streaming bodybuilder Knut had fashion brand ‘Animal Eye London’ slide into his DMs with what they believed was a decent offer regarding sponsorship. The Twitch star had a different idea, however, slamming the offer.

Animal Eye London offered Knut a 30% discount on all their clothing brands, a 15% discount code for his followers, €10 per follower that actually purchase something from their catalog, and an offer of putting his images on their account if they were “potentially good enough.”

Knut shared the message with his viewers during his September 22 stream, laughing at the offer, before he fired back his response: “Are you fucking dumb?”

“So fucking dumb,” he laughed, before firing off another message to the fashion brand. “If you pay me $1,000USD a month I will wear your ugly ass clothing.”

As Knut laughed, however, he realized that he couldn’t remember how to spell the word ‘clothing’, first typing out ‘chlothing’ in the message before asking his chat for help. “How the fuck do you write that? Can someone spell it for me? I’m a Pepega!”

Part of the confusion on the part of Animal Eye London seemed to be the company had only looked at the Twitch star’s Instagram followers. He has just over 7,000 followers on the photo-based website, and the fashion brand may have believed he was just getting started.

Instead, Knut just uses his social media account to post behind-the-scenes images of his day to day life, and uses Twitch as his main platform to engage with fans. There he has more than 86,000 followers, and is partnered on Twitch.

Knut, TwitchKnut’s popularity on Twitch has been growing with his regular Just Chatting streams.

Animal Eye London, who has nearly 150,000 followers on Instagram, likely didn’t lock down Knut’s signature on an exclusive branding deal considering his reaction to their offer.

Perhaps the bodybuilder will have a few more offers soon, however, after he revealed how marketable he is during a skit making fun of Just Chatting streamers and their many poses.


Pokimane releases her own Fedmyster document to “put drama to rest”

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys has conclusively responded to recent leaks about OfflineTV drama from Federico ‘Fedmyster’ Gaytan. In her own extensive document, the popular streamer shares her side of the story with texts and other sources.

The drama surrounding Fedmyster and the OTV house bubbled, then simmered, then boiled back up with a thorough document which was leaked, then shared by Fedmyster to give his side of the story. 

Fed, who has been accused of numerous improprieties, used texts and messages to provide evidence of his perspective and show some humanity. In the end, he tried to clarify for the public that the matter was resolved: “We both made mistakes and have owned up to them privately. I hope everyone reading will try to move on from all this as we certainly have already.”

But Poki immediately appeared perturbed by the leaked document, which included flirtatious messages between them as a means of demonstrating that Fed had been led on. In a brief Twitch stream, she noted Fed’s “manipulative” behavior and discomfort with private messages being leaked publicly.

Now, she’s gone a step further and shared her own doc to share her side of things and hopefully shut down any more need for gossip.

Pokimane and Fedmyster’s relationship is a long, complicated one.

In an 11-page document, including pictures of messages between herself and Fedmyster, as well as with other people, Poki clarifies context and attempts to remove biases that she felt Fed had pushed.

While understandably uncomfortable with private conversations being leaked, the streamer indicates that she is compelled to share her side because of Fed’s document: “Looking back, I would’ve done a lot of things differently, and know for a fact that neither of us handled the situation perfectly. However, our private convos heavily lacked context, and I’m not okay with how they’re being misrepresented.”

In one such example of giving context, she explains how one of the more egregiously received examples of flirting was actually misconstrued to suggest that she wanted to be alone with Fed in a hotel room.

A screenshot of Poki’s doc shows how Fed’s leaks lacked context.

Unwilling to be abdicated of responsibility for the complicated relationship, Poki asserts that she regrets many of her messages and actions.

Similarly, she contends that Fed’s “feelings are valid and a good reminder to me that what one person thinks may be going on in a friendship, don’t always match up with the other person’s expectations.”

The document tackles every issue brought up in Fed’s document, including the two’s relationship as well as drama with Yvonne, OTV, and Jodi.

But, ultimately, these are private matters and the additional context simply proves that Fed’s account may have misled in that it failed to account for other perspectives.

Poki’s hopes are that this new context will finally help “put drama to rest.”
