UPDATE 7-28: Pokimane has responded to PayMoneyWubby’s divisive clip with a humorous clapback: During her own stream, the star stood up to salute Wubby as the video of his comments played, mockingly calling his statements “so brave” as patriotic music sounded off in the background.

It seems that Poki isn’t bothered by his remarks, and is even finding some humor in the awkward situation that has since arisen after his clip went viral across social media.

Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys somehow ruffled a few online feathers with a recent tweet celebrating her viewer count, prompting fellow streamer Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel to suggest that anyone getting upset over it should find some other way to spend their time.

If you’ve been on Twitch in any capacity in recent years, you’ll probably know who Pokimane is. Boasting the largest subscriber count of any female streamer on the platform, she’s easily considered one of the site’s biggest stars.

As Twitch streamers often do, Pokimane celebrated reaching over 10,000 viewers with a pure gameplay stream with no face cam on July 25. She also threw in a cheeky dig at her haters, which didn’t go over too well in certain online circles.

Shortly after Poki’s tweet made the rounds online, variety streamer Dennis ‘PayMoneyWubby’ Richardson took some shots at her, implying she had no idea what she was talking about.

“Did you guys see that Pokimane tweet where she was like ‘No cam, no audio, just Valorant, 10K viewers, and I’m only famous because I’m a girl?’ She said something like that,” Wubby laughed. “Like, OK r***rd.”

Even though Wubby has a larger platform than most to share his feelings on the matter, it’s obvious that a number of people agreed with him. However, there has been some pushback toward his comment as well, notably from Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel.

“Guys, I agree that it wasn’t like, the best tweet, it came off as a little bit weird. I saw it, I didn’t think anything of it,” xQc explained while examining the outrage surrounding Pokimane’s post. “It’s fine, I think sometimes you express being proud of something you do in different ways.”

“She did that, she’s proud of her gameplay and how much people appreciate it,” xQc continued, before throwing in a dig at Wubby. “Maybe this guy should try that every once in a while, some gameplay. Maybe wouldn’t have to f***ing rely on media share for content.”

xQc is definitely no stranger to the drama the streaming community has to offer; recently, he got into a spat with none other than Jessica Blevins, who’s husband is Tyler ‘Ninja’ Blevins –  even though the two have since buried the hatchet, so to speak.

If anything, this whole situation just proves that no matter how big and successful you get on Twitch or social media, not everyone will be on your side. But looking at the massive numbers Pokimane continues to pull in shows she probably doesn’t need to worry about the haters all that much.

However, some of these on-stream occurrences are downright strange, and many streamers have received the odd occasional gift from their viewers, including that time when Pokimane received a body pillow with a photo of herself on it.

While streamers having a public P.O. Box to receive gifts from fans is not uncommon, very often the things they receive are; and Twitch streamer TheStockGuy became the subject of a seriously weird present of sorts.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
