Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel reacted to Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys’ YouTube apology video and ended up defending his fellow streamer over wanting to keep personal relationships secret.

In Pokimane’s video, the star explained why she keeps her personal and streaming lives separate from each other – a decision she made when she just started out on Twitch.


“I personally made the decision seven years ago when I got into streaming that I don’t want my personal life to be part of my content,” she stated. “That’s what I’m going to stick by until I, or whoever I’m dating, at whatever time, decides otherwise.”

For his part, xQc seemed to agree with Poki, especially when she played an older clip from 2019 talking about how many people would care about her relationship status and wanting to keep it between herself and that person.

“I’ll actually agree with that,” the French Canadian said. “Okay chat, this is going to be a hot take. This is something I’ve said, not even in anybody’s defense, as a whole: if you have a super out there relationship or whatever, the problem is that no human is perfectly reasonable.”

Lengyel then gave an example of a streamer being late all the time or spending time with a partner will cause viewers to be jealous.


“People put a lot of pressure on that person and that person brings the concerns back… you let third parties create a wedge in between the people,” he added and further explained how bigger streamers learned from past incidents to keep their relationships private.

xQc also said he understands how public relationships could have an impact on viewer donations, but didn’t delve deeper into the topic.

Nonetheless, it’s pretty clear that Lengyel understands Pokimane’s position with keeping relationships away from the public and by the sounds of it, other streamers are doing the exact same thing.


Twitch streamer Jinny stunned as man tries to sell her drugs on stream

IRL Twitch streamer Jinny was left shocked after two men tried to sell her drugs while she toured the city of Hamburg in Germany.

Jinny has grown quite a following thanks in part to her IRL traveling antics where the Korean streamer routinely has odd adventures. Her trips have resulted in her befriending waitresses at a Texas Hooters, being attacked by wild deer in Denmark, and even setting her backyard on fire.


Now, in her most recent trip in Germany, the streamer found herself in quite an awkward position as she was offered drugs during an October 7 broadcast.

While talking to viewers, a random man suddenly began talking to her in broken English.


“You’re lucky to be in Deutschland. My ganja is the best,” he said. “You get three for five.”

It’s unclear exactly what units of measurement the man was selling three of for five Euros, but ganja translates to marijuana or weed. The incident really shocked the IRL streamer who had no idea what he was talking about.

“I don’t speak German,” she stated as he and another man conversed in the language.

Jinny's Twitch chat
Jinny’s chat warned her the man was selling drugs.

“Do you need ganja?” the man asked in English.

“What is ganja?” Jinny wondered. “Iguana?”

Eventually, Jinny looked at her chat and saw that her viewers were spamming translations and explaining how he was trying to sell her drugs – something she wanted no part of.


“I don’t need ganja. It’s okay,” she laughed and went on her way. “That was very random. Do I look like I smoke weed? Uh, maybe.”

Amusingly, the streamer went on to explain that she was very confused and seriously thought the man was trying to sell her an iguana.


“I thought he said ‘do you want to buy an iguana,’” she chuckled. “Why would I want to buy an iguana all of a sudden?”

Luckily, Jinny wasn’t forced into buying any drugs or reptiles during her encounter, but it just goes to show that even when a camera is rolling, weird stuff happens on a regular basis.
