Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys ran into yet another toxic player after searching the random duos playlist on Fortnite during one of her Twitch streams.

Imane is the leading female twitch streamer with almost three million followers on her channel and she is often seen as a role model for many women in gaming.

She has had massive success on League of Legends, as her viewership numbers spiked during the early months of the game’s release.

Poki often finds herself playing games with an auto-filled player in the duo’s game mode and although many of her viewers enjoy the random element of her queuing up with anyone, it can also come with its downsides.

Pokimane has had issues in the past with this game mode as she has no control over what the people on her team can say in front of her audience, and this clip is prime example.

During the early stages of the match with Imane, the teammate randomly stated that they wished the earth was flat and when Pokimane inquired, the player suddenly blurted out a racist slur, for seemingly no other reason than to get a reaction from the streamer.

As seen in the clip, Pokimane was immediately shocked by what the player said, while only being able to respond by saying “what”, before she muted the duo from saying anything further in front of her audience.


Pokimane’s issues in the past with this game mode has included young players being extremely crude, to others who have let things slip unaware that their voice was being broadcasted to such a large audience.

This probably won’t be the last time that the auto-filled duos game mode will have some controversial moments on Twitch as it seems to be a favorite among Fortnite streamers for entertaining their audiences.
