HASAN RIPS INTO TWITCH VIEWER ACCUSING POKIMANE OF BLACKFACE OVER NATURAL HAIR

WHAT HAPPENED?

On November 9, 2021, Twitch star Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys began her stream by unveiling her natural curls to her 8 million followers.

Hasan was watching Pokimane’s stream when he read a comment from his chat aloud: “Why is Poki blackfacing?”

Are you f**king insane? That’s her natural hair, dude. What the f**k? Guys, she’s literally Moroccan. Are you f**king stupid? She’s literally from Africa, bro!

“That doesn’t mean she’s Black, but that is her natural f**king hair, you pyscho!” he continued. “What a psychotic f**king take, dude!”

Pokimane has since responded to the accusation during a December 8 broadcast.

My mom’s hair is not like mine and because we immigrated to Canada, and we grew up there, and I had no other family around me, my mom didn’t know how to teach me to do my curly hair, which isn’t her fault.

Despite the commenter’s sentiment, Pokimane received an outpouring of love after showing off her natural curls to the world.
