POKIMANE APOLOGIZES FOR “WOMEN IN THE KITCHEN” JOKE AFTER TWITCH BACKLASH

WHAT HAPPENED?

The Moroccan-Canadian’s apparently controversial take ⁠- which she made clear was an attempted joke at the time ⁠- happened on December 7.

She was asked if girls should still “cook and clean” in relationships. She laughed: “All women belong in the kitchen!”

⁠After days of comments in her Twitch chat, the 25-year-old decided to address the “kitchen” joke ⁠— a response she was shocked she ever had to make.

It was a f**king joke dudes, I feel like the worst thing is having to explain a joke. Really, guys, don’t worry guys. God, I’m not sexist. On God, for real, not sexist by the way. I bet you a buck fifty that I’m not, I swear.

Me supporting other female streamers and always talking about gendered issues, oh no, that’s the front. My one kitchen joke, for sure means I’m sexist.

The Moroccan-Canadian star also came under fire this month for telling “well-off” streamers they should uninstall Blizzard games and stop playing.
