POKIMANE CRITICIZES “UNHEATHY” TWITCH SUBATHONS AFTER SYKKUNO’S VIRAL TAKE

WHAT HAPPENED?

Pokimane levied some criticisms toward subathons while reacting to fellow broadcaster Sykkuno’s take on influencers who abuse the practice.

“I’m always a little iffy about subathons for a myriad of reasons — some, including what he’s saying,” she began.

Tactics that some people could consider a little unethical, where you’re kind of pretending you’re streaming but really you’re sleeping and doing other things and just pretending to do a subathon, in a sense.

“But the other reason is, there’s no way subathons are healthy for a human being to do,” she continued.

The fact we are incentivizing it with hundreds of thousands of dollars, major clout, followers, attention — we’re like, ‘Oh my god this person has been streaming for three weeks! Poggers!’ No, they need to go see a doctor.

While subathons can definitely wear streamers down, they certainly have their highlights.
