In a discussion comparing micro-transactions in mobile games to gambling, a reference to an extreme message posted by xQc to his Discord.

You’re comparing something that can be arguably bad, to something that’s really f**king bad. Why are people trying so hard to make gambling seem less worse by comparing it to other things. We can still all agree that this is really f**king bad, right?

Pulling no punches with her words, Imane laid the blame for the proliferation of gambling streams directly at the feet of the streamers that profit from it.

I’m for taking money from the rich and giving to the people, but you’re rich, and you’re gonna make millions off your viewers cause that’s how it works. Your viewers lose money.

Pokimane finished her diatribe on the topic saying: “Just because other things that are less bad are legal, that means we should allow worse things? That’s such terrible logic for a society.”
