POKIMANE RESPONDS TO LINUS’ “HURTFUL” COMMENTS ABOUT HER OVER TWITCH ISSUES

WHAT HAPPENED?

In an April 27 tweet, Pokimane suggested that Twitch should implement advertisements that don’t directly interfere with the content.

She added that she understands ads make the platform profitable but urged that adding them in the sidebar, picture in picture, or in an underlay would make the viewing experience much better.

However, while not naming her directly, LinusTechTips hit out at Pokimane in his recent podcast for her “terrible take,” and mocked her in a female voice.

Understandably, Pokimane was upset by Linus’ “hurtful” comments and hit back.

Hey, just saw a clip where you discussed my tweet on your podcast. I wanted to let you know that I felt the way you read my tweet in a mocking tone and referred to me as a ‘nameless creator’ albeit also replying to this tweet was odd and hurtful.

The tech star responded, apologizing and admitting that he was “frustrated” knowing how difficult it is to build a sustainable video platform from his first-hand experience.
