Pokimane Slams Viewer Following Comments About Hafu

Published

Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys wasn’t playing around when it came to the conduct of a viewer in one of her recent twitch streams, going as far as to ban them from her channel over their comments during the live stream.

Following the Activision-Blizzard lawsuit and with the disturbing new interview with Sweet Anita highlighting the conduct and constant sexual harassment that female streamers and content creators have to put up with in the industry, Pokimane brought up the recent tweets in response to former professional Hearthstone player Rumay ‘Hafu’ Wang, who claimed that Blizzard let let a WoW compete under a name that targeted her back in 2008.

One particular viewer was in chat and received a ban, only to donate moments later and threaten to unsubscribe from Pokimane’s channel if she did not lift the ban. Pokimane took aim at the viewer after discovering some of his disturbing comments in her chat.

“You are exactly the kind of person we don’t want in my community or in the greater gaming community at all,” Pokimane said, during the live stream on July 29th (h/t Dexerto). “It is not just a joke to call someone who’s underage hot and justify the fact that people are saying they were going to sexually assault them. Also, it’s not okay to, instead of apologizing for your shi**y comments, to try to flip it and call me or my mods boring for ‘not getting the joke.’ You are so oblivious to your own problems, it’s painful.”

“You think I give a f**k about your $2 sub? You think that’s going to make me think that what you’re saying is ok?” she continued. “I hope you get banned off this whole platform my guy.”

It’s yet another disturbing example of how the industry and culture is for a number of women streamers, gamers, pro players and content creators, a trend that needs to stop but seems to be continuously excused by big brands and companies.

Pokimane Says Shane Dawson’s Apology “Disingenuous”

Published

Twitch superstar and OfflineTV streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys isn’t buying the apology issued by Shane Dawson, who claims he was “cancelled” after he received backlash over controversial comments from his past resurfaced online back in 2020.

Dawson took a hiatus that lasted all the way until his return on October 7th.

Still, Pokimane issued her criticism of Dawson’s apology, calling it “disingenuous“.

“Like, if you really care about something, like, ‘hey I want to come back” she said during a recent live stream (h/t Dexerto). I want to seriously apologize and I want people to know how aware I am of the sh**ty things that I did’… When someone’s serious they look like they feel bad, they say at lengths what they did wrong. That’s how you really do it.”

“Whereas if someone is like, “Sorry you feel that way. If you hate me you’re gonna hate me, and omg my cat’s so cute!” If someone apologized like that, you would be like, ‘What?!’… It just wouldn’t feel right,” she said.

“The way he summarized it, I felt kind of sucked, where he was like “All these clips came out, and that was bad. And if I talk about how I really feel about it, then people will say I just want sympathy.” … But then it’s like, maybe you haven’t thought about what you did long enough.”

“All the things he listed, none of them were like, “I felt bad about what I’ve done. And like I wanted to give people time and space.” People need time to get over, and you need to showcase you’ve changed,” she continued.

“If you’re going to go off the internet for like two years, specifically because of you being canceled. When you come back and it’s your first video back, I think you need to acknowledge what you did. And in acknowledging what you’ve done wrong, you need to say that you’re sorry, to showcase that you’re genuinely sorry.”

“You need to go about things the way you genuinely feel. If you feel you are sorry, say you’re sorry. But you also have to accept that if you choose not to apologize and some people think that makes you disingenuous then so be it. But the vibes that I get is that he’s unsure.”
