Pokimane is one of the most popular female streamers on the planet. She has amassed a massive fan following, thanks to her binge-worthy streams and phenomenal gaming skills.
However, the new year 2022 hasn’t been treating Pokimane the best. She was forced to end her Twitch stream after facing a hate raid that was directed towards her by another streamer Jidion.
Nine Years Ago
And now, people are targeting Pokimane and requesting Twitch to ban her from the platform after an old video of her has surfaced in which she is seen using a racial slur (the N-word).
Asmongold, fellow streamer of Pokimane has responded to the ongoing hatred towards Pokimane. He slammed everyone who is trying to get Pokimane banned from Twitch.
“When did Pokimane see a black person and call them the n-word? Like, when did that happen? Nine years ago?” said Asmon. “I said the n-word back then all the time. I think a lot of your favorite content creators did.”
What Did Asmongold Say?
“I’m not saying it’s good or bad. I’m just saying that this is what it was. This JiDion guy, what was he doing eight or nine years ago? If you have a window into everybody’s life, I think you’re going to find a number of really bad things.”
“There are a few exceptions to this. But if you’re talking about something that happened over five years ago – especially with somebody who is a young adult – I think it’s kind of unfair to criticize them.”
“It has nothing to do with them being upset about what she said. It has everything to do with them just simply not liking her and working backward to rationalize why it’s okay not to like her.”
