Pokimane is one of the biggest Twitch streamers on the planet. She has amassed a massive fan following, thanks to her fun, energetic, and crazy streams.
However, the new year 2022 hasn’t been the most friendly to her so far. Pokimane was recently streaming Valorant with her fellow streamers when a rush of comments started appearing in her chat. These were all comments that were spamming the chat with L + RATIO” comments because another streamer by the name of Jidion had instructed them to raid Poki’s stream. Essentially, it was a hate raid directed towards Pokimane.
Jidion ended up getting banned on Twitch. He also accepted his mistake of directing viewers to talk ill in Poki’s stream. However, the criticism and hatred towards Pokimane has still not stopped.
However, the two were then seen together by the fans and now Pokimane has revealed why she actually collaborated with him even after all the hate drama that took place.
“He really had no benefit going out of his way to tell them to stop bothering me,” she explained. “So when I saw that he did that, and those people did remove their comments and stuff, I reached out to him on Twitter.”
“We kind of just got to a point where we understood things from each other’s perspectives,” she added. “He apologized profusely about the things that happened.”
In the past when Pokimane was flooded with hate raid, fellow streamer and friend of Pokimane, Mizkif came out to support her and voiced his stand on Twitter. Here is what he said:
“Sad how Pokimane still has to deal with misogyny and harassment in 2022. And it’s even more sad how I have to say this publicly because people are afraid to stand up and say she’s being treated poorly because they’ll be called a ‘simp.’”
Pokimane has also tweeted about the hate raid and said “It baffles me when other streamers don’t stand up against blatant harassment or misogyny…”
