In one of her streams on December 7, she was asked whether or not she thinks that girls should ‘cook and clean’. To this, Pokimane laughed and replied “All women belong in the kitchen!”

While Pokimane’s intentions were not evil behind the statement, the audience was triggered. In all her following streams, the chat was flooded with questions about the ‘women belong in the kitchen’ joke.

“I mean, like, a few reasons, I guess,” she said after a fan asked if she believed the claim, jokingly doubling down. “For starters, I really like food, so I’m in the kitchen a lot. Secondly, I don’t make the rules, I just repeat them sometimes.

“I feel like the worst thing is having to explain a joke,” continued Pokimane. “Really, guys, don’t worry guys. God, I’m not sexist. On God, for real, not sexist by the way. I bet you a buck fifty that I’m not, I swear.”
