Pokimane has gained nine million Twitch followers since she began broadcasting in 2013, making her one of the most popular streamers on the Amazon-owned network.
The creator has recently been embroiled in controversy about her DMCA ban, as well as partnering with Jidion after he coordinated a ‘hate raid’ against her in January.
During a recent stream, the developer said that, despite everything, she has had to deal with a few instances of her friends gossiping about her behind her back — and that her GTA RP buddies have been much friendlier.
Friends from Pokimane’s GTA RP
While chatting with her community, Pokimane revealed that her GTA RP friends have been nicer than her real-life friends and that it “blows her mind a little bit.”
“But the big reason I’m saying that is that in the last couple of weeks, there have been two or three instances where I find out that a friend of mine has been talking s**t about me behind my back,” she explained.
Poki went on to say that it’s never been a major deal because she’s rarely close enough to people to be bothered by their comments. “These aren’t individuals I’m very tight with,” she clarified, “but definitely pals I’ve known for a long time.”
Kevin’s fans should rest assured that he isn’t the problem, as she stated that he is the “nicest person ever.” She also stated that the problem isn’t with any of her more well-known friends. “I don’t think you’d be able to anticipate who it would be,” she remarked.
Poki stated on February 23 why she sought out to Jidion following his public apologies, despite the previous turmoil surrounding her ‘hate raid’ from him.
