Pokimane blasts Corrina Kopf for accusing her of promoting crypto gambling websites
Pokimane, who took active charge during the mass campaign of streamers going against Twitch for banning gambling, expressed her elation that the efforts have finally paid off as the platform is going to place ban on such streams from October 18th.
This came after a huge feud between streamers who had varied opinions on whether Twitch should ban gambling or not. On the flip side, Corinna Kopf, known by her online moniker ‘Pouty Girl’, posted a screenshot of Pokimane sitting in her streaming room. She claimed that Imane was promoting gambling during this stream.
The streamer took to Twitch for hosting a livestream session and addressing the accusation made by Corinna Kopf. As Corrina had asked her to delete the stream as it shows her promoting gambling, Imane hit back at her sarcastically-
"Wow! Thank you for the amazing suggestion. Now that you've lost your job of promoting illegal crypto gambling websites, would you like to join my YouTube editing team? Is that what you're asking for."
Pokimane made a serious allegation on her claiming that she might have lost her job of promoting crypto gambling websites as Twitch is going to place a ban on such streams. She further explained that in the old clip, she had actually opened a friend’s livestream.
"It was my friend doing that and I was surprised. I was like Oh what are they doing."
Responding to this statement, Corinna Kopf took to Twitter again to talk about the accusation made against her. She claimed that she had a lot to say, but could not since Twitch might ban her if she speaks further. This was a jab at Pokimane’s popularity on the Amazon-owned streaming platform, and the entire controversy that took place with JiDion back in January this year.
