Popular Twitch streamer Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys, who is also one of the most successful female streamers in the industry, isn’t a fan of the new gambling meta that has led to a number of twitch streamers landing sponsorship deals with gambling companies.
During a live Twitch stream on May 19th, Pokimane accused streamer of taking money while compromising their viewership.
“You’re comparing something that can be arguably bad, to something that’s really f**king bad.,” Pokimane said (h/t Dexerto). “Why are people trying so hard to make gambling seem less worse by comparing it to other things. We can still all agree that this is really f**king bad, right?”’
Pokimane would continue to slam the sponsorship streams.
“I’m for taking money from the rich and giving to the people, but you’re rich, and you’re gonna make millions off your viewers.” she said. “Cause that’s how it works. Your viewers lose money.”
