She has accepted that there are "simps" and started to joke about it. This has helped her cope with this strange culture derived from the internet.
She has reiterated to her fans to not treat her like some object or trophy. She has limited her donation cap so that no one is put into a bad financial situation because of their interest in her. She has also warned viewers who are attempting to impress her with money or random comments.
It is likely that Pokimane will never be completely done with simps, but she's handling the bizarre situation quite well.
