Following a series of tweets posted by streamers "JiDion" Adams and Imane "Pokimane" Anys, it seems that the controversy surrounding the two has finally come to an end.

JiDion, who has been indefinitely suspended on Twitch following his hate-raid on Pokimane, tweeted an apology to the Moroccan-Canadian streamer, whilst taking accountability for his actions.

The hate-raid has been a major topic within the Twitch community, with personalities such as Ninja also being dragged into the controversy. The sexist harassment faced by Pokimane following the hate-raid triggered a social media movement which brought streamers together to show their support for her.

While the feud between the creators seems to have finally reached its conclusion, the fans remain somewhat hostile towards each other. The topic may continue to be prominent due to its ties to the harassment faced by popular female streamers on the platform.
