Pokimane expresses intentions to be friends with every gamer-girl ever
One male Twitter user, in particular, claimed that she should not treat gamers differently based on their gender. The user was then accused of being jealous of the “gamer-girls” who might befriend Pokimane.
Here's what the user had to say in his tweet:
Quite a few users also joked about the situation, as can be seen below. Regardless, Pokimane did not appear to be overtly concerned. She also indicated that she can effortlessly make friends with other women.
Notable internet personalities Nicole “Neekolul” Sanchez and Matthew “Mizkif” Renaudo also responded to the post, as can be seen below.
Mizkif jokingly referred to a recent incident that he shared with Pokimane. He had joked about Pokimane's "real name" during a League of Legends collaboration-stream. Pokimane had later accused Mizkif of “muting” the microphone while calling her a “b***h” and went on a hilarious rant against her fellow streamer.
These were some of the responses from the gamer girls on Twitter:
A couple of male gamers also tried to make use of the situation and asked Pokimane if they could be friends with her.
For obvious reasons, the streamer might not be able to fulfill her promise, let alone be friends with every gamer-girl who replied to the tweet.
