Imane "Pokimane" Anys is one of the most popular streamers in the world who has amassed millions of followers across various social media platforms.
The 24-year-old Twitch star is one of the most renowned faces in the streaming industry and commands a stellar global fan base who continue to go gaga over her 'kawaii' persona and interactive streams.
Despite her immense popularity, Pokimane has endured her fair share of controversies and continues to invoke the ire of a section of the community who dislike her perceived lack of wholesome content and her borderline toxic fan base. Her fans are known to often go overboard in their displays of affection for the Moroccan-born star, on account of which they are commonly referred to as 'simps'.
Keeping this in mind, Pokimane recently took to Twitter to reveal that she had tried out a few dating apps in the past and was unceremoniously kicked off the platforms due to allegations of catfishing.
In today's world, catfishing has been on the rise as the practice usually involves people faking their identities to lure a gullible victim into a romance scam of sorts.
Pokimane's tweet soon began to trend online, and many of her 'simp' fans came forward like knights in shining armor as they extended support and even put themselves up for dating.
