Hate Raid meets Pokimane and horrifies their peers

Imane “Pokimane” Anys is one of the biggest streamers on Twitch. She now prematurely ended a stream in Valorant because she was hit by a “hate raid” that a YouTuber sent her. Your colleagues on Twitch are shocked and show solidarity. Twitch imposes a 14-day ban on the perpetrator of the raid.

This was the hate raid: Streamer Pokimane played some games of Valorant with fellow streamers like Valkyrae. However, after about 70 minutes, strange things started happening in their chat. In the Twitch chat, a few people suddenly appeared and wrote “L + Ratio”:

  • “L” stands for “Loss” – someone has lost.
  • “Ratio” is intended to express a counter-action.
  • So the “L + Ratio” meant something like a loud boo. People also said “JiDion” sent them or sent greetings to him.
  • Twitch bans one of its most important streamers ever

    That was her reaction: While her friends were still discussing the situation in Valorant loudly in the background, Pokimane was visibly affected by what was happening in her chat. After a moment’s thought, she ended her stream visibly touched and told her fans: she had to deal with this “bullshit”, but her fans didn’t.

    YouTuber apparently has a big problem with Pokimane

    Who is this JDion? “JDion” is a YouTuber with almost 3.5 million subscribers, who is known, among other things, for his soft spot for basketball star “DeMarcus Cousins”. He created a Twitch account in February 2021, which now has 300,000 followers. Apparently, JiDion asked his own followers on Twitch to go to Pokimane’s channel and show that “L + Ratio” there. JiDion apparently has a big problem with Pokimane. On his Twitter channel, he says, for example, that he can’t stand the woman. For example, he’s repeatedly shared old clips of Pokimane saying a racist swear word beginning with “N” (via twitter), or shared a screenshot of her allegedly making gang signs. He said on Twitter: He respects women as such, but whether someone is “disrespecting a penis or a vagina,” you have a right to stand up for yourself. Because in the end everyone is the same.

    What is a hate raid? Sending viewers into someone else’s channel is known as a “raid” and is actually a positive thing, you want to support someone else. But if you send the viewers there to cause trouble, it is frowned upon as a “hate raid”. In the past, streamers have protested against such hate raids, which hit members of marginalized groups, and demanded that Twitch better protect the victims of such raids.

    Here’s how Twitch reacts: They put a 14-day ban on JiDion. Recommended editorial content Here you will find external content from Twitter that complements the article.

    Twitch streamers show solidarity: “Clearly misogynistic”

    How other streamers are reacting: Many big Twitch streamers are shocked by the action. For example, Disguised Toast says: When he messes up, people say “he’s an idiot”, when Pokimane makes the same mistake, she gets the worst abuse, called “fat, ugly and lazy”. That was clearly sexist and filled with hatred. One of the things that annoyed Mizkif was that people were afraid to stand up for protection in front of Pokimane because it would mean they were Simps. It’s sad that Pokimane is still dealing with misogyny and harassment in 2022. Recommended editorial content Here you will find external content from Twitter that complements the article.

Twitch streamer Kaceytron said women would get in 100 times more trouble if they did something wrong and would be held up to them for years. Myth says: “Kids’ brains on the web think I want to sleep with Pokimane because I spoke out against blatant misogyny. How was your day?” Suggested Editorial Content Here you will find external content from Twitter that complements the article.

    Pokimane, the only woman at the top of Twitch

    This is behind it: For years, Pokimane has been the only woman at the helm of Twitch among a multitude of men. In this exposed position, she was repeatedly publicly attacked and reduced to her appearance. She is also constantly accused of having a secret relationship with any other top streamer on Twitch (preferably Myth). Pokimane wants to separate her private life from the stream as much as possible – that apparently drives people crazy. A constant topic on Twitch is who Pokimane’s “secret friend” is. Some seem downright obsessed with Pokimane’s relationship status. A drama about content creator “Fedmyster” also played into the narrative: he left the content creator group “Offline TV” after a controversy. He is said to have sexually harassed women in the organization. But the people who publicly attacked Pokimane say: It’s not about her being a woman, it’s about her character. She would allegedly take advantage of “naive men” and the like. Those who support Pokimane are actually only doing so in hopes of somehow getting their attention. However, many of her peers believe that her gender alone is enough to turn some content creators against her. In May 2020, a conflict over Pokimane has already escalated: the biggest streamer on Twitch is said to be exploiting lonely men for money
