Twitch streamer Imane “Pokimane” was spotted permanently banning fellow streamer Mohamad “m0E_tv”. This comes after the latter made a sardonic comment in chat while she and Hasan “HasanAbi” were discussing the downsides of gambling addiction.
In the last few days, many streamers have voiced their opinion against slots/gambling streams. The latest outcry came after Twitch streamer ItsSliker admitted to swindling thousands of dollars from its fans due to gambling losses.
Pokimane, who compared the differences between gambling and other types of addiction, banned m0E_tv after the latter chimed in by saying there were no differences. After the ban she said:
“I kinda had to.”
What did Pokimane say about gambling addiction?
Aside from a discussion with HasanAbi, Pokimane shared her thoughts with fellow streamer Matthew “Mizkif”. The duo came together on a Twitch stream to promote the suspension of slots streams and also tweeted their thoughts. Both Matthew and Imane said:
In Imane’s last stream, where she discussed the issue with Hasan, she said:
“P*rn addiction or binge eating, I don’t feel like those are comparable to gambling addiction.”
While the Turkish-American streamer was responding to Pokimane’s statement, he spotted m0E_tv, a gambling streamer, making a sarcastic response in the chat. He was commented:
Imane, who gave a sneer at the comment, didn’t waste too much time before banning it. Hasan also recognized that the Moroccan-Canadian streamer had quickly suspended Mohammed. He said:
“Did you just ban Mo?”
To which an animated Imane replied:
“Oh my god, did you see that? I can’t, like I can’t, I really can’t. I don’t want to say anything mean, so I kind of had to!”
She also said she shared a few streams with him, but didn’t condone his “recent take” on gambling.
