Pokimane Q&A Gets Right To The Point

People want to know all sorts of things about their favorite streamers. Much like with favorite actors and fictional characters, audiences enjoy learning more about the personal lives of streamers. Fans want to know what they like and, in Pokimane's case, who they like.

In her latest Q&A video, Imane "Pokimane" Anys immediately dropped the answer to one of her most asked questions: she's single. It's the first thing she says, not even a full second into the video. Other than her relationship status, she addresses personal questions like her background, aspirations, and favorite things that she doesn't typically talk about while streaming. However, some have found it amusing that the very first moment of her video answers the relationship question.

"I love how the first thing said is 'im [sic] single' LOL," fellow streamer Valkyrae commented on Twitter. Poki explained that she figured someone would ask so she wanted to get it out of the way early.

She's not wrong. As one of the most popular streamers on the web, her relationship status seems to be a constant topic of interest. Just back in March 2021, she sparked the "single btw" trend on Twitter, because she was tired of people asking about a boyfriend. Friends and supporters showed their solidarity by following suit, tweeting "single btw" without any other context.

Poki has previously received backlash for keeping her relationship status a secret. According to Kotaku, boyfriend rumors pushed her to take an extended break last summer. Fans apparently felt betrayed at the idea of the streamer "pretending" to be single to earn more money for her content. Later in 2020, she posted an apology video that addressed the concerns of her viewers — including questions regarding her supposed relationship.

"I personally want to be able to experience my relationships without the scrutiny of an online audience," she said in the video. "If you disagree, that's totally alright. You don't have to support me or my content."

While some appreciated her willingness to talk about the situation and some of her other previous issues, some were furious that she didn't even "dump" her "boyfriend." Even now, she hasn't confirmed whether or not she actually had a boyfriend, and some fans aren't convinced that she's single, even when she says she is.

At the very least, Poki says she's currently single and has been saying so for the past few months — and she wants people to know that upfront.
