The upcoming event has excited many fans and even streamers on Twitch who can’t wait to see the content creation group join the trend.

Amouranth slams Pokimane for stealing her idea of hot-tub streams

IndieFoxx was one of the first streamers on Twitch to get into hot-tub streaming. She assumed that it was her original idea, and she had a monopoly over this idea. Therefore, when Amouranth started streaming in the category, Indie accused her of stealing the idea.

Indie released a long statement accusing Amour of being unoriginal and copying the former at everything she did. However, the whole thing turned into a meme, with many stating that Indie also copied the idea from someone else. Therefore, when Pokimane announced that she is going to host a hot-tub stream on her birthday, Amour thought it was the perfect moment to take a jab at IndieFoxx.

Amouranth copied Indie’s statement word to word as she humorously replied to Pokimane. “Seeing another streamer copy my stream verbatim Is disturbing. It makes me sick to my stomach seeing someone stealing my creativity cuz they’re a bot with no ideas of their own.

Amour was evidently joking and is extremely excited to watch Pokimane do a hot-tub stream. However, the underlying joke in her tweet went over many fans’ heads. Therefore, she later had to issue a clarification saying she isn’t against Poki doing a hot-tub stream and the tweet was an inside joke.

Pokimane celebrates her birthday on May 14, and it would be interesting to see what OfflineTV has planned for the star Twitch streamer.
