Since launching back in January, Kick has emerged as a legitimate contender to Twitch’s streaming supremacy, using eye-popping, eight-figure deals to land streaming giants xQc and Amouranth.
Yet streamer Pokimaine, likely won’t be counted among Kick’s converts, the star slamming the controversial platform, which sparked backlash for view-botting problems and allegedly permitting racist usernames, in a recent livestream.
“Nope. and it’s not because I’ve got like $10 million,” she said after a fan questioned whether she’d make the switch for a $10 million sum.
Watching Pokimane get so salty over people getting $100 million KICK deals is hilarious— Kavos (@KavosYT) June 21, 2023
Still such an insufferable person
“It’s just because I am good as I am. Why would I compromise my morals and ethics for more money when I have money? Something about that is so cringe to me personally,” she continued.
Flexing your morals and ethics on other people around you comes from pure insecurity. Nothing else.— xQc (@xQc) June 22, 2023
Though Pokimaine expressed her support for other smaller creators who made different decisions surrounding their streaming home – “Like I understand you know, if you need to make money,” she quipped – the social media star reiterated how her morality would keep her firmly planted on the Twitch.

“For me to do cringe shit when I have money, I can’t. Like, ew,” she said, denouncing the prospects of switching as “almost embarrassing.”
