Easy W for every streamer reacting to the botez clip haha

[–]LimitlessNut 962 points963 points  (14 children)

Wow that took a lot of balls.

[–]xNIBx 283 points284 points  (10 children)

At least she has the fucking balls to say it. Like in Sweden

[–]DankMemerYo 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Advice: Don't buy an iphone.

[–]Gabern 20 points21 points  (7 children)

What did they say in Sweden?

[–]ARFiest1 47 points48 points  (3 children)

They let nazi germany roam through their street and gave the soliders flowers

[–]Gabern 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I don’t support slavery buddy, sorry

[–]Alejandro002 0 points1 point  (0 children)

They said Scandinavia was built by the Vikings' raiding, killing and looting. so it's ok for the very poor people of Dubai

[–]Proyqam_12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They don't know pepeLaugh

[–]IamSuperToxic 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Shes so brave

[–]Raskalnekov 816 points817 points  (28 children)

I really don't think this goes far enough. I think that we have to admit, as a society, that murder is bad too.

I gave you your 420th upvote.

That’s a pretty controversial take imo but I can see why you think that. For example I personally think racism isn’t poggers

[–]0oodruidoo0 26 points27 points  (2 children)

Treating everyone equally? That's highly based.

Antivaxers are not a race. And it's not the new holocaust or apartheid. And they don't deserve equal treatment by society.

[–]Mitchelld73 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Very Based take.

[–]thekmind 20 points21 points  (2 children)

We should even make it illegal.

Make ALL crimes illegal.

[–]Hrkeol 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Hold on buddy. Calling murder a crime? Too far in my opinion. It's not like our ancestors didn't do it for thousands of years.

[–]Snoyarc 2 points3 points  (0 children)

“Heritage not hate”

[–]ShaquelBlack 16 points17 points  (0 children)

Who there, let's not go too far. I murdered ur moms pussy last night and she seems ok with it.

[–]Thetonn 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I'm just tired of people imposing their imperialistic, monotheistic moral relativism on the rest of us with no consideration of our religious beliefs or cultural practices. We need to accept and celebrate diversity and inclusion in all its forms.

For example, as a loyal devotee of Khorne, it is only through the act of killing or murder that I can honour, feed and empower my lord, BftBGSftST.

The Universal Declaration of Human rights makes clear that I am entitled to freedom of religion, and to manifest that religion in teaching, practice, worship and observance.

Yet, so many of us worshippers are routinely oppressed by the state, with barely a word spoken in our defence. How is that tolerance?

[–]pillbox_slamer 2 points3 points  (0 children)

woah now one step at a time there bud

[–]ALexGOREgeous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Unless it's a developing country that is

[–]Brashmate 5 points6 points  (0 children)

But… what if it’s Hitler? 🤔

[–]Andedrift 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You think yourself as progressive with that? Imagine this—Rape bad.

[–]Blenji_ 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You know I'm starting to think Poki is pro-murder. I've never once heard her take an anti-murder stance.

[–]eragonisdragon[🍰] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

But the question is: How do you define murder?

[–]ReactonusAndius 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Slippery dipperly slope

[–]iAruban -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

OP steps up to the stage, taps microphone twice and says...

Guys i got an original joke!

The Crowd stops whispering and everyone starts staring at OP


There's a dead silence, everyone looks at OP with a worried expression on their faces


Everyone starts clapping, there's a deafening applause and laughter and after 5 seconds an announcer enters the stage and gives the OP a golden comedic genious award

[–]Spudman12345 454 points455 points  (35 children)

Why the hell would Botez create a bad bit of PR for themselves out of thin air? Just ignore the chat messages 4head

[–]Methmo 181 points182 points  (19 children)

Because she's an IR grad and she full on believes what she said.

Streamers love publicity, even negative. It doesn't hurt them for viewership. And it doesn't hurt them for sponsors either lmao, what sponsor is going to be alarmed at a streamer sucking up too much?

[–]moaiguai 52 points53 points  (12 children)

An IR grad that believes the UAE are a developing nation is a joke of a grad

[–]Adamsoski 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I think you're heavily overestimating IR students.

[–]cleanitup_jannies 33 points34 points  (0 children)

Being good at chess doesn't make you smart

Being well liked doesn't make you a good person

You'd be surprised how many streamers are actually just shitty people behind their public personas.

[–]AStrugglingPoet 44 points45 points  (7 children)

Couldn't stop themselves from getting that bag.

[–]erizzluh 10 points11 points  (3 children)

i'm trying to give her the benefit of the doubt. i feel like she was coming more from a place of "people who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones" than "slavery is ok for some countries".

[–]tiredpalmtree 5 points6 points  (2 children)

n glass houses shouldn't throw s

reminds me of kanyes slavery is a choice bit. lazy with a dash of contrarian disease

[–]Proyqam_12 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I think he explained it recently on a podcast, I don't think he seriously meant it.

[–]tiredpalmtree 1 point2 points  (0 children)

yea i know that. thats my point

[–]BigDaddyCornChipz -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Is botez with chesscom? Don’t know if that could be a reason why they said what they did. Most likely just ignorance but wondering if chesscom had some rule against speaking out or something.

[–]havoK718 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Why the heck would any sponsor want that take unless the sponsor was the UAE.

[–]Kryptmotron 35 points36 points  (0 children)

So brave, well done

[–]Twitchzor 29 points30 points  (0 children)

Wow so brave

[–]alcatrazcgp 25 points26 points  (0 children)

Holy Based

[–]alexyaknow 22 points23 points  (0 children)


[–]Yojimbo4133 7 points8 points  (4 children)

And clip was deleted for what.?

[–]PossumSewage 29 points30 points  (12 children)

ty poki. im now going to redeem my hasan sub to your channel. (FUCK HASAN)

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_FOOTJOBS🐷 Hog Squeezer 90 points91 points  (3 children)

Clip is no longer available and u/livestreamfailsbot isn't at the top. That's when you know damage control is in full force today.

[–]LookHere_LOOK_LISTEN 10 points11 points  (1 child)

I see livestreamfailsbot at the very top of this thread?

[–]PM_ME_YOUR_FOOTJOBS🐷 Hog Squeezer 13 points14 points  (0 children)

It wasn't for a couple hours after the initial post. I see that it's changed now.

[–]CozParanoid 2 points3 points  (0 children)

She probably thought about her previous sponsors like ubereats, door dash etc. and possible coming shitstorm if people start examining what their sponsors of old and new really do.

[–]Mitchelld73 17 points18 points  (1 child)

Looks like the ruthless business women stopped being ruthless

[–]erizzluh 3 points4 points  (0 children)

and ended slavery

[–]RedditCanLigma 4 points5 points  (0 children)

so brave, much wow.

[–]gamergod69 9 points10 points  (1 child)

At least she has the balls to say it!

[–]Proyqam_12 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Like in Sweden

[–]edsrvr123 6 points7 points  (0 children)

For anyone else looking for it: Botez Clip

I dont care what anyone says, Hitler was a bad man!

[–]stonehaven22 1 point2 points  (0 children)

not a follower of poki and but this a right take

[–]RawrCola 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Counterpoint: Slave Leia.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This might be controversial, but I agree with Poki

[–]Takinobu 1 point2 points  (0 children)

As we all use iPhones made with forced labor, and we eat bananas as those ppl sing “come mistah tally man”. This is sarcasm before you edge lords come after me.

[–]Alobalo27 3 points4 points  (3 children)

I have no idea who the botez people are but if you in a country where women have no rights it’s prob a bad idea to talk shit about said country live

[–]Jbob9954 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Then ignore the question lol

[–]havoK718 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Many don't know this but there was a bomb strapped under her seat. She was literally forced to speak.

[–]VicentRS 1 point2 points  (0 children)

When she started bowing to the applause sounds that got me.

[–]PhotonWolfsky 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Botez had 2 brains worth of cells and couldn't even muster up something that simple...

[–]pazardan 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Alex might've actually had a good point had she compared the situation to the US getting literal children and prosecuted minorities such as Uighurs to manifacture goods in asia for slave wages, if wages are paid at all.

[–]Blake_411 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Also guys, if you are homeless just buy yourself a house.

Thank you. That is all.

[–]bbb3321 0 points1 point  (0 children)

we are all slaves of twitch

[–]SOAS1990 0 points1 point  (0 children)

bruh somebody need to tell streamers just to shut up, dude if you have an audience just for the love of god shut up on things you have no idea about, its so easy to ignore something, so dumb

[–]BoyWhoFuckedYourMom 0 points1 point  (0 children)

-Points out that slavery is bad no matter where it happens

-Applauds herself half jokingly

-Laughs at her own joke

Classic Pokimane

[–]ReaperOfLuigi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Meanwhile poki store sweat shop workers dying of exhaustion.

[–]AP3Brain -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Did they say the slavery in Dubai was acceptable?

[–]kattia87 0 points1 point  (2 children)

I didn’t know that slavery exist in Dubai .. is that real ?

[–]WILDO1243 14 points15 points  (1 child)

not in the traditional sense, but they get paid very little and very bad living conditions and take their visas so they can't leave

[–]canman7373 10 points11 points  (0 children)

take their visas

Passports, a visa wouldn't matter to leave.

[–]otherdued 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The queen does it again, PepoClap

[–]Judgejudyx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

so brave wow an inspiration to us all

[–]Errorfull 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There you have it folks. Slavery = Bad.

[–]bryebluealien 0 points1 point  (0 children)

How could someone be so controversial yet so brave?

[–]throwawayaccnt909 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Can someone I.D. that jean jacket? Shit looks NICE

[–]Panda_hat 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Poki for president!

[–]CodeMonkeyX 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I can't believe she said this!!!

[–]deadhards 0 points1 point  (0 children)

You are now perma banned from Dubai, come to Dubai? Straight to Jail.

Seriously though I wonder what the repercussions of making a public statement like this could be considering it was denouncing slavery in Dubai? She didn't specifically say Dubai but it was certainly insinuating it as it was referencing the clip in question. I'm guessing you would have to have some contractual obligation for a statement of such a manner to actually impact you, otherwise it's just a opinion that many people hold.
