Imane 'Pokimane' Anys is one of the biggest female streamers in the world. The content creator has tens of thousands of viewers every time she goes live, mostly with games like Valorant or fun activities like her birthday hot tub stream where she was joined by other Offline TV members. Many of the biggest Twitch creators will occasionally take their stream outdoors with them in what's called IRL streaming, but Pokimane doesn't sound like she's interested in it after seeing one of the Botez sisters being harassed.
Dexerto spotted a moment of a Pokimane stream where watches a video from Andrea Botez. The Botez sisters, Alexandra and Andrea share a Twitch channel where they play a lot of chess primarily but also will combine that with IRL streaming. In the video Pokimane sees, Andrea is being asked by someone in a restaurant if they can sit with her and she says no. The man gets upset and then leaves the restaurant to appear outside of the window Andrea is sitting in front of to make obscene gestures to the camera. Yeah, it's gross.

After seeing the clip Pokimane says: "This is why I'm scared of IRL streaming. And I've already had bad/weird experiences. Ew." The streamer is obviously disgusted by the behaviour of the man in the clip and it's understandable that she's someone who would be at risk of this behaviour if she tried IRL streaming too.
Of course, some jerks want their 15 minutes of fame. If they see someone filming themselves in public, especially a woman who may not be able to physically defend themselves or their property, there are going to be people who try to draw attention to themselves in ways the creator isn't comfortable with. It's a shame that that's the reality of the matter but people will do anything for a little bit of attention sometimes.
