Following Fedmyster’s much-anticipated return, Pokimane announced that she will refrain from getting associated with him in the future after the allegations of sexual misconduct surfaced.
Pokimane has publicly shown her distaste towards Fed after he was removed from OfflineTV in light of the sexual misconduct allegations brought forward by former housemates Yvonne ‘Yvonnie’ Ng and Lily ‘LilyPichu’ Ki. Yvonnie and LilyPichu also happen to be friends with Pokimane which makes it obvious for her to cut all ties with the likes of Fed.
Despite Fed apologizing for his misconduct the community still holds him accountable which makes his return controversial rather than a smooth one. He promised to educate himself by using his influence to spread awareness about harassment against women.
Fed’s comeback had obvious implications of Pokimane coming across a plethora of questions about him which made her want to get it over as quickly as possible. She put out her views on it before her chat goes all crazy looking for her piece on Fed’s return.
“It’s not my place to say whether or not a person has changed because their actions and words will eventually speak for themselves,” she said.
“All I know is that I can’t be friends with someone who sexually assaulted people that I care about and handled it the way that he did.”
“We’re going to move with our lives. He’s going to move on with his life. And that’s life. And that’s really all I’ve got to say.” she added.
It’s safe to say that the community hasn’t welcomed him in the best of ways, some may argue that he is not welcomed at all, bottom line is that he has another shot at building his career on Twitch, an opportunity that many in his position would have been stripped off.
