Pokimane and Trainwreck unexpectedly chat to reconcile past beef: “Most corrupt figures on Twitch” – In a series of Twitch dramas, one unexpected conversation has recently unfolded between Pokimane and Trainwreck, shedding light on a feud that sparked in 2022.
The roots of the conflict lie in a broader debate about the ethics of gambling on Twitch. Pokimane, the platform’s most-followed female streamer, took a vocal stand against gambling content. While Trainwreck, a prominent broadcaster and co-founder of Kick, was actively involved in such streams.

During the height of this controversy, Trainwreck accused Pokimane and Mizkif of “destroying his character” in the context of the gambling debate. In a live stream, he went on to label Pokimane as “one of the most corrupt figures on Twitch.”
Fast forward to October 8, 2023, and Trainwreck surprises viewers by gifting 100 subscriptions during a Twitch stream. This act of generosity prompts Pokimane to confront him about the past accusation.
In a donation message, Trainwreck explains his gesture as an attempt to settle their differences and promote neutrality, emphasizing a positive day filled with love. Pokimane, seizing the opportunity, asks Trainwreck why he had previously labeled her as the “most corrupt” person on Twitch.
“I figure since you say it’s a positive day and it’s all about love that we settle our differences and at the very least be neutral,” he wrote. “Either way, have a good rest of the stream.”
“Yeah, I never wanted to, like, beef-beef,” Poki stated. “But, just out of curiosity, can I ask? And again, I’m saying this under the pretense of, I’m not trying to beef. I’m really not. I’m just so curious: Why did you call me the most corrupt person on Twitch? I just wanna know. And then we can move on. I thought that was a little funny.”
Surprisingly, Trainwreck expresses uncertainty about making such a statement and requests context through a clip. Pokimane, rather than fueling the fire, assures Trainwreck that she is not seeking to initiate or perpetuate any conflict.
The exchange is a departure from the heated debates of 2022, indicating a willingness from both parties to move past their differences. While Pokimane expressed curiosity about Trainwreck’s past statement, she also communicated her desire to “squash the beef.”
Fans welcomed this unexpected interaction, finding it refreshing to witness the two influential streamers engage in a positive dialogue after a year of tension and public disagreements.
