Pokimane announced on Twitter a few days ago that she has convinced the other members of Offline TV to host a hot-tub stream on Pokimane's birthday. Pokimane will turn 25 years old on May 14th, 2021. Having founded Offline TV, Pokimane often hosts massive events with the group.
The official members are Pokimane, Michael Reeves, William Scarra, Jeremy "Disguised Toast" Wang, Lily "LilyPichu" Ki, while Yvonne "Yvonnie" Ng is a house member. Below you can see Pokimane's tweet dated May 8th, 2021, where Pokimane explained the situation. Pokimane confirmed on the same day that the Tweet was accurate and that this would indeed happen.
The video where she confirms it is below.
Pokimane is one of the few streamers who doesn't necessarily oppose the Hottub meta. Instead, Pokimane is concerned about how much Twitch promotes gaming content over regular streaming. Still, Pokimane has decided to do the stream, and many fans are delighted.
Why is Pokimane hosting a hot tub stream on her birthday controversial
It is important to mention that the community has closely scrutinized the hot-tub meta. Twitch's TOS allows the streaming of bathing suits in a proper context. The platform has recently stated that bathing suit streams do fall under the criteria and are permitted.
Pokimane will live stream her birthday on May 14th on her Twitch channel. (Mass Effect Legendary edition will be released that day, so make a wise choice and download it.)
