Pokimane email accidentally leaked while streaming Call of Duty for the first time

Pokimane accidentally leaked her own email address and Activision ID during a live stream, resulting in friend requests aplenty.
The extremely popular Twitch.tv stream, Imane "Pokimane" Anys, has been in the news quite a bit lately, suffering an embarrassing incident, then subsequently escaping the Twitch ban hammer

This time around, Pokimane accidentally leaked her own email address, as well as her Activision ID, while streaming herself setting up Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.

Pokimane email & Activision ID leak

On 29th May, the 24-year-old Moroccan-Canadian Twitch streamer was setting up her copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare. At the time, she revealed she has never, ever, played a Call of Duty game.

Since Call of Duty: Modern Warfare installs can take quite a while, Pokimane got up to refill her bottle of water. Unfortunately, Pokimane left her email and Activision ID fully visible on the screen, and everyone looking closely at the stream could see it. 

This, of course, resulted in a plethora of friend requests. As Pokimane came back to realise she leaked her own email address and Activision ID.

The clip below shows Pokimane returning to find her email address and Activision ID leaked. However, it only shows the aftermath of friend requests, for obvious reasons.


After burying her head in her hands for several seconds, Pokimane seems to have taken this whole email leak pretty well. 

Pokimane explains: “You know, I’m almost not mad because it’s comical for me to go AFK at that exact moment. It’s f#*&ing comical.”

With Pokimane's email address now out on the internet, she is sure to receive hundreds, if not thousands of emails from fans, and others.

Hopefully, the famous Twitch.tv streamer doesn't get harassed, as we all know how volatile the internet can be.
