Recently, JiDion and Pokimane published a video together, revealing that the two have buried the hatchet after JiDion and his fans attacked Pokimane in a targeted manner last month. As of writing this post, the new fan AMA video has nearly 3 million views and is the #2 trending video on YouTube, demonstrating the enormous interest in the two formerly feuding producers’ new collaboration.
JiDion claims he messaged Pokimane on Discord and inquired if they could meet up. They then made a film together, which they teased earlier this month with a photo of them eating chicken sandwiches together.
JiDion remarked in the video, “I just don’t want to continue to keep beefing with her.”
While eating Chick-Fil-A, the two had a dialogue in which they answered fan questions from Twitter. The tone of the chat was pleasant. Pokimane even stated near the end of the video that she would be interested in shooting additional content with JiDion the next time he comes to town. Pokimane also stated, in response to a query, that she does not believe he is sexist or misogynist, despite some of the things he said and did being sexist.
JiDion was permanently banned from Twitch in January after instructing his followers to harass Pokimane on her stream. JiDion admitted in the video that he was a little tipsy at the moment. They not only tormented Pokimane, but also her fans, with many of JiDion’s fans reportedly sending direct messages to people in Poki’s chat. Pokimane eventually logged out for the night, while JiDion received a permanent Twitch ban for breaking Twitch’s hateful conduct policy. JiDion and his followers continued to harass Poki via Twitter and Instagram live streams, so the situation didn’t end there.
Ninja got involved as well, vowing to contact Twitch to have JiDion unbanned, and then his wife Jessica Blevins threatened to sue Pokimane for defamation for pointing out the Ninja’s comments.
