Non-black celebrities are regularly pulled up for their use of the dialect. Iggy Azalea, Ariana Grande, and Awkwafina have all come under the firing line. Back in July Olivia Rodrigo was slammed by Twitter users for using a “blaccent” and using phrases as “I be trending.” Now a famous name got added to the list which is Pokimane. She is a gamer and streamer, she regularly streams on Twitch. In a recent stream, she un intensely uses the African American Vernacular English on the title of the stream. Users also confess on Twitter that they stopped watching Pokimane Twitch stream after the AAVE language use. We do not support this kind of thing on the streaming platform.
