A streamer has hit back at her trolls by sharing a photo of her 'real' face.
Imane ‘Pokimane’ Anys is one of the biggest names on Twitch, with millions of followers tuning in to watch her play video games.
But with her being such a huge star on the platform, and a woman, she's had to contend with a lot of criticism from people making comments about her appearance.
Specifically, trolls have taken to sharing a photo of her not wearing any make-up.
So, this week, Anys hit back, reposting the same picture, along with the caption: "This face makes more money than you’ll ever see in your life."

Since she shared the snap, Anys has received a fair bit of support from her followers.
Fellow streamer Schlatt also backed her corner, sharing a photo of himself using a filter and joking: "Wrong."
To which Anys responded with a comment that hinted at the type of remarks she receives from her haters.
She said: "Urgh, men and their filters. Bet you’d have ZERO viewers if you took it off!!"
Last year, Anys opened up about the burn out streamers can feel because of their success.
She said she was concerned about taking a step back from Twitch because of the need to be constantly present for her fans.
Anys said at the time: "It is just so hard to properly enjoy your time off without thinking that you should or could be doing more, especially with streaming.
"It's the one thing where there are just about no diminishing returns if you can stream 20 hours a day, every single day."
She also said that she wanted to take more time to focus on things that inspired her and not doing stuff just for the sake of it, saying that she was "burnt out, unlike any other way I've been burnt out in the past."
Anys explained: "I just find myself doing so many things that I'm not excited about.
"I'm just a f*****g should-er. I always do things that I feel like I should do. All these years, I've been living my life and framing it in such a way where I avoid having any regret.
"But avoiding regret does not mean you are pursuing what you want. Those are two very, very different things."
She added: "Why do I have seven figures in my bank account for? To feel like a slave to what I'm expected to do or to the capitalistic idea of making the most amount of money you can? ... I just don't want this to be my norm."
