Twitch star Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker has called out “insane” members of his fanbase, exposing messages from an overenthusiastic viewer who accused him of hiding a purported relationship with fellow streamer ‘Pokimane.’

Pokimane is one of Twitch’s top broadcasters, best known for her humorous interactions with fans and hilarious commentary — but some members of the site’s community believe she’s in a covert relationship with Hasan in spite of her clearly single status.

These rumors date back for quite some time, with both entertainers having addressed the topic in past streams; but it doesn’t look like their explanations are enough for a few curious viewers.

Twitch streamer and political commentator Hasan Piker spoke out against fans who pried too far into alleged private affairs.

Hasan brought up the subject once again during a June 8 broadcast, noting that he’d received a disturbing direct message from a fan who claimed that he was keeping his alleged relationship with Pokimane a secret from the community.

“Lol, you and Poki just got back at the same time,” Hasan read aloud. “9 PM last night. Lol you should just make it less obvious that you met up.”

The streamer held up his phone to show off the message for good measure, lest anyone not believe him, clarifying that he’d been isolating outside of attending protests.

“I took a screenshot of this, ‘cause I was like, ‘What the f**k is this bro?’” he said of the message, incredulous. “Are you insane? The only other person I’ve seen outside of these f**king protests have been Will and my brother. These guys are insane, dude. What the f**k are they doing?”

“If they’re doing this to me, okay, someone who Imane has appeared on the stream of, like, f**king a year ago, what the f**k are they doing to her, or all of the other friends she lives with and s**t?” he continued. “These people are nuts, dude.”

Pokimane even expressed her feelings on the topic a year beforehand, claiming that she’d “tried to separate [herself] from people once all that started happening,” calling the situation “gross.”

Needless to say, it’s never a good idea to pry into public figures’ private lives, no matter how famous they are — especially in such an invasive way.

Dave Chappelle finally tells Joe Rogan when he’ll do a full podcast

The Joe Rogan Experience podcast enjoyed a relatively brief appearance by Dave Chappelle on an episode with Donnell Rawlings. And, to the joy of Rogan and Chappelle’s fans, the two set a tentative date for a full show together.

Rogan’s audience is gigantic and, as such, the names on his guest list frequently are as well. But, despite murmings of interest, Chappelle has long eluded one of the podcaster’s extensive interviews. That may soon change, as the iconic comedian confirmed that this new JRE setup in Austin suits his fancies and merits a full appearance.

A little over two hours into Rogan’s episode, No. 1,567, with Rawlings, headsets plopped off, seats got shifted, and both host and guest stood up to make way for a surprise appearance by Chappelle. Rawlings was glad to reunite with his friend from the Chappelle Show and Rogan seemed excited to finally get the comedian on the mic.

All it took was a new bunker studio in Austin, a lit joint, and a cup of coffee before the three were back to talking topics and, without much prying, Chappelle offered to come back on the show for a full episode. The tentative date for that episode? Soon after the presidential inauguration.

For mobile users, the segment begins at 2:30:20.

While spending about an hour chatting would sound like a full podcast to most people, that’s far from what Rogan’s fans have come to expect from his show. So, while Chappelle’s stint on the episode was substantial, he was acutely aware that a more thorough appearance was deserved.

After dapping up Rogan and Rawlings, Chappelle took his seat, got situated with some grass and caffeine, and eventually began discussing how much he enjoys Austin, Texas, along with the new studio.

From the ring to the studio, Rogan’s repertoire of interesting interviewees is boundless.

“I like this setup a lot, man. It feels homey. You actually just tricked me into doing a podcast. I’m going to come and do it for real, for real. As a matter of fact, I should come after the inauguration.” 

Rogan, who has mentioned wanting Chappelle on the show numerous times, including in December 2019, was fully on board with the scheduling opportunity: “Let’s do it. That sounds great.”
