Popular Twitch streamer Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker was left red in the face after accidentally missing a donation. The commentator’s mishap couldn’t have happened at a worse time.

Hasan is one of the most popular faces of Twitch, pulling in thousands of viewers to his variety broadcasts. The personality entertains viewers with a mix of gaming, and commentary on social issues.

However during his latest stream, the star was mortified after a missed donation happened at the worst timing ever. His rant coincidentally failed to soften the blow for a viewer who donated with a message about an emotional subject.

Hasan mortified over bad timing

The streamer was reacting to a popular episode of 90 Day Fiance when a donation came in that said “I’ve been watching you for a while now and you’ve helped me a lot. Today my first-ever long-term girlfriend broke up…”

Unfortunately the Twitch star did not hear it, and began to launch into a poorly-timed rant. “Your ex girlfriend is doing the exact same nasty kind of s**t that she did to you to other guys now. You just have to live with that reality.”

Pouring more salt in the wound, he exclaimed, “Everything she did in the bedroom with you she is doing with everyone else.” Eventually the personality saw his chat, and realized his mistake. “Oh my God!” he exclaimed, putting his hand over his mouth. “I’m so sorry, dude, I swear to God I did not know.”

Mortified, Hasan continued to apologize to the viewer and explained he wasn’t talking about him. “Your ex girlfriend is not doing it. Okay? We were just talking about another ex girlfriend. I wasn’t referencing you.”

He then clarified to the donator that he was talking about a Joe Rogan clip. “It’s literally a Joe Rogan bit. I’m so sorry. It’s probably better I don’t show you the Joe Rogan bit. F**k!”

The streamer looked through his chat and saw all the messages being spammed about bad timing of his rant. “Oh no!” he let out, before putting his hand over his mouth again.

The mishap wasn’t really Hasan’s fault, given the sheer amount of messages that streamers can receive at any given time. This isn’t the first time a Twitch donation has had incredibly bad timing either. Back in September 2019, Nymn suffered a similar fate.

If nothing else, this is an example of the live nature of streams – mistakes can happen. Regardless, the personality continues to crush it on the Amazon-owned platform. At the time of writing, he’s amassed 306k followers to his channel.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
