Twitch streamer Hasan Piker went into the details surrounding the comment that got him suspended from Twitch, saying he got “an insane amount of death threats” at the time.

Almost a year ago in August of 2019, Hasan received a 7-day Twitch ban for joking that the United States “deserved” 9/11 while watching clips on one of his political commentary streams.

The former Young Turks contributor has since returned to Twitch, but he recently told Ethan Klein on the H3H3 podcast that while he still gets plenty of comments about the incident, despite it dying down since last year.

“I was getting an insane amount of death threats, more death threats than I’ve gotten in my entire life, and I’m used to getting death threats in my line of work,” Hasan said, before going on to explain the scariest part of the aftermath.

“The only way it could have gotten worse, they put [the clip] on Fox and Friends, and I know Donald Trump watches Fox and Friends so I was like ‘oh no, he’s going to tweet about this,'” the streamer revealed. “I was literally like, if he tweets about this, I’m dead. Someone will actually kill me. If he doesn’t tweet about it, we’re good.”

“Luckily, it stopped there. Then for weeks, months on end, I still get sh*t for it all the time, it still gets brought up in conversations I have with Fox News commentators or pundits. It doesn’t really matter, overall.”

Hasan went on in the interview to fully explain and defend the political reasons behind why he made the joke itself, which he has since admitted definitely wasn’t in the best taste.

Hasan returned to Twitch streaming after his 7-day suspension and still has plenty of loyal viewers.

“My critics say I think 9/11 was good or something, which is crazy,” he laughed. “Cancel Culture by the way ‘exclusively‘ a leftist idea, yet, for some weird reason Republicans love doing it and manufacturing outrage.”

Hasan got right back to streaming and providing his unique brand of commentary after his 7-day suspension was up, and has apparently made it through being “canceled” in one piece.

Dixie D’Amelio tears up over painful nose surgery aftermath in BTS vlog

Dixie D’Amelio has finally released the behind the scenes vlog of her nose surgery from back in September, with the uncomfortable after-effects leaving the much loved TikTok star emotional.

Charli and Dixie D’Amelio have taken the TikTok world by storm, very much as a family unit. The sisters, along with their parents, have spread their content wings past TikTok, and into YouTube, the podcast world, and have even dabbled in beauty.

The youngest sister Charli grossed fans out in August when she released a rather gruesome video of her own nose surgery to help fix her breathing, showing a very detailed look of the doctor scraping out pieces of cartilage and septum.

About a month following Dixie received the same procedure in order to fix breathing problems that had accumulated thanks to similar injuries that Charli received. Dixie even had to call out fans who claimed she was ‘copying’ Charli for getting surgery, despite the fact that the procedure was not cosmetic.

Dixie postponed her nose surgery because she wanted to continue playing sports.

After waiting for over a month, Dixie has now finally unveiled the behind the scenes vlog of the lead up to her surgery on her YouTube channel, and it’s safe to say it wasn’t a particularly fun experience.

She included videos of the consultations between her and her surgeon, with him demonstrating that that main point of the surgery was to correct a twist in the septum that was caused by sporting incidents that led to a whopping 14 concussions.

The immediate after-effects were clearly uncomfortable, Dixie saying “I cried right after surgery because I wanted to go home so bad. And I just wanna snort, I wanna breathe in so deep but there’s cotton on my nose. And my forehead’s itchy but it’s also numb.”

In a slightly delirious video taken in the mirror, Dixie said “I keep crying and I don’t know why,” but even after an uncomfortable looking cough, continues to sing “keep your head up, it’s bedtime.”

While the star seemed in relatively light spirits initially, all things considered, things quickly took a turn for the worst the next day, when she said that “I had such a rough night trying to sleep.”

“My nose doesn’t hurt at all, but I have an awful migraine, and I get really bad migraines, so that’s just where all my pain is right now.” The TikTok star also admitted that she “couldn’t stop crying last night over my thoughts.”

However, now that time has passed since the surgery, Dixie looks to be in better spirits than ever, much to her fans’ relief. In the description of her vlog, she also thanked her surgeon Dr. Raj Kanodia for “doing such an amazing job and making me feel so comfortable from beginning to end!”

Dixie D’Amelio is a TikTok influencer with over 42 million followers on the app. She and her younger sister Charli D’Amelio have garnered a combined follower count of a whopping 137 million followers.
