Twitch streamer Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker was left shocked after accidentally broadcasting a racial slur on his stream from an iDubbbz YouTube video.

Many Twitch streamers open their streams up to fan interaction by letting them donate with text-to-speech or ask for media requests.

While these are usually harmless, there has been a trend of troll attempts – with some streamers putting themselves in trouble with what they show. A similar incident occurred during Hasan’s May 24 broadcast after loading up a YouTube video from iDubbbz. 

Hasan can regularly be found chatting to viewers on his Twitch stream.

During his May 24 stream, the popular IRL streamer had been taking viewer recommendations on YouTube videos to watch. After flicking through a number of Ian ‘iDubbbz’ Carter’s popular Content Cop upload, he switched on the one dedicated to Daniel ‘Keemstar’ Keem.

However, Hasan was shocked left after starting the video up and seeing that iDubbbz uttered a racial slur in his introduction.

“What the fuck dude?” the streamer called out after hearing the slur. The anguish on his face was clear to see as Hasan immediately put his head in his hands after realizing what had just appeared on his stream. He added a solitary “Ok,” after quickly turning off the video and putting his head back in his hands.

Has Hasan been banned from Twitch?

Even though Twitch streamers have been banned for similar slip-ups in the past, Hasan’s accidental airing of the slur has landed him in any trouble – that he has disclosed, anyway.

The popular IRL streamer may not get into trouble with the livestreaming platform, as some fans may fear, considering he has been able to stream since his May 24 broadcast.

Typically Twitch simply asks that streamers make every effort to stop the content when something like this occurs, and Hasan’s immediate reaction likely saved him any issues.

Twitch star “Pokimane” has received a slew of strange gifts from fans – one of which was a body pillow with her own face on it.

During an October 6 broadcast, TheStockGuy — who has gained notoriety on the platform for educating his viewers about finances and the stock market — revealed he’d been sent 126 lbs of Ocean Spray brand cranberry sauce.

“What is wrong with you people?” the streamer asked, seeming genuinely baffled by the situation. “Somebody sent me 126 lbs of cranberry sauce! What — where am I supposed to put this? Isn’t there some charity or something this money could go to?”

Although the he appeared to be utterly flummoxed by the viewers’ decision, he decided to make the best of the unexpected prank, stating that he would donate the sauce to his local food bank for the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.

“I mean — you know what? Joke’s on you!” he continued. “I’m giving this to the local food shelter for thanksgiving, so they don’t have to purchase cranberry sauce! That’s right — we’re making something good out of this!”

It seems that TheStockGuy’s viewers found the scenario to be completely hilarious — and while it certainly is worth a hearty chuckle, it’s good to know that the broadcaster is putting his viewer’s practical joke to good use, in the end.
