Hasan ‘HasanAbi’ Piker is known across Twitch for his studied political insight, but the popular streamer has shown his frustrations amid the dispute between Steven ‘Destiny’ Bonnell II and Mychal ‘Trihex’ Jefferson.

Destiny and Trihex are the two pillars of the DT Podcasts, where the pair discuss the latest ongoings in a range of topics, from gaming to politics (and everything in between). However, the pair are currently in a dispute, after Destiny admitted that he privately used racial slurs

Subsequent to the altercation, Destiny defended his use of racial slurs by labeling race as a “social construct”, while acknowledging his ethnic origin in light of those who are permitted to use the such language based solely upon their ethnic origin.

Destiny (Twitch)Destiny welcomed “all challengers” on his subreddit.

Given the heat and traction of the pair’s feud, HasanAbi caught wind of the situation and gave his two cents as Destiny brought Hasan into their quarrel while attempting to defend himself. 

Destiny opened by stating: “Nothing I do, is performative. So, I’m not going to (for instance) – I’ll use Hasan, as an example – I’m not going to talk to a black person like Trihex and say: ‘Hey, the n-word, it’s always…” before Hasan slammed his fist on his desk to express his aggravation.

Piker proceeded to vent in disbelief, as he exasperated: “What a f**king liar, dude! What a f**king weaselly little liar, dude!”

He then went on to address the camera directly, as he prompted his chat: “Can someone at least f**king enlighten Destiny that he’s literally lying to his audience… What a f**king piece of sh*t, dude.”

Destiny (having recognized Hasan’s reaction) then issued his thoughts on-stream, by seemingly jeering Piker’s endeavors while scrutinizing his Reddit activity. 

As Bonnell peered over Reddit, he reacted with a somewhat ironic undertone: “What a hero… He’s taking hits, boys, but he’s still posting, he’s still debating online… He’s still fighting in the trenches!” Destiny then finished his tirade by exclaiming: “What a goddamn warrior…”

The spat comes after the trio were banned from Twitch in August under DMCA claims, after streaming a democratic debate on Twitch. Following the issues that have ensued, the next installments of the DT Podcasts have been canceled until further notice.

Popular drama page TikTok Room delighted its 1.8 million followers this week when, on November 25, they announced on their Instagram that they would be hosting their very own awards show!

The post also announced that voting would be on Friday 27 November, with the awards then streaming tonight on Saturday 28 November.

Details surrounding what the award categories were was initially vague, with the account teasing more information throughout the week before opening the polls on Friday for fans to vote for some of their favorite TikTokers in various categories.

Despite the categories remaining unclear prior to voting being open, that didn’t stop some of TikTok’s biggest stars endorsing the awards and encouraging fans to vote for them.

Among other famous faces like Skai Jackson, Nessa Barrett, and Jacob Sartorius, Sway House star Bryce Hall endorsed the awards in a video, joking that he was probably nominated in the “most problematic” category, while Charli D’Amelio, who recently reached 100k followers on the TikTok, told her fans that “there is a special award show on Sunday” and encouraged them all to vote.

Although some fans found that there was difficulty submitting their votes – with TikTok Room explaining in an Instagram post that this was due to heavy traffic on the form- by the time the polls were closed, TikTok Room announced that over 500,000 votes were cast after teasing fans earlier that day with just how close some of the categories were.
