While Twitch streamers often foster dedicated audiences, some of their viewers go all-out in showing their appreciation, as broadcaster “HasanAbi” found out.

Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker is a popular face in streaming culture, known for his political commentary for group “The Young Turks,” activism, and Twitch broadcasts, boasting over 172,000 followers on the platform.

While his viewerbase may not be as large as streamers like Pokimane and shroud, Hasan proved that he boasts some of the most dedicated fans, as one of them showed with an incredible gift.

Hasan opened mail sent to his PO Box during a stream on November 20 when he came across a package sent from a “longtime” fan in military service.

Inside the package were various mementos the fan had kept during his time in the military, including a ticket from a holiday party, their first achievement medal in the marine corps, and even a vial of oil from the boat they were stationed on.

In a letter, the fan explained why they had chosen to give Hasan such personal items, claiming that they had no one left to pass them on to as their daughter has autism and won’t mentally grow past two years old.

“I don’t really have anyone to pass these on to,” the fan wrote. “My daughter is my only child and is autistic. She’ll effectively be two her entire life, so I figured these might help the next time MAGA-chads accuse you of hating America.”

Needless to say, Hasan was understandably taken aback by the patriotic gesture and stepped away from his streaming setup, placing a hand over his mouth in shock as tears crept into his voice.

“Dude, that’s awesome,” Hasan said of the gifts. “…holy s***. That’s really nice, man. That’s really nice. Thank you.”

That’s not all: Hasan went on to upload a clip of the unboxing to Instagram, writing, “…I’m so incredibly fortunate to have the best community ever. And to all the chuds who think I hate America or those in the military, here’s an active service member who disagrees with you.”

While other streamers might receive a slew of gag gifts in their fan mail – such as Pokimane receiving an actual body pillow with her face on it – Hasan’s fan broke the mold, leaving nary a dry eye in the chat.

After months of back-and-forth, Jake Paul and Nate Robinson are finally stepping into the squared circle for their highly-anticipated boxing matchup. Here’s what you need to know. 

YouTubers strapping on boxing gloves and squaring up with one another was a trend kicked off by KSI and Joe Weller back in 2018. Since then, the concept has exploded – including KSI forging rivalries with the Paul brothers and fighting Logan Paul in a professional bout in Los Angeles. 

Typically, it has been all about a YouTuber fighting another content creator, but Jake Paul’s next fight is a little different. He’s fighting former NBA star Nate Robinson on the undercard of the Mike Tyson and Roy Jones Jr. exhibition bout – which is sure to be a spectacle itself. So, here’s what you need to know.

Paul and Robinson have been going back-and-forth for months, with their fight being delayed previously.

What time is Jake Paul vs Nate Robinson?

Despite the attention the YouTuber brings, the Paul vs Robinson bout isn’t the main event of the evening, so it’s hard to nail down an exact start time. 

Some reports have suggested that the pair should make their ring walks at around 4 am GMT on Sunday, November 29. In the US, that’ll still be Saturday, November 28 at 8 pm PST/11 pm EST, given that the main event is due to start an hour later at 9 pm PST. 

Of course, this could change given the results of the previous fights, so if you don’t want to miss a moment of it, you’ll just have to tune in from the start
