HASAN HITS BACK AT “ANGRY” TWITCH VIEWERS AFTER USING ABLEIST WORD ON GTA RP STREAM

WHAT HAPPENDED?

Hasan Piker, one of Twitch’s biggest streamers, came under fire on March 23 after using the word ‘ret**ded’ while playing GTA RP.

IT WAS AIMED AT A VIEWER.

“Not drive towards the f**king stairs? Are you f**king retarded?” he snapped back at the viewer.

The clip immediately did the rounds on Reddit and social media, with the more-viewed version of the clip now deleted.

But, when viewers began pestering Hasan for an apology on stream, he wasn’t happy about it.

“You actually want an apology? I’m sorry for saying the r word ok? But you don’t want an actual apology, you’re a freak dude. 

- HASAN

 “You just want to sit there and be angry, so here, I’ll play into it further - I’m not apologizing, so you can be angrier.”

- HASAN

Others argue that the circumstances were different in both cases, regarding who the word was aimed at and why it was said.
