Former Twitch streamer HasanAbi recently took a dig at the purple platform. Back in December 2021, the Twitch political streamer was banned from the purple platform for saying "cracker" on the livestream.
Soon after his ban, the social media personality took to his official Twitter handle to share the news with his Twitter followers. However, after receiving tons and tons of backlash from viewers, the former Twitch streamer went on to explain himself.
As per Hasan, the controversial term is not even a racial slur, and the ban is totally unfair. This statement turned everything into a great mess for the former Twitch streamer.
HasanAbi takes a dig at Twitch four months after his ban
Back in December 2021, Twitch decided to ban HasanAbi from the platform for using the controversial word on his livestream. The ban was allegedly for saying the slur 'cracker' in reference to white people, something that Twitch considered to be hate speech.
Naturally, the news soon went viral on multiple social media platforms, creating a lot of drama back then.
The Twitch streamer recently took to his official Twitter handle to post a sun-kissed picture of himself with a peculiar caption:
Evidently, with this tweet, Hasan was trying to take a sly jab at Twitch for the unfair ban back in 2021. At the time of writing, the political commentator has amassed over 886k subscribers on YouTube, making him one of the most controversial yet popular content creators of all time.
HasanAbi's tweet garners mixed reaction from fans
Back when he announced his ban, there was plenty of mixed reaction from the community. The response is similar now as well. While the majority of viewers are taking the tweet as just a mere joke, a handful of other viewers are quite offended, again. A few tweets read:
With all this in mind, the Amazon-owned platform has its own set of rules and regulations that need to be followed by every streamer out there on Twitch. Violation of any kind can straightaway lead to a ban from the purple platform. To put it simply, the purple platform directly bans hateful conduct, which comes under its rules and guidelines.
However, something worth noting here is that the streamer's popularity and followers count on Twitch do not make any difference in this regard. And that's precisely what happened to HasanAbi back in December 2021.
