The Twitch leak has been hard on many popular streamers; however, it seems like streamer Hasan "HasanAbi" Piker, in particular, is facing major backlash.

The leak revealed payouts for many streamers such as xQc, Pokimane, Ludwig, Mizkif and HasanAbi himself. While xQc's $750K in September 2021 alone left many wide-eyed, HasanAbi has been called out for his socialist stance after his payout was revealed to be over $200K.

This has left Twitter divided. One portion of the community believes that Piker never hid the fact that he had money, while the other labels him a hypocrite for promoting "eat the rich" while he makes over $200K a month.


HasanAbi faces backlash for his socialist stance after his salary reveal

HasanAbi has always maintained a socialist stance, believing that the rich should be taxed more. The streamer has never denied that he makes a lot of money. In fact, he has explicitly stated that he wishes to be taxed more due to the amount he makes. Furthermore, his subscriber count is always visible on the screen during his livestreams, so figuring out how much money he makes is not very challenging.

The streamer previously also received a lot of backlash when he bought a house in West Hollywood, one of the most lavish parts of town. People believed that he could have supported his socialist stance by buying a house that was far less lavish, and they, therefore, labeled him a hypocrite.

HasanAbi has even been compared to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who went to the Met Gala in 2021 wearing a dress that said "Tax the Rich".

Fans of HasanAbi are defending their favorite streamer by saying that it's irrational for people to get mad at HasanAbi for the amount of money he makes: The amount he makes through Twitch subs is because people themselves pay money to watch him perform. However, the opposing section claims that Hasan is hypocritical for preaching socialism when he earns $200 million a month.
