Hasan found a Turkish media outlet yesterday that reported on one of the most obscure pieces of information you'll find about Americans' fundraising efforts to help Turkey following the devastating earthquake that struck earlier this week.
Under a headline that Hasan said translates to "Asian broadcaster raises funds for Turkey," the Turkish publication stated that iShowSpeed, who is incorrectly described as a Twitch streamer, raised $200,000 in local currency to aid the country's recovery efforts.
Hasan himself set up the fundraiser that has now raised more than $1.2 million, and Hasan donated $45,000 to the cause entirely from his own pocket.
Hasan found the article humorous and attempted to explain to the indoctrinated why the report was so wildly biased in the way it presented facts.
"Everyone here is incredibly critical of the Turkish government," he said. "I'm not implying that you see how terrible they're fucking us over or whatever."
Hasan did not appear to be offended by the way he was left out of the book, but rather stated that he was presenting it to viewers as a way to instill confidence in them.
"I mention this because it further demonstrates how much of a grip the Turkish government has over its independent outlets," he said.
This is an example of how the Turkish media censors reports of individuals who are critical of the Turkish government. Because Hasan is an outspoken political commentator who isn't shy when expressing his views negatively, he claims that all media outlets in the country avoid making a mention of him.
This resulted in the outlet instead talking about how iShowSpeed raised money, when in fact he contributed to Hasan's fundraiser, but at a point was fooled into not donating by online trolls who told him that Hasan would take any money he donated.
