Hasan Piker, a political commentator and Twitch streamer, put England's Queen's mourning on the spit, making a comparison to North Korea in their disregard for unelected leaders.
Hasan Piker has been one of the most vocal opponents of Queen Elizabeth II since her death. During Shit Camp, a collaborative live streaming event hosted by QTCinderella, the notorious political commentator rushed to his own impromptu streaming platform to commemorate the monarchs' deaths.
England has entered the nation's 12-day mourning period, which includes a nationwide casket showing accessible to members of the general public. Though the Queens death has been broadcast on television, the United Kingdom's mourning period has continued to broadcast information regarding the Queen's death, although now more about the logistical issues.
Hasan made a reference to North Korea and its authoritarian regime while watching coverage of the Queen's funeral. The streamer added that while the world at large mocks North Korea's adherence and reverence for its authoritarian regime and leaders, England's mourning period for its monarch bears a striking resemblance.
I mean, this is North Korea's shit. This is precisely what they mock North Korea for, Hasan pointed out the apparent contradiction, but once again, when we are doing it, it's adequate, and good, and just. When North Korea does it, it's because it is authoritarian, and bad, and wrong.
Although Hasans has a lot of content, especially his views on the monarchy, he was met with considerable resistance in his exchange. While England adopts King Charles III, Hasan has, and likely will continue to, make his case against the royal family known.
