Twitch streamer HasanAbi has criticized Trainwreck for “undermining” his personal donation to an earthquake relief fund. After major earthquakes hit Turkey and Syria last month, HasanAbi and iShowSpeed teamed up to raise money for people impacted by these natural disasters.
Trainwreck was seemingly not impressed by his donation
They have managed to raise $1.4m so far from fellow streamers and Twitch viewers. HasanAbi personally contributed $50,000 to the fund, but Trainwreck was seemingly not impressed by his donation, saying in a conversation with willneff that it was a “small percentage” of the total fund.
HasanAbi hit back on his own stream, calling out Trainwreck by saying: “Look at him undermining 50 grand. Like, I’m sorry I don’t have $700 million from crypto and gambling sponsorships. That’s crazy.”
He went on to say that influencers can cause a lot of harm by undermining the efforts of others to raise money for charitable causes. HasanAbi also noted that a huge amount of work goes on behind the scenes to try to carry out these types of fundraisers.
