Political content creator Hasan “HasanAbi” Piker has responded to Ludwig Ahgren’s recent rant about the MasterChef meta on Twitch.
For the past month, big-name Twitch stars like Felix “xQc” Lengyel and Imane “Pokimane” Anys have been streaming reality shows, including many cooking dramas, while chatting with their viewers. For xQc, these have been his most-viewed streams yet, and he even got the attention of celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay.
But many streamers dislike the new meta and hope that there will be consequences for those participating in it. It seems that may be about to come true, as Pokimane was recently banned from Twitch for streaming Avatar. Now Ludwig, who recently moved to YouTube, has talked about the subject on a recent stream, calling out xQc, Mizkif, and others for watching TV shows that may get them slapped with DMCA suspensions.
HasanAbi wasn’t a fan of the way Ludwig went about the issue, stating that he was “snitching” on Twitch streamers.

HasanAbi decided to respond to Ludwig’s recent stream that called out popular Twitch streamers that were broadcasting reality shows. He said that Ludwig was going about it in the wrong way.
“Making a video like this is even worse, dude. Making a video like this only draws attention to it and it’s just dry-snitching,” HasanAbi said.
HasanAbi said that a big name like Ludwig making this kind of video could lead to an “ad-apocalypse” on Twitch. While HasanAbi said that Ludwig’s point of view was “smart and reasonable,” he added that Ludwig probably knows that doing this will “turn into something.”
“Ludwig is a very smart guy. As a smart dude, he absolutely knows pointing this out in a YouTube video is only going to draw more attention to it, especially because a big part of this is directed by companies personally taking action,” HasanAbi said.
It looks like streamers won’t have to beef over the TV show meta in the near future. More streamers are jumping off the bandwagon now that Pokimane was banned for having an Avatar: The Last Airbender watch party with fans. This was Pokimane’s first ban on Twitch and will last for only 48 hours.
