The Young Turks host Hasan Piker has a history of making bizarre and often troubling references to sex when talking about work, according to a GotNews review of Piker’s official Twitter account.
Piker, whom Buzzfeed called “Woke Bae” when it profiled him in May, has recently been exposed as a sexist in two GotNews pieces detailing his history of fantasizing about female politicians and making sexist, disparaging comments about women in general. Moreover, Piker came under fire over the weekend for viewing illegally hacked, sexually explicit photos of celebrities at work, much to the disapproval of fellow TYT host Ana Kasparian.
Piker, who has worked for TYT since early 2014, has also made some comments on his Twitter account about the workplace that may have made more of his coworkers uncomfortable. For instance, on August 28th, 2014, Piker tweeted “Dish washer soap dispensers w/ an angle are created for me to spray all over my shirt and look like I jizzed on myself at work”:
Earlier that month, Piker had also written a truly bizarre tweet about masturbating in the office:
It is unclear whether Piker’s coworkers saw these inappropriate tweets as contributing to any sort of a hostile workplace. However, Piker and his two male coworkers certainly upset Kasparian when they gleefully viewed nude photos of celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence at work. Kasparian posted a video of them in front of a work computer on her Instagram indicating as much at the time, and she also took to Twitter to denounce them:
These revelations about Piker follow another TYT scandal that broke earlier this month, when TheWrap reported on racist and sexist blog posts written by TYT founder Cenk Uygur, who is also Piker’s uncle.
Furthermore, former TYT star reporter Jordan Chariton has vowed to sue his old employer after it terminated him last month over charges of sexual misconduct and misuse of company money. Chariton continues to profess his innocence.
