It is certainly no easy feat to be called a “Woke Bae”. In modern times, “Wake” and “Bae” are two quite complimentary terms. Where Wake refers to someone’s ability to have the right attitude and perspective on social issues, Bae is a nickname that resembles a favorite.
So how did Hasan Piker become the “Woke Bae” of the Internet? Read on to find out this and other interesting details about the Internet sensation.
Hasan Piker Bio – Age
Hassan Piker was born on 25 July 1991 and as such is currently 27 years old. He has made a name for himself as an entertainment and political journalist from Turkey and has become very well known by providing videos on the YouTube channel “The Young Turks”.
Mr. Piker was born in Istanbul, Turkey, and the “bright” blood certainly seems to run in his family. His uncle is Cenk Uygur, a columnist, political commentator, and activist. Cenk Uygur is one of the co-founders of “The Young Turks” (TYT), an American web series with political commentary. Uygur is also co-founder of the affiliated TYT network.
Back to his nephew Hasan Piker, who graduated from Rutgers University in New Jersey in 2013. He graduated with a B.A. in Political Science and Communication and then went to the University of Miami where he earned a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA), Business Administration and Management, General. His educational background seems to have prepared him to be one of the most knowledgeable political commentators on the Internet.
Is He Gay?
Hasan Piker is not gay, although he does not appear to be in a heterosexual relationship at present. Many began to think he was gay after he drew an analogy with a gay commentator. But the man only made an illustration to illustrate the feeling he was expressing.
It all started when he was asked about his behavior towards Tomi Lahren, who he turned on in his videos and asked her to send him a DM. His answer was
“… I don’t believe that my treatment of Tomi Lahren was sexist. If I was a gay commentator and found conservative male experts attractive, I would ask Tucker Carlson for a date…”.
He further asked whether this would be considered sexist, suggesting that the notion of his sexist treatment of Lahren was based on the “prevailing patriarchal social dynamic” that women were not equal to men.
This illustration can hardly be taken to mean that Hasan Piker is gay, and since he is not married and is obviously currently single, a number of ladies can thank their stars.
