Young Turks’ History of Sexism Extends to Cenk Uygur’s Nephew, ‘Woke Bae’ Hasan Piker
Following the explosive revelations of Cenk Uygur’s racism, sexism and pro-rape stances — the progressive icon apologized and blamed the fact that he was in his 30s and a Republican at the time of the disturbing commentary.
However, the Gateway Pundit has uncovered far more recent evidence that the culture at the network did not actually change with Uygur’s political party and appears to run in his family.
In an Instagram post by TYT host Ana Kasparian in September of 2014, ‘Woke Bae’ Hasan Piker, Amir Nikoui and Brett Erlich sat around a screen enjoying the leaked nude photos of celebrities that were made public via a breach of Apple’s cloud services suite iCloud.
“Co-workers looking at the leaked nudes from the hacking scandal while I judge them,” Kasparian wrote.
Those whose nude photos were made public without their consent included Jennifer Lawrence, Kaley Cuoco and Kate Upton.
Though many, especially on the left, condemned those who were spreading and promoting the photos, as they were meant to be private — Piker could not contain his excitement over the massive violation.
“OMG I GOT TO SEE JENNIFER LAWRENCE NAKED,” Piker tweeted. “Nudies are only for the eyes of the intended delivery address and their close friends. Except for when icloud gets hacked. #CelebGate #JLaw”
Kasparian was not pleased with her coworkers’ behavior, as can be seen from these archived tweets.
“Not surprising at all. Apparently these guys think it’s totally fine to violate someone’s privacy,” Kasparian tweeted. “These guys don’t give a shit about the privacy of women b/c at the end of the day they get 2 see tits.”

Kasparian added, “Girl, I work in the middle of this shit every single fucking day. I’m exhausted, and tired of wasting my time.”
As the Gateway Pundit previously reported, in March, Kasparian let it slip that she had experienced sexism when she first began working for the Young Turks — claiming that she was passed over for hosting the first hour because of her gender.
During the segment, Uygur and Kasparian were discussing Liz Wheeler, the host of One America News’ Tipping Point, regarding her comments about feminism and the women who marched on International Women’s Day.
“I used to think feminists were unbearable. Like: feminism…who the fuck needs feminism? Ugh, they just play victim. And you know I’m gonna work hard and I’m gonna get what I want through working hard,” Kasparian begins. “Then I started working and I’m like oh….holy shit, there’s a lot of sexism. And not necessarily in this company… Although, you know… no I’m gonna keep it real. Look, TYT has come a super long way since I started working here. But there were issues — there were issues in the beginning. Okay, like John [Idarolla] hosting the first hour before I hosted the first hour, and then why was that? Like that was some bullshit, right?”
According to a longtime friend of Uygur, who asked to be kept anonymous for the time being, there is a massive culture of nepotism at the network — which led to Piker becoming their rising star despite the fact that he is a massive pig.
“Cenk’s nephew Hasan Piker routinely talks about who at the office he has slept with and once said, ‘I told Cenk he needs to get some better pussy in here,’” the source told GWP. “When Hasan is talking about ‘quality pussy’ at the top of his lungs, he’s doing it three seats away from Dave Koller, head of Human Resources and predator of 14-year-olds.”
Koller, as we previously revealed, authored a diary-style post on the Young Turk website about an eight day long road trip with Uygur in 2005. In the post, he discusses meeting a group of girls, in a small Pennsylvania town, who appeared to be between 14 and 16 years old. He recalled asking them if they have ever had sex and described them as “whores in training” and “little spoiled brat bitch young American girls on their way to becoming abused porn actresses or dispensable property in a New York City prostitution ring.”
He also detailed hitting on teenagers with Uygur in a separate incident during the trip, in the presence of their parents.
“Drive through Navajo country to Monument Valley, where the John Wayne films were shot. Cool fucking place. We hit on these two cute French teenagers while their parents were standing right next to them,” he wrote.
Koller is currently in charge of Human Resources for the Young Turks, and would be the person that someone would go to if they needed to report sexual harassment or worse.
Shocking new reports have also come out of Got News on Saturday, detailing Pikers’ low opinions of women.
The Got News report revealed that on July 18th, 2012, two days after Yahoo’s historic decision to hire its first female CEO, Marissa Mayer, Piker cruelly disparaged Mayer, a pioneer and icon for women in Silicon Valley, on the basis of her sex. Piker wrote, “Yahoos biggest challenge isn’t that it’s shares went down 41% in the last 5 years, it’s that they have a female CEO.”
On July 29, Piker took to Twitter to articulate his belief that “Its pretty much unfair how easy life is when youre a hot girl.. until you turn 35 I mean.”
On July 11th, 2012, Piker tweeted a link to a Total Frat Move article titled “30 Reasons To Hook Up With A Freshman” and described it as “The bible for our senior year.. 30 reasons to go for freshman chicks #TFM.”
The article lists all the perks of preying on young freshmen girls, claiming that they become “sexually-adventurous drunk,” are thin, will have “hot pledge sisters,” and that they don’t know your reputation yet.
Piker has also demeaned both Liberal and Conservative women, such as Sarah Palin, who he claims to have a fetish for.
“I cannot, for the life of me, get over my Sarah Palin fetish.. #gamechangeismy50shadesofgrey,” Poker tweeted in 2012, referencing a film about the 2008 election.
Got News reports:
“Piker seems to also view former Texas State Senator and Democratic gubernatorial nominee Wendy Davis as nothing more than a sex object. In a series of flagrantly sexist (and very strange) tweets from the fall of 2013, Piker wrote “I don’t know what’s next for Wendy Davis’ political future but I wish her personal future involved a divorce and dating me like tomorrow,” asked a female reporter covering Obamacare whether the law could lead to him receiving a colonoscopy from Davis, and then declared that Davis’ campaign for governor “has got me all hot and bothered,” all within the span of three weeks.”
Likewise, he tweeted in August of 2013 that Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, who is currently fighting against sexual harassment in our government, “can get it.”
Senator Kirsten Gillibrand can get it.

For the past year, The Young Turks has rallied against Donald Trump claiming he is a misogynist pig — perhaps those in glass houses should stop throwing stones.
