The outlet Dirt 報告 last week that Piker purchased the $ 2.74 百万, 3,800-square-foot Mediterranean-style home. Located in the Beverly Grove neighborhood, the home has five bedrooms and 5.5 baths.

Some on Twitter suggested that Piker’s new investment was hypocritical given his left-wing political stances.

Piker responded: “[Y]ou literally have a patreon link on your profile lmao.”
He also defended himself on Twitter and found plenty of defense from other users.
