New York Street Fighter player/commentator Chris Hu and his family lost his home in a fire today, you can see him be interviewed in the video above around the two minute mark. Our hearts go out go out to him and his family. has set up a paypal fund where you can donate.

Chris is a great guy, I did an interview with him a few months ago and he was just a joy to talk to. Chris is really a guy who can keep you smiling. 

Even a few dollars can really make a difference in a situation like this. Heres hoping Chris and his family can bounce back from this tragic event.

Shit man... that sucks. Chris seems like a real nice guy and it's terrible to hear something like this has happened to him and his family.

Hopefully people give generously.

My heart goes out to Chris and his family i will be putting in what i can and i hope you all will as well. If you are a street fighter fan and follow streams at all over the last two years then Chris has given you tons of free entertainment. I feel its the least we can do for a man who is very much in need of help for his family.

LVC hits it firmly, even a few dollars can help. Lets all do what we can.

Man no doubt. Thoughts and prayers to Chris and his family. I hope they can get through this unfortunate event. I remember that interview here. Not only is he a recognized player and entertaining commentator but he seems like a genuine person. Real talk, I don't know too many other gaming communities who recognize their players and help out in their time of need. So definitely a few bucks can really change things.

omg. Hmm I'll see what I can muster. I myself dont work but still live under a roof with family. Shit, with what happened to Chris is horrible. Even more so when you gotta redo all the things you've worked so much for. People come here in the United States to find a good job and a good living for themselves and they also send of things here to their families back home to help them out. Its not easy. Fuck yeah of course I'll help out. Though isnt there a way we can also help those other families that are stuck with the same problem as Chris Hu and his family?

My heart goes out to Chris, his family and all the families that were impacted by this fire. For all the times he's made me laugh it's nothing to me to toss some money his way.

This is a great thing to see the community come together and support one of their own, it's beautiful every time.

Holy shit dude! This takes my breath right now. I mean, I don't even know Chris in real life, but he has really given me some awesome time full of fun while watching streams and stuff. My thoughts are with him and his family, and of course everyone that is involved.
I myself do not have much money, as I'm a student but I will check my paypal today and send some bucks over.
Every little bit counts, right?

This is really sad news. I will certainly donate. What a tragedy. He's put a smile on my face more times in the last year than I can count, so I'm with Shway. It's nothing to donate to someone who can do that for me.

Hopefully Chris Hu's family don't scare when it comes to this kind of thing. =] I just donated! I hope they get back on their feet quick.

It's probably worth updating this post to add that MadKatz is raffling off a Super4 TE stick for those who donated.

Dudes.. This really sucks. I dont think any of us could imagine losing everything. Having to start all over again and losing everything that we are worked for. Chris Hu is probably one of the few commentators i enjoy listening too. And his ryu is amazing. Every who can.. Maybe should spare what they can. I dont think any of us.. Have ever listened to a Chris Hu commenting on a match and stayed silent. Hes made us all laugh i think. If you are not sure about donating. Go watch a match thats commented on by Chris Hu. It just makes WAY better. Ill be donating what i can and hope everyone does the same.

One of my Fav Chris Hu vids. If this doesnt make you smile. You dont know comedy.!v=EdlK7xeJJEQ&feature=related

There really aren't words adequate enough for something like this.

Simply, I hope and wish the best for Chris and his family.

wow, talk about someone so un-deserving of such a horrific event. This dude is so humble...warmest regards Chris!!

Which website is it that sells the 'you no scare, I don't scare' t-shirts? Perhaps they can do a deal where all profits go to Chris and his family.

April 13, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterHatchetJob

excellent idea those shirts are freaking awesome!!

April 13, 2010 | Registered CommenterOverlordStrider

Wow... hes been in chinatown all this time? He's right in my neighborhood... Small world.
I wish him and his family the best of luck!

My condolences to everyone affected by this fire. Luckily everyone was saved - it could have been much worse. I have nothing but love for Chris Hu and his GDLK commentary; I will definitely be donating some money for him and his family.

Glad EVERYONE here is level headed enough to have a heart and look at the bigger picture. Comments and jokes on other sites just make me sick. It's not like Chris came asking us for help and people like Markman are NOT using this incident as promotion for Madcatz with a give away. People need to understand that there are people who recognize the players, genuinely care, and want to do something about it. Remember he did the same thing when another player passed away, sorry I forget his name. But people should think of this as the fighting game community's way of doing things. Who knows, maybe our contribution can go beyond Chris and his family and can evidently help out their community. Hopefully there are other fund raisers going on for them as well. Also, someone unfortunately died in the fire.

So honestly if you can give what you can great for you, but if you can't don't be rude about it. There other articles to troll about.

Very well said and way to keep it classy IPW users. This is a terrible event for anyone to experience, but it feels my heart with pride to see the outpouring of support coming out for him. People like to talk a lot of junk about video gamers. I like to think that gamers are just like every one else and we are good honest people. Its stuff like this that shows the true character of any community. Be it local, or a national video game one.

I don't know Chris Hu. But i respect the man. Hes one of us and makes me who is nothing but some scrub tier player feel great about street fighter. If we can't help pick up someone like that in a time of need then what is the point indeed. This is not the first time SF fans have come together to help their own and it won't be the last. Stay strong Chris Hu and my best wishes to your family.
