Popular Twitch streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos was banned from Twitch after sharing his opinion in regards to genders.
While doing an in-real-life stream, Dimitri brought up the music sharing website SoundCloud’s gender option when a user creates a new account.
“Go make a SoundCloud account and wait for the option where it says gender, you will f*cking omegalul… It does male, it does female, it does other, and it does prefer not to say,” Dimitri said, “Imagine having other and prefer not to say, whatc*cks are they catering to now? If you put other they should say sorry SoundCloud is not for you, goodbye and f*cking delete you, dude.”
Dimitri’s comments that were regarded as “hate speech against genders” was banned from Twitch, the period of the ban is still unknown.
Dimitri was quick to Tweet about his ban, apologizing for what he said on stream and it wasn’t his intention to hurt or offend anyone.
“Got banned for a silly comment about gender i just wanted to say it was a joke and i’m really sorry to anyone i offended. i didn’t mean to be hurtful or hateful. ill update u guys on how long the ban is for when i can.” Dimitri tweeted.

A similar situation occurred back in February when streamer HelenaLive said that only two genders exist while live streaming, which resulted in a permanent ban from Twitch’s platform.
Twitch’s community guidelines are strict in regards to any form of hate speech. “Hateful conduct is any content or activity that promotes, encourages, or facilitates discrimination, denigration, objectification, harassment, or violence based on race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, sex, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age, disability, medical condition, physical characteristics, or veteran status, and is prohibited.”
This is not the first time Greekgodx has been banned on Twitch and it’s likely that his suspension will be longer than 3 days.
