Shortly after Twitch locked his channel, Greek told people that he was hit with a 24-hour ban. That time has now elapsed and one of the more lively personalities on the platform can now come back in full forcer.
Greekgodx is a famous name among live streaming circles; known for his hilarious on-stream antics and shocking weight loss journey, Greek has amassed a massive audience on Twitch, boasting well over 1.3 million followers.
However, Greek’s fans were surprised to see him hit with a ban on November 30 for no apparent reason, leading to a slew of speculation as to why the streamer was suddenly suspended from the site.
Although there has been no direct confirmation from Twitch, some theories claim that he may have breached the platform’s Terms of Service by allegedly watching street fight videos.

Still, others theorized that it might have been the result of yet another DMCA claim, with the broadcaster potentially streaming copyrighted music or other material on his channel.
However, in the end, it turned out to be nothing more than a slap on the wrist. This was confirmed by the man himself. “24-hour ban,” he said. “See ya tomorrow.”

Still, this isn’t the first time Greek has been banned from the site and some believe it might not be the last.
In September 2019, the streamer was hit with a 14-day suspension over what he claimed was a “silly comment about gender” regarding SoundCloud’s options when its users make an account.

Having stated that SoundCloud was “catering to cucks,” the British broadcasting star quickly apologized for the comments in a subsequent Tweet, claiming that it was “just a joke” and that he was “really sorry to anyone I offended. I didn’t mean to be hurtful or hateful.”
While there’s no telling what the reason for Greek’s most recent ban is at the time of writing, fans are hopeful that he won’t be away from the platform for too long — although considering the recent wave of Twitch bans lately, he’s certainly not alone in being unable to broadcast.
