During his May 24 broadcast, popular Twitch star Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos hit back at fellow streamer Melina ‘melina’ Goransson after she claimed he was “rude” to her.

Greekgodx is one of the top streamers on Twitch, pulling in over 1.1 million followers to his channel. In February, he signed with popular organization Team SoloMid.

However, one person not a fan of him is fellow personality Melina. The TSM star responded to the Swede after she made several videos and claimed she is “leeching” off him for views.

The streamer had just started his broadcast when he responded to a donation about how to grow on Twitch. “I’ll show you how you can grow. So what you can do here is go over to this forum, and mention my name and say that I suck and I’m a bad guy,” he said, pulling up the LivestreamFails subreddit.

He then played a clip from Melina’s May 24 stream where she explained one of her top clips is her calling Greek “rude.” “Yeah, apparently because you mentioned my name!” he joked. “It’s called the GGX effect. You mention my name, you go viral. You’re welcome for the views!”

While continuing to watch, he hit out at the Swedish personality for speaking about him and claimed she was doing it to please viewers. “This is just leeching at its finest. “He’s being rude.” You’ve already mentioned this once. You mention it again, just to please the c**k lords!”

In the full clip Greek reacted to, the Swedish star elaborated further on what she meant by her past comments. “When I met Greek, he was being rude. He was being really f**king obnoxious. You can go watch the VOD, and tell how he’s really in my face, and being really rude!”

This isn’t the first time Melina has been critical of the TSM personality. Back in April, she explained, “I’ve only experienced bad things about him. He’s only been very b**chy towards me. The first time I met him he was like really rude. He seems kind of desperate.”

The clip went viral last month with over 200k views at the time of writing.

Regardless of the criticisms, Greek continues to be one of the platform’s most watched personalities. He’s amassed millions of followers to his channel, and pulls in thousands of viewers a broadcast.

Spanish streamer ‘TheGrefg’ has broken Ninja’s world record for most people watching a Twitch stream during the Galactus Fortnite event.

David ‘TheGrefg’ Cánovas made Twitch history while streaming the Galactus event, which marked the end of Fortnite season 4, when he had more people watching him at once than any other individual Twitch streamer ever has in history.

The Spaniard was watching and reacting to the event, and captures appear to confirm that he reached a total of 660,000 people watching his stream at the same time before Twitch unfortunately crashed.

The previous record you might remember was held by Ninja from when he teamed up with rapper Drake, where the duo peaked at 635k viewers at once while playing Fortnite back in 2018.

This insane amount of simultaneous viewers in a broadcast was almost double the figures of the previous record, held by  DrDisrespect — now streaming on YouTube — when he had 338,000 during his return stream in February 2018.

Now, the title for most-watched stream on Twitch now belongs to TheGrefg, and while there are no official figures yet, screenshots and clips definitely seem to indicate the streamer managed to bring in than 660,000 people simultaneously.

Grefg was far from the only streamer posting impressive viewer counts during the Galactus event, which actually “broke” Twitch and caused the site to temporarily crash following the big reveal. This is the big reason why the official viewer count, while definitely impressive, isn’t exactly known just yet.

The event itself officially closed out Fortnite Season 4, with the Season 5 update arriving at 9 PM PT / 12 AM ET / 5 AM GMT on Wednesday, December 2, according to Epic Games, with downtime expected to last all the way up to 1 AM PT / 4 AM ET / 9 AM GMT.

After that, the brand new season will kick off, and Fortnite fans — including Grefg — will get to check out all of the new content. Whether the streamer will be able to repeat his impressive record-breaking feat remains to be seen, but we certainly wish him the best of luck.
