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.

Conor McGregor explains why YouTube boxing is “good business” for the sport

Jake Paul and Logan Paul helped popularize ‘YouTube Boxing’ in recent years, although it’s often described as a mockery of the sport. However, Conor McGregor explained why he isn’t against it and thinks it’s good business.

Conor McGregor has been focused on his upcoming UFC 257 bout against Dustin Poirier for a while now. However, that hasn’t stopped Jake Paul from doing his best to rope the former double champion into an exhibition boxing match.

Jake first called him out back in November 2020 after he knocked out Nate Robinson. Then, he taunted him to accept a $50 million fight offer several weeks later and has been flailing about ever since. 

He still hasn’t managed to get his attention. However, his antics did draw out comments from UFC President Dana White and Conor’s coach, John Kavanagh. Now, Conor has finally shared his thoughts on YouTube boxing as a whole, and here’s what he had to say.

Jake Paul has tried and failed to bait a response from Conor McGregor.

“A lot of people are criticizing [YouTube boxing] as maybe making a bit of a mockery of fighting,” asked an interviewer. It’s the predominant view among fans of combat sports. “I want you to weigh in on that for me.” 

“If they are fighting, well, then it can’t make a mockery of fighting, right?” said Conor. “They’re getting in, and they’re competing. I am not so much against it. The YouTube kid and the NBA star competing [was] good business.

“Am I into those competitions myself? It’s not the most high level if any level… [but] as they say if it makes dollars, it makes sense,” he added. “I know Dana and the UFC are not really into it, but… I’m not so against it. I think if people are willing to get in and take the risk of making that walk, I am certainly a viewer.”

Conor’s opinion might come as a surprise to fans who expected him to make scathing comments. However, as a businessman himself, it seems like he’s all for it. Plus, as he said, YouTube boxers are still fighting and giving it their all.

On another note, Conor didn’t seem too incensed about Jake. He barely mentioned him at all. 

Still, it’s only a matter of time before Jake responds, and there’s no doubt he won’t be too thrilled about being referred to as “the YouTube kid.”
