Popular British streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has revealed an insanely austere punishment for unruly Twitch viewers, which will see them banned from multiple channels on the platform.

Sitting at over 1.1 million followers on Twitch, Greekgodx is one of the most popular streamers in the world. He recently moved to the USA following his move to TSM as a full-time content creator.

He’s also known for his interactions with a group of US-based streamers. It’s with these friends that Greek has devised a seriously strict ban plan for Twitch viewers who break the rules.

Greek’s TSM announcement video poked fun at American culture.

“Nick’s making a program where, if one person’s banned from one person’s channel, they’re banned from all of our channels,” Greek said, on April 17. “So that means if you get banned from my channel, you’ll get banned from Soda’s (Sodapoppin), Nick’s (nmplol), Train’s (Trainwrecks) and every other streamer that’s gonna be on it.”

Essentially, the program being worked on will ensure that any banned viewer cannot interact with any of the channels of the streamers participating. It will stop one viewer from being abusive in one channel, and then simply changing channel when they are banned.

Nick ‘nmplol’ Polom followed up Greek’s announcement with some extra context, explaining why the program is necessary for some viewers.

He revealed that they still have to clear it with Twitch to check it’s allowed, but also that it’s going to be far more complex than Greek let on.

“Not everyone’s gonna have this power,” Nick said. “Not every mod is gonna have this ability… it’s only gonna be reserved for the worst offenders, like the guys that come in here and spam the ‘n’ word and stuff like that.”

A lot of the streamers’ viewers were shocked by the severity of the ban, but became more understanding as Nick explained the reasons for its implementation.

However, one Twitch streamer, Jinnytty, explained why it might be an issue. Jinny touched upon the “different standards” streamers have in regards to what is an acceptable comment and what isn’t.

She explained that “crumor” (cruel humor) can vary between channels and this may lead to a blanket ban that isn’t necessarily warranted.

However, Polom indicated that it would not be used ambiguously and that only clear acts of racism or hatred would be punished.

We’ll have to wait and see what form it takes, if Twitch do indeed allow it to be implemented on their platform.

Drake needs no introduction. As one of the biggest names in rap music across the globe, the star has amassed a net worth of over $150 million. Not only is his net worth insane, but so is his car collection.

Canadian musician Drake – real name Aubrey – is one of the best-known names in rap music. With a ridiculous number of awards to his name, he has become an almost permanent fixture on mainstream music charts. As you may imagine, his success had led to him building up quite the car collection.

Reportedly, the total value of his current car collection is worth nearly eight-figures. With his continued success, it is likely that he will break this barrier within the next few years if all goes well.

Drake is a big fan of British supercar makers McLaren, and has a number of their cars in his fleet. One of his personal favorites is his white McLaren 675LT. Costing upwards of $338,000 the 675LT is one of McLaren’s most ‘hardcore’ cars ever, with 666hp from its twin-turbo V8 engine.

His Lamborghini Aventador is a special edition LP 700-4 model.

Not one to go with ‘basic’ versions of cars, Drake purchased a limited-edition Lamborghini Aventador LP700-4. With 700hp on tap, this Lambo will do 0-60 in under 3 seconds, and cost Drake a cool $400,000. Drake has also previously said the car “makes him feel like Christian Bale (in Batman)” when behind the wheel.

Swapping performance for all-out luxury, Drake owns one of the plushest cars money can buy – a Mercedes Pullman. Typically used by royal families and government officials, this high-class Merc is perfect for whisking Drake around in absolute luxury. It doesn’t come cheap, however, retailing at over $600k.

Opting for a one-off car is a great way to ‘flex’ your wealth, and that’s exactly what Drake has done with his $700k+ Mansory Bushukan Phantom. Featuring a custom design, along with a solid gold OVO hood ornament in place of the RR ‘spirit of ecstasy’ the Phantom is perfect for ultra-plush travel.

Drake’s incredible hypercar collection

In terms of hypercars, his collection is as crazy as you’d imagine. His Bugatti Veyron Sang Noir is one of only 12 in the world, and cost a whopping $2,000,000. Drake also has a LaFerrari in Yellow, which likely set him back around $1.5-$2 million.

If you thought the Bugatti was wild, the crown of Drake’s collection will blow you away. He has reportedly bought one of the world’s first Devel Sixteen hypercars. With an alleged 5000hp from its 12.3l, V16 engine, it is one of the rarest cars in the world, costing $2,200,000.

Drake’s custom private jet

Of course, we can’t forget his custom Boeing 767 private jet, but that won’t fit in a garage, so we’ve excluded it from the list.

All told, Drake’s car collection is currently sitting around the $8 million mark, if reports are to be believed. Who knows where it will sit in a few years time.
