Popular Twitch personality Eric ‘Erobb’ Robbins has “exposed” fellow content creator Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos while streaming on April 27, claiming that he is very different off stream compared with how he acts on stream. 

Who are Erobb and Greekgodx?

Erobb is the younger brother of popular League of Legends streamer ‘Tyler1’, but boasts his own impressive audience, with over 100,000 followers on Twitch. He regularly broadcasts IRL streams and recently called out Twitch for its alleged double-standards.

Greekgodx is a British streamer, with over 750,000 followers on Twitch. His audience regularly tune in for his IRL streams and reactions to YouTube videos. The two have been frequent collaborators for some time now, but Erobb called out Greekgodx for being entirely different when broadcasting than when offline.

The two were streaming on April 27, when Erobb stopped the normal flow of his stream to have serious words with Greekgodx. “You are so much different off stream now dude,” started Erobb.

“I’m gonna expose you,” he continued. “You are so wholesome off stream, but on stream you’re a fucking dick now. You know what I think it is? It’s your chat bro, they changed you. Your chat is so toxic towards you, and I think it puts you in a bad mood.”

Greek’s Twitch chat is known for regularly poking fun at the streamer, often regarding his weight. Twitch chats also tend to have moderators, who determine what constitute appropriate comments and ban people accordingly, but Greek’s Twitch chat has no moderators.

“You know why I’m always so happy?” asked Erobb. “Because my chat loves me and they’re wholesome towards me. And I go in your chat and they’re just shitting on you the whole stream. Off stream you don’t have to deal with them and you’re happy.”

In response, Greek can be heard agreeing with Erobb, as it seems that he appreciates his friend’s honesty.

There was a mixed reaction from viewers, as one Reddit user stated that they disagree, and that “Greek is an adult and he makes his own conscious decisions. Anyone blaming his chat for whenever he acts toxic is cutting him too much slack.” However, others sided with Greekgodx, and suggested that his Twitch chat is at least partially to blame for the streamer’s alleged toxicity.

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.
