Trash talking while live-streaming may not be the best thing to do for Twitch streamers, and as Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has figured out the hard way, it can definitely backfire. 

Playing Intrude live on March 5, the popular British streamer went on a passionate rant about certain streamers who focus most of their content on reacting to things on the internet.

“These guys don’t say anything funny, the just go ‘zooLUL’ and that is it, and they stream snipe,” he said. “If they were funny, but they’re not as funny as me mate, they’re boring stream snipers!” 

It was at this point that a couple of stream snipers in his game responded to Greekgodx’s rant with their own set of insults aimed at the Brit.

“Greek all you do is watch videos, you’re not funny anymore either,” one stream sniper said. “Calm down.”

The streamer’s reaction was hilarious as he stopped his rant mid-sentence when he heard the retorts and just sat there with a stunned expression frozen on his face.

At this point, another player decided to pile on with his own roast: “Watch out guys, Greek is going use all of his 81 IQ!” 

This comes after Greekgodx’s name has been in the headlines frequently over the past week, as he was recently involved in a controversial back-and-forth with fellow popular Twitch personality Alinity.

The British streamer jokingly theorized that, despite her numerous questionable actions while streaming, Alinity has managed to avoid being banned on Twitch thanks to some secret relationship with the CEO.

He also commented on her NSFW picture with one of his own, to which Alinity responded with a curt “You look great at this angle.”

TikTok star and singer Dixie D’Amelio has deleted the teaser for her upcoming song with rapper Wiz Khalifa after receiving overwhelming negative criticism from viewers. Her mother has also released a lengthy statement on the matter.

Dixie D’Amelio is a household name in the social media age; the older sister to Charli D’Amelio (TikTok’s most-followed creator), Dixie has carved her own path, most notably releasing her own original songs with such features as Lil Mosey and, most recently, Wiz Khalifa.

However, it doesn’t seem that online critics are too pleased with her music, as seen by the oodles of negative comments on the teaser for her upcoming song with Khalifa, which she initially posted to TikTok.

Many commenters brutally roasted the TikTok star’s lyrics and singing ability, with one writing, “Does she really think she’s a singer now?”

“God help you and your lyrics,” another wrote.

Dixie has since removed the teaser in wake of the criticism, taking to Twitter to vent about her frustration regarding the overwhelming negativity.

“I’m just trying to have fun,” Dixie wrote. “I love music and photoshoots. But I’m losing passion for everything now.”

“I literally can’t be excited about ANYTHING,” she continued.

Dixie’s mother, Heidi D’Amelio, has also spoken out on the issue in a lengthy Instagram stories post.

“To those sh***ing on people who are doing things they love and are getting attention for it — you should find something you love and go do it!” she said. “To anyone who takes the time to type hate towards someone who is having fun and doing what they love, please know you are a classic case of a weak person who is truly pathetic.”

It doesn’t look like Dixie’s nor her mother’s response to the issue is getting any sympathy from critics, though, who continue to levy negativity against the TikTok family royalty for their attitude toward the situation.

“When you’re rich yeah, it’s easy to get those ‘million of chances to do things they love,’” one critic replied.

“Anything you put on the Internet is going to get hate no matter what you do,” another chimed in. “She’s just going to have to get over that and keep her posts up and move forward.”

What’s your take on the situation? Do you think the hate toward Dixie’s creative pursuits is becoming too overwhelming? Or do you think Dixie’s mom has a point about the constant trolling? Let us know on Twitter at @DexertoTrending!
