Twitch star Felix ‘xQc’ Lengyel has responded after fellow streamer Greekgodx was supposedly banned from Twitch for ‘mocking’ an Asian family.
Greekgodx received his second Twitch ban in a month on July 28 for “hateful conduct.” However, he later denied any such wrongdoing after a viral clip from his stream surfaced on the internet, allegedly showing him speaking in an exaggerated Asian accent.
After explaining that his ban would last for two weeks, Greek revealed that he is in the process of appealing against the suspension.
He soon came under fire from xQc who called on him to “stop being a f*cka*s and get a grip” over his comments.
“This isn’t you,” xQc tells Greekgodx
Following on from his Twitch suspension, Greek claimed: “If I hear a single streamer mock a British accent I’m gonna freak out that is 100% racist from now on.”
It comes after the streamer denied accusations that he was being ‘racist’ and claimed the family he was impersonating in the clip were of Greek heritage.
xQc took offence with the comment and called on Greek to “get a grip” and “f**k off.” He also, as various streamers have also claimed, accused Greek of playing up to a character saying “we all know this isn’t you.”
Soon after, xQc responded to a Twitter user who questioned Twitch’s decision to ban the streamer now, despite Greek allegedly doing the accent for a number of years.
“It’s almost like people learn, grow, and improve,” xQc replied to the inquisitive tweet. “Crazy right? The concept of getting better seem to be something you people completely forget exists because you refuse to do so yourself. We used to do x and y […] Move the f**k on.”
This isn’t the first time that things between xQc and Greek have kicked off and the dispute over Greek’s ban will likely continue to heat up over the coming weeks.
