Popular UK streamer Dimitri ‘Greekgodx’ Antonatos has been banned on Twitch.
The content creator has received what looks like a temporary suspension following comments he made about gender and the gender options on music website Soundcloud.
It seems he was banned for the manner in which he spoke (breaking Twitch’s guidelines on hateful conduct). Prominent journalist Rod ‘Slasher’ Breslau makes the point below that another streamer, Tyler1, made similar comments but wasn’t banned for them.
Greek wasn't banned for saying 'there's only two genders', Tyler1 said on Twitch YESTERDAY and he's fine. Greek was banned for being a disrespectful asshole about it— Rod Breslau (@Slasher) September 19, 2019

Greekgodx said in the above stream: “Anybody can go and make a Soundcloud account and wait for the options when it says ‘gender’. You will fucking omegalul. It does male, female, other and prefer to not say.
“Imagine having ‘other’ and ‘prefer to not say’. What cucks are they fucking catering to now? ‘Other?’ Fuck off. If you put ‘other’, they should say ‘sorry, Soundcloud is not for you’, goodbye’ and fucking delete you dude.”
Greekgodx has since apologised on Twitter and said that he was joking:
It’s not clear how long Greekgodx has been banned for just yet, but based on his comment above it’s likely it’s temporary.
