The Entire IShowSpeed ​​Minecraft Clip Controversy, Explained

Darren “IShowSpeed” is never too far from controversy. The YouTuber is often criticized for his antics, like earlier this month when he set off fireworks in his bedroom.

The 19-year-old found himself once again at odds. In a broadcast uploaded to his channel on July 21, Darren was seen playing Minecraft where he demonstrated some suggestive gestures.

After the broadcast, he was attacked by YouTube for violating the community guidelines. IShowSpeed ​​took to his Instagram and his second YouTube channel to announce the news. He brought up the fact that he was banned and couldn’t make videos anymore.

IShowSpeed ​​claims that it has been banned and bids farewell to YouTube. You just got a notice from the community and the content was removed. That is all. He’s not going anywhere and breaking 10 million subscribers today. https://t.co/VsXV1sZxLC

Exploring the entire IShowSpeed ​​debacle on YouTube

The Ohio-born streamer pushed the limits a little too far on his stream on Thursday when he appeared to be making sexual advances towards an NPC named Jenny in a modified adult version of Minecraft. The streamer engaged in suggestive sexual acts, which he tried to censor by covering the screen to no avail.

The entire sequence lasted for a few minutes in which the 19-year-old was seen screaming and moaning. With almost 90 thousand concurrent viewers at the time, IShowSpeed ​​received a lot of criticism for its antics.

Although he didn’t face any action that day, Darren was struck out while broadcasting the next day. While it’s unclear how long he’ll be gone, the typical length of time a streamer is restricted is between one and two weeks, depending on the notices received.

In a video uploaded to his second channel, Darren announced:

“I got a strike from the last stream. The only stream I played the Jinny mod on and… the thing showed up and I didn’t know it was going to show up, so now I got strike man… so, I’m going to get off YouTube so peace man I love you guys…”

To cause more controversy, streamer Jake Lucky shared the controversial Minecraft clip on his Twitter account and drew attention to IShowSpeed’s reckless behavior on the stream.

Darren was quick to respond to her tweets, stating that Jake was just using him to get clicks.

@JakeSucky bro how is your problem seriously

@JakeSucky Wdym the context I just told you obviously I didn’t know they were going to show up so I deleted the stream it’s like dancing in gta etc

After receiving a lot of heat from Darren’s viewer base, Jake apologized.

I don’t regret sharing the Speed ​​clip, I would have done it for any streamer and have in the past. I’m sorry I didn’t censor it to my audience. I am sorry that now it is somehow racist and that my family is receiving threats. Please keep the hate directed at me and me alone.

Fans react to IShowSpeed ​​ban

YouTubers are not permanently banned until they receive three warnings. Knowing how YouTube’s algorithm works, coupled with the fact that the content creator was able to upload it to his second channel, fans are hoping he’ll be back streaming in a matter of days.

Here are some of the comments from fans:

Despite the controversy, IShowSpeed ​​reached the coveted 10 million milestone on YouTube, which it celebrated through a short stream on its second channel, Live Speedy. It remains to be seen if the content creator will stream again through his alternate accounts.
