Mini Bio on IShowSpeed

The influential American YouTuber, streamer, and internet personality, Darren Watkins Jr. who is widely known as IShowSpeed joined YouTube in 2016, uploading gameplay videos occasionally. He was born at Cincinnati, Ohio and is an American by nationality.  Around December 2017, Watkins began livestreaming and uploading videos of games such as NBA 2K and Fortnite, but only managed to average two viewers. Eventually, his subscriber count saw a rise in the span of a few months, reaching 100 thousand subscribers in April 2021, 1 million in June 2021, and 10 million in July 2022.



In December 2021, Watkins partook part in a Twitch “e-dating” livestream show hosted by Adin Ross. The exchange between Watkins and another participant, Ash Kash, escalated to what was widely interpreted as a rape threat. Watkins was the second contestant to be eliminated, and shortly after the game had ended, he quickly re-joined the Discord call and started sexually harassing Kash, slurring her repeatedly. Watkins was kicked out of the call again, with Ross apologizing to Kash for his behaviour. Watkins was later banned from Twitch. According to a Twitter post by him, Watkins was banned for “sexual coercion or intimidation.”

In April 2022, an old clip of Watkins playing Valorant on a live stream surfaced. In the clip, he tells a female player to, “Get off the fucking game and do your husband’s dishes.” This resulted in one of the game’s producers, Sara Dadafshar, permanently banning Watkins from Valorant and all other Riot Games titles. YouTube global head of gaming creators, Lester Chen, replied to the clip, saying he was “on it.” Watkins soon apologized for his behaviour, acknowledged that it was “wrong”, and explained that he had received racist comments from other players that day.
