Earlier this year, IShowSpeed was accused of racism for repeatedly yelling “Konnichiwa”, which translates to “hello”, to a Chinese man misunderstanding him for being Japanese. He later apologized to his fans for being offensive.

Before, he was also accused of being misogynistic for his violent and discriminatory remarks against a female player in Valorant, Get off the f**king game and do your husband’s dishes, b***h!”. This ultimately led to him being permanently banned from the platform.

IShowSpeed was also widely criticized for lighting fireworks in his bedroom. During the 4th of July celebration, Speed infamously lit the fireworks inside his room, though his fans repeatedly advised him not to.

Among his infinite controversies, the most problematic was probably the joke that got him permanently banned from Twitch.
