Is IShowSpeed Gay? His Sexuality Explored!

No, IShowSpeed is not gay. Even though he confessed that he was gay in one of his live streams, he later revealed that he came out as he was angry and out of his mind.

IShowSpeed (real name: Darren Watkins Jr.) is a former Twitch streamer, gamer, and YouTuber from Ohio. He is one of the streamers with the quickest rate of growth, whose YouTube channel has more than 16 million subscribers.

It’s interesting to note that IShowSpeed’s success did not stem from a connection to media companies or gaming groups like Sway House or FaZe Clan. He also didn’t become wildly popular on any other platform, such as TikTok or the now-defunct Vine. He is renowned for his boisterous, strange, aggressive, and flamboyant nature on his multiple gaming and entertainment live streams.

Previously, the 18-year-old had a transgender girlfriend. Additionally, he also confessed that he was gay in one of his live streams. However, people are curious to know what the truth is since he has always been dating women. Well, here’s everything you need to know about his sexuality.

On September 12, 2021, he posted a video stating that he is not gay. As he admitted that he was upset when he came out on the live stream, he begged followers to forget the revelation. In the video, he said,

I didn’t mean to say it. It was just a misunderstanding. Trust me, I’m straight.

Of course, many of his followers got upset as you do not get to mess around with your gender. Similarly, Peepjxsh criticized the YouTuber writing, “Of course, he would make a video saying he’s straight. Because his whole community is toxic and homophobic.”

But then you have to remember that it’s IShowSpeed after all. He literally got famous because of his unusual yet entertaining behavior. Don’t get surprised if he comes out as gay in the coming days.

IShowSpeed’s Net Worth!

According to numerous reports, IShowSpeed‘s net worth is estimated to be around $10$12 million. He initially gained popularity on YouTube as a gamer, and he became well-known for his live streams. Although he gained notoriety after the pandemic, his YouTube channel was created in 2016 and remained dormant for two years before Speed published his debut video, an NBA 2k18 shoot-around footage.

Due to Fortnite’s popularity, Speed attempted to play the game that year and perform a live stream, but neither endeavor was particularly successful. Speed was discouraged by this slow start and made the decision to postpone his YouTube career in order to concentrate on his studies and football for the ensuing two years.

He was urged to try YouTube again by a friend after the pandemic when he had nothing else to do and a lot of free time. Speed started with NBA material once more and this time began to acquire popularity quickly as one of the few streamers producing high-quality NBA 2k20 and 2k21 content.

Speed soon began experimenting with his content by playing Fortnite and Five Nights at Freddy’s, which made his live streams the focus of his content. Speed became one of the fastest-growing YouTubers in the world after accumulating more than a million subscribers in less than a year. After going viral on social media platforms like TikTok, where his fan base began sharing clips of his live streams, he gained even more fame. These clips went viral in their own right.

Speed relocated to Los Angeles alongside well-known Twitch broadcaster Adin Ross after his breakthrough. With the release of his debut album, What Else IShowSpeed, which includes many of the music videos on his channel and most of which have received over 10 million views, Speed appears to be concentrating on his music career at the moment.
