Soccer fans are very much aware of the antics of IShowSpeed. He is the self-claimed biggest Cristiano Ronaldo fan that exists on the planet, and he has done quite a few things in order to prove that point. Although in recent times, he talked about changing sides to become a Lionel Messi fan. However, a recent video showed his true feelings toward Lionel Messi quite vividly.
IShowSpeed aka Darren Watkins Jr. has had a meteoric rise to fame, thanks to his unique style of raging and his funny pronunciations of soccer players in FIFA pack openings. He was very clear and very new to the game of soccer and the fans accepted his hyper energy with open arms. And from the very start, he claimed to be the biggest fan of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Since he blew up on the internet, he hasn’t looked back. Speed was selected in the Sidemen vs YouTube All-Stars match for purely entertainment purposes and boy did he deliver it. Speed’s match-opening tackle on KSI and his shirt smack on referee Mark Clatterberg were the moments of the charity match. Speed played the match with the number 7 shirt and also did the ‘Siuu’ celebration after scoring an offside goal.
Darren went on to show his love for Ronaldo when he chased the star man during his Manchester United spell. But his luck wasn’t really with him as he could not see him play live. So, he decided to go to Qatar to see Ronaldo play. However, Speed couldn’t reach Qatar until the Round of 16 stages, where Ronaldo didn’t even start.
Fans react as IShowSpeed destroys Lionel Messi shirt
Speed declared Cristiano Ronaldo as the GOAT after the Riyadh All-Stars vs PSG match on January 19. Cristiano scored twice while Lionel Messi managed only one goal in the face-off. At the match’s announcement, Speed said he will become a Messi fan if Ronaldo doesn’t win it. Although PSG won the match 5-4, Messi didn’t in terms of the individual battle against Ronaldo.
But one particular IShowSpeed video that made the fans react the most goes back to the World Cup final. Speed attended the match in a Portuguese shirt. However, he revealed his France shirt after Kylian Mbappe scored two goals to level the match. Argentina ultimately won the match 4-2 on penalties to become World Champions. Speed removed his France shirt to reveal an Argentina shirt beneath. This made the fans go crazy.
However, what he did next is even crazier. Speed removed his Argentina shirt, slammed it on the chair behind him, and stomped it again and again like a madman. The video comment section was full of funny and sarcastic reactions to Speed’s antics. The comment that has more than 9000 likes, said, “True Sigma never disrespects”, with sarcasm.
Another few comments followed the same path as the first comment and said, “A true sigma never betrayed his idol”, and “Real Sigma never change their idols,” referring to Speed as a sigma. Many fans also took Speed’s reaction as a work of disrespect. One comment said, “Bro that’s not sigma coz a sigma never disrespects a country.”
Another fan commented, “Remember folks, sigma is showing respect, not show disrespect,” pointing out Speed’s shirt destruction. One fan comment said that Speed did that under extreme frustration, “My man’s holding back an ocean of tears.” At the end of the day, Speed is still not 18 and clearly is very emotional and reactive. It might just have been one of those, moments of meltdown.
