Controversial YouTuber Darren “IShowSpeed” Watkins had fans worried when he exposed himself on stream. But it looks like YouTube is blushing and turning the other way.

On August 16, IShowSpeed decided to stream himself playing Five Nights at Freddy’s on YouTube. The popular horror game includes a lot of jump scares from demented animatronics and apparently one of those shocking moments prompted IShowSpeed to start thrusting.

After yelling, IShowSpeed exclaimed: “Chica, I miss you. I’m about to f— you, Chica. This d— up in you, baby.”

But IShowSpeed suddenly realized that his penis was not in his pants, causing him to show his junk to his young audience. He quickly sat down, seeming shocked as he said, “Oh my god.”

After flashing the world, IShowSpeed shut down the stream and hasn’t said anything about the incident ever since.

YouTube responds to IShowSpeed wardrobe malfunction

Fans of the loud and chaotic YouTuber became worried that IShowSpeed would be banned for showing his semi-hard junk during a livestream. The streaming platform’s guidelines state that “unclothed genitals” are not allowed.

It looks like fans don’t have to worry, however. TMZ reported that YouTube was not planning to ban the streamer despite violating the policies. This is a huge relief for fans since IShowSpeed is already permanently banned from Twitch for sexist behavior.

The streaming community found YouTube’s decision a bit surprising. Even Kaitlyn “Amouranth” Siragusa and Natalia “Alinity” Mogollon were punished for accidental flashing, although the bans were just a few days.

It was even more surprising since many speculated that IShowSpeed had done it on purpose. How would his semi-erect member somehow slip out of the hole in his pajama bottoms? Other inappropriate conversations revolved around the size of his meat and wondering if he was truly turned on by Chica.

Either way, it seems IShowSpeed is in the clear this time around.
