Kai Cenat has accused Steven “Dream” Bonnell of being racist after the political streamer made some questionable comments about Darren “IShowSpeed” Watkins Jr. for his latest controversy.

The majority of the streaming community has condemned IShowSpeed after he made some racist comments towards a Chinese fan in the World Cup stands. With the latest of IShowSpeed’s many blunders and questionable behavior, it’s no surprise that many content creators are fed up with the young streamer at this point. But Cenat had something to say about the way Dream discussed the recent situation.

On December 6, Destiny reacted to the now viral clip of IShowSpeed being racist. But instead of discussing IShowSpeed’s behavior, Dream aimed at black content creators.

“Is this the Kai Cenat guy? Oh, this is the Speed guy,” Destiny started, attempting to prove that both streamers were similar. “Okay, there’s, like, this whole new legion of, like, black zoomer streamers.”

Destiny went on to say that this particular group of streamers largely just “scream at the camera,” adding that there doesn’t seem to be much variety in their content.

Kai Cenat was eventually informed of Destiny’s comments and decided to react during his own livestream. After listening to what Destiny had to say, he paused the clip and accused Dream of not knowing a lot about Cenat and other younger streamers since he claimed he wasn’t sure what other content they did.

“Do your f—ing research, b—,” Cenat said.

To Cenat, it seemed like Destiny was hating on a certain group of content creators without knowing much about them. This made him come to the conclusion that there may be a reason Destiny was hating on them.

“Clearly you are a racist,” Cenat concluded. “But guess what? I don’t give a f—. That’s you. That’s something to do with you. I’d be mad if I was a racist and black n—s got motion right now. I’d be furious, n—.”

Cenat, IShowSpeed, and other black content creators have been blowing up over the past few months. Despite his many controversies, IShowSpeed won Breakout Streamer at the Streamies a few days ago. Cenat has over 2.4 million followers on Twitch and is one of the most-subbed content creators of all time.

Destiny hasn’t made any response as of yet.
