Flagrant 2 podcast host Andrew Schulz shared his thoughts on the recent IShowSpeed drama and said it’s unfortunate that Speed doesn’t have a mentor to keep him out of trouble while it goes viral.
IShowSpeed, 17, has broken YouTube records throughout his career, gaining over half a million subscribers on the platform in just one week in 2021. This meteoric rise was not without controversy, however.
Just recently, a clip of Speed making “sexist” comments went viral on social media, prompting Riot to ban his account from all of their games. Shortly after, he posted an apology video.
Flagrant 2 co-host Andrew Schulz has explained his thoughts on the recent controversy, saying it was “regrettable” that Speed didn’t have a mentor.
Andrew Schulz “feels bad” for IShowSpeed
During an April 12 episode of Flagrant 2, Schulz and his co-host Akaash Singh brought up Speed’s recent controversy when it went viral on Twitter just days before. The duo agreed that what Speed said was “insane,” but Andrew went into his thoughts.
Schulz explained, “At 17 you don’t think about the rest of your life … He probably makes millions of dollars, and he made those millions of dollars by saying the wildest shit he could think of.”
One of the other crew members mentioned that it’s hard to tell whether or not Speed is joking with his comments, and that the YouTuber is walking a fine line.
“I just feel bad that it’s obvious that he doesn’t have anyone in his corner to give him ‘game’,” Schulz continued. “It’s just unfortunate … it’s one of those things that makes me sad. He needs a mentor who’ll tell him, ‘If you say those things, you’ll get canceled.'”
(Topic starts at 2:27 in the video)
Andrew Schulz’s comments are similar to those of popular Twitch streamer Asmongold, who on April 7 slammed critics calling for Speed to be banned.
Speeds apologized for his comments and mentioned that he will keep growing and getting better. We’ll have to wait and see what the future brings.
