IShowSpeed had a shocking moment during today’s FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United. Speed was among several celebrities who had come to witness the Manchester Derby final at the iconic Wembley Stadium. Former Manchester United star David Beckham and his son Brooklyn were also present at the stadium.
While IShowSpeed was watching and making a vlog during the match, he was shockingly attacked by one of the supporters inside the stadium. Speed was visibly stunned by the person’s rude and violent behavior. However, the attacker faced instant karma as Speed’s bodyguard got hold of the attacker and pinned him down. Speed, still taken aback, asked, “What? Bro, what did you just do? Why did he just f*cking punch me, bro?”

“Why did he put his hands on me? I didn’t even touch him!” The clip also showed Speed’s bodyguards talking with the attacker and trying to bring the situation under control. The attacker probably was a Manchester City supporter who attacked Speed for his loyalty toward Manchester United.
IShowSpeed remains loyal to Manchester United even after Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure
While IShowSpeed isn’t a self-proclaimed Manchester United fan, he did start supporting the club for Cristiano Ronaldo. Speed, who is one of the biggest Ronaldo fans in the world, often goes out of his way to show his love for the Portuguese star. Although Ronaldo left the club in November last year, Speed still has a soft corner for The Red Devils.
IShowSpeed traveled from the USA to Manchester to watch Cristiano Ronaldo in action against Aston Villa in a Carabao Cup match. However, unfortunately for Speed, the former Manchester United star was not included in the squad for that match. Ronaldo’s exclusion left Speed heartbroken. He also shared his disappointment on Twitter when it was announced that Ronaldo was leaving United.

The 18-year-old YouTuber also trolled FC Barcelona following their Europa League loss against Manchester United a few months ago. Speed made a rather controversial tweet trolling the Spanish club which indicated his loyalty to Manchester United even months after Ronaldo’s departure.
