Speed expressed embarrassment and frustration as the incident gained traction across social media platforms. Despite his plea for discretion, his own father later sang the phrase “I Show Meat” on a TikTok stream, referencing the meme inspired by Speed’s screen name and wardrobe incident.
In response to his father’s unexpected action, Speed initiated a candid Facetime conversation during a live broadcast on August 24. Viewers witnessed the exchange between the YouTuber and his father, as Speed confronted him about the seemingly mocking gesture.
Speed’s father promptly apologized for any offense caused, explaining that he had intended a different context. He clarified that the intent had been to divert attention from Speed and mitigate any negative impact on him.
“I’m sorry, man,” he said. “I didn’t mean it, dude. I didn’t mean it like that. You know, bro, they kept saying it on my Live. So I was like, ‘I Show,’ you know… I didn’t mean it like that. You know how I am, son.”
“I didn’t call you that, I was calling myself that!” he continued after Speed questioned him further. “If you go through the stream, you’ll see that I was calling myself that. I wasn’t calling you that. I was calling myself the originator! They’re just clipping out the wrong part. I was trying to take the heat off you. You’re my man!”
Though the conversation revealed initial doubts and confusion on Speed’s part, the father and son ultimately appeared to resolve their differences during the call. Their interaction concluded on a positive note, reaffirming their bond and understanding.
Notably, IShowSpeed managed to avoid repercussions on YouTube despite the incident. The platform recognized the occurrence as a mistake, acknowledging Speed’s swift removal of the broadcast and refraining from imposing any penalties.
