Sky Sports will reportedly not collaborate with YouTube sensation IShowSpeed ​​after his previous misogynistic comments surfaced.

The American, who has more than 13 million subscribers, has gained popularity for his live broadcasts of games and entertainment, including FIFA.

YouTuber named Darren Watkins Jr attended both Manchester United games this week hoping to catch a glimpse of his favorite player, Cristiano Ronaldo.

He watched United’s 4-2 win over Aston Villa in the Carabao Cup and then also attended the 2-1 win over Fulham at Craven Cottage on Sunday, although Ronaldo was absent for both games.

Speed, who also has 10.5 million followers on TikTok, appeared on Sky Sports’ broadcast of United’s game against Fulham.

The streamer appeared in a segment with well-known host Geoff Shreeves, as he announced team news, which they later posted on YouTube and Twitter.

It has since emerged that IShowSpeed ​​has been caught making misogynistic and derogatory comments about women on his online broadcasts, according to The Athletic.

Therefore, Sky Sports made the decision to remove all content, including the YouTube star, from its social media channels and websites.

The broadcaster has also decided that it will not feature IShowSpeed ​​in the future.

The streamer appeared in a segment with well-known presenter Geoff Shreeves in Fulham.

The original video revealed the moment he found out that his idol Ronaldo was also not involved at Craven Cottage, while visiting Sky Football pundits at the stadium.

When told Ronaldo wasn’t playing and hadn’t even traveled to London with the team, Speed, the 17-year-old soccer athlete, whose real name is Darren Watkins Jr, looked distraught.

He said ‘I don’t understand. I traveled all the way from the United States, all the way, just to see this guy. Nope!’

A second video showed Speed ​​in the tunnel, mispronouncing several Fulham player names, under the guidance of Sky Sports reporting legend Geoff Shreeves.

He was corrected for the way he stated Cottagers’ names as Willian and former Man United player Andreas Pereira, but was praised for bringing Carlos Vinicius and Bobby Decordova-Reid close enough to their correct names.

Neither video is available to watch on Sky Sports after the latest news broke.

Sportsmail has asked IShowSpeed ​​for comment.
