Manchester City fan PUNCHES YouTuber IShowSpeed during the FA Cup final at Wembley… leaving the internet star stunned by the bizarre attack before security intervene
A Manchester City supporter was seen punching YouTuber IShowSpeed during the FA Cup final on Saturday.
The internet star was in attendance for Wembley’s clash between City and United and had been livestreaming himself watching the match from the stands.
All had been going well until, midway through the first-half, a City supporter appeared to punch the streamer during his broadcast.
The incident, which later appeared on Twitter, occurred during the water break in the 26th minute of the match, with both teams seen in their respective huddles in the background.
As the YouTuber was addressing his camera, he is suddenly jolted backwards before turning to the man off camera and asking: ‘What the f***?’.

His personal security quickly intervened to apprehend the man after the attack on Saturday
Almost immediately, IShowSpeed’s security launched forward and grabbed the City fan, who fell backwards onto the Wembley seating.
As the two individuals squabbled off camera, the internet star could be heard asking his cameraman and other supporters: ‘Why’d he just f****** punch me bro? Why’d he put his hands on me bro? I didn’t even touch him!’.
By the end of the clip, the man had returned to his feet whilst being restrained by security and other fans in attendance.
It’s unclear what caused the City fan to act as he did, during the water-break for the two teams in the first-half.
The match, at that point, was in City’s favour thanks to Ilkay Gundogan’s record breaking goal in the first 12 seconds of the match.
The popular internet personality has built a reputation from streaming at big football matches and famously flew over from the US to watch Cristiano Ronaldo play for United against Aston Villa, only for the forward to miss out due to illness.
Reacting to Ronaldo’s omission, Speed tweeted: ‘I’m crying right now, I flew all the way to Manchester to see Ronaldo and he’s not playing.’
Speed even turned up to Old Trafford with the number 7 shirt, the jersey worn by Ronaldo.
