Popular YouTuber IShowSpeed has revealed that he has been blocked by football legend Lionel Messi on Instagram. The streamer shared the news during his live stream on April 30, 2023, and demonstrated how he could not follow or message Messi from his primary account. However, he was able to access the footballer’s profile using his alternate account.
IShowSpeed believed that it was “understandable” why Messi would block him and even showed his audience that he could connect with other prominent sporting figures like Virat Kohli and Vinícius Júnior. He also claimed that Messi must have viewed his profile before restricting his access to his account.
Fans of IShowSpeed weighed in on the revelation, with over 185 comments on the streamer’s clip. It remains unclear why Messi blocked IShowSpeed, but it is not uncommon for public figures to limit their social media interactions.
IShowSpeed is known for his YouTube channel, which has over 16.5 million subscribers. He recently collaborated with Kai Cenat to release a song called “Dogs.”
Overall, IShowSpeed’s announcement has generated buzz on social media, with fans speculating on the reason behind Messi’s decision to block him. Regardless of the reason, it appears that the popular streamer is taking the situation in stride.
