On April 23, 2023, YouTube star Darren "IShowSpeed" took to his channel to host an IRL stream. However, he landed himself in hot water during the broadcast when he asked a restaurant waitress whether she would "reproduce with him" if they were the last two people on Earth.

The waitress was taken aback by the question and said she wouldn't do it. After a few seconds of silence, the streamer remarked:

"Who's... going to stop me? Huh? Nah, never mind."

This is not the first time IShowSpeed has asked this question in a livestream. On December 12, 2021, the streamer appeared as a guest on Adin Ross' popular e-dating show, alongside TikTok personality Ashaley "Ash Kash." As they conversed, the former asked the latter a "psychological question," inquiring if she would "reproduce" with him if they were the last two people on Earth.

When Ash Kash said no, IShowSpeed started raging and asked her who would "stop him." This incident resulted in the content creator getting indefinitely banned from Twitch.
