While some Twitch channels are showcasing the very best moral practices this week (Awesome Games Done Quick has just started a week-long charity event for a fantastic cause), others are showcasing a, shall we say, less-than-perfect display, adding to a worryingly growing list of high-profile bans on the service.
Professional Super Smash Bros. player Joseph “Mang0” Marquez, known for being a top Smash Bros. Melee player and a back-to-back EVO champion, has received a week-long suspension from the live-streaming site after celebrating a win for his NFL team, the Philadelphia Eagles. The problem was that he perhaps celebrated a little too much; the clip below captured the moment when Mang0 "passes out" from supposedly drinking too much alcohol.
After the events seen in the clip above, Mang0 reportedly remained off camera for several minutes before returning to shut it down. As you can see in the tweet below, Twitch says that the reason for this one-week ban is for the "dangerous consumption of drugs or alcohol", which goes against the site's policies.
A couple of hours after posting the tweet above (in which Mang0 didn't seem too concerned about the ban), he posted another message to explain his side of the story. He says that rather than being too drunk, he actually "jokingly fell over to be funny" and took a break to talk to his girlfriend.
As always, feel free to share your thoughts on this one in the comments below.
