There have been a lot of bans on Twitch lately for egregious actions, from streamers assaulting others to performing explicit sexual acts. But, professional Smash player Joseph “Mango” Marquez was banned for something else entirely. Last night he was celebrating after the Philadelphia Eagles narrowly defeated the Chicago Bears in the NFL Wild Card game—albeit a little too much.
Mango, who plays for Cloud9, apparently passed out on stream after drinking too much. Right before Mango fell from his chair and off camera, he raised a bottle in the air with Post Malone’s “White Iverson” playing in the background. Mango remained off camera for a few minutes before returning and shutting down the stream.
After Mango ended his stream, his channel was banned by Twitch. The ban is for seven days, according to a tweet by Mango. He has streamed while intoxicated in the past, but hasn’t received a ban for it previously. Cloud9 hasn’t issued a statement regarding the incident at the time of publication.
Mango is largely regarded as one of the best Super Smash Bros. Melee players and mains Falco. Most recently, he was placed sixth on the Melee Panda Global Rankings 2018 Summer rankings. The ranking places the top 100 active Smash players based off votes from tournament organizers, commentators, and other individuals. Mango’s other notable accomplishments include winning Royal Flush 2017 and Super Smash Con 2017.
