Smash Pro Suspended from Twitch After Drunkenly Celebrating Eagles Win
The Cubs and the Beers.
How can you not love playoff football? Despite the various political and medical controversies that surround the sport, it’s hard to not fall in love with football’s winner-take-all playoff style. This excitement is only heightened when your team is the reigning Super Bowl champion; a champion that was, in almost every regard, an underdog.
Enter Mang0, a professional Super Smash Bros. player and a member of the esports team Cloud9. In addition to being a back-to-back Super Smash Bros. Melee EVO champion, Mang0 is also a diehard Philadelphia Eagles fan. Late last night, after the Eagles beat the Chicago Bears in 16-15 nailbiter, Mang0 decided to celebrate with some beers on stream. Suffice it to say, he may have overindulged a bit.
As seen in the above video (courtesy of YouTube channel Twitch Fails), Mang0 fell off of his chair while holding a beer on Twitch. Despite ending the stream shortly thereafter, Mang0 (according to a tweet on his Twitter account) received a week-long suspension from Twitch for “Dangerous consumption of drugs or alcohol.”
Mang0 laughed off his Twitch suspension, however, maintains that he didn’t actually pass out. “For the record.. I didn’t pass out on stream..,” Mang0 tweeted a couple of hours after sharing his suspension. “I jokingly fell over to be funny because I wanted to take a break.. Went downstairs to talk to my gf and came back and ended my stream.”
Last tweet about this ( for now )

Whether or not Mang0 actually passed out on stream, his behavior likely did break Twitch’s Community Guidelines. According to Twitch’s website, the platform does not allow “illegal or dangerous consumption of alcohol.” While nobody can accurately measure how much alcohol Mang0 consumed (and thus, whether or not it was “dangerous”), they can probably take him at his own word. A few hours before Mang0’s stream (after the Eagles won), Mang0 tweeted, ” DRUNK DECEMBER continues / TILL THE EAGLES LOSE / STAY GETTING DRUNK.”
DRUNK DECEMBER continues
TILL THE EAGLES LOSE
STAY GETTING DRUNK
