Billy Mitchell, the ultra-hateable, mullet wearing villain from the documentary King of Kong: Fistful of Quarters has been stripped of his records and banned from competitive video game competitions over allegations that he cheated to obtain his Donkey Kong record.
Mitchell was the most memorable character of the documentary as the world record holding main rival to Steve Wiebe, an everyman teacher who purchases an old Donkey Kong machine to pursue the world record. Mitchell’s over inflated sense of self importance over his records and complete lack of awareness that he’s an all around giant D-bag are beyond what anyone could dream up in a Hollywood writers’ room.
Twin Galaxies, the largest tracker of video game records, announced that it will no longer recognize Mitchell as the first million point Donkey Kong record holder because his 1,047,200 score wasn’t achieved using the original arcade hardware. They believe Mitchell cheated by using non-original emulation software which gave him an unfair advantage.
As a result Twin Galaxies announced Mitchell will be stripped of all his records and banned from any further competition:
“Based on the complete body of evidence presented in this official dispute thread, Twin Galaxies administrative staff has unanimously decided to remove all of Billy Mitchell’s’ scores as well as ban him from participating in our competitive leaderboards.”
