The King of Kong aka Billy Mitchell was accused of cheating recently and last week Twin Galaxies decided to remove all of his submissions from their site. Following this, Guinness World Records also wiped all of Billy Mitchell’s scores from their records. For the most part Billy Mitchell has remained quiet on these recent events until he was interviewed at the Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee.
You can watch the full video but here is a transcript of his message:
“We will show that everything that has been done, everything was done professionally, according to the rules, according to the scoreboard, the integrity that was set up. Not 2014 forward by the current regime, who wants to reach back 35 years.
Everything will be transparent, everything will be available, I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. But its taken a considerable amount of time, witnesses, documents, everything, everything will be made available to you, nothing will be withheld.”
As a fan of the King of Kong, I hope there is evidence that proves otherwise. If the evidence presented is sufficient, accurate and not a witch hunt against Mitchell then let’s call it as it stands, but if there is any doubt, any holes in the accusations then I would hope he can be reinstated into Twin Galaxies and Guinness World Records.
