Cloud9 Smash pro Joseph ‘Mang0’ Marquez has made a defiant return to Twitch – following his ban on January 7 for passing out drunk on stream – by downing a full can of beer.

The popular streamer was given a seven day long suspension for ‘dangerous consumption of drugs and alcohol’, but the disciplinary action hasn’t deterred Marquez too much.

He admitted that he drank ‘a lot’ on the stream which eventually resulted in his suspension, but claims he had in fact only pretended to pass out as a joke.

Returning to Twitch on January 14, he kicked things off with a light beer can shotgun, before explaining that he was, and will continue, “just being myself”.

Twitch will no doubt be keeping a closer eye on Mang0 from now on, but he has said that he would rather not stream on the platform at all than be “fake”.

“If [Twitch] want to ban me, for being myself – yeah, I like to get a little stupid, I like to get fucked up – but if I can’t be myself, then what’s the point?”, the two-time Evo champion explained. 

“Then I’m no better than any other fake streamer on this site. 99% of streamers on this site are fake as shit. […] I’d rather be myself, and never be allowed to stream on this site again.”

He later did an alcoholism test on stream too, answering questions relating to possible symptoms and consequences of drinking too much.

The test concluded that Mang0 was at “high risk” and should “consult a medical professional immediately.” It didn’t appear that he planned to heed the warning.

Thomas Petrou slams Bryce Hall’s accusations of stealing from Hype House

TikTok stars Thomas Petrou and Bryce Hall have sparked quite the feud after Hall accused Petrou — co-founder of the Hype House — of stealing money from his own content creators.

It’s no secret that the Hype House and the Sway House aren’t on friendly terms, with the two getting into a fierce beef throughout this past year (remember that time the Sway boys drove to the Hype House to confront Chase Hudson?).

While Hall has confirmed that their feud with the Hype House is definitely real, it seems that he’s going “full send” on his distaste for the group by accusing co-founder Thomas Petrou of outright stealing money from the HH’s content creators.

During an interview with Tom Ward on October 8, Hall made some serious claims about Petrou’s business practices, stating that he’d “stolen” money from the TikTokers working underneath the content collective.

“I’ll say it — he steals money,” Hall stated. “He steals money from those kids. These kids are — I love a lot of people in the Hype House, but they are not the smartest people. …maybe not now, because I haven’t talked to them in four or five months, and maybe somebody said something to him, but he, at the beginning, was stealing money for sure.”

Hall’s claims didn’t go unnoticed; Petrou responded to the accusations shortly thereafter, denying having ever stolen money from those in the Hype House in a pointed Instagram reply on a tea page.

“That’s a complete lie,” he wrote. “I’ve never taken a percentage of anyone in the Hype House. Ask everyone who’s a part of it. The whole reason I started this was to help the people around me make sure they weren’t getting taken advantage of by their managers and agents.”

Thomas Petrou denies Bryce Hall's allegations of stealing money from Hype House creators.

This isn’t the first time Hall has struck out at Petrou in recent days, either; the Sway House TikToker also slammed Thomas’s spending habits, claiming that he “spends his money like an idiot” on pricey cars instead of saving up wisely.

For now, it doesn’t look like there’s any love lost between these two social media stars as things continue to escalate between two of TikTok’s biggest creators.
