Wrapped in controversy, Billy Mitchell released a statement today. Twin Galaxies and Guinness World Records pulled off his records for games like Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr and Pac-Man. Read the entire story to find out what happened.
In his statement, Billy states that he made his records in a professional manner, and not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits. He also mentions that he did everything – according to the rules and according to the scoreboard.
Here’s the complete statement –
“I’ve been asked to address things that are recently in the media. The fact of the matter is, now there’s a true professional due diligence being done to investigate things that happened as far as 35 years ago.
In a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits. 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 it’s taken a considerable amount of time. Witnesses, documents, everything will be made available to you.
Nothing will be withheld. You absolutely have my commitment to that. We’ve been at this since 1982, and it’s not gonna stop now.”
