Billy Mitchell Tweets About Steve Wiebe's Failed World-Record Attempt

UPDATE: According to Walter Day from Twin Galaxies, Billy Mitchell does not actually have a Twitter account, and someone maliciously posted this tweet using a fake Twitter account. Gotta love the internets sometimes. Maybe Billy isn't so bad after all? Personally, I actually got to meet Billy in person a few years ago and he was actually pretty cool. So there, haters. Cut the guy some slack.

The original story is as follows:

Thanks to G4's Twitter tracking, we were able to pick up on this little gem posted by gaming legend (and legendary smarm-fest) Billy Mitchell just a day after Steve Wiebe failed to break Mitchell's Donkey Kong world-record score live on G4tv.com during E3 2009.

Despite three-and-a-half valiant efforts (one was cut short by a power outage), Wiebe ended up around 60,000 points shy of the record when it was all said and done. It was quite a show as anyone who watched the live stream can attest. And we can all thank Mr. Mitchell for properly tainting the event like only he could/would by Tweeting the following:

"The day after #Wiebe could not pull it off feels even better. His three pathetic attempts at breaking MY [notice the capital letters used here to emphasize Mitchell's ownership] world record were almost honorable."

If I weren't so enchanted by your flowing brown mane and classless sub-par looks, I'd almost say I was disgusted with your remarks, sir. Fortunately for you, that's not the case.

On that note, how do you rate Mitchell's comments on the sore loser scale, with Steve Wiebe being the lowest and Billy Mitchell being the highest?
