Today we have some pretty strange news to share with you from a Super Smash Bros. Melee tournament that took place last week.
According to reports, someone threw a dead crab at competitive player HungryBox after he won a bracket reset match against Mango. The intention behind the crab thrower isn’t known, but some believe Melee players are petty over certain characters that they start hating the players who use them too often.
Footage of the crab throwing below:

Thankfully, the event organizers have identified the person who threw the crab and they have been blacklisted from future events.
The person who threw the crab has been identified and he will not be welcome at any future events that I'm TOing. Really unfortunate that such a good top-8 was marred by this incident.
