    26-year-old Twitch streamer MrDeathMoth (real name Luke James Munday), having recently been caught while streaming Fortnite allegedly assaulting his 21-year-old pregnant partner, has appeared in Australian court on charges of Common Assault.

    Pictured above at the time of the incident, after this various noises can be heard along with his partner exclaiming "Don’t hit me in the face".

    He was previously convicted of a different violent offence 7 years ago (not domestic related), and prosecution believes they have a strong case thanks to the "numerous independent witnesses to the offence as a portion of the incident was livestreamed”.


    The case has been adjourned to January 10th to give time for the defendant to get legal advice.

    While initially widely reported online that both him and his partner had been arrested, there is no confirmation of this and it looks unlikely at this time. Two girls aged three and 20 months were home at the time of the livestream.

    What do you think? Not much is actually known about this case other than the accused having a previous violent history, and only audio was captured of the alleged assault. As streaming becomes more mainstream, cases like these will inevitably continue - hopefully without silly accusations like 'he was playing a violent videogame' as I saw one headline read...

    I love how streamers are so fucking retarded that behaviour like this won't go unpunished as they are idiotic enough to broadcast it to the world.

    Honestly, if I were there I would of beaten the crap out of him for how he behaved.
    Im against anything but self defence or to step in to someone who can't defend themselves and I think squaring up to a female in front of his two daughters is reprehensible and he doesn't deserve to be around them.

    Does anybody read locations?
    I almost thougnt this was satire. Who’s this stupid to beat their pregnant wife in front of potentially thousands? They better not link the cause to the game though, getting tired of that sort of nonsense.

    The problem isn't just the stream, but his partner as well. Just listen to their freaking children screaming their lungs out. Must be very common place in that household. I would recommend they split up and the mother(?) takes the kids with her. She was 18 when she got her first child then, if it's hers.

    Today it is very hard to get the "real" thing. I'am not sure if the above video, and the story around, is real or fake.
    In the net you can do whatever you want and most people take it as real.
    As i've seen the above video (castrated talkgast) the first time ii was ashamed how dare the moderator was!
    But....on youtube you didn't get the whole think (trough the time i've seen it)

    Her is the real deal:

    "It's from a Belgian Comedy show called "In de Gloria", so the whole thing is staged. It's a 'mockumentary' about a fictious TV show host who got fired because of his inappropriate laughing at his guests, a woman who got paralyzed because of a surgeon accidentally cutting her spine, and a man who had a tonsillitis and got a bad treatment which resulted in a damage of his vocal cords. He didn't get castrated or "lost his balls" like some people claim. Anyways, the funniest thing I have seen in a while!"

    But the effect on me was as it was real.

    So i'am VERY careful today what i "buy" and what not ;)

    I'm pretty sure this is real. Why would you set this up? There's nothing to gain from it. And it's not like I'm now suddenly going to follow him or something.

    To the replies of he deserves violence for his actions. Treating violence with violence rarely works.

    A lot worse happens to many more everyday but no one cares but as it is vaguely related to video gaming people comment. That's probably more interesting / significant but less rant worthy.

    I couldn't even see one single minute of this video. It's hard for me to see that people like this live among us, and even play the same games we could have fun from.
    This guy don't deserve his wife, nor his childrend. God he doesn't even deserve the freedom to play videogames or even be in the internet.
    He just deserves prision. As long as he lives.

    Again people, view the video before taking a side. The wife actually begun throwing things on the streamer before he slapped her. None is right, but just say "he did wrong" isn't really correact here. Neiter is right, all is wrong.

    That's true yeah, I think that the article is incomplete in fact as it should say what happened on the both sides.

    This. If people were to actually view the video, it's not like he flew into a burst of rage for no reason, and started slapping the shit out of his wife. I'm not defending the guy by any means, but the wife isn't completely innocent. She antagonized him by throwing shit at him, after he told her to stop like 10 times.

    I think the most sad part of this entire thing, is that this all happened in front of a child.

    I agree, it was actually TWO children, a 3 year old and a 20 months old... unbelievable that these two might have conceived three times...

    I feel bad for the wife. Doesn't deserve to be slapped over a video game.

    Maybe the guy should put down fortnite and value his wife more than a game.
