    Fortnite streamer “MrDeadMoth” has allegedly been arrested and charged by police for slapping and attacking his wife, whose crying and screaming was overheard by viewers during a disturbing live broadcast. While he could have just paused the game and sat down for dinner, MrDeadMoth decided to engage in domestic violence instead. Fortnite is a new form of heroin, they say.

    “Can you not? I said I’ll be out soon,” MrDeadMoth says in the clip, before throwing down his keyboard and appearing to slap her off screen. "Don’t hit me in the face,” she says as their child begins to cry. “How many times do I have to tell you guys, I’ll be out soon,” MrDeadMoth says. The clips then descend into more screams and confusion, with his wife saying that she had cooked dinner an hour ago.

    What the hell is wrong with people? I'm a 40 year old gamer and seeing people like him behave like a man child is part of the bad outlook that society has on gamers. Ungrateful fuck. Go eat your cooked meal.

    Saw the clip on Reddit shortly after it happened. Glad to hear he’ll be reaping the consequences of his actions.

    Gaming can be an addiction. Anyone that played WOW long enough can tell you that much.

    What people will do to keep that constant fix has torn families apart. Especially with game designers creatively doing everything in their power to hook players.

    They're both idiots. Her for throwing things at him and hitting him first and the guy is a bigger idiot for hitting her so hard in retaliation.

    Well, now look at it this way. That kid now has a slim chance of being raised by a step-father that can teach him respect for the important things in life instead of having another shit-bag grow up just like this dude.

    There's always a bright side somewhere. He'll likely never even get another date after this as well. The evidence is up for the world to see, just by a single google name search. His ONLY future prospect is that computer. (If his wife doesn't get it in the divorce)

    She hit him first? I'm not about to watch the video. But if there's evidence of that, then he'll get these charges lowered for sure. Something like mutual combat or something similar. It's in front of a kid, so it's still a felony in most states. But the sentence won't have quite the punch it could have. If that's the case, he'll be out before Christmas.

    Fortnite is a garbage game for garbage people. Making something free to play has a way of bringing out the riffraff of society. Probably lots of overlap between Craigslist weirdos and Fortnite players.

    How the hell is (only) he arrested and charged for domestic violence when it is her being a psychotic bitch, attacking him first both verbaly and physically, and when he responds (and we have no idea with which severity) she starts screaming like she's the victim, but then starts attacking him again, clearly showing he did nothing to her that would make her afraid.

    But here comes the white knighting brigade defending this pathetic crazy bitch like he's the only unstable one there and solely in the wrong. Not once was he the inital attacker, he was always responding to her hitting him first or screaming at him, and he was the one constantly telling her to stop and trying to get out of the situation.

    And however shit Fortnite streaming is, by the sound of it he was "at work" being the only provider in that family.

    I learned to stay away from crazy bitches long ago. Unfortunately when men enable them, and stay in these abusive relationships, all the blame gets placed on the man when he finally cracks. Somehow I find it hard to stomach that years of verbal and psychological abuse are considered inconsequential to a slap in the face. It all comes down to the country you live in.

    I watched the one linked in the news article, you watched the brainwashed one from a fairy land where women are always and the only victims with no possibility of having agency of their own or responsibility for their actions, and a world where a woman can verbally and physically abuse a man with total immunity.

    where in that video did anything you say happen? she told him to come eat she cooked.....he got abusive?


    you know im not even going to bother arguing it cause clearly your making shit up.... but heres the end all be all...

    regardless of wether she came at him with a fuckin simi...should he in turn be abusive...physically or emotionally, especially infront of a child
    .. the only legal course of action is simply to get up and walk away....

    That crying baby in the background just utterly breaks my heart. How either of them can behave like that in front of their child is beyond comprehension to me.

    Ah, but we have to cut those parts out, they don't fit the narrative of an abusive white male.

    Take note how after every victim scream she comes right back, all calm and ready to hit/throw/yell yet again. He's a pussy who should control himself better and is no angel, but lets not pretend this was a one way street in any way.

    Likely never get another date after this? Lol are you claiming that women don't actively want to date a guy who will slap them around?

    He did walk away, multiple times, and begged her to leave him alone. I'm done talking to you since you're clearly not able to watch the video objectively.

    You have no idea if he hit her at all, so your white knighting falls flat. And IF he hit her, there is a whole spectrum between slapping her wrist and roundkicking her in the gut, and whatever he did do he should answer for it accordingly but so should she.

    And consider this hypothetical...how fit for motherhood is a woman who repeatedly attacks a man that is backing off but is hitting her back in retaliation?

    He was charged and obviously you were not watching the same video at least not with the sound on. also again zero fucks raise your hand to a woman you deserve to taken out back and put down like a dog.

    Fucked up indeed. And boy its really easy to tell who are the single males in this thread. Don't matter what a pregnant women does you dont fucking her. It's almost like the people defending him are part of the Proud Boys or something. Pathetic

    Now for his defense they should of both been charged with DV. But either way he should of never hit her period.

    Maybe if this piece of shit spent more time with her than playing a loser ass video game she wouldn't have to go to extremes for attention. (Not that its right to throw things at people, not defending her)

    No one is defending him, just pointing out two people tangoed there and both are responsible for their actions and should answer for them. And there is a difference between pointing out that we don't know if and how he hit her and claiming he didn't do anything.
