Being “MrsDeadMoth” is worse than it sounds.
An Australian “Fortnite” player known as “MrDeadMoth” got himself in some real-life hot water when he refused to give up the game controller and come to the table after his wife rang the dinner bell.
As his Fortnite livestream continued rolling on the streaming platform Twitch, Luke Munday, 26, allegedly assaulted his wife just off camera — with his two toddler daughters at home — as other gamers experienced the domestic horror in real time.
Munday barked at his 21-year-old wife to go away as she approached him while he played the popular online game Sunday evening, the video shows.
“I’ll be out soon,” Munday insisted, becoming increasingly agitated. “Just wait!”
His wife, whom he calls Grace throughout the video, apparently flung a cardboard box at him, and he’s seen tossing it back.
“Can you not?” Munday yelled. “I said I’ll be out soon.”
“No computer,” Grace responded. “I’m sick of this s–t.”
She’s heard crying before announcing, “You hear that, all those people there,” to those listening on the livestream, which quickly went viral on Twitter.
“I cooked him dinner an hour ago and he refuses to eat it,” she added, clearly distraught, before asking him to apologize.
He said he would later.
“No, you say sorry now,” she pleaded, before Munday jumped out of his chair a second time.
Later, his wife can be heard screaming “no gaming anymore!”
“F–k off, you dog, you don’t pay the f–king bills,” Munday snapped.
He soon leaves the computer again, as children can be heard crying and screaming, “Daddy!” in the background.
Cops confirmed that two girls, ages 3 and 20 months, were home at the time, according to 10 News Daily.
Horrified online viewers managed to hack Munday’s account to gather his information before handing it over to local cops.
“That’s a natural thing for people to do,” the alleged victim’s mother, who declined to give her name, told 10 News First.
“They’re a part of our community and they’re standing up for woman and children’s right and I have a lot of gratitude for these people.”
Police in Camden, western Sydney, arrested Munday at around 11:30 p.m., News.com.au reported.
He was charged with common assault and granted conditional bail, according to the report. He’s set to appear in Camden Local Court Thursday.
Munday is a network implementation engineer at Telstra, one of the largest telecommunications companies in Australia, according to the company’s website.
