Fortnite Streamer Arrested After Allegedly Abusing His Partner During Livestream


WARNING: Upsetting content follows

A streamer, who goes by the name of MrDeadMoth, has been arrested following alleged abuse during a Fortnite livestream.

Clips of the incident have gone viral, circulating on social media and resulting in the arrest of the 26-year-old gamer.

In the deeply upsetting clip, you can hear MrDeadMoth getting increasingly agitated with his partner for talking to him during his stream, before leaving his chair and approaching her, which is when the alleged abuse occurs.

As well as the alleged physical abuse, the streamer can be heard hurling verbal abuse at the woman before attacking her.

You can hear his partner crying after the events occur as well as the cries of children, two of which were in the house at the time, according to the BBC.

This was streamed live on Twitch this Sunday past, with the arrest occurring soon after in New South Wales. He has since been released on conditional bail and is set to appear in court.
