People were horrified when an Australian gaming streamer was recorded allegedly assaulting his pregnant wife off-screen while live streaming on 9 December 2018.

Luke Munday, known online as MrDeadMoth, has now returned to the online streaming platform Twitch, prompting intense online backlash.

The initial incident occurred when an argument between Munday and his wife became heated after she repeatedly requested he get off the computer.

He was seen leaving the frame of his livestream and the argument continued off screen, where his wife could be heard crying and screaming as Munday yelled verbal abuse.

West Tigers player charged with Bondi assault

West Tigers player charged with Bondi assault NRL player Michael Chee Kam is one of two men charged with assaulting an Uber driver at Bondi Beach over the weekend. Chee Kam, along with an 18-year-old-man, allegedly assaulted a 26-year-old Uber driver on Campbell Parade in Bondi around 10.30pm on Saturday December 30. It is alleged the two men punched the driver repeatedly through the car window. Local police in the area were flagged down after the incident and a short time later a taxi containing Chee Kam and the 18-year-old was stopped.

The alleged attack occurred while his wife was pregnant, and in the presence of their two young daughters.

Viewers of the livestream called police and Munday was later charged with common assault.

However, on 30 December Munday was back playing Fortnite on the streaming platform, prompting outrage from those who had witnessed and heard of the alleged assault.

Any users who mentioned the attack were blocked from his stream or prevented from entering the chat, however Munday couldn’t control the backlash on sites like Twitter.

There people began calling out Twitch for failing to permanently ban Munday’s channel on the site, as well as criticising him for “milking” the situation for all it’s worth.

One commenter suggested Munday’s choice to set his stream to only allow comments from followers of his account was a ploy to boost his follower numbers, even if it meant the people commenting him were calling him out for his behaviour – at which point he would block them from chatting.

The court case is ongoing, however court documents have stated that the prosecution has a strong case due to just how many online witnesses there were.
