The Twitch community has called for Fortnite streamer MrDeadMoth to be permanently banned from Twitch after he had been charged with assaulting his wife in early December.

Twitch streamer Luke "MrDeadMoth" Munday was banned from the popular streaming platform in early December after footage of himself allegedly assaulting his wife was captured when MrDeadMoth was streaming the battle royale title of Fortnite. However, MrDeadMoth returned to streaming Fortnite back on Twitch on Wednesday, December 30th and prompted members of the community to criticize Twitch for allowing MrDeadMoth to return to streaming and not banning him permanently from the platform. 

MrDeadMoth Returns to Twitch, Community Responds

Many members of the Twitch community took to Twitter to vent their frustrations over seeing that MrDeadMoth had been allowed to return to streaming on Twitch after being charged with a crime that many believe warranted a permanent ban for the streamer. 

According to a report by Dexerto, Viewers who commented or referenced the assault assault that Munday has been charged with against his wife were timed out from chatting or banned outright from his channel. 

The Twitch streamer appeared in court for the first time on December 13th after being charged with the crime of common assault against his wife. The case was then adjourned until the date of Thursday, January 10th in order for MrDeadMoth to be able to receive proper legal advice regarding the court case in question. 

According to a report by news.com.au, court documents state that the December incident is not the first time that MrDeadMoth has been charged with the crime of common assault, as the "accused has been charged on two previous occasions in 2011 for malicious damage and common assault, both of which were not domestic related." Court document also stated that the prosecution charging Mr DeadMoth with common assault has a very strong case as "there are numerous independent witnesses to the offence as a portion of the incident was livestreamed."
