If you haven’t watched it – don’t.
A 26-year-old engineer sits at his computer, live-streaming his game of Fortnite (an online video game).
In the bottom left hand corner of the screen, you can see him. Floppy brown hair, headset on, the only backdrop a white, bare wall.
His partner appears to ask for him, before he begins: “Can you not? I’ll be out soon.”
We spoke about the Fortnite assault on this weeks episode of Mamamia Out Loud, the podcast with what women are talking about. Post continues below.
And it only gets worse from there.
He can be heard screaming at her, “f*ck off you dog” and “I’m sick of this sh*t” reminding her that she doesn’t “pay the f*cking bills”.
She can be heard screaming; the kind of scream you don’t want to hear too many times in your lifetime.
The fight allegedly becomes violent, as we hear the sounds of slaps and frightened yells off camera.
A baby is babbling.
A mother is shrieking.
A father is shouting.
The sounds of violence offer a stark contrast to the animated, upbeat song playing in the background of Fortnite – providing a bizarre escape every time the 26-year-old puts his headset back on.
But two things happened on Fortnite that Sunday.
The first, is that a man was so shameless about his violent behaviour towards his partner, that he did not even bother to turn his camera off during the alleged attack.
