    The heated argument, which inadvertently went public, has prompted a storm on social media. While some claim that the woman was aggravating the Fortnite gamer from Sydney, others slammed the reported abuser and his advocates.

    The 26-year-old gamer, who was arrested at home after he live-streamed an assumed attack on his pregnant partner in front of their two young children, has branded the incident as a “one-off” and abstained from apologising. The argument happened when the woman tried to get Luke Munday off the computer screen to have dinner. After a heated exchange, he was seen to get up and walk off, and then the woman was heard screaming while the children were apparently crying.

    “I hope all of you people know that I'm pregnant and he just bashed me”, she was heard to say while the gamer screamed, “F*** off you dog, you don't pay the bills”.

    A witness reported the incident to police, and three hours later the suspected abuser was detained.

    The gamer, placed on conditional bail, is to face court on 13 December. Munday, who is an engineer at telecommunications giant Telstra, was suspended, while his accounts at Fortnite were shut down. Munday told The Daily Telegraph that people “don't see what happens, don't actually know what happened off camera”.

    “The court will decide what happens, they have the evidence, they have her statement and they have my statement, and they match. There's no issue there… Everyone thinks I kicked the s**t out of her which clearly isn't the case”, he said.

    The incident prompted a wave of outrage online. Many slammed the alleged abuser and those trying to somehow explain his behaviour.

    ​Others scrutinized the man suggesting he has mental problems.
