Twitch streamer Luke ‘MrDeadMoth’ Munday, who has been charged with attacking his pregnant wife while playing Fortnite, was back streaming on the platform on December 30, prompting angry responses online.

On December 9, 2018 MrDeadMoth was playing Fortnite on his channel when he and his wife began arguing. 

After the argument became heated, Munday stopped playing, moved away from the camera and his wife could be heard screaming on the stream.

Following the incident, Munday, 26, was arrested and charged with common assault. He appeared in court on December 13, where the case was adjourned until January 10 to allow Mr Munday to receive adequate legal advice.

The court documents stated that the prosecution has a strong case because “there are numerous independent witnesses to the offence as a portion of the incident was livestreamed”.

Despite this, MrDeadMoth was back streaming Fortnite on Twitch on December 30. Users in his chat who referenced the December 9 incident were banned or timed out from chatting.

His return to the platform has received backlash online, as Twitter users called out Twitch for not permanently banning the streamer’s channel.

Munday has been granted permission to miss his next court date, while police have reportedly applied for an apprehended violence order.

This is an Order made by an Australian court “against a person who makes you fear for your safety, to protect you from further violence, intimidation or harassment.”

Police confirmed that there were two young girls, aged 20 months and three-years-old, in the home at the time of the December 9 incident, who can also be heard in the livestream clip.

James Charles sparks heated beef with rapper Asian Doll over makeup artist fees

YouTube star and makeup mogul James Charles has started some unexpected beef with rapper Asian Doll after she made a divisive tweet over the price some makeup artists charge for their work.

James Charles is known for getting into the occasional Twitter spat with high-profile celebrities; in August 2020, the YouTuber called out music artist Alicia Keys for her then-unreleased skincare line, which he mistakenly interpreted as another celebrity cash-grab in the makeup biz. (This was not the case.)

Now, it seems that Charles has struck up a feud with none other than Dallas-based rapper Asian Doll — the first female rapper to be signed to Gucci Mane’s very own record label, 1017 Eskimo Records.

It all started over a post Asian Doll made on January 15, where she took issue with makeup artists charging hefty fees for their services.

“If you charge over $150 to do a face of makeup, you can go to hell, respectfully,” she wrote.

Charles was quick to clap back: “What a stupid tweet. One foundation can cost $50, artists have to buy EVERY SHADE for their kit, & thats just the first step…Either pay an artist’s rate for their time & skill, do it yourself, OR get it done at a counter and risk looking busted.”

It seems that Charles’ reply has sparked an avalanche of backlash against him from Asian Doll’s fans, with many accusing him of overstepping his bounds.

Charles has apparently messed with the wrong rapper, as Asian Doll was also quick to fire shots at the beauty guru in a series of additional tweets.

“What a dumb a** to be in my business replying to something that has absolutely nothing to do with you. I’m having a debate about HOOD PRICES baby, stay over there in HOLLYWOOD where they having you looking GHOST,” she wrote — most likely referring to the infamous photo of James Charles wearing foundation several shades lighter than his natural skin tone.

“Literally stop robbing the poor,” the rapper added in a now-deleted reply. “All I’m saying is people shouldn’t have to pay over $150 for a face, DATS IT!”

It seems that Asian Doll’s post has stirred up quite the debate regarding the value and pricing of makeup artists’ time and work in her comments section — but James’ involvement in the conversation has sparked another kind of conversation, altogether.
