The Fortnite livestreamer known as Mr. Dead Moth hit the headlines late last year after he allegedly assaulted his wife while recording.
Thousands of viewers witnessed 26-year-old Luke Munday assaulting his wife, and he was arrested and charged. His channel then appeared to have been suspended following this incident.
The event became worldwide news due to the stream’s highly disturbing content, but it seems it’s not the end of Mr. Dead Moth.
Mr. Dead Moth resurfaced just after the holiday period, announcing his return on Twitter. Naturally, people are not impressed with the move.

You should not be allowed on twitch, or online for that matter. Disgusting.

The hammer has fallen hard on streaming platform Twitch, with many people contacting the service to express their disgust at the reinstatement of the channel.
On Twitter, one angry user writes: “Dear @twitch/@TwitchSupport ,
“Mrdeadmoth, the garbage human that beat his wife during a live stream has been unbanned on twitch. We seen the viral video of him hurting her.
“You’ve perma banned for way less. I think this is un acceptable from every angle… this has to be a joke.”

Another user branded the move from Twitch as “abhorrent.”
@Twitch MrDeadMoth needs to be permanently banned. Your decision is abhorrent. You’re view on domestic violence needs to be shown in this situation. It was a horrible scene to watch!

At the time of writing, neither Twitch nor Mr. Dead Moth have commented on the unbanning of his channel.
