Malaysia: Man leaves pregnant wife, child to play PUBG freely
In the past few weeks, we reported how PUBG fever has gripped India, resulting in the Gujarat government, among others, banning the online multiplayer game as it adversely affects the students. In the latest development, a recent Facebook post revealed that a man in Malaysia reportedly left his four-month-pregnant wife and child so that he could play PUBG without any interference. Here's more.
Man was introduced to the game by his siblings
A Facebook post written in Malay went viral recently in which the wife revealed that her husband was first introduced to the game by his siblings and soon got addicted to it. His PUBG addiction caused disputes between the couple since the man would stay up all night just to play the online battle royale game and had trouble waking up in the morning.
Man would neglect family responsibilities due to game addiction
Further, the woman said her husband would often neglect family responsibilities as he would be busy playing the game. When she would confront him regarding this, he would get annoyed and accuse her of not being supportive. Thereafter, last month, he made a choice and decided to leave his family as he was not able to stay away from PUBG.
'Left with no choice but to support ourselves through hardships'
"It has been a month since he has left us. We are now left with no choice but to support ourselves through any hardship that may come," the woman wrote on the Facebook post. "Before he started playing PUBG, his personality was much more tolerable. However, the situation gradually grew worse from when he first started playing the game four years ago," she added.
