Fortnite battle royale is one of the world's most popular video games right now, especially with kids. Many parents around the world have likely had to argue with their kids to stop playing Fortnite, though thankfully most of those situations do not escalate to these extremes.

However, this situation does not appear to be a case of Fortnite addiction issues, but rather an argument between a mother and son that went way too far.
