“This literally infuriates me. You’re the one needing distraction from what’s about to come. 100 per cent no,” one viewer said.
One commenter wrote: “That’s [exactly] what he will be doing once the baby is born too. Gaming while you are taking care of all of the babies needs [sic].”

“I don’t see the problem,” another said.
