Russel Horning, known online as Backpack Kid, is yet another person that's suing Epic Games over using one of their dance moves as Fortnite in-game emotes without compensation or asking permission. The emote in question is the Floss, added way back in Fortnite's second season.
Horning's mother has filed the lawsuit on behalf of her 16-year-old son.
The first person to sue Epic Games over using their dances in Fortnite was rapper 2 Milly whose dance, the Milly Rock, was renamed to Swipe It and sold for $5.
Yesterday, Alfonso Ribeiro, who portrayed Carlton Banks in well-known sitcom Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, also sued Epic Games over using his Carlton Dance in-game without permission.
This seems to be a running theme lately and one only has to wonder if the lawsuits will stop here. While they aren't in any way good news for Epic Games, Fortnite is still going strong and their new Epic Games Store has recently launched with a few exclusives of its own.
