Carlton sues Fortnite over dance theft

Carlton sues Fortnite over dance theft
Are you a Fortnite player? Then you’ve probably noticed one of the buyable emotes is a dance called ‘Fresh’, which looks like the dance Carlton used to do in Fresh Prince of Bel Air. Fortnite has been making record levels of wedge from selling in game goodies, and you know what that means…
 
…the law suits are coming. The latest person to sue Fortnite over borrowing / stealing their stuff is Alfonso Ribeiro, aka Carlton himself, who we presume invented the moves. Here’s the official statement:
 
“It is widely recognized that Mr. Ribeiro’s likeness and intellectual property have been misappropriated by Epic Games in the most popular video game currently in the world, Fortnite… Epic has earned record profits off of downloadable content in the game, including emotes like “Fresh.” Yet Epic has failed to compensate or even ask permission from Mr. Ribeiro for the use of his likeness and iconic intellectual property.”
 
The video below shows why this is a slam dunk for Carlton:
