Headlines 18/12/2018

There's no denying the popularity of Fortnite, it's everywhere, and it's managed to become a cultural landmark that this era of gaming will be remembered for. What it will also be remembered for, is the amount of times it was sued for stealing popular dances without giving credit. 

Rapper BlocBoy JB sued the video game creators earlier in the year for not creditting him for the "Shoot" dance, while fellow rapper 2 Milly did the same for the "Milly Rock." And now, Alfonso Ribeiro, AKA Carlton from the Fresh Prince, is suing Fortnite too, for stealing his iconic "Carlton Dance."

According to TMZ, Ribeiro filed a lawsuit against Epic Games, accusing them of stealing his iconic dance moves that he popularised in the 90's sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. n court documents, Ribeiro argues that the Fortnite creators allowed characters to perform a new dance called "Fresh Emote" which came out on January 2nd, 2018. However, he claims the dance they used is a complete copycat of his famous dance that he performed throughout the 90's on The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air. In addition to filing a lawsuit against Epic Games, Alfonso Ribeiro is currently in the middle of copyrighting the Carlton dance.
