Lately, Epic Games hasn’t been on the goo side of celebrities as of late. In fact, a few of them are suing them for misuse of their signature dances placed in Fortnite.
First, Alfonso Ribeiro better known ad Carlton of The Fresh Prince of Bel Air is suing them for the use of his dance as the game calls it “The Fresh”. On top of that, Backpack Kid better known as Russell Horning is doing the same thing as the game includes his dance “the Floss”. Additionally, his mother sued Epic and Take Two Interactive since Russell is under 18.
In addition, here is what Ribeiro’s attorney told TMZ on the situation:
“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.”
Of course, the first to sue Epic is rapper 2 Milly for his Milly Rock being included in the game. Honestly, things aren’t looking too good for the company especially if they go continue to profit off dances that are copyrighted.
