Backpack Kid is the latest to jump into the lawsuit game over Fortnite allegedly ripping off signature dances.
Backpack Kid’s mom filed the latest lawsuit on behalf of her 16-year-old kid, who blew up back in 2016 when he posted videos of himself on Instagram doing a dance, which he called The Floss.
Fortnite released the Season 2 Battle Pass in December of last year and, as part of the Pass, it offered a new, rare emote that it called The Floss. It allows the players who win the game to do the dance.
Just like Alfonso Ribeiro and 2 Milly, Backpack Kid says he’s in the process of copyrighting the dance, but claims Fortnite has still ripped him off.
He’s also suing 2K Sports, which makes NBA 2K, claiming it too stole his dance.
Backpack Kid is suing for unspecified damages and wants a judge to stop the companies from stealing his moves.
Carolynn Kyungwon Beck and David Hecht of Pierce Bainbridge Beck Price & Hecht are repping Backpack Kid.
