Epic Games‘ Fortnite game finds itself in legal hot water again as it receives it’s third high-profile case, this time against Russell Horning, also known as The Backpack Kid. Just weeks after 2 Milly’s announcement, and days after Alfonso Ribeiro‘s (Carlton Banks) legal action news, The Backpack Kid is claiming ownership over the popularized “Flossing” dance technique — a dance that he has built his career off of, and gained millions of followers from.
The awkward thing is, The Backpack Kid has been a supporter of the game, and has even participated last June in Epic Games’ Fortnite Party Royale. There is even footage of him replying with “It’s not that big of a deal, I’m just glad it’s in the game.” when asked about his dance being used without credit. Stay tuned for more news as the Fortnite drama unfolds.
