Fortnite is in its fair share of legal trouble. Rapper BlocBoy JB is now suing Epic Games for their use of his viral “Shoot” dance in Fortnite. According to Hypebeast, the game used BlocBoy JB’s dance moves without crediting the rapper.
Despite not having a legal copyright placed on the dance move, Hypebeast says that BlocBoy JB is responsible for the dance’s popularization.
