SUBSCRIBE for More Theories! ►
When you're on top, everyone is aiming to take you down. And no game this year has been MORE on top than Fortnite. Fortnite, with the success of its Battle Royale mode, is the number one target for everyone trying to get a piece of its crown and today, it once AGAIN finds itself knee deep in hot water. I'm talking lawsuits! First it was PUBG claiming that Fortnite had stolen its gameplay, then it was concerned parents worried over Battle Royale causing their children to become violent. And now, it's Carlton from the Fresh Prince of Bel Air! That's right, Carlton, Backpack Kid, and others are suing Fortnite for stealing their iconic dance moves. Can they legally do that? Is Fortnite in trouble YET AGAIN? Or will they be able to skate by unscathed? Today Loyal Theorists, we are dancing our way to the TRUTH about the Fortnite Dance controversy!

Guys, I know Orange Shirt kid submitted the dance as a contest entry -- it was just a dramatic device for framing the episode around whether arguing if Orange Shirt owns the dance. Technically, all contest submissions would be owned by Epic. I just liked the hypothetical. Also, in case you missed it, I already had a note about Roy Purdy in the episode (along the bottom of the screen). But since it's "Orange Justice," I figured it'd make sense to give credit to him.

Wait but if a game like tf2 has made their own dances/taunts then wouldn’t they be able to sue them because some are so similar?

Guys the 9 years old kids making fun of mayo at you are stupid why because you are playing a stupid game that is dying and it’s under some bunch of stupid company’s and I am 11 when I was ten I liked the game but not much then in the same age I realized the game is beginning to be trash and coping dances I am not playing this trash game I am happy that it got deleted on apple store many kids in the same age or smaller became Not respectful and shouting stealing their parents credit card you know the definition of caring about your players the guy who made flappy bird made the game so when you have a hard time you play it or when you are bored in a train station but people became addicted to the game I think a brother stapped his brother for the game then he removed it from apple store to protect the people playing it and not become crazy that guy is the true definition of caring about your community and protect them but also there are other ways to do that this game is meant for 16 years old or 18 I hope this game burn the next year and I hope it never get a the best game of the year award any 9 year old addicted to this game if you said anything bad to me I hope you get back to your normal self and go play outside with your friends when the COVID-19 thing ends and go play roblox or Minecraft. And thank you
