The RACE to Solve Fortnite's MYSTERY! ►

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?

*Looks at the people saying the animal jam sabertooth is doing fortnite dances* “No.” The sabertooth is doing just a dance that fortnite also stole. Its NOT DOING A FORTNITE DANCE and someone from ajhq even said that the sabertooth is not doing a fortnite dance. Fortnite stole the dance. The middle dance at 2:43. Its not originally from fortnite.
