According to TMZ, Horning’s mother has filed a lawsuit on his behalf against Fortnite for allegedly ripping off his signature dance.

Fortnite released the Season 2 Battle Pass in December of last year.

The game allows players who win to do the Floss.

Just like Alfonso Ribeiro and 2 Milly, Backpack Kid says he’s suing for intellectual property.

He’s also suing 2K Sports, which makes NBA 2K.
