NEW YORK, New York – Russel Horning, better known as “The Backpack Kid,” became famous during an episode of SNL when Katy Perry was the musical guest.

He introduced the world to a dance known as “The Floss.”

Since then he’s been all over social media teaching celebrities how to Floss.

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.
