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.
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.
