Alfonso Ribeiro Sues 'Fortnite' Over the Carlton Dance



Alfonso Ribeiro is suing Epic Games for allegedly stealing the signature “Carlton Dance” he created while playing Carlton Banks.  
He alleges the company is using and selling the dance under the “Fresh” emote.
Ribeiro claims he’s in the process of copyrighting the dance right now.

"Epic has earned record profits off of downloadable content in the game, including emotes like 'Fresh.' Yet Epic has failed to compensate or even ask permission from Mr. Ribeiro for the use of his likeness and iconic intellectual property."
