'Fresh Prince' Actor Alfonso Ribeiro Sues Fortnite for Using 'Carlton Dance'

You may remember what's known as the "Carlton Dance" from "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air." Now the makers of Fortnite are facing a lawsuit from actor Alfonso Ribeiro, who played Carlton in the TV show.

He claims the popular video game swiped his dance without giving him credit, while developers profited.

"Backpack Kid" Russell Horning and rapper 2 Milly are also going after the game's developers with suits of their own, alleging their dances were also stolen.
