Thursday, February 07 2019

The mother of a boy affectionately known as "orange shirt kid" is suing Epic Games, the makers of the popular video game "Fortnite," for including her son’s awkward "orange justice" dance in the game.

According to news reports, the orange shirt kid submitted the dance to Epic Games as part of a dance contest called BoogieDown. After he did not win, Fortnite players convinced Epic Games to include the dance. Now, his mom is suing, even though the rules for the dance contest made it clear that all submissions could be used and that no one would be paid for use of a selected dance. Epic further contends the dance was also never sold, but instead given away as part of the free battle pass.

In the lawsuit, the boy’s mother, Rachel McCumbers, says that orange shirt kid exploded in popularity in or around early 2018 after he made a video of himself performing his dance called "the Random." The lawsuit further claims the dance is no longer called "the Random," but "Orange Justice." McCumbers is seeking unspecified damages.
