Alfonso Ribeiro’s sweet moves are not up for the taking.
The actor and television personality, 47, is suing the makers of the Fortnite video game for ‘stealing’ the dance he created playing Carlton Banks on the 90s sitcom Fresh Prince Of Bel Air.
A suit was filed against Epic Games – which developed the wildly popular multiplayer port – on Monday according to TMZ.
Ribeiro claims the video game included a new dance move for its characters called the ‘Fresh emote’ on January 2, 2018 and it’s a ‘carbon copy’ of the famous movements he came up with for the Will Smith vehicle.
The actor even performed the dance when he was a contestant on season 19 of Dancing With The Stars in 2014.
The hilarious choreography includes his arms being swung wildly back and forth as he shuffles his feet in a two-step.
The computer graphic character for the video game does a spot on impression.
Ribeiro also claims he is in the middle of copyrighting the Carlton dance.
This isn’t the first time Epic Games has been in hot water for it’s characters’ dances.
Rapper 2 Milly sued the company earlier this month for allegedly using his popular Milly Rock moves for its ‘Swipe It’ choreography.
According to the suit, the game copied his dance as well as others like Snoop Dog’s Drop It Like It’s Hot without consent or compensation ‘to exploit African-American talent’ for profit reported TMZ.
Epic Games has yet to release a statement on either suits.
