ALFONSO RIBEIRO is suing two video game makers for using his ‘Carlton Dance‘ from “The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air”without his permission. The Carlton first appeared in a 1991 episode called ‘Will’s Christmas Show.’
He’s suing Epic, which makes “Fortnite”, and Take-Two, which does “NBA 2K”. He says both games feature digital versions of his dance.
And he’s not the only one trying to get a piece of the “Fortnight” money.
Brooklyn rapper 2 Milly is suing for the Milly Rock dance he created. And the Backpack Kid, who created flossing, has also filed suit.
(Here’s both the Carlton Dance and the clip from “Fortnight”.)
