“The Backpack Kid,” became famous during an episode of SNL when Katy Perry was the musical guest.
Russell Horning, 16, introduced the world to a dance known as “The Floss.”
According to gossip website Fox8, Horning’s mother has filed a lawsuit on his behalf against online video game company Fortnite for allegedly ripping off his signature dance.
Fortnite released the Season 2 Battle Pass in December of last year.
Horning says he’s suing for intellectual property.
He says he was in the process of copyrighting the dance moves when the gaming giant stole “The Floss”.
He’s also suing 2K Sports, which makes NBA 2K, claiming that they also stole his dance.
