Blocboy JB Calls Out 'Fortnite' For Co-opting 'Shoot Dance'

Posting on his Twitter, Blocboy JB criticized Fortnite by bringing up how people have started crediting his 'shoot dance' to Fortnite. "Everytime somebody does my dance dey give credit to Fortnite," he tweeted.

Epic Games' hugely popular Fortnite Battle Royale video game has received some criticism in the past for using a number of iconic dances as emotes without crediting the originators, with Chance the Rapper previously calling the developer out on Twitter. But now one of the originators of a dance included in the game, Blocboy JB with his hugely popular 'shoot dance,' has made it clear they don't appreciate the lack of credit.

Posting on his Twitter, Blocboy JB criticized Fortnite by bringing up how people have started crediting his 'shoot dance' to Fortnite. "Everytime somebody does my dance dey give credit to Fortnite," he tweeted. "But dey ain't create nothing but da game basically so dey taking money and credit for my shit dats crazy."

Later on, he tweeted, "Dey love out culture but hate our color," presumably referencing Epic Games.

Chance shared his opinion on Fortnite using all these popular dances back in July, tweeting, "Fortnite should put the actual rap songs behind the dances that make so much money as emotes. Black creatives created and popularized these dances but never monetized them. Imagine the money people are spending on these emotes being shared with the artists that made them."

He followed up the tweet with another, saying, "I would love to be able to buy Hype and also be purchasing 'Look Alive.'"
