A Rapper Is Considering Suing Fortnite Over Use Of In-Game Dance

2 Milly is pretty p*ssed that his signature dance move, the ‘Milly Rock’ appears in Fortnite – without his permission.

Speaking to CBS News, 2 Milly said: “Everybody was just like, ‘Yo, your dance is in the game.'”

Known as the Swipe It Emote in Fortnite, the dance is causing controversy for the rapper, because it’s an emote that Epic Games sells for around $5.

2 Milly complained: “[Epic Games] actually sell that particular move. It’s for purchase,

“That’s when I really was like … oh nah, this can’t go on too long.”

Although 2 Milly hasn’t stated what he wants to do going forward, it’s clear he’s not best pleased with Epic…

2 Milly isn’t the first person to challenge Epic and Fortnite for its use of emotes.

Earlier this year, Emmanuel Ocbazghi, video producer for Business Insider and Insider, accused the team of “profiting off of black dances…without compensating or crediting the artists who created them.”

From there an interesting question was raised – can you copyright a dance?

Maybe it’s time to say goodbye to Fortnite‘s infamous emotes…
