Alfonso Ribeiro sues "Fortnite" by Epic Games for alleged use of Carlton Dance



Alfonso Ribeiro of "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" is suing two gambling companies for allegedly using his famous Carlton Dance, according to a lawsuit filed on Monday.

Ribeiro claims that Fortnite maker Epic Games and NBA 2K Sports creator Take-Two Interactive used his well-known dance without permission or credit.

"Epic has wrongly benefited from taking advantage of Ribeiro's trademarked creative expression and his likeness and celebrity without his consent or permission," according to the deadline.

Ribeiro's dance was made popular by his figure Carlton Banks in the sitcom of the 1990s.

North Carolina-based Epic Games and Take Two from Delaware used his dance, which he first played in 1

991 in a "Fresh Prince" episode. Ribeiro said.

He asks for a judge's order to prevent both matches from his movements.

Ribeiro said he is currently in the process of copyrighting the dance.

Epic Games and Take T Woi speakers did not respond to requests for comment.
