Fortnite Gets Slammed by Scrubs Actor Donald Faison Over Dance Emote
Donald Faison, who played Turk on the classic sitcom Scrubs, lashes out at Fortnite for "jacking" his character's dance moves.
There’s no denying that Fortnite’s popularity reaches far and wide. The battle royale title has become something of a video game sensation recently and part of that phenomenon comes from the recognizable in-game dance emotes which are featured heavily in promotional material. So much so, that it’s not uncommon to see kids doing the Floss in public. However, not everyone is happy about the title’s dance moves.
Following hot on the heels of Brooklyn rapper 2 Milly who is currently seeking legal advice concerning his dance moves being used in Fortnite, Scrubs actor Donald Faison also seems annoyed about the addition of his moves in-game too.
Donald Faison, aged 44, played Turk in the popular TV show Scrubs. The hilarious sitcom revolved around the antics of a group of eccentric hospital interns and ran from 2001 to 2010. A classic scene from the show’s fifth season featured Turk dancing to hip-hop track Poison to Bell Biv DeVoe.
A cast reunion recently took place during the Vulture Festival 2018 at The Hollywood Roosevelt. During a panel in front of a live audience, Faison was asked to reenact the dance on stage. However, Doland waited until the cheers from the crowd died down before refusing to perform the dance. Instead, he angrily stated that if people wanted to see it in action they could play Fortnite.
“If you want to see it, you can play Fortnite because they jacked that sh*t!”
The dance move in question is featured in Fortnite and is suspiciously similar to the one seen in Scrubs. You can view Donald Faison’s bemused reaction to the request in the video below.
Fortnite is available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, PC, iOS and Android featuring crossplay between all platforms. If you’d like a more in-depth look at the pros and cons of the world’s most popular game, you can check out our Parent Guide to Fortnite.
