    • +Jovaan McKinney if you guys think it’s only a 1 dollar/100 vbucks for the dance cause its 1 tier and fortnite didnt peak and got big till season 3 with john wick and season 4 with the rocket launch

      So I doubt a million ppl have it
      If they do win the mother isnt going to see much the lawyer is taking most of it cause I’m sure it was his idea

    • +ACPlayer619909 his momy prolly making him say that. N u believe everything this mf say how sad. U must be delusional into believing these rats . his dumb mommy could of sued long time ago but didn’t .

  1. At this rate people are gonna sue fortnite for trees

    Wow I didn’t know I was gonna get this many likes. Thanks I appreciate it!

  2. Im suing Fortnite because they use grass in game which is the same grass in real life on my backyard.
    also they stole a Christmas tree which look really similar to mine so yeah.
    thank you for over 1k likes , not the most I got.

    • +Oh Yeah yeah Ryan mayall didnt make the dance he got it off someone and that someone got it off someone else. Learn your facts dude.

    • +Tony Brazil Ryan mayall didnt make the dance he got it off someone and that someone got it off someone else. Learn your facts dude

    • dhudson369 lol no I don’t think so if he did wouldn’t he send credit to the guy who did?

    • +Johnny Hurtado the floss has been around for 8 years!! He didn’t make it!

  3. Your mom and your manager just killed your reputation for money, so be sure to thank them for manipulating you

    • [MILKMAID] you what I mean
      Cuz he sued fornite is how we know he stole the dance?
      Like that is how we really know?

    • Did he “steal” the dance, or did the internet say he “stole” it? Maybe he just danced and the internet exploded after fortnite ripped it?

    • Kelly Pagano He has claimed the dance several times. He used to call himself “inventor of the floss”

  4. Lol only the year 2000+ kids thinking he created this dance but this was out in the 60s and would of been created by a caveman to attract his mate.
