The infamous Moth Meme quickly became one of the best memes of 2018, and now it’s even made its way to Fortnite via an incredibly popular skin.
The moth skin hasn’t impressed everyone though – the creator of the moth meme has asked Reddit whether Epic Games is allowed to make the skin without permission.
Spotted on Twitter, Reddit user No_Reason27 asked: “Hi, I’m the guy posted the original message photo of the moth, and I recently learned that Fortnite is making it into a character, and I was wondering if that was legal for them to do?

Whether or not No_Reason27 can take action against Epic isn’t known, but he’s not the first person keen to call-out Epic on its use of other people’s assets.
Faison recently announced that the famous dance, which was originally created to the song “Poison,” was created by himself during the filming of Scrubs episode, “My Half Acre.”
At a recent panel appearance, Faison told fans asking to see his moves: “If you want to see it, you can play Fortnite, because they jacked that sh*t!”
However, Scrubs creator Bill Lawrence said he was approached by someone asking if they could make use of the choreography in the game, to which Lawrence agreed.
Other popular dances in the game include Flossing, Orange Justice and Milly Rock.
Do you think Epic is ‘stealing’?
