Fortnite patch 4.0 is here and with it comes Fortnite Battle Royale Season 4. As part of the celebration, a whole bunch of new emotes, dances, and costumes have joined Fortnite Battle Royale. But one dance breaks away from the pack as a shout out to the community.
In the free Battle Pass on Tier 26, your reward is a dance called "Orange Justice". The dance is a reference to Twitter user Orange Shirt Kid. Back in early April, Epic Games kicked off the BoogieDown dance contest, asking fans to send in dance videos. The winner wasn't Orange Shirt Kid, but fans rallied behind the absolutely insane dance moves of this young man.
The dance received 43,800 likes on Twitter. YouTuber turned the kid into a meme. There was a Change.org petition signed by over 11,000 people asking Epic Games to change the contest winner to Orange Shirt Kid.
Epic Games has answered the community's outcry and offered justice to Orange Shirt Kid. Fans who loaded up Fortnite Battle Royale found the Orange Justice dance there, waiting to be earned for a season's worth of play. It's kind of Epic Games to put dance where it is: considering the community fervor, it could've been much higher or in the paid Battle Pass.
Of course, the kid in question had such a pure response to the reveal.
