Donald Faison has a claim of pride behind his dance moves in Scrubs.
So he was definitely not happy when a game franchise ripped off his smooth moves.
Chris Turk on Scrubs certainly did have killer dance moves.
Watch Faison as the character here.

So imagine Donald Faison's surprise when the same moves showed up in a video game not too long ago.

At the Vulture Festival 2018 Scrubs cast reunion, Faison made his displeasure of the unauthorized copy plain when asked if he would perform his legendary dance.
"If you wanna see it, you can play Fortnite, because they jacked that sh*t."
Executive producer Bill Lawrence has confirmed it is, in fact, the same dance.
"Fortnite had to enquire for the legal…for the legality of it, and it's fine because it's just a character dancing."

But Faison is not that amicable about the "legal" use of his moves.
"I don't get no money. That's what y'all are thinking, right? Somebody got paid?"
"No. No. I did not. Somebody stole that sh*t, and it's not mine any more."
