Orange Shirt Kid Gets 'Orange Justice' On Fortnite And It's Phenomenal
If you've not heard of Fortnite you must have been living under a rock because we can't get away from it. Whether it's petitions banning it or Fortnite therapy sessions being introduced - we've heard it all.
Well, not the therapy bit, but we're sure it'll come into action soon and you heard it here first.
It you have been keeping up with all the Fortnite news you'll know that developer, Epic Games, announced the 'Boogiedown Contest' - a special event that tasked the fans to submit their dances for a chance to get their moves cemented into the actual game as an emote. This got people really excited.
The young boy was dressed in sweatpants and an orange shirt, he stood in front of the window in a dark bedroom, flailing his arms around and dancing in silence. It was truly brilliant - and people definitely agreed.
But the Boogiedown winner was announced and our hearts broke for the Orange Shirt Kid, resulting in #orangejustice.

As reported by comicbook, the actual winners were Populotus. They won their dance to be created as an emote, 10,000 V-Bucks, an exclusive IRL Boogie Bomb and all of the game's Disco cosmetics. Lucky beggars.
But this left people wondering what would happen to 'Orange Shirt Kid' - would that just be it? Surely not. Hopefully not. And they didn't keep quiet about who was the winner in their eyes.
And in a wonderful twist, justice was served, because 'Orange Shirt Kid' has been transformed into an emote. Three cheers for this LAD.
Petitions were even created for the movement - with this one racking up over 12,000 signatures. This is really serious stuff.
According to comicbook, the Fortnite player embraced the branding and named his Twitter account 'Orange Shirt Kid', and though he attracted a modest amount of followers through the dance submission, his actual video was retweeted nearly 20,000 times and received many more likes.
Orange Shirt Kid returned to announce on Twitter that the dance is officially in Fortnite and justice has been served. We couldn't be happier for him.
