<p style="font-size:.8em;"><a href="">Enlarge</a> <span>/</span> Actor Alfonso Ribeiro shows off “The Carlton” during a <em>Dancing with the Stars</em> performance. </p>
<p><em>Forza Horizon 4</em> no longer features two dance emotes—the Carlton and the Floss—which were previously available for use by in-game avatars. The removal is listed under the “Other Improvements” section in <a href="">the notes for the game’s Series 5 update</a>, which launched yesterday with a new online adventure playlist and new Mitsubishi cars for the game, among other changes.</p>
<p>Microsoft has not offered a public explanation for the removal, though a spokesperson <a href="">told Kotaku</a> “<em>Forza Horizon 4</em> features a large portfolio of content and is continuously updated.” The move comes, though, after both dances became the subject of lawsuits regarding their similar inclusion in Epic’s <em>Fortnite</em>.</p>
<p>The Carlton—popularized by actor Alfonso Ribeiro <a href="">on <em>The Fresh Prince of Bel Air</em></a>—and the Floss—popularized by Russell “Backpack Kid” Horning <a href="">in a <em>Saturday Night Live</em> performance</a>—are the apparent inspiration for two <em>Fortnite</em> emotes that can be purchased as part of various Battle Pass DLC packages. Lawsuits filed against Epic by those dancers accuse the <em>Fortnite</em> maker of illegally profiting from their copyrighted dance creations.</p>
