Did Fortnite just copy Ana Cotos viral roller-skating dance from TikTok?

For a moment there, it seemed like Epic Games was going to work with creators to uplift their popular dance moves by letting players officially reenact them in Fortnite instead of simply copying them to sell more emotes and skins for your in-game avatar.
But actress and dancer Ana Coto says Epics upcoming Freewheelin emote doesnt credit her for its eerily similar dance moves or its midriff baring, glasses-wearing, roller-skating skin and it seems impossible Epic wouldnt be aware of her contribution.
