Fortnite Removes NSFW Emote Before Ariana Grande Rift Tour Event

Epic Games has removed Fortnite’s newest emotes before the big Ariana Grande Rift Tour event. First, this was due to some NSFW implications. Second, it was the “Bear Hug” animation. When it works correctly, it allows players and their pets to hug for a short time. Epic Games temporarily disabled the emote because some players were able to create an accidental result.

Although¬†Fortnite’s¬†official Twitter account didn’t make much of the emote’s disappearance, the Fortnite Status Twitter account shared information about it. It was initially stated that the emote had been removed, and players would be notified when it is back up. However, when it wasn’t, it was reported that the account continued to update that it will remain disabled for a while. As compensation, those who bought the emote in question will receive a refund.

Fortnite players were happy to reveal the problem, despite Epic Games’ vagueness. The emote could be used when a player crouches in certain situations, as shown by the tweet below. The intended bear hug was still created by both players, although the animation ended up being a little lower than a standing animation. However, if one of the two players embraces the other, it makes the energy look unintentional.

Epic Games doesn’t make inappropriate emotes, so this wouldn’t hold under normal circumstances. However, Epic Games was recently added to the game with an Ariana Grande skin. The emote was quickly removed and kept out the game before the Rift tour event.
