Fortnite disables Bear Hug emote after placing players in explicit positions
Fortnite disabled the new Bear Hug emote due to a bug that made players appear to be definitely not kissing.
Parents, please put your kids to bed for this one as we’re going to be a little straightforward. Fortnite deactivated the new Bear Hug after it was only on sale for a few hours. Normally, the emote simply pairs two players together for a platonic hug, but under certain circumstances that hug becomes very un-platonic.
This video posted on Twitter by @DatOneJackalope shows two players using the new Bear Hug emote while leaving @DatOneJackalope hanging. It appears that if a player is on their knees when the emote is engaged, it causes that player to wrap their arms around the other player’s waist and bring their head to a very NSFW position.
Naturally, Epic disabled the Bear Hug emote earlier today and removed it from the Fortnite store. Anyone who purchased the emote can no longer use it and players will be eligible “make a refund without token next week. ”
And just so we know what the Bear Hug emote should look like, here’s a pair of Fortnite players hugging it in a way that won’t get them an R rating.
The timing of this bug couldn’t be worse for Epic. Ariana Grande is set to kick off her Rift Tour concert series tonight as the greatest thing that has ever happened to Fortnite, and possibly the greatest thing that has ever happened to a video game. Grande is expected to make over $ 20 million for this concert series and we are already calling it Bigger Than the Super Bowl halftime show.
The Rift Tour officially begins tonight at 6:00 PM EST, with more concerts throughout the weekend. Log into Fortnite now and you can count down with everyone while you wait for the Rift Tour to start.
