The video ends with Jideonwo suggesting that if fans want to see it, they should “hit Epic Games and fortnite”.
This idea met with mixed reception. An user Tweeted “Please let Juice in fortnite OMG”, although others seem less happy.
“If Juice’s label thinks it’s a tribute to him, it’s not” shared another fan. “Juice didn’t die to be a fortnite the skin. Maybe if the skin came out before he died it would be different, but it could happen would be so disrespectful and cringe
