A rather unfortunate glitch has seen the Fortnite Bear Hug emote disabled by Epic Games after it was discovered by players for this popular Battle Royale game on PC and consoles.

Fortnite is undeniably one of the most popular Battle Royale games in the world. It's financially successful, too, and that success is largely driven through the sale of cosmetics and Battle Passes. Unfortunately, a recently-released emote had a somewhat unusual problem that put players in a... let's say compromising position.

The Fortnite Bear Huge Emote Glitch is Pretty Hilarious

If you're wondering why the Fortnite Bear Hug emote was disabled, you need only look at the above tweet from @DatOneJackalope. Two players go to use the emote as normal. However, one of the two players crouches at the last moment, changing it from a standard hug into one of those special Mommy and Daddy hugs I saw when I was 4 and can't quite seem to forget.

To put it another way: it looks an awful lot like fellatio. The sheer unexpectedness of the glitch shown in @DatOneJackalope's tweet is pretty entertaining, especially with @DatOneJackalope's character frozen in place while expecting a hug. I dare say it borders on a masterpiece of comedy.

 
 

As one might expect, it didn't take long for Epic Games to cotton on to the problem — as Eurogamer reports, Epic Games has temporarily disabled and removed the Fortnite Bear Hug Emote from the game's item shop to fix the problem. Understandably, the tweet announcing the removal did not explain why it was removed.

Epic Games will make the emote available again after it's fixed the rather amusing glitch; players will be able to get a tokenless refund sometime next week if they wish to do so. If you're feeling the itch to jump into the game again, you can play Fortnite for free on PC and consoles via its official website. You might want to take the opportunity to catch the Ariana Grande in-game concert that's happening tonight, too.

I've had a controller in my hand since I was 4 and I haven't stopped gaming since. CCGs, Tabletop Games, Pen & Paper RPGs - I've tried a whole bunch of stuff over the years and I'm always looking to try more!
