Cardi B's Attempt To Trademark 'Okurrr' Denied By U.S. Patent Office
Looks like Cardi B won’t be trademarking her catch phrase, "Okurrr" after all. According to the New York Daily News, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected her trademark for the phrase, which she applied for back in March to use on paper goods, such as cups and posters, and clothing, like T-shirts and undergarments.
The patent office is not allowing Cardi to register "Okurrr" because it is "commonplace term, message, or expression widely used by a variety of sources that merely conveys an ordinary, familiar, well-recognized concept or sentiment."
They also said that the expression is "commonly used in the drag community and by celebrities as an alternate way of saying 'OK' or 'something that is said to affirm when someone is being put in their place.’"
