Cardi B Tried But Failed To Secure #Trademark Of “#Okurrr”; #DragRace #LaganjaEstranja's #Catchphrase

The catchphrase “Okurrr” was made popular on “RuPaul’s Drag Race” Season 6 by Laganja Estranja. She frequently used the expression on interviews, challenges and interactions in the Werk Room. Since then, the expression caught on and adopted by other personalities on and off camera, like RuPaul, Stephen Colbert on the Emmys, her fellow Drag Race alums, and others beyond the LGBT community.

Cardi B's attempt at securing trademark for the expression is like stealing, it's unoriginal and a cheap move.

It's a good thing the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office rejected it, and thereby discouraging others from doing the same in the future.

The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office says Cardi B cannot trademark her signature catchphrase — or catchsound — “okurrr.”
