Cardi B denied trademark for ‘okurrr’ catchphrase


Cardi B won’t be making money moves just yet.

The rapper, 26, filed paperwork to trademark “okurrr” in March, but she was denied the registration because the term is a “widely-used commonplace expression,” per United States Patent and Trademark Office records obtained by Page Six on Tuesday.


The trademark office used Redbubble, Etsy, Teepublic, Society6, Refinery 29, People, USA Today, Urban Dictionary and Dictionary.com to evidence that “this term or 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.'”

They argued that since people are already accustomed to the term, they wouldn’t necessarily associate “okurrr” with Cardi.

However, Cardi can file her own evidence proving otherwise to obtain the trademark.

She originally wanted the mark for “clothing, namely, T-shirts, sweatshirts, hooded sweatshirts, pants, shorts, jackets, footwear, headgear, namely, hats and caps, blouses, bodysuits, dresses, jumpsuits, leggings, shirts, sweaters, undergarments” and “paper goods, namely, paper cups and posters,” per the initial filing.

It is unclear if she intends to appeal.
