Cardi B filed paperwork to trademark “Okurrr.” (The Blast)
She explained to Jimmy Fallon that her catchphrase sounds like a “cold pigeon in New York City.”
Three Rs in “Okurrr” will be used on Cardi B posters and “paper goods.” In February, she trademarked the two-R “Okurr” for “hoodies, jackets, footwear, headgear, bodysuits, leggings and undergarments.” (E! News)
Cardi B did not originate “Okurrr.” Neither did Kendall Jenner and her sisters, Khloe and Kourtney, who used it two years ago on Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Credit for “Okurrr” goes to drag queen Laganja Estranja [pr: law-GONE-juh ESS-trawn-juh]. Five years ago, she said “Okurrr” during season six of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Two years later, when Kim Kardashian created an “Okurrr” Kimoji, Laganja Estranja tweeted, (quote) “POOR ME! Another one of my word candies has been stolen!!” (People)
