Cardi B's request to trademark her catchphrase "okurrr" has been denied.

The Bodak Yellow hitmaker tried to trademark the phrase back in March (19), to be used mostly for merchandise. But officials from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office have rejected her application, ruling the slogan falls under the category of "widely-used commonplace expressions", according to documents obtained by The Blast.

They also explained it "is a slogan or term that does not function as a trademark or service mark to indicate the source of applicant's goods and/or services", and that it does not distinguish itself from other similar marks.

The 26-year-old also submitted an application to try to include the commonly misspelled "okurr" in the trademark, but fans had been divided over the filing, as the phrase has existed in minority communities for years.
