The phrase gained tons of popularity after her appearance on Jimmy Fallon last year. While co-hosting the gig, Fallon asked the star to define “Okurrr,” among other Cardi catchphrases.
“You know, it’s like a cold pigeon in New York City… Okurrr,” she explained before showcasing the different variations of the saying. “It depends on the situation that you’re in. If somebody checks somebody, it’s like…okurrr! I didn’t know she had all of that in her, okurrr! It’s like okaaay, but okay is played out…. We’ve done that already!”
Cardi not only filed to trademark “Okurrr” with three R’s but she also filed documents to trademark a version with two R’s.
