LeBron's Trademark Application for 'Taco Tuesday' Has Been Denied

James wanted to monetize his social media videos featuring the "Taco Tuesday" term.

Apparently LeBron is now taking this unofficial holiday to a whole new level.

In a decision that is shocking to approximately four people, the United States Patent and Trademark decided that LeBron James' application to trademark the phrase "Taco Tuesday" wasn't legitimate enough to win.

Like clockwork, James' application was denied. He did not invent the term.

"Finding "Taco Tuesday" as commonplace achieves precisely what the intended outcome was, which was getting the USA government to recognize that someone can not be sued for its use", the spokesman said. Now, James is looking to file a trademark for the phrase. Just because they don't technically own the concept doesn't mean there isn't a way for them to turn a profit on LeBron's Taco Tuesday following.

A lawyer revealed via Twitter that LeBron's company LBJ Trademarks LLC filed a trademark for Taco Tuesday as he intends to launch a podcast under the same name.

James' company, naturally, sought to capitalize on his appeal, filing an application for use of the phrase in "podcasting services" as well as "online entertainment services. and social media posts in the field of sports, entertainment, current events and popular culture".
