The Los Angeles Lakers superstar filed his application at the end of August.

"The refusal, issued at 6:26 PM today, finds that TACO TUESDAY is a "commonplace message" and therefore fails to function as a trademark", he reports.
U.S. Patent and Trademark Office denied Lebron James' attempt to trademark the "Taco Tuesday" term. Every bar in America would have answered the take that "Taco Tuesday" is a common place message but no LeBron has further authority on how widely used the phrase is. Nevertheless, LeBron and his variety of media outlets could create all of the formal "Taco Tuesday" content they want on social media and on the internet in general. First discovered by @JoshGerben.
If you're unfamiliar, over the previous year or so, James has famously taken to Instagram to show off his family's taco night, featuring him exuberantly yelling "It's taco Tuuuuuesday", then panning around to the rest of the table and encouraging his loved ones to do the same - they often do so, perhaps reluctantly.
AD is learning quickly. Now, James is looking to file a trademark for the phrase.
