Representative Jasmine Crockett is capitalizing on her viral clash with far-right Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene by trademarking the phrase “bleach blonde bad-built butch body.” This move is part of her “Crockett Clapback Collection,” featuring memorable phrases from the Texas lawmaker.

Crockett announced the trademark on social media, revealing plans to sell hats, hoodies, socks, and T-shirts with the phrase. Proceeds from the collection, dubbed “B6” for its alliteration, will support Democratic candidates. “This collection will feature various swag that includes random things I’ve said,” Crockett posted, emphasizing her intent to aid the Democratic House.

The origin of the trademark dates back to a House Oversight Committee meeting. Greene, in a rant involving Judge Juan Merchan’s daughter, insulted Crockett’s appearance. Crockett responded sharply, asking Greene, “Do you know what we’re here for?” Greene replied, “I don’t think you know what you’re here for. I think your fake eyelashes are messing up what you’re reading.”

Crockett’s retort, mentioning “bleach blonde bad-built butch body,” questioned the limits of congressional decorum. She later clarified on CNN that her comment was to seek clarification on protocol violations and stood by her words.

Greene’s Response To Crockett’s Trademark

In response to Crockett’s trademark and merchandise plans, Greene posted a workout video on social media. “Yes, my body is built and strong,” Greene wrote. “NOT with nips, tucks, plastic, or silicone, but through a healthy lifestyle.”

Greene continued her commentary on Fox News, addressing body shaming while paradoxically engaging in it. “I think no matter what shape, size, or how we look, we need to be ourselves,” she stated, criticizing societal pressures for artificial enhancements.

The merchandise is currently still in the works. However, the first item, a black T-shirt featuring the phrase, is set to launch soon. Trademark filings reveal plans to use the phrase for various clothing items and political consultancy.
