LA Times feature writer Gustavo Arellano is making the case for why NBA star LeBron James should liberate “Taco Tuesday” and make it un-trademarkable.
Word got out that James is attempting to trademark “Taco Tuesday.” James uses Instagram on Tuesdays to share videos of his family and friends as they prepare to eat tacos. Taco Johns acquired the rights to “Taco Tuesday” about three decades ago and Arellano says the restaurant chain will undoubtedly fight James’ attempt to trademark it. Arellano says James has the opportunity to do some good. He thinks the Lakers star should use the legal battle to officially liberate “Taco Tuesday” for the world to enjoy. He even offers to take James on a “taco crawl” through L.A. for inspiration.
