People these days have an easy way of getting famous for no apparent reason. With Youtube and various other forms of social media, making a name for yourself in the public eye isn’t as difficult as it once was.
We don’t think anyone could forget the famous line “Cash me ousside” that was said by 14-year-old Danielle Bregoli. She appeared on the Dr. Phil show with her mother, being known as the troubled teenager who doesn’t care about much.
The line quickly blew up the internet with everyone saying it, meme-ing it and making fun of it. Danielle is now a millionaire thanks to our support and love for her interesting line. This young teen definitely holds a ton of power.
In fact, the viral Dr. Phil guest is now all “lawyered up” and requires anyone who wants to use her line to cough up some money.
That’s right. If any company wants to use the line “cash me ousside, how bow dat?” they need to ask Bregoli’s permission, or else.
If you don’t, you might have to be prepared to “cash her ousside” the court of law. In fact, she already has her first “victim” who apparently used her line.
According to MAXIM, Danielle is suing Anonymous Games Inc. for releasing two apps that used her trademarked expression.
MAXIM notes that not only is Bregoli asking for $1 million in damages but she also expects to be owed all the revenue that the app has produced thus far. But she might not have a strong case.
According to MAXIM, as soon as Bregoli made a case, the company closed its How Bout Dat app and changed the name of Cash Me Outside to something less legally contentious.
The App is now called “Get Cash Outside.” They have removed all mentions of Bregoli’s catchphrase and replaced them with “It’s lit!”
MAXIM also mentions that Anonymous Games released these apps on Jan. 27, which is way before Bregoli trademarked “Cash me ousside, how bow dat?” on May 3rd.
