Author Faleena Hopkins has taken it upon herself to trademark the word “cocky” within the romance book world. By doing so she has created quite a backlash for herself as she has threatened to sue any and all authors who do not remove the word cocky from their book titles or descriptions. Check out some of the screenshots below for more details.
She uploaded a Facebook live video address those who are upset by her actions in the most bizarre way. Her behavior is disturbing. There was no way I could stay silent any longer. Check out my running commentary on the video with my husband.
Before you listen to this podcast I want to inform you a few things.
- I curse. . . a lot.
- I say bitch. . . a lot.
- I think Faleena Hopkins may need mental help. . . I could be wrong.
- My husband has a strong accent and I hope you can understand him ok. I asked him to tone that accent down for the podcast and hopefully he does.
Faleena Hopkins decided to trademark the word “cocky” to protect her brand – or so she says. I’m not buying it.
Remember to follow all things messy. . .

This woman has to be degranged! I seriously hope that this will be overturned! She has seriously ran her career in the ground by attacking authors.
She is scoring zero points with her behavior. I don’t understand how she can’t see what the real problem is. I will never support her or her books. She’s lost so many readers and authors with this mess.
I’ve never even heard of her before this! But I was too through after I saw that post where she’s talking about she forgives everyone who has bullied her. WTF!
Right! I didn’t feel like people were even bullying her – she was the aggressor in this situation.
I’m dying! You and your husband have me on the floor laughing with tears down my face 😂😂😂 I absolutely love this!!! I also had the same reactions while watching! #irrelevant
The girl needs professional help. It was a crazy meltdown or something.
I loved This! Thank you
Thank you so much!
I’ve been watching this one too, thanks for sharing your thoughts!
I couldn’t help myself. When she made the video, she set herself up for failure.
Who dis woman?????
An indie author who wants to take money out of others pockets. She needs to take several seats.
She must’ve taken the video down, because I can’t find it.
She’s so stupid. This is the internet and she should know that nothing ever goes away. Someone posted it to youtube. Here you go. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=96CjvfJTTHM&sns=tw
She pulled it down already. 😛
It was only a matter of time. She can be as stupid as she’s coming off to be.
Nope, soon they’ll post to some non YouTube links where she can’t make copyright claims.
I watched this also this morning ! And because I made a few comments, she’s blocked me.
She’s and delusional narcissist and needs help !
It was like watching a person break down. Where was her family , friends and fans?? ABSOLUTELY needs to stop her ranting!!
THANKS FOR YOUR INCREDIBLE INSIGHT, both you and your husband !!!
I can’t image someone in their right mind telling her that this is okay. I hope someone helps her soon because she is creating more of a mess every single day.
What. The. Actual. Fuck. Why would anyone do that?
That’s what I wonder too. I seriously think she may might be ill.
So repeat: piblicity LOL OK I love your hubs laugh and you both were so entertaining to listen to. But I am with you on the analogy with your president!
Sometimes I wonder if he really loves me! Hahahahahaha!!! I can’t pronounce things sometimes for the life of me. LOL!!
Ohhhhh, my God….she’s so DRAMATIC. Thanks for this.
Anytime ☺️ Yes, crazy freaking dramatic. I agree!
I’m clearly behind on listening to your podcast! 🤭 She has really sunk her ship in this community, and she’s such an idiot! Really enjoyed this one, and love your commentary with your hubs! =D
He was such a great sport for doing it. I’m glad you liked it. It was fun to record because that chick is crazy AF!
Maybe she was talking to herself. Multiple personality disorder?
For sure! That woman is a not healthy. She needs someone to step in and help her.
I love your husbands “slid off her cracker” remark. I’m crying 😭 lol
He think he’s funny too! Hahahahahaha!!!
I cannot stop laughing at both of your reactions!! When you whisper “bitch is crazy” – seriously! Tears! Thanks you both SO MUCH for this 😀 😀
Thank you so, so much!!!! It was so fun to make. I hope that woman gets some help! 🙂
Hilarious. I cried when your husband made a comment with ‘Irrelevant’s’ first squeal; he said something about her being an animal at Busch Gardens…LMAO. That was followed by your ‘crazy bitch’ remark.
I have to agree. She needs to cease the histrionics. After all, she started this shit.
LOL!!!! Sometimes I wonder about that man of mine 🙂 I hope the lawyers knock her silly little trademark to kingdom come. She has created to much mess.
