Nightbot keeps banning the work "cockatoo"

So, i like to help a cetrain channel called “Parrot Town” with a lot of stuff, and lately, we were having problems with the nightbot chatbot. Whenever someone types the word “cockatoo” or “cockatiel” in the chat, nightbot deletes their message, mutes them for 5 seconds, and tells them not to swear. Now, Cockatoos and Cockatiels are species of parrots, but the bot mutes them, becuase they have the word “cock” in them. Is there any way to fix this?

edit No, we don’t have the word “cock” banned in the spam protection tab.

Without knowing the channel ID or the list of entries on the blacklist I cannot explain why cockatoo would trigger a timeout, but it is definitely a configuration issue (not a bug with Nightbot).
