Laverne Cox should be apologizing to Will and Jada Pinkett Smith after she asked Jada about the former R&B singer August Alsina.
So it happened that the 49 year old Laverne Cox, was hosting the 2022 SAG Awards red carpet for E!, which was held February 27th, 2022. While speaking with the couple, she asked Jada smith about her “entanglement” with August Alsina years ago.
This stirred up dissatisfaction amongst Cox’s Instagram followers wondering why she would ask such questions.
During an episode of “Cocktails With Queens” on Fox Soul, Actress Vivica A. Fox also slammed Laverne Cox as she called what she did “tacky”
“Talk about wrong place, wrong time,” Fox said, referring to Cox’s ill-timed question.
In her voice she said,
“As she’s standing next to her husband who is absolutely in line to win an Oscar for playing the role of Richard in King Richard… Maybe [Cox] was trying to have her ‘Joan Rivers’ moment.”
Laverne Cox has responded to the backlash through her Instagram Story. She said that there will be no apology to Will and Jada smith unless they personally request one.
