Vivica A. Fox is reacting to Laverne Cox’s “tacky” interaction with Will Smith and Jada Pinkett Smith over the weekend at the Screen Actors Guild Awards.
On Sunday (Feb. 27), before Will won the first SAG Award of his career, Cox stopped the couple on the red carpet. The “Orange Is the New Black” actress said she “can’t wait for more ‘Red Table Talk’ and more entanglements,” referring to Jada’s extramarital affair and popular Facebook series.
Jada and Will laughed off the comment, but many on social media called Cox “messy” for bringing up the topic on the red carpet.
“Not a tasteful comment from Laverne, who made Will and Jada visibly uncomfortable,” a third user tweeted. “In a field where it’s already hard to get celebrities to stop by Black journalists and interviewers, this does not make it any easier.”
Vivica A. Fox apparently agrees with fans and shared her thoughts about the situation on “Fox Soul.”
“Talk about wrong place, wrong time,” Fox said. “… As [Jada’s] standing next to her husband, who is absolutely in line to win an Oscar for playing the role of Richard [Williams] in Venus and Serena Williams’ story, King Richard… I just thought it was tacky.”
“Because darling, please remember that Will Smith and Jada are a power couple. They do a lot of work, they’re very well-connected,” she explained. “There are people that now, when you go on the red carpet, they’re gonna walk right past your ass, quickly.”
