Not Fans Confusing Laverne Cox for Beyoncé!
Serena Williams’ victory at the 2022 U.S. Open was a major accomplishment, and while the athlete has undoubtedly received accolades for it, a Beyoncé impersonator who was spotted in the stadium has also been making waves online.
At the 2022 U.S. Open, some fans mistakenly believed they had spotted Beyonce in the crowd, but it was actually Laverne Cox!
On Monday night (August 29), in New York City, the 50-year-old Orange Is the New Black actress who has been nominated for four Emmys sat in the audience wearing an all-black dress and a matching black face mask.
Serena Williams is playing in her final U.S. Open match before she retires from tennis, and Laverne Cox was there to support her. She took to Instagram to post some of her favorite tweets after seeing the criticism that Cox had passed Queen B quite well.
Laverne Cox has a hilarious reply to the confusion
The four-time Emmy nominee captioned the photo, “Not me getting confused for @Beyonce at the #USOpen tonight, then trending on Twitter as the internet cackles over the false identity.” “These tweets are just hilarious. Enjoy!!!”
Go Serena Williams, “Laverne penned on Instagram. #GOAT #SerenaWilliams #Beyonce.
