Will Smith won the SAG award for outstanding performance for his leading role in the biopic ‘King Richard’ over the weekend. And while folks are still congratulating him on the accomplishment, him and his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith are also trending after their red carpet interview with Laverne Cox.
We posted a snippet of the interview where Laverne is thanking the couple for their contributions to entertainment and society on the red carpet, and she jokingly mentioned Jada’s “entanglement”. The couple laughed off the comment, but it looks like Vivica A. Fox can’t do the same!
Vivica recently called Laverne’s comment “tacky” and explained that she may have shot herself in the foot when it comes to red carpet interviews. Vivica explained that there’s a time and place for everything, and insulting a power couple in the industry was a bad move for Cox.
“Talk about wrong place, wrong time,” Vivica said. “I just think that you have to pick and choose because darling, please remember that Will Smith and Jada Pinkett are a power couple. They do a lot of work, they’re very well connected. There are people that now if you might be on the red carpet, they’re gonna all right passed yo a** quickly.”

“There are people that when they see you now, they’re gonna sweep their people right passed you like, ‘No we don’t do her. So that’s what you set yourself up for,” she continued. “When you pick a moment to have a viral moment, you have to watch. You have to watch, when you’re climbing the ladder of success, who you choose to insult.”
Laverne Cox has yet to publicly address the comment.
