Laverne Cox called ‘satan’ for teaming up with Beyoncé for gorgeous Ivy Park campaign
Orange is the New Black star Laverne Cox has teamed up with Beyoncé for a special Ivy Park campaign – and transphobic trolls aren’t happy.
Cox met Beyoncé at the Grammys this year and said she never thought she ever would.
She told People: “I was like, ‘I love you,’ and she’s like, ‘I know you do . . . I love you, too.’ And she’s like ‘Your Lip Sync Battle was amazing,’—she had seen I did Destiny’s Child.”
Cox announced the collaboration on Twitter earlier this month and Beyoncé shared images from the diverse campaign featuring Cox on Facebook today.
But while most congratulated the actor for appearing in the campaign, some had some less than kind words.
One user wrote: “Satan is the great deceiver who can alter his appearance to manipulate others!”
Another added: “Has anybody ever thought of Transgender being disease of the mind.
“God made you perfect when he created you in your mothers womb. You didn’t have to change a thing about yourself.”
But despite a number of trolls commenting on the pictures, many were positive and sent messages of love to Cox.
Others defended her against nasty comments.
One responded to the Satan comment, saying: “And you’re a great d*ckhole.”
