Laverne Cox nixed an apology to power couple Will and Jada Pinkett Smith after asking Jada about former R&B singer August Alsina.

Cox, 49, was hosting the 2022 Screen Actors Guild Awards red carpet for E! on February 27. Cox’s Instagram followers were upset that Cox asked Jada about her “entanglement” with Alsina years ago.

Actress Vivica A. Fox slammed Cox as “tacky” during an episode of “Cocktails With Queens” on Fox Soul.

Fox was outraged that Cox ruined Will and Jada’s big night before winning his first-ever SAG Award.

“Talk about wrong place, wrong time,” Fox said, referring to Cox’s ill-timed question.

Fox added:

“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.”

Cox responded to the backlash in a long, rambling Instagram Story, saying there will be no apology to Will and Jada unless they personally request one.
