Laverne Cox Plans To Celebrate Her Historic Emmy Nomination With Justin Timberlake

laverne-cox-1I’ve run around my apartment. I’ve jumped up and down. I screamed. I cried. I called my mother and my brother and I cried with them. And laughed. And I’m going to a Justin Timberlake concert tonight.”

 

— Laverne Cox, chatting with Vulture about her reaction to becoming the first transgender Emmy nominee for her splendid work on Orange is the New Black

      Girl, I’m so happy for you and all the nominees. Though I never did watch the show. I’m much more of a “House of Cards” person myself.

      @masc4masc: Dude do you ever tire of being such a piece of sh!t? You seriously need a punch in the face, or two, or three, or four……

      @Xzamilloh: Now, now, there’s that angry black man emerging again. Name-calling is against the ToS here. Please try to civilize yourself if you insist on being here.

      @DerekR: LOL! Sorry, it’s just the uncontrollable chuckle I get out of the hypersensitive trying to act iTough. You won’t be the one to deliver said punches, so don’t even worry about it, buddy.

      Bravo to her. To those who have problems with it, I have to wonder, what the hell does this have to do with your life? Is this stopping you from living your life in any way? I have no time for militant political correctness, but I don’t feel it necessary to be a dick either. Refering to someone by their preferred pronoun is not bringing a damper on my day. I don’t even watch this show, and I hope she wins.

      @masc4masc: Howz about you give me the opportunity, as in reveal where the anonymous toxic P.O.S lives and your name, and I will gladly show you just how iTough I am. Or better yet, and even easier for a coward anonymous troll, my name is Derek Roberts, and I live in Pearl River, New York, if you are ever in the area look me up. Please!

      I think it’s great that Orange is the New Black actually has a trans woman playing a trans woman and all, but let’s be honest. Laverne Cox is a terrible, terrible actress. She couldn’t deliver a line if her life depended on it. I find it rather insulting that she’d actually get a nomination. Clearly pandering.

      @DerekR: Oh no, not an empty iThreat from an angry homosexual! The terror!! I’m shaking. Really. Like uncontrollably. I mean, if ever I’m in some podunk town in NY and happen to find this person with this extremely common first and last name, I might just be in…in…in absolutely no danger whatsoever. =P

      @truckproductions: Winning by way of merit is a thing of the past. It’s all politics and pity these days. Geoff B’s comment is a perfect example. Doesn’t even care that he’s never seen Laverne act, he just wants him to win. Same way ’12 Years a Slave’ won best picture even though some Academy members admitted they didn’t even watch it. I’d say Laverne should get his speech ready.

      @masc4masc: Yeah, I hope she wins. So what of it? With all the crap rained upon her and others like her, yeah, it’s nice to see someone who is truly an underdog in life win. If for nothing else to piss people like you off. BTW, the Academy has a huge pool to choose from. Why do you so quickly assume she is not worthy of being nominated?

      @Geoff B: Sorry to disappoint you, but it won’t piss me off if he wins. I’ve already congratulated him on his nomination, and I don’t even really watch award shows. More power to him, but like truck already pointed out, his acting isn’t that great. He’s a pity pick.

      @masc4masc: Are you intentionally being a douche bag by using called Laverne by male pronouns? Quite frankly it’s more childish than offensive.

      @whatisthis: That first sentence should have read “Are you intentionally being a douche by using male pronounce in reference to Laverne?”

      I sense a great opportunity for Queerty to host a fund raiser “All Star iTough Boxing Match”

      @whatisthis: One more try, buddy, you almost had it that 2nd time. Maybe also refrain from profanity/name-calling if you plan to call someone else’s behavior childish, yes?

      @masc4masc: First of all, I typed that on my phone and given this site’s shitty user experience, I apologize for my typos. Also, I’m sorry that your feelings were so hurt from me saying what we were all thinking.

      Protip: stop trying to provoke reactions like mine by acting like an ass and maybe people will start to see some good in you. You do want to be seen as more than someone who has no consideration for others’ feelings, right?

      @whatisthis: Wrong! Don’t care how you see me. Just pointing out your hypocrisy. You can use whatever “pronounce” you want to describe this man.
