SMDH: Laverne Cox Finally Revealed Her Boyfriend To The World, And Some Folks Had To Throw Shade

She's gushing about her new man.

Published April 10th

Laverne Cox recently shared the exciting story of how she and her new man met, and after teasing her fans with the adorable moment, she officially decided to reveal him to the world. 

After explaining that she and her new bae met on Tinder nine months ago, the Orange Is the New Black star posted a selfie of them, together, in bed.

The lovey-dovey pic, which she posted to her Instagram Story, showed the two getting cozy with the actress rocking lingerie and her man going bare-chested. She completed the post with several red heart emojis, letting her followers know it's real.

So cute!

Take a look, below:

  1. As expected, the photo was met with criticism from several trolls who were either "disapproving" of her being with a white man or, unfortunately, flat out transphobic.

  2. Despite the sporadic race-fueled and ignorant comments, several of Cox's supporters came to her defense, showing that there was more love that hate for their fave's new relationship.

  3. Congratulations on your new love, Laverne!
