Laverne Cox has awkward red carpet encounter with deaf actress Marlee Matlin

Laverne became a hot topic of conversation on social media after she made a blunder while interviewing Marlee ahead of the show.

After asking the star, who communicates via sign language, a question, the transgender activist proceeded to pass her the microphone, rather than giving it to her interpreter.

Marlee handled it like a pro, and quickly handed the mic over to her interpreter – but people on X can’t stop talking about the interaction.

As celebrities make their way to the red carpet, demonstrators are waving flags and holding signs just outside – causing the LAPD to amp up its police presence in the area.

Several groups, including Film Workers for Palestine, have organized the protest because they believe Israel will attack Rafah in Gaza while the awards show is going on.

While some looked stunning on the red carpet, others missed the mark with fashion fails and sartorial nightmares.

Erika Alexander lead the pack in a a rather baffling gown that featured a simple white strapless silhouette – which would have been incredibly elegant, had it not been for the enormous black, purple, pink, and green tutu-style skirt that was strung around her waist, covering much of the simple dress design underneath.
