The 50-year-old actress joked on Instagram on Monday, "Not me getting mistaken for @Beyonce at the #USOpen tonight, then trending on Twitter as the internet cackles over the mistaken identity."
At the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York City, the 50-year-old Inventing Anna star was seated in the audience while donning a face mask.
Laverne was mistaken for Beyoncé online and in match broadcasts due to her face mask, black sheer top, brown leather bottoms, and hoop earrings.
When the Daytime Emmy winner gushed, "You DESERVE!," her admirers laughed that she had "fooled" them. You could see the queen's aura coming from behind the mask.
When a Twitter user posted the video with the caption "Beyonce at the #USOpen," confusion ensued.
Cox gained notoriety earlier that day when video of her supporting Serena Williams while wearing a black face mask and silver hoops of jewellery went viral.
"The fact that this is Laverne Cox has me screaming," a fan clarified. "Baby, this is Laverne Cox," said another.
