Laverne Cox Receives a Christmas Gift From Beyonce & Reacts Accordingly — PHOTO
Leave it to Beyoncé to one-up Kim Kardashian. While the Kardashians nixed their annual Christmas card, Queen Bey still sent out an amazing season's greetings. (Unfortunately, I'm still waiting for mine to arrive — she must've misplaced my address!) Orange is the New Black actress Laverne Cox shared the holiday gift Beyoncé sent her in an Instagram collage. Apparently the package was so overwhelmingly awesome that Cox fell to the floor in excitement. I mean, how else would a person react to this kind of honor? I probably would've shed a tear. Besides an acceptance letter to Hogwarts, a holiday card from Bey is the greatest possible thing anyone could receive in the mail.
So what did Santa Claus — aka Beyoncé — send? Cox received a green "Cake by the pound" sweatshirt. (Note: If you're feeling incredibly jealous, you can always buy one for yourself on Bey's website! They're $65 and you can just pretend you got it as a gift.) Along with the sweatshirt, there's also a note signed "Love, Beyoncé." And of course, "HAPPY HOLIDAYS" was typed in standard Beyoncé font.
In the caption, Cox expressed her gratitude and admits to being a longtime fan:
Thanks Bey for the gift. I have had an awesome year and this is certainly a highlight. Happy holidays Mrs. Carter to you and your beautiful family. Thanks for all the amazing music and endless inspiration you've given to me and so many over the past 16 years. Since No No No I have been saying YASSS YASSS YASSS! #QueenBey foever.
So sweet! Since it's fun to imagine, here's a recreation of what it must've been like for Cox to receive Bey's gift in the mail.
It was an ordinary day as Laverne flipped through her mail.
Ugh, bills. Catalogues. Boring!
But then she looked down and saw a familiar name...
Wait, what does that say?
Yup, the card was signed "Beyoncé."
Signed *with love* from B.
At first, Laverne reacted with disbelief.
Is this real life?!
Then she felt pretty great about it.
"Duh, I deserve this."
And celebrated by dancing like this!
Because it's the only appropriate reaction to such a great gift.
