Laverne Cox wore a skimpy lingerie set as she danced around to Cardi B’s raunchy smash hit “WAP” while celebrating empowered women in a video posted to her Instagram page.
The Orange Is the New Black actor showed off her toned body in the silky black two-piece set. The tiny top featured two thin straps over one shoulder and showed off a large amount of underboob, while the barely there briefs displayed Laverne’s toned stomach.
The TV star rocked out in the sexy clip, as she confidently twirled and posed for the camera, and tossed her loose blond locks around the room to dramatic effect. She used an edgy filter for her post that showed the star in grayscale, with a neon color pop backdrop. A neon sign could be seen on the wall behind Cox as she danced in front of a table and chairs.
In her caption, the trans activist explained that “WAP” hitting No. 1 in America made her want to pay tribute to pioneering female artists and people who had experienced misogyny.
A number of famous faces took to the comments section to share their appreciation for the attention-grabbing post.
“I just fainted. Thank you for blessing the timeline,” commented actor Halle Berry, who added two hearts to the end of her admiring words.
“COME THRUUUUUUU,” wrote Scandal star Kerry Washington, alongside seven fire emoji.
Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger commented with three flame emoji, while actor Gabrielle Union shared six black hearts under the fierce clip.
While Laverne made it clear she was a big fan of “WAP” since its August 7 release, Cardi B’s risqué single — which features Megan Thee Stallion — has been the subject of much controversy, as The Inquisitr previously covered. California congressional candidate James Bradley took to Twitter to say the track “made me want to pour holy water in my ears” and said he “felt sorry” for young girls “if this is their role model.”

There was also sizable backlash over Cardi’s decision to include Kylie Jenner in the music video for the hit single. The Inquisitr reported that the rapper was forced to defend herself when fans started a petition to have the reality star erased from the eye-catching video. While a slew of other famous names featured, fans took issue with the fact that Kylie was the only non-artist present and said her appearance was tantamount to cultural appropriation.
