We’re not sure how exactly the Orange is the New Black actress messed this up, but the activist did in fact say:
“Ladies and gentleman, all my gender non-binary people watching tonight, eight-time Grammy award winners and six-time Grammy winner, Lady Gaga.”
Oh man. Obviously, fans of the legendary rock band DRAGGED the 32-year-old on Twitter for the on stage hiccup (below).
Metallica thing is pissing me off. Laverne Cox doesn’t intro, then mic doesn’t work. That’s a legendary band. No respect paid by Grammys.

So Laverne cox forgot to introduce Metallica and the sound crew forgets to turn on their mic’s… Where’s the respect?

Harsh. Of course, Mix Cox felt TERRIBLY about the blunder as she too took to the social media site and wrote:
Whomp, whomp. It probably didn’t help that the band’s fans were already in a bad mood due to technical issues Metallica faced during their performance.
Hopefully this EPIC fail doesn’t get Laverne blacklisted from presenting at future award shows. Fingers crossed!
