The Beyhive got all worked up last night after a few fans thought they spotted Beyonce Knowles in the stands at the US Open. The only problem: it wasn't her.
Nope, instead viewers mistook "Orange Is the New Black" star Laverne Cox -- who was wearing a black mask which covered half her face at the event -- as the "Renaissance" superstar.
Shortly after Cox appeared on television, a clip of her from the stands at Serena Williams' match wound up on Twitter, mistakenly captioned, "#Beyonce at the #USOpen." The original video has now been seen nearly 150,000 times, with more than 5,000 likes and around 800 retweets and quote tweets combined.
Someone eventually posted a shot of Cox's own Instagram Story from the event, proving Laverne was the one in the footage and not Queen Bey. "I got to excited to see #Beyoncé and though it was her, my bad," the original poster admitted, "it's @LaverneCox."
"My bad.. I wasn't trying to be funny I promise," they added.
