Why'd One Sheriff Put Prisoners Back In Stripes? Because Of This Emmy-Winning Show.
Actress and activist Laverne Cox is best known for playing Sophia on the Emmy-winning "Orange Is the New Black." The show is really funny, incredibly diverse, and shows a different perspective on women in prison while subtly calling the system out too. Sounds pretty good right? Well, in this GIF set, Laverne reflects on a comment by a prison warden* who's not a fan of the show.
*One tiny note! While Laverne refers to a prison warden, the comment was actually made by a sheriff out of Saginaw, Michigan. And yes, his prisoners are now in stripes. Le sigh.
