Just when we thought this couldn’t get any crazier! Beyoncé’s unforgiving fan base misidentified TV chef Rachael Ray as fashion designer Rachel Roy, who recently hinted that she’s the woman referred to as “Becky” in Queen Bey’s new song.
The 34-year-old entertainer released her new album, Lemonade, on Saturday, April 23, immediately after debuting the accompanying visual album film on HBO. In one of the tracks, titled “Sorry,” Beyoncé slams her cheating lover for hooking up with a woman that she simply calls “Becky.”
“He better call Becky with the good hair,” she scornfully croons.
Roy, who was reportedly the cause of Bey’s hubby Jay Z and sister Solange Knowles’ infamous elevator fight in May 2014, took to Instagram shortly after the special premiered and hinted that she’s the woman Beyoncé was referring to.
Unfortunately, some members of the Beyhive swarmed to the wrong Rach. The 30 Minute Meals host’s Instagram comments quickly filled up with lemon and bee emojis, in addition to some pretty nasty messages.
“Throwing your cookbook in the trash!” one user wrote, while another commented on a picture of a gourmet cheeseburger, writing, “I bet that’s exactly what you were whipping up in Jay Z’s kitchen while Beyoncé was out performing.”
A few fans caught onto their mistake and begged the others to leave Ray alone. “Stop coming for poor Rachael Ray,” one comment read. “She just wants to make brunch she’s not Rachel Roy.”
Ray has yet to comment on the fiasco that’s currently going down on her social media account. Roy, on the other hand, tweeted on Sunday, saying, “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
