Now this is truly making Lemonade out of lemons.
Lori Loughlin and Rachael Ray have both taken to Instagram to hilariously address Queen Bey’s now-infamous “Becky with the good hair” line in her new track “Sorry.”
Loughlin, 51, who famously played Becky Donaldson-Katsopolis on Full House and Fuller House, posted a still from her days on Full House in the ’90s as “Aunt Becky,” with “Becky with the good hair” labeled across the photo. The actress humorously captioned the meme, “Wasn’t me. #beckywiththegoodhair #lemonade.”
Meanwhile, TV chef Ray, 47, who Beyoncé’s Beyhive erroneously attacked instead of fashion designer Rachel Roy, was more subtle in her response. As previously reported, the Rachael Ray Show host was besieged by Beyoncé fans on social media after it was speculated that “Becky” is Roy, 42, whose name is only a few letters off from Ray’s.
From the official Rachael Ray Show Instagram account, the culinary star shared, what else, but an idea for serving lemonade. “Shake up your Sunday with @ChefDPhillips’ lemon shake-up with lemonade lavender ice cubes,” the ‘gram read. “#RachaelRay #RachaelRayShow.”
The other Rach(a)el — Roy — hinted that she was “Becky” when she posted a photo of herself and a few gal pals on Sunday, April 24, one day after HBO debuted Beyonce’s Lemonade, a visual album that touched upon the topic of infidelity and appeared to take the lid off of the superstar’s notoriously private marriage with Jay Z.
“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens,” Roy captioned the now-deleted pic, a seemingly obvious reference to Bey’s controversial lyric.
Since she spoke out, the Beyhive has accused Roy of having an inappropriate relationship with Beyoncé’s husband, 46, with whom the “Formation” singer, 34, shares her 4-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy.
For her part, Roy has denied claims that she’s “Becky” in a statement, via People.
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” Roy’s statement reads. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
“Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother — and I know many mothers would agree — I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable,” she continues. “I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”
