Beyonce fans were quick to slam the mysterious woman Queen Bey references on her album “Lemonade,” in which she seemingly reveals that husband Jay Z cheated on her. But, unfortunately, fans targeted — and threatened — the wrong woman.
“Lemonade” dropped on HBO Saturday, and since then social media has been crackling over the current state of Beyonce and Jay Z’s marriage, as well as centering on fashion designer Rachel Roy being “Becky with the good hair,” a lyric on Beyonce’s new album.
Roy added fuel to the fire when she posted a photo to her Instagram (which is now private) just a few hours after “Lemonade” aired, captioning the photo, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Roy had been previously been attached to rumors that Jay Z cheated on his wife back in 2014. At the time, many tabloids even reported that Roy was the reason Solange Knowles attacked him in the elevator of Manhattan’s Standard Hotel.
However, Food Network star Rachael Ray is being targeted by angry Beyhivers instead of Roy, with many taking to her Instagram to post lemon emojis or threats that they will never watch Ray’s show again.
“Oh I loved hot chicken fajitas but I will never make them again after what you did you did to the Queen,” wrote one user. Many rushed to the defense of Ray, writing that fans were attacking the wrong Rachel/Rachael.
On Sunday, Roy took to Twitter to defend herself.
“I respect love, marriages, families and strength,” she posted. “What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
