Rachael Ray Attacked By The Beyhive; Beyonce Fans Mistake Celebrity Chef For Designer Rachel Roy
Beyonce recently dropped her new album Lemonade, which features numerous tracks that allude to getting cheating on – possibly by her husband Jay Z. Some members of her Internet fan group the Beyhive mistakenly trolled Rachael Ray‘s social media accounts instead of Jay Z’s rumored onetime mistress, designer Rachel Roy.

On Lemonade track “Sorry,” Beyonce sings, “He only want me when I’m not on there / He better call Becky with the good hair.” Those who’ve been following the ongoing are-they-aren’t-they divorce rumors that have long been swirling around Beyonce and Jay Z, believed that she must be referring to Roy. Roy, who was previously married to Damon Dash, has long been thought to have had an affair with Jay Z, and was alleged to be the reason why Solange was kicking the rapper in an elevator after the 2014 Met Gala.
Roy even seemed to confirm that she was “Becky with the good hair” on Instagram not long after Lemonade‘s release. “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths always,” she captioned a since-deleted picture of herself.

Despite Roy’s public reference to the controversy, Ray still took some heat, likely due to more people knowing who she is than Roy. The celebrity chef was probably surprised to find bee and lemon emojis – the Beyhive’s favored form of attack – taking over her comments and replies on social media. Wisely, Ray did not react to the trolling and continued to post food pictures.
The Beyhive, incidentally, has now set its sights on a new potential “other woman” – British singer Rita Ora. Ora, for her part, is doing nothing to quiet the rumors, stepping out Monday in the same red Gucci getup Beyonce wore for her “Formation” music video.
