On Saturday, Beyoncé released her new "visual album," Lemonade, and people couldn't help but notice that many of the lyrics are about getting cheating on. The song "Sorry," in particular, has the lines: "Looking at my watch, he shoulda been home / Today I regret the night I put that ring on / He always got them fucking excuses." And at the end, a line where Queen Bey sings, "He better call Becky with the good hair." Not too subtle.
On Sunday, designer Rachel Roy posted a photo on her Instagram account (which she's since made private), with the caption, "Good hair don't care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens."
So it definitely seemed to some like Rachel Roy was outing herself as "Becky," which maybe wasn't too surprising, since she was rumored to have had an affair with Jay Z (remember when Beyoncé's sister Solange was seen yelling at both Roy and Jay Z at the Met Gala on May 5?).
Naturally, Beyoncé's fans assembled and went after the woman responsible for causing trouble with the world's favorite power couple. The problem is that they accidentally began leaving furious comments (and the lemon emoji) on Instagram pictures posted by the famous TV chef Rachael Ray instead.
People expressed their confusion on Twitter.

Meanwhile, Rachel Roy, who also received her fair share of hateful messages, tweeted:
I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.— Rachel Roy (@Rachel_Roy) April 24, 2016
That's totally true. But another thing that shouldn't be tolerated is outing yourself as "Becky" when you could have just kept quiet. You knew who you were messing with. Don't troll the Beyhive if you don't want to get stung.
