The Beyhive Accuses Designer Rachel Roy Of Being “Becky With The Good Hair”

Beyonce's 'Lemonade'
Her second visual album (a surprise, mostly) has arrived on TIDAL — listen and watch.

“He only want me when I’m not there / He better call Becky with the good hair,” Beyoncé sings in her song “Sorry.”

This is one of the most incriminating lyrics off LEMONADE, which Beyoncé released on April 23. Throughout, she reflects on the strong black women who raised her and the men who have wronged them all. (Has anyone seen Jay Z?) So when designer Rachel Roy appeared to out herself as Becky, the Beyhive swarmed in.

“Good hair don’t care,” Rachel said on Instagram, “but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always.” Because of how the Beyhive inundated her mentions with 🍋s and 🐝s, she has since made her account private.

Back in 2014, Wendy Williams wondered if Rachel was why Solange fought Jay Z in that elevator. All Beyoncé had to say at the time was, “Of course sometimes shit goes down when there’s a billion dollars on an elevator.”

Rachel has since spoken up on Twitter. “I respect love, marriages, families and strength,” she said. “What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.” See both social media posts below.
