We wouldn’t be surprised if those with the given name Rachel or Becky have gone into some sort of witness protection program after Beyoncé released her new visual album, “Lemonade,” over the weekend.
A particular lyric, in which Bey calls out “Becky with the good hair” for allegedly cheating with her husband, Jay Z, has ignited a social media firestorm, resulting in the Beyhive accusing Rachel Roy (and accidentally Rachael Ray) and Rita Ora of being the “Becky” in question.
But some are taking the comparison in jest, making lemons out of lemonade (too soon?) by posting Becky-inspired memes. Lori Loughlin, whose “Full House” character Rebecca Donaldson Katsopolis goes by Becky in the series, shared an old photo of herself on Monday to poke fun at the controversy. So #hip, right?
Rachael Ray, who was mistaken for designer Rachel Roy on social media, also responded to the lyric in her own way by showcasing her type of lemonade. The shade is real, and it’s subtle.
“Shake up your Sunday with @ChefDPhillips’ lemon shake-up with lemonade lavender ice cubes,” the caption for the photo posted on Ray’s cooking series’ account read.
OK, so we know there are a lot of Beckys out here, but let’s get real for a second. After looking at all the evidence, it’s clear that the Becky Beyoncé is referencing is obviously Taylor Swift’s alter ego.
