Rachel Roy and Rita Ora have found themselves on the wrong end of some very angry Beyoncé fans.
After Beyoncé dropped her new visual album, Lemonade, on April 23, fans of the superstar have been speculating that it could be either Roy or Ora who inspired the track “Sorry” in which Beyoncé alludes to a cheating husband.
Although Beyoncé has yet to confirm rumors that Jay Z was unfaithful, that hasn’t stopped her fans, who call themselves the Beyhive, from swarming on both Rachel Roy and Rita Ora, who they believe could be the “Becky with the good hair” Beyoncé claims the cheater needs to call in the Lemonade track “Sorry.”
Beyoncé fans blasted both Roy and Ora on social media since the visual album dropped, leaving scathing comments across the fashion designer and pop star’s various social media accounts. But just who is “Becky”?
According to MTV News, a number of fans accused Rita Ora of being the supposed “other woman” after she dropped what appeared to be a serious hint with her choice of underwear on Snapchat.
The site reported that Rita took to Snapchat to show off her bra with that featured two lemons just days before Beyoncé dropped Lemonade, which had a number of Beyoncé fans speculating that the “I Will Never Let You Down” singer may have gotten a little too close to the rapper.
Rumors previously swirled that Rita and Jay Z may have been more than just good friends, but Ora shot down those reports during an interview with Power 105.1’s The Breakfast Club in 2014.
“Don’t you dare disrespect Beyoncé like that ever again in your entire life,” Rita snapped back when quizzed about the rumored affair, “You should know better than that… that’s just straight up disrespect. You can’t even go there.”
But Rita Ora’s 2014 denial didn’t stop Beyoncé’s fans from accusing the star of being the already infamous “Becky.”
A slew of Beyoncé’s followers took over Rita’s social media accounts to post bee and lemon emojis, while other fans left some scathing comments on Ora’s Instagram photos.
“Pray I catch you whispering. Y’all h*** don’t understand,” @call_becky_with_that_good_hair commented on a photo Rita posted of herself on Instagram on April 24. “Y’all messing with husbands not boyfriends. But husbands h**.”
“Jay F***s u And then fires U wasn’t even a sidechick [just] a prostitute h** Rita w***ra didn’t u cheat on Rob with 20 men for fame ( that u never had ) f****** whore albanian woman are s***s,” @sejour1988 wrote in the comments of Rita’s photo.
Other Beyhive members accused Ora of posting the lemon bra photo to Snapchat as a publicity stunt.
“I’m not really a Beyoncé fan but she is someone I can sort of believe is Becky given the amount of connections she has despite not really accomplishing much when it comes to her music or lack thereof. People in the industry have even hinted that they think she slept her way to the top,” Instagram user @emilyschinella commented on the same snap.
“Even if she isn’t Becky, I wouldn’t put it past her to intentionally wear the same outfit as Beyoncé, given she probably loves milking the attention,” the fan continued. “Any attention is good attention for Rita no matter how bad.”
But while some fans took aim at Rita Ora, others turned their attention to fashion designer Rachel Roy.
As the Daily Beast reported, Beyoncé fans also blasted Roy after Beyoncé’s album dropped on April 23 after the designer also used social media to allegedly hint that she too could be the “Becky” Beyoncé sang about in “Sorry.”
Following Lemonade’s release, Rachel posted a photo of herself on Instagram which she captioned, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Beyoncé fans swarmed onto Rachel’s Instagram page to accuse the star of confirming an affair with Jay Z, causing Ray to change her Instagram account settings to private.
But that didn’t stop Beyoncé’s dedicated followers from blasting Rachel, as they quickly moved to Twitter.
“#LEMONADE #Beyoncé #Beyhive so Rachel Roy is Becky, and she’s proud that every man from roc-a-fella has ran through her. S**, s****, h**!” @LoveFinch tweeted, while @DimmaWest tweeted out, “@Rachel_Roy how can you as a person be so disgusting the sad truth is jay is no better y’all don’t deserve respect. You got what you wanted.”
Beyoncé fans pointed the finger at Rachel Roy after it was largely speculated that she was the one behind Solange Knowles’ infamous elevator attack on Jay Z in 2014.
At the time, Hollywood Life alleged that Rachel once got a little too close to Jay Z, causing Solange, Beyoncé’s sister, to unleash her frustrations.
“Rachel Roy came up to [Solange] in a confrontational way earlier in the night,” a source reportedly told the site in 2014, claiming that Knowles and Roy “had a long-standing feud.”
“Solange was defending Beyoncé in the elevator because Solange finds Jay’s friendship with Rachel to be WAY too close for comfort and it makes Solange very uncomfortable,” the insider continued. “Beyoncé also confronted Rachel and said, ‘Don’t talk to my sister like that,’ after [Rachel] confronted Solange.”
