Poor Rachael Ray. Can you imagine being the celebrity chef on Sunday, just minding your own business when all of a sudden your Instagram is filled with bee and lemon emojis from angry Beyoncé fans vowing to stop eating your tacos? It must've been very confusing.
As you probably know, Beyonce revealed her "Lemonade" short film/visual album Saturday night on HBO. One song lyric seemed to reference her husband Jay Z cheating, with Bey saying, "He better call Becky with the good hair." That initially just turned into a lot of Becky jokes, and insults to Jay Z, but then fashion designer Rachel Roy got involved.
There were already rumors that Rachel Roy was the woman behind the whole Met Gala fight with Beyonce's sister Solange, and Roy further inserted herself in the mix early Sunday morning with a cryptic post that was interpreted by many fans as a confession that she is the good-haired Becky:
Rachel Roy's Instagram was flooded with bees, Beyoncé's "hive" of fans in action. She set her Instagram to private after that, and tweeted a message against bullies:
I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn't be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.

But the most unintentionally hilarious thing is how many people thought it was Rachael Ray, not Rachel Roy, and attacked the chef's profile instead.

People leave Rachael Ray alone. She literally might be trying to make #Lemonade, & she's not Rachel ROY.

To avoid future confusion, maybe fans should stick to just calling out Jay Z and leave all alleged "other women" out of it.
