After being bombarded with bee emojis, fashion designer Rachel Roy has issued a statement, that she hopes will put all the cheating rumors to rest.
“I want to put the speculation and rumors to rest. My Instagram post was meant to be fun and lighthearted, it was misunderstood as something other than that,” she said in a statement to PEOPLE. “There is no validity to the idea that the song references me personally. There is no truth to the rumors.”
Since the image Roy, 42, and her daughter who she shares with ex Dame Dash, have both been victims of the Beyhive’s wrath.
“Consequently, online haters have targeted me and my daughters in a hurtful and scary manner, including physical threats. As a mother – and I know many mothers would agree – I feel that bullying in any form is harmful and unacceptable,” she continued. “I would hope that the media sees the real issue here – the issue of cyber bullying – and how it should not be tolerated by anyone.”
On Saturday (Apr 23), Beyonce released her visual album ‘Lemonade.’ At the end of the song, “Sorry,” she sings, “He better call Becky with the good hair,” twice. Around the same time the lyrics put fans on the hunt to track down side chick who inspired Bey’s line, Roy Instagrammed a photo that seemed to reference the song.
“Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always,” she captioned in the now-deleted picture of her with a friend. “Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
