Beyoncé Fans Are Confusing Rachael Ray With Rachel Roy

The Beyhive is letting loose its wrath on the EVOO lovin' chef's Instagram

Sorry Beyoncé fans, Rachael Ray is not Rachel Roy. For the record, she's also not Rachel Zoe, but you're getting warmer. As the Daily Dot first-reports, the release of Beyoncé's visual album Lemonade has put Rach(a)els of all spelling on high alert. TV's EVOO lovin' chef has received a deluge of criticism — including quite a few bee and lemon emojis — on her Instagram account since the album dropped.

Beyoncé's "Beyhive" appears to be confusing Ray with Rachel Roy. Fans believe Roy is the "Becky with the good hair" mentioned in the song "Apathy" and, thus, the woman with whom Jay Z allegedly had an affair. Confusing Ray with Roy is understandable. A few missing and mistaken letters could easily bring one to the conclusion that the cable TV chef is the same as the designer who allegedly inspired Bey's stinging lyrics. Many followers have since come to the defense of the sloppy Joe slingin' chef, telling the hive to buzz off.

Joking aside, online harassment (read: Any type of harassment) is never welcome or okay. Here, now, is a quick public service announcement that will help you get your Rach(a)els straight:

Rachael Ray:

-TV personality, chef, cookbook author

-Spells her first name with an "a" after the "h" and an "a" in the last name

-Once used the word "Eaties" in a sentence

-Blame her for introducing EVOO into the English lexicon

Rachel Roy:

-Spells her first name sans extra "a" and her last name with an "o"

-Is a fashion designer (Note: NOT Rachel Zoe)

-May have alluded to the "Becky with the good hair" line in an Instagram post over the weekend

Rather than spending your weekend harassing Rachels everywhere, sit back, relax and watch Queen Bey and the reigning Queen of Creole cuisine in Lemonade.
