Inciting the rage the rabid Beyhive calls for a drink. Following Beyonce fans' torrent of "Becky with the good hair"-taunting bee and lemon emojis, similarly named celebrities Rachael Ray and Rachel Roy self medicated with copious amounts of wine. US Weekly reports that following the release of Beyonce's visual album Lemonade the Rach(a)els exchanged gifts.

"Rachel [Roy] sent me flowers and I sent her a bottle, a big bottle of wine and a straw," Ray tells the magazine. "[I was going to send Roy] Brunello di Montalcino, where I was married, but I said for our office to ask her office if she drinks red and if she didn't drink red, to send Grande Dame." She adds, "I don't know actually which one she got. I wrote the card and she got the straw and the booze."

Ray says that this isn't the first time that she's been confused with Roy, noting that she once picked up the designer's dry cleaning by accident. Overall, Ray seems to find the post-Lemonade confusion entertaining. "[It was] hilarious. I thought it was the coolest thing ever!" Fans and the media widely speculated that Roy was the Becky who allegedly had an affair with Jay Z —€” rumors that were partially fueled by a post that appeared to reference Lemonade on the designer's Instagram account.

The visual album caused a spike in the use of bee and lemon emojis on Twitter. Meanwhile, Beyonce is continuing to take over the world by investing in a beverage company that surprisingly does not distribute lemonade.
