Beyoncé fans have directed their misguided brand of internet mob justice to a new target.
In case you were under a rock this weekend, the 34-year-old diva released a surprise visual album called “Lemonade” this weekend.
The warm reception for the new music has been overshadowed by the vindictively protective reaction confessional song “Sorry” drew from fans.
The song crucially contains a lyric that has fans believing Jay-Z cheated on their Queen Bee with a certain “Becky.”
At first, the Beyhive, as the fans call themselves, ganged up on fashion designer Rachel Roy after she posted a baiting Instagram post.
She has since made her Instagram account private and tweeted: “I respect love, marriages, families and strength. What shouldn’t be tolerated by anyone, no matter what, is bullying, of any kind.”
Now, the mob of fans has turned its cruel intentions to British singer and actress Rita Ora.
All because she posted a Snapchat image of herself clad in a bra with lemons on it. Ora’s Instagram has since been flooded with emojis of lemons and some particularly hash words.
It is not yet exactly clear how any of this makes Roy or Ora a “Becky.”
