As the buzz surrounding Beyoncé’s latest album, Lemonade, and a particular lyric about "Becky with the good hair" continues, the rapper told her fans it's one name she never wants to be called. While she was quick to point out this she was not shading Bey, Iggy explained that the name was a slur to reference a generic Caucasian woman with long straight hair or the image of a "Valley Girl."
"Do you know how many times people have called me BECKY? It didn’t have any kind of positive intention behind it. Don’t start. "Generalizing ANY race by calling them one stereotypical name for said race. I personally dont think it's very cool, the end. "Don’t call all Asian women 'Ming Lee' don’t call white women 'Becky' don’t call black women 'sha nay nay.," she told another fan. She closed the subject with one final thought on the matter. "To be called a generalized name that gained popularity as a way to describe oral sex and then generally white women. No thanks." The slang has gained a lot of major attention as Bey used it in the song “Sorry”. Fans have interpreted this as a jab to fashion designer, Rachel Roy.
