Clearly, there aren't enough Rachels in Hollywood these days.

Talk-show host and famous chef Rachael Ray felt the wrath from Beyonce fans all around the world this weekend. But as it turns out, all the anger and attacks were directed at the wrong person. The likely target is none other than designer Rachel Roy.

It all started Saturday night when Beyonce released "Lemonade," her sixth studio album, on Tidal. In one of the songs titled "Sorry," Jay Z's leading lady sings about a cheating lover with the words, "He only want me when I'm not there / He better call Becky with the good hair."

While nobody was (and is) 100 percent sure who Becky is, some started to speculate that it's Roy, the fashion designer. After all, her Instagram post that has since been deleted didn't do her any favors.

"Good hair don't care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always," she cryptically wrote on Instagram following the release of the album. "Live in the light #NoDramaQueens."

According to reports at the time, Roy had spurred a confrontation between Beyonce's husband Jay Z and her sister Solange Knowles in a hotel elevator in 2014. Leaked surveillance video of the incident went viral.

Perhaps it was an act of rage. Maybe people were just hangry. Regardless, followers began swarming Ray's social media platforms with lemonade emoji's and plenty of not-so-nice comments.

"30 minute meal hoe," one wrote on Sunday afternoon. Another added, "Go caramelize SOME onions." Wait, is that really an insult because we're pretty sure Ray would enjoy it?

"Oh I loved hot chicken fajitas but I will never make them again after what you did you did to the Queen," wrote another user.

If you're not surprised by the news, perhaps this will put you over the edge.

BuzzFeed pointed out that Black Lives Matter activist DeRay McKesson – who is one of just 10 people Beyonce follows on Twitter – was confused by the Rachels.

As a result, he tweeted, "I thought Rachel Roy was Rachel Ray. I've never heard of Rachel Roy. I thought it was a typo."

Rachael Ray has not responded to the case of mistaken identity.
