Let’s get this out of the way: Beyoncé’s Lemonade has nothing to do with Iggy Azalea. But the Australian rapper somehow managed to make it about her.

It seems as though Iggy has a problem with white women being referred to as “Becky.” In a Twitter rant, she compared the name to a black woman being called “Sheneneh” or an Asian woman being called “Ming Lee.”

I’m going to need Azalea to step away from Urban Dictionary and listen to Sir Mix-a-Lot. The only Becky that matters is the one who was jealous of the woman with the big butt.

I get it. Azalea has been called “Becky” a lot. But that’s definitely better than “Below-Subpar Rapper.”
