Iggy Azalea Fires Back at Beyonce for Using Racial Term “Becky” in Lemonade


It didn’t take long for Iggy Azalea to find herself in another Twitter controversy, and this time she stepped in it for calling out Beyoncé’s use of ‘Becky’ as being racist towards white women.

Oh geez! Iggy Azalea, 25, just had to go there and called out a fan for calling her a “Becky,” but in the process she dissed Beyonce, 34, for using the term in her lyric about husband Jay Z‘s alleged cheating. The Aussie rapper claims that anyone calling a white girl a “Becky” is not cool, and Iggy won’t tolerate that name being thrown her way.

“Generalizing any race by calling them one stereotypical name for said race. I personally don’t think it’s very cool, the end,” Iggy added. The use of “Becky” as a derogatory term for white women has suddenly come up thanks to Bey’s lyric off her new album Lemonade where she sings, “He only want me when I’m not there. He better call Becky with the good hair, the lyrics read.
