Iggy isn't happy.

While many fans continue to hunt down the identity of Beyonce’s “Becky with the good hair”, Iggy Azalea has claimed that the reference is actually a negative racial stereotype. 

Some fans believe Beyonce made reference to Jay Z cheating with a cryptic line about ‘Becky’ on her new album ‘Lemonade’

However Iggy says using the term is an unnecessary generalisation, similar to calling all black women “Sha nay nay” or all Asian women “Ming Lee”.

She also claims that the name Becky is used as a euphemism for white girls’ love for oral sex and attempted to clarify that she is not throwing shade at Beyonce. 

Check out Iggy’s rant below: 

Meanwhile, a number of women have been forced to deny that they aren’t “Becky” including Rachel Roy and Rita Ora.
