Rachel Roy caught heat following an Instagram post that some believed proved she was "Becky with the good hair."
The drama and mystery around Beyoncé’s Becky with the good hair lyric in “Sorry” may never die down.
It seems, according to the Daily Mail, in an interview with Grazia, Dame Dash slammed Beyoncé and Jay Z for not defending Rachel Roy after she received tons of criticism following a photo she posted on Instagram with the caption, “Good hair don’t care, but we will take good lighting, for selfies, or self truths, always. Live in the light #nodramaqueens.”
Fans of Bey took the photo as proof that Roy was in fact Becky with the good hair. The fashion designer has since denied the rumors. However, Roy, who is the ex-wife of Dame Dash, and their daughters still received tons of online abuse.

Dash reportedly stated in his interview that the husband-wife duo should have stepped in when his kids began receiving threats and harassment.
“They are cowards. They should have stepped up and said something.” Dash added, “Adults can go and harass a kid on behalf of an R & B singer? The trolls should have been put in jail for that, it was crazy.”
When asked if Jay and Rachel had ever had a relationship, Dash reportedly gave this cryptic response:
“I don’t care what Rachel did, I don’t agree with a lot of things she does.”
In August, Roy was a victim of a hack that LAPD investigators believe was a result of the abuse she received online. According to TMZ, Roy and the LAPD believe members of the BeyHive are to blame.
