Oh boy, I hope Iggy Azalea has protection from the Beyhive, because I’m sure they are on the way.

The Australian rapper told a fan on twitter to never call her “Becky” because it is a stereotype against white women.

“It was used as a play on brain and Brian,” Azalea replied to another Twitter user. “You would not be down if I started calling all black men Deshawns.”

The rapper, who said she was a “runaway slave master,” in her song “D.R.U.G.S.” (She later aplogized and said the bars at the begining of the song where meant to be homage to Kendrick Lamar’s “Look Out For Detox”) compared the use of Becky to other “steroypical names that are meant offend different races and ethnic backgrounds.

“Generalizing ANY race by calling them one sterotypical name for said race. i personally dont think is very cool, the end.” Azalea wrote. “I don’t care. Don’t call all Asian women ‘Ming Lee.’ Don’t call white women ‘Becky.’ Don’t call black women ‘Sha Nay Nay.”

When Twitter users tried to twist Iggy’s words, she explained what “Becky” means to her and that her statements were not directed at Beyoncé.

“Girl bye,” Azalea fired back at one user. “Do you know how many time ppl have called me Becky? It didn’t have any kind of positive intention behind it. Don’t start..”

“And by the way, this is not Bey shade. I love her and the album.”
