All love! Becky G clapped back after social media trolls accused her of throwing shade at Selena Gomez.

The “La Respuesta” singer, 22, raised eyebrows on Wednesday, July 24, when she joked about Gomez’s lyrics in the DJ Snake collaboration while playing Seventeen magazine’s “Lyric Challenge” game.

“Oh, I know this one. I’ll never forget this one because when I heard it I was a little confused because it says, ‘Come in the party / Have a fiesta / Blow out the candles and have a siesta,’” Becky said. “But I don’t want to have a siesta in the middle of the fiesta. Like, I want to party. I wouldn’t take a nap, you know what I’m saying?”

Some Selenators assumed Becky was “dragging” Gomez, 27, with her remarks, which she quickly denied.

“I have always loved & supported a true queen like Sel,” she tweeted on Thursday, July 25. “To cut a snippet of a video & take it completely out of context is what is so wrong about this ‘Stan’ culture. Sad to see yet another ‘fan’ going against what their favorite artist believes in by putting other females down.”
