Amid the backlash surrounding the fashion designer, Rachel Roy has cancelled a scheduled public appearance.
The stylist was scheduled to give remarks at a "Mastering Your Métier" event in New York City Monday evening organized by NeueHouse. However, as reported by BuzzFeed, those who had confirmed their attendance received the following email today:
"Due to a personal emergency, Rachel Roy has had to cancel this evening's event. Our apologies for any inconvenience."
While the specifics of that personal emergency remain unknown, it is easy to speculate the sudden absence is connected to this weekend's controversy tying her to Beyoncé's newest album.
