Blake Lively in in hot waters (again) after captioning her latest Instagram photo with a lyric from Sir-Mix-a-Lot‘s ’90s smash hit “Baby Got Back“.
The actress posted a photo of herself in a body-hugging gown that showed off her incredible figure at the Cannes Film Festival 2016, with the caption: “L.A. face with an Oakland booty“. Check out her post.
The Interned was not happy about Blake’s caption. In fact, everyone got very angry with Lively and they did not hold back.
Some users found it a big problem that this caption came from a white, wealthy celebrity.
Another day, another rich white woman using WOC's bodies as a punchline and commodity. As if Blake Lively wasn't the worst already.

Others found it “gross” and also wanted to point out how inaccurate it actually was.

She even lost some fans.
Wow I'm so disappointed in myself for liking Blake Lively. You can never trust the whites.

Others remembered Lively saying that she believes that Woody Allen “empowers women” and brought that into the scandal as well.
@blakelively instead of your Oakland booty tell us more about how Woody Allen empowers women and the abuse allegations are not your business

They also called her out for getting married on an ex-slave plantation. Her 2012 wedding to Ryan Reynolds took place at Boone Hall Plantation and Gardens.
What do you think of Blake Lively’s caption: offensive or harmless?
