Blake Lively Has Been Slammed For Being ‘Racially Insensitive’ On Instagram

People are not one bit happy about the caption on her latest pic.

Yesterday Blake Lively posted this seemingly innocent snap to her Instagram from the Cannes Film Festival red carpet.

L.A. face with an Oakland booty

A nice pic flaunting Blake’s enviable curves and gorgeously good features, we think you’ll agree.

But it was her choice of caption that’s caused a bit of controversy.

You see, the words ‘LA face with an Oakland booty” come from the 1992 Sir Mix-A-Lot hit Baby Got Back. Basically it’s refers to a woman whose face makes her look like she’s from LA (which is predominately white) and a booty that makes her look like she’s from Oakland, a neighbouring city in California, which has a large African-American population.

Not surprisingly, Twitter was quick to react to Blake’s questionable caption:


While others reckoned it was totally NBD.
