Life was nothing short of perfect for gorgeous Hollywood actor Blake Lively only until she decided to post a stellar picture of her behind but with a controversial caption. She quoted Sir Mix-A-Lot’s song ‘Baby Got Back’s’ line ‘LA face with an Oakland booty’, sending the social media peeps in a rage for its ‘racist’ connotations.
Lively posted side-by-side front and back shots of herself on the red carpet in Cannes, France. The post has received more than 600,000 likes, but is also generating a flurry of comments. Some commenters say that her post is racially insensitive.
People magazine reported last month that the 28-year-old Lively is expecting her second child with husband, actor Ryan Reynolds. Her film Cafe Society made its premiere at Cannes last week.
An email sent to her representatives was not immediately returned but Lively still has not removed the picture from the image-sharing website.
