Blake Lively Captioned A Photo With A “Baby Got Back” Lyric And People Are Pissed
"Another day, another rich white woman using WOC's bodies as a punchline and commodity."
Blake Lively posted a photo to Instagram on Tuesday of her at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival with the caption “L.A. face with an Oakland booty”.
The caption is a lyric from Sir-Mix-a-Lot's '90s hit "Baby Got Back" and is essentially a way of saying that someone has a good face and a good figure.
Many found the line problematic coming from a straight, wealthy, white celebrity and they took to Twitter to vent their frustrations.
Earlier this week Lively made headlines when she told the L.A. Times that she believes Woody Allen is "empowering to women".
And this isn't the first time that Lively's been called out for being problematic. In 2012 she married Ryan Reynolds on an ex-slave plantation.
So, Blake, maybe it's time to step away from social media. This is all just a big mess.
