Blake Lively inadvertently sent the Internet into frenzy when she posted a picture with a “controversial” caption. The actress shared a photo of both her front side and backside while dressed up for the Cannes film festival. Alongside the photo she included the caption, “L.A. face with an Oakland booty” – which is a line from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s hit song “Baby Got Back.” Unfortunately, some followers took offense to the caption, as they claimed that Blake was using women of color’s body shape as a punch line.
The bizarre part of this whole “scandal” is that both Khloe Kardashian and singer Katy Perry have used the lyric before on social media, yet Blake is the only one who has been hit with backlash. It seems as though the Internet is getting more and more sensitive to the content of social media posts
