When Blake Lively posted a questionable Instagram caption, the response on social media ranged from angry, to supportive, to hilarious, to indifferent.
The pregnant, 28-year-old actress came under fire for a recent Instagram post captioned with a line from Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back” that reads “L.A. face with an Oakland booty.” The side-by-side picture shows Lively posing on the Cannes Film Festival red carpet, flaunting her baby bump in one photo and her backside in the other.
The post has received over 620,000 likes as well as a flood of comments, with some saying the caption is racially insensitive. The reaction on Twitter was swift and unforgiving for the most part.
Lively did have some supporters, however, who thought it was no big deal.
Some just chose to poke fun at the situation…
…while others couldn’t care less
Lively hasn’t yet responded to the criticism.
