Blake Lively Faced Online

Blake Lively
Was Blake Lively trying to stir the hornet's nest by trying to be controversial and ... racist?

The actress has come under fire on social media after she posted a picture of herself at the Cannes Film Festival with a caption suggesting that "she had the face of a white woman but the behind of a woman of color."

Lively, 28, who is pregnant with her second child, shared red carpet pictures from the premiere of her new film "Cafe Society" to her Instagram account last 17 May.

However, some fans took offence to her chosen caption for pictures: "L.A. face with an Oakland booty."

The caption is a line from the 1992 Sir Mix-a-Lot song "Baby Got Back." The term refers to a woman whose face looks like she is from Los Angeles, while her behind looks like she is from neighboring Californian city Oakland, which has historically been a poorer area, with a high African-American population.
