Blake Lively has been criticised on Twitter for being ‘racially insensitive’.
The actress posted a split photo to her Instagram – one photo of her from the front, and one from behind. She captioned the snap of her on the Cannes red carpet with: “LA face with an Oakland booty.”
This is a line from Sir Mix-A-Lot’s track “Baby Got Back (I Like Big Butts)”, which refers to a woman whose face looks like she is from Los Angeles (primarily white), while her behind looks like she is from neighbouring Californian city Oakland, which historically has a high African-American population.
Urban Dictionary says about LAFOB: “Refers to a girl with a pretty face and a marvellous shapely ass.”
The actress has come under fire on Twitter for being racially insensitive, while others argue that this innocent comment has been blown out of proportion.
Blake is staying true to the lighthearted nature of her post and has not removed the image from Instagram.
