Golden girl of Hollywood, Blake Lively shared a split image of her on Instagram from the premiere of Cafe Society at 69th Cannes Film Festival. The 28-year-old actress came under the limelight for her racist caption ‘L.A face with an Oakland booty’.

A post shared by Blake Lively (@blakelively) on

The blond beauty was quoting a line from the 1992 Sir Mix-a-Lot song “Baby Got Back”. It refers to someone with a face that looks like she is from Los Angeles with a booty from the neighbouring city with African-American population.

Few fans got offended how a privileged and rich white women such as Blake Lively use such a caption.

Another tweep said: ‘So much privilege even GOOP feels uncomfortable’ – @mindamaureen  

It hasn’t been for the first time that the lyric was used as a caption. It has been used by Katy Perry and Khloe Kardashian earlier.

Khloe updated a split image revealing her Kardashian Booty.

However, Katy Perry tweeted the lyric back in 2012.

Meanwhile, the pregnant actress isn’t responding to any negativity. The actress recently stunned us with her looks at Cannes:
