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.

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