Blake Lively blasted for Instagram 'Baby Got Back' comment

Blake Lively is under fire after posting an Instagram photo of herself at the Cannes Film Festival with a Sir Mix-A-lot quotable. She wrote, "L.A. face with an Oakland booty" from the '90s rap classic Baby Got Back.

Some have accused her of cultural appropriation and racial insensitivity while others says she is just having fun and quoting a pop song. Was her comment offensive or are people stretching her use of the lyrics too far? 

What do you think: Is this a #LivelyBacklash or a #LivelyStretch?
