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?

Her critics are accusing her of appropriation and racial insensitivity.
Other critics brought up how she got married on slave plantation.
However, many are saying the criticism is too much of a stretch. She was simply quoting a song!
This critic says her comments on Woody Allen are problematic — not her Instagram photo!
And some aren't worried about what Lively does!
