What do you think??

Blake Lively is stirring up controversy, and all thanks to her latest Instagram post.

Sharing a pic of her gorgeous gilded look from Cannes on Tuesday, the baby bumpin' actress decided to jokingly caption it with a famous lyric from Sir Mix-A-Lot's hit Baby Got Back.

The side-by-side shot of the front and the back of her look was captioned with:

"L.A. face with an Oakland booty"

Not so surprisingly, many commenters were upset with the 28-year-old!

One IG user responded to her post with:

"Another day, another rich white woman using women of color's bodies as a punchline and commodity- yet everyone defends her and calls it confidence. But hey who the f*ck am I to check her privilege! #WhiteGirlsDoItBest"

Some even tweeted, explaining their disappointment:

On the other side, there have been plenty of people backing Blake up! One Instagram user even commented in her defense, writing:

"Go, girl! 👏🏽👏🏽🙌🏽♥️ Women of all shapes & ethnicities are beautiful, are curvy, have booties (believe it or not!)… & she is OWNING her beauty. –What's not beautiful?… Being racist & using YOUR privilege to voice such hateful opinions… Heaven forbid people of all different races use rap lyrics on a damn picture. Oh no! The tragedy. If that's what you get butt hurt over, woo… Wish my life was as uneventful as yours & I had as little to actually worry about. 🙏🏼 Go on, Blake."

So, do U think she was being passively racist? Or did she do nothing wrong in quoting the lyric?? Let us know!
