Blake Lively finally responded to the heat she received last month after the actress posted a photo of herself on Instagram in a sleek gold gown with the caption, “L.A. face with an Oakland booty.” A lyric from Sir-Mix-Alot’s hit song “Baby Got Back.”

One Instagram user slammed the actress, “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” Ouch!

But, the responses weren’t all vilifying, some adoring fans even came to Lively’s defense, including Sir-Mix-Alot himself. The rapper called her caption “a nod of approval. That’s was what I wanted. I wanted our idea of beautiful to be accepted.”

Lively herself went on Sway Calloway’s radio show to address the issue. “I never meant to offend anyone,” said the actress. “I was celebrating my body. It’s nice to have a nice curve and not look like you’re starving to death.”

Despite, all the chaos, the preggerzBlake is staying positive and evenannounced that sheandhubby, Ryan Reynolds are “official breeders.” The two come from very big families and want to have a full house of their own! So there — she wins.
