Gossip Girls star, Blake Lively, is dazzling the folks at the Cannes Film Festival but she had a red carpet snafu this week.

The superstar actress posted an Instagram split shot of the front and back of her gold Atelier Versace dress captioned with the lyrics to Sir-Mix-A-Lot‘s 90’s hit, “Baby Got Back” saying, “An L.A. Face with an Oakland Booty.”

Although she quoted a much-beloved rap tune about a man who loves a big ole booty, the post has generated more than 600-thousand likes and more than 18-thousand comments in just 24 hours.  Some people called her post racist and others coming to her defense.
