Baby Got Back? The Internet Is Angry at Blake Lively for Quoting Sir Mix A Lot on Instagram news

Blake Lively may be receiving decent reviews for her turn in Woody Allen’s Cannes-premiered Café Society, but her Instagramming is currently suffering some critical blows. Lively, sharing a split photo from Cannes Tuesday, harnessed the power of Sir Mix-A-Lot‘s 1992 classic “Baby Got Back” in the photo’s caption:

The Gossip Girl star’s decision to pair the ‘gram with that “L.A. face, Oakland booty” lyrical excerpt, however, likely isn’t having the desired effect. The internet wasted little time filling Lively in on why exactly the “Baby Got Back” reference, though a common misstep among celebs, was the wrong move:

The photo, which remains live on Lively’s Instagram with the caption still attached, also brings to mind previous instances of Sir Mix-a-Lot quotes gone awry. Both Katy Perry and Khloé Kardashian have previously used the “L.A. face, Oakland beauty” line on social media, though the immediate reaction to their Sir Mix-A-Lot nods didn’t quite smash into headlines:

Representatives for Sir Mix-A-Lot did not immediately respond to Complex’s request for comment.
