Sir Mix-a-Lot Responds to Blake Lively's 'Oakland Booty' Post

Blake Lively got some flack for saying that she had an “L.A. face with an Oakland booty” on Instagram and now rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot is responding to the comment.

The line is from the rapper’s song “Baby Got Back” and Blake used it to caption a photo of herself on the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival. See photos from that event in the gallery!

“For her to look at her butt and that little waist and to say ‘L.A. face with an Oakland booty’ doesn’t that mean that the norm has changed, that the beautiful people have accepted our idea of beautiful? That’s the way I took it,” Sir Mix-a-Lot told Pret-a-Reporter. “Now let me do this, as far as the critics are concerned: I don’t want to come off like, ‘Oh, he’s an Uncle Tom,’ because I’m not. If what Blake Lively meant by that comment was, ‘Oh my goodness, I’ve gained weight, I look horrible,’ if that’s what she meant — and I doubt that she did — then I’m with the critics. But no one in the world is gonna tell me that a woman that wears that dress is thinking that she’s fat. No, I’m sorry, it just doesn’t happen. It sounds like to me like she was giving the line props.”

“I think she’s saying, ‘I’ve got that Oakland booty,’ or ‘I’m trying to get it.’ I think we have to be careful what we wish for as African-Americans, because if you say she doesn’t have the right to say that, then how do you expect her at the same time to embrace your beauty? I mean, I don’t get it. I think it’s almost a nod of approval, and that was what I wanted. I wanted our idea of beautiful to be accepted,” he added. “I think now not only is it accepted, but it’s expected.”

    Bravo. so much overreaction to every innocent comment. Twitter millennials are the worst

  • CourtneyBettyEricLee

    Millenial feminists are second only to Donald Trump voters for being dumba$$e$

  • rubie

    Perfect Comment….anyone who is not blind or an idiot knows what she meant, she is so down to earth, I mean look who she is married too, really, people need to stop being so darn racist all the time….to be without lines is to be free and if you live with lines than you need to check to see if you are not a bit racist…..she looks beautiful and that’s what she meant…

  • millerz

    So glad he spoke up society is so hyper sensitive always looking to attack for the littlest thing and it becomes like a swarm of bees all trying to be “a part of something.” Be a part of something positive! People are so damn negative and sensitive it makes me what to delete all social media.

  • Sweetpea

    This reeks of Ryan Reynolds. Only he would think it funny as hell to brag about Blake’s ample backside like he won the damn butt lottery.

  • Kyle Millert

    Wow. I can’t believe people went off on her over that. I’m glad that dude made that statement. So rational and easygoing. She does look good with that backside.

  • She Bug

    I like that he gave a nuanced response. Sure, most people don’t have the attention span for it, they get off on ranting and feeling like an SJW. But I am happy that he took the time to give a real and thoughtful comment. Almost no one does that anymore, and the nuances are actually pretty important.

  • smmy33

    Lol says the person who’d vote for a crook, war monger & perpetual liar like Hillary Clinton and her rapist husband.

    Good thing Bill Clinton isn’t black, instead of protecting him the media would treat him the same as Bill Cosby.

  • Trent

    What a smart, thoughtful, nuanced response. I wish his words could be posted to the top of Twitter every time some new “outrage” stirs up the oversensitive SJW’s. Bravo, Sir Mix-a-Lot!

  • Sim

    Well, at least Clinton didn’t drug them. He showed that he had the guts to do a straight-up rape, and not some Cosby kind of thing!
    Give our first “black” president and his wife some credit for being old-school. Put some ice on that, racists!

  • ProfessorMumblewhore

    And a crush was born. ♡ He’s awesome.

  • Tommi

    It’s hardly a surprise. Killary is a weak candidate, an establishment insider and pro-Wall Street Corporate whore who cares only about the needs of Elite Wealth, and who flip-flops on each and every issue to curry favour as the current day needs require.
    The democrat establishment is hugely out of step with the electorate – they are intent on crowning Princess Hillary, while the majority of the average rank-and-file voters can clearly smell her greed, mendacity and un-trustworthiness.

  • Sweetpea

    Well..what did you expect? He likes…..big butts and refuses to pravericate about it.

    You just describe Trump-Drumpf to perfection. He is the elite and did you not just hear his plans for Wall Street?!?!! Those are his buds, and all you little people will be left in the gutter.

  • Kylimayrow

    He wouldn’t be defending her if he knew her history. This is the same slag that was romanticizing the antebellum era and the plantation lifestyle. Maybe she is just dense but I am giving her credit that she knows exactly what her intentions meant. Nasty slag.

  • parissucksliterally

    Well said, Sir!

  • http://uhaulmurders.blogspot.com Teraisa

    Glad to see the grown-ups talking. It’s aggravating how everyone is looking for the worst and correcting everything. I doubt she could say anything without pudding half of us off. It’s like we’re all narcissists and when someone–anyone–speaks it’s no longer simply they’re saying what they mean and meaning what they say, it’s about all of us. I miss life and news being simple–especially celebrity BS! Stop giving everyone so much power!

  • Kanye’s Sharted Pants

    Your roommate is a whore.

  • Roscoe

    Long live the booty!

  • Poison Ivy

    Yep. Real booties like Blake’s and not like the Kartrashian’s.

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    who she is married?

  • http://notly.ru/ Mapгapитa Бaбoвниковa

    You are such a racist poet.

  • Pelzchen

    What a thoughtful and intelligent person Sir Mix-A-Lot is!

  • Queenie01

  • The Absolute Truth

    The overreaction is from tabloid online media creating a non story. 20 yrs ago if a girl of any race had a butt would be called fat.

  • Nene Carp

    Yes! I don’t believe she meant anything offensive, people need to chill.

  • smmy33

    You liberal lies don’t work here, but go try. Trump’s money from property holding and real estate , not ” Wallstreet”
    While those the Clinton crooks “public servants” their whole lives are worth hundreds of millions, from setting up a “foundation” for big business & foreign governments to buy political access.

    90% WallStreet donations go Hillary Clinton. Along with all big businesses from hedge funds, banks, tech, Hollywood.
    Elites in the media, elites form both corrupt political parties and big business all want the Clinton’s crooks to win. She’ll pass every trade deal screw over America like TTIP, allow never ending cheap labour with open borders, keep the big industrial war machine going, expand Obamacare a win for Insurance companies. And make the last crappy 8 years look boom times.

  • Kris

    Very well said Sir Mix-a-lot!

  • Dimme

    So typical, progressives name calling and making everything political. The most random shit they’ll use to score political points. WFT does this have to do with Trump, not even him but calling millions of Americans dumbass’s cause they’re not a bunch of liberal sheep, yes let’s put only the second President to be “impeached” back in the WhiteHouse.
    Same with “black twitter” nothing to do but look for shit to be offended by, the Social Justice Warriors on the job. Both use everything for political gain and both are huge parts of the democrats party now. Sad

  • Erinn Virginia Charles

    Best response….i didnt think anything ofnit..except i love that dress and i love her hubby…not her so much she is blah …but she wasnt being racist at alll..wtf is wrong with folks lol

  • Visitor

    Good answer, Sir Mix-a-lot.

  • Visitor

    ” crook, war monger & perpetual liar “–Sounds like Trump.

  • Visitor

    Trump’s businesses are owned by Arabs–only his name is on them. You are fool, if you think Trump gives a sh&t about you.

  • YouDon’tKnowMe

    #1 Blake is trying to stay relevant. She isn’t.
    #2 Sick of the “racist” card played when someone covets a certain physical characteristic. Bravo for Sir.

  • Sweetpea

    Hard to romanticize life before indoor plumbing. Outhouses were the equalizer amongst the races back then.

  • Sweetpea

    It’s good to know we can take Blake Lively’s rear and turn it into a political discussion.
