Black Twitter dragged actress Blake Lively after she posted a photo of her ample backside on Instagram.com accompanied by the text: "L.A. face with an Oakland booty" from rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot's hit song "Baby Got Back".
Sir Mix-a-lot and his song have been back in the news thanks to Beyonce referring to her husband Jay Z's mistress as "Becky" in her Lemonade movie.
"Baby Got Back" popularized the term 'Becky' which certain members of the black community use as a euphemism for white women.
In a recent interview with the Huffington Post, the rapper said his song was the first that took the big booty concept mainstream.
“The black, female body was not accepted as the norm anywhere," Sir Mix-a-Lot told HuffPo. "For years, all you saw on television was overweight black maids or black women who would assimilate to white culture, as far as the look is concerned."
Sir Mix-A-Lot, whose real name is Anthony Ray, added: “I wanted to do something that was tongue-in-cheek but, at the same time, making a real point.”
Huffington Post -- “When I did the song, I wasn't trying to speak for women. Because I knew black women were proud of what they had. When women, like Trina stepped to the forefront, you’ll notice I curtailed my message. I didn’t have to speak anymore because the actual, African-American queens were speaking for themselves. Coming from a woman, it was far more powerful than coming from me. Coming from me, it can be confused as sexist. Coming from a woman you know it was real.”
