“Unbelievably problematic, using women of color’s bodies as a joke. I guess you just want people to know you’re racist and you don’t give a s**t,” wrote on Instagram user.

“She is using the bodies of women of color as a punchline and a commodity and I don’t blame them for being somewhat offended!” said another.

In spite of the blowback, Lively has yet to comment on the post.
