    Blake Lively has been in Cannes for the week promoting her Woody Allen film “Café Society” and screening her upcoming thriller “The Shallows,”. But the star has landed herself in some hot water over what several are construing as a racially charged Instagram caption. The line is a lyric from the 1992 hit “Baby Got Back,” and the actress, wearing a designer gown in the picture, seems to be attempting a joke about her pregnancy body. “Unbelievably problematic, using women of color’s bodies as a joke,” wrote one commenter. “How does she know about Oakland?” added another. Others jumped to the Gossip Girl's defense: ‘Man, that Sir Mix-A-Lot sure was a racist’…said no one [ever],” wrote one. “Keep on keepin’ on @blakelively!!!

Minnesota Republican Party Chair Jennifer Carnahan says Democrats have been calling her with threats and sending Facebook messages demeaning her with racial slurs in response to a racist post a Republican put on a Minnesota GOP Facebook page. The post, which made which racist comments about Rep. Keith Ellison (D-MN), has since been removed. Carnahan apologized for the post and says the person who made it on the 7th Congressional GOP Facebook page has been dismissed. The GOP post appeared shortly after Carnahan, a relative unknown in politics, was elected party chair on the fourth ballot defeating better known candidates such as former state Senator David Hann and state party Deputy Director Chris Fields. Following her election, Carnahan said the DFL is “going to have a really hard time calling us the party of racists and sexists. Look at who our party base just elected.” Carnahan is Asian. She was adopted from South Korea. Carnahan says the racist Facebook post prompted Democrats to contact her using Asian racial slurs. “They’re saying, ‘I’m a Democrat and this is what I think about you.’ And then they’re making very inappropriate… they’re using very derogatory racial slurs against Asian people. And it’s not OK,” she said on an interview on AM950 radio’s Mike McIntee Show. “So they think it’s OK because one individual made a mistake and I think we addressed in a very professional manner but the answer to that is to come after and send me Facebook messages throughout the past couple days with inappropriate racial slurs? And what does that say about the Democrat Party?” “I’ve been getting calls throughout the day today of people threatening me. And again it just, this is not a solution to making, you know, our country, our state, the people… better. It’s actually just very disappointing to me to see that happen.” Democratic Party Chair Responds Democratic Farmer Labor (DFL) Party Chair Ken Martin said he was also “disheartened” by the racial comments made to Carnahan saying there is “no place for that in our political discourse.” However, Martin said he sees a difference between an official post of the party and individual comments by people who may or may not be connected with a political party. The racist GOP Facebook post is not an isolated incident. In November 2015, the same CD7 GOP group made a racist post on Facebook and Twitter while Carnahan’s predecessor Keith Downey was chair. After that post, Downey apologized and imposed a social media moratorium on the district. Carnahan was asked what the Minnesota GOP has learned from this latest incident. “The biggest learning for us as a party is we need to be more mindful of how we’re managing our social media. Because when someone posts one thing, even if it is meant as a joke, or not even an appropriate joke at that, you know it gets out there.” Racist posts like those from the Minnesota CD7 GOP group and comments and actions from President Donald Trump that many regard as racist or sexist have contributed to an image problem for Minnesota Republicans. Carnahan says, “that may be the perception with some people.” But she says the perception that “Republicans are racist and sexist is just wrong. There are many people in this country who might have biases or may be unaware of things but, you can’t, you can’t pin that on one party.” That unawareness of what is considered a slur extended to Carnahan herself. During the interview she repeatedly referred to the “Democrat party,” which is regarded as a slur because the proper name is the Democratic party. Asked if she was aware of that, she paused for a moment, laughed and said, “Well it wasn’t intended that way.” Martin says he isn’t offended by Carnahan’s “Democrat party” slur even though he says the term is systematically used by Republicans as a “deliberate and intentional attempt to demean the Democratic party.” Martin says Carnahan is new to politics and she is “learning on the job.” Martin says he plans to meet with her on Friday to “welcome her to the club of state party chairs — the most thankless job in the state.” Asked about her solution for fixing Minnesota Republican Party’s racist image problem, Carnahan says, “Well again, it’s just getting out there and championing our values, presenting our brand in a way that will compel people to open their hearts and minds to what we stand for and who we are.”

Saudi girl's online post in miniskirt sparks backlash, calls for her arrest DUBAI, United Arab Emirates -- A young Saudi woman sparked a sensation online over the weekend by posting a video of herself in a miniskirt and crop top walking around in public, with some Saudis calling for her arrest and others rushing to her defense. State-linked news websites reported on Monday that officials in the deeply conservative Muslim country are looking into taking possible action against the woman, who violated the kingdom's rules of dress. Women in Saudi Arabia must wear long, loose robes known as abayas in public. Most also cover their hair and face with a black veil, though exceptions are made for visiting dignitaries. The video, first shared on Snapchat, shows her walking around an empty historic fort in Ushaiager, a village north of the capital, Riyadh, in the desert region of Najd, where many of Saudi Arabia's most conservative tribes and families are from. CBS News has not confirmed the authenticity of the following video clip -- which has been posted on Twitter -- but it appears to show the woman in a miniskirt and black crop top as many have described: Competing Twitter hashtags emerged, with one demanding the woman's arrest and another asserting that freedom of dress should not be a crime. Ibrahim al-Munayif, a Saudi writer with more than 41,000 followers on Twitter, wrote on his official account that allowing people to disobey the law leads to chaos. "Just like we call on people to respect the laws of countries they travel to, people must also respect the laws of this country," he wrote. Others defended her by posting images from President Trump's visit to Saudi Arabia in May, in which first lady Melania Trump and his daughter Ivanka, though modestly dressed in higher necklines and longer sleeves, shunned wearing a head cover or the abaya. Ivanka Trump's blonde tresses and attire sparked a Twitter hashtag during Mr. Trump's visit, with Saudi males commenting on her looks and referring to Mr. Trump as Abu Ivanka, meaning Ivanka's father. One Twitter user, whose post was shared more than 1,700 times, superimposed an image of Ivanka's face on the young Saudi woman's body, writing: "Enough already, the situation has been solved." Others wrote that had the woman been a foreigner, people would be talking about her beauty, but because she is Saudi, they are calling for arrest. The Saudi Okaz news website reported that officials in Ushaiager called on the region's governor and police to take actions against the woman in response to the video, without elaborating further. Saudi news website Sabq reported that the kingdom's morality police had corresponded with other agencies to investigate further after the video was brought to their attention. Social media is wildly popular in Saudi Arabia as a space to vent frustrations and gauge public opinion. With more than half of the population of Saudi Arabia under 25-years-old, the country's 30-year-old heir to the throne, Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, has pushed for greater openings for entertainment in part to appease the country's youth, but strict gender segregation rules and other restrictions on women's movement remain in place.

Selena Gomez sparks concern with cryptic Instagram post about 'rethinking areas of life' The 24-year-old pop star said she feels 'unauthentic' after a performance in Jakarta Pop star Selena Gomez has admitted feeling "extremely unauthentic" and "unconnected" to her music. The 24-year-old US singer said she needed to "rethink some areas of my life" in a message posted on Instagram after she performed to thousands of fans in Jakarta, Indonesia. She wrote: "Tonight I felt extremely unauthentic, unconnected to both myself and my music. "I've never really felt like my materials, wardrobe or a video could define me. I act on a moment and fear something that hasn't happened. "I'm stagnant, I stay still and don't just sit with myself first and ask, 'Is this where I am, wholeheartedly?' "I've always told the truth. I'm always true to my word, I've shown who I am but I need to rethink some areas of my life creatively and personally. Had to get that out." Gomez, a former Disney child star who famously once dated Justin Bieber, posted the message a day after celebrating her 24th birthday. In the picture caption, she added: "Not being negative about anything I've done. I'm grateful for every single moment I get here - Indonesia you were LOUD and clearly inspiring. Love you so much." Gomez has scored two top 10 hits in the UK - Naturally in 2010 and Come And Get It in 2013.
