Hell hath no fury like women who catch wind of the fact that someone doesn’t appreciate the sight of them breastfeeding in public.
NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne, 31, learned that the hard way earlier this week when he launched a series of Tweets about losing his appetite after seeing a woman breastfeeding in the supermarket, according to Mediate.
The first Tweet said: Just walking through supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because I was obviously seeing things. I wasn’t!
But wait—there’s more!
Then he wrote: One boob put away one boob hanging!!! #nasty
Followed by: I don’t feel like shopping or eating anymore.
When a woman Tweeted he “reconsider his remarks” (or, rather, “Wow, you’re kind of a douchebag, where you propose that baby eat, the restroom? Would you eat in the restroom?“), he proceeded to call her a “dumb bitch.”
Kahne’s Tweets got plenty of “likes” from fans who saw them linked to his Facebook page. But the outrage seems to have come out on top, as he apologized on his Facebook page on Wednesday night:
My comments were not directed at the mother’s right to breastfeed. They were just a reaction to the location of that choice, and the fashion in which it was executed on that occasion. I respect the mother’s right to feed her child whenever and wherever she pleases.
What say you? Was it how Kahne said it that got him into trouble (i.e. “#nasty”)? Or is there simply no right way to say you’d rather not see an exposed woman breastfeeding in public? Or is Kahne just an idiot, period?
