Kasey Kahne Apologizes for Slamming Breastfeeding Mom on Twitter

Kasey Kahne Twitter breastfeeding remarks

Kasey Kahne apologizes for breastfeeding remarks on Twitter

Be careful what you say on Twitter.

NASCAR Driver Kasey Kahne is apologizing today for slamming a breastfeeding mom in a comment he made the other day, plus another tweet where he called someone a b*tch.

Oops.

On Tuesday, Kahne took to Twitter to express his disgust with a mom he saw breasteeding in the supermarket, including tweets that said: “Just walking through supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid. Took second look because I was obviously seeing things. I wasn’t!”

He added, “One boob put away one boob hanging!! #nasty” and “I don’t feel like shopping anymore or eating.”

In addition, he came down hard on Twitter user @KnittingRad, who came to the defense of the breastfeeding mama: “I hope someday you have a kid and someone tells your wife that feeding your child looks nasty.”

His response? “And your a dumb b*tch.”

He has since apologized on Facebook or at least his PR people wrote up an apology:

“I understand that my comments regarding breastfeeding posted on Twitter were offensive to some people. For that, I apologize. It was in no way my intention to offend any mother who chooses to breastfeed her child, or, for that matter, anyone who supports breast feeding children. I want to make that clear.

In all honestly, I was surprised by what I saw in a grocery store. I shared that reaction with my fans on Twitter. It obviously wasn’t the correct approach, and, after reading your feedback, I now have a better understanding of why my posts upset some of you.

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.

Kasey Kahne”

He also apologized to the Twitter user he called a b*tch, tweeting: “I wanted to apologize for saying what I said to you yesterday. It was out of line. If you want to talk more please DM me.”
