Man Publicly Shames Woman Breastfeeding, Then She Finds The Photo And Publicly Responds

A man who publicly shamed a woman breastfeedingby posting a photo on Facebook was probably not expecting the woman herself to see it... and then respond.

But Conner Kendall did, after seeing the photo of herself breastfeeding in TGI Friday's, with the comment: "Could you at least cover your boob up?".

Kendall posted a photo of the man's shaming post and decided to take it upon herself to respond, revealing the man who took the photo was three tables away from her and a complete stranger.

***Please Read Everything (I know it's long, but it is very important)***Yesterday I was shamed on social media for...

On the Facebook post, Kendall wrote a lengthy explanation of situation and told everyone to "please read everything" on there.

She wrote how she saw the photo on social media and contemplated for a while about what to do, but now she wanted to reply.

Kendall gets the facts straight - she was in TGI Friday's with her son and was completely unaware of this man and the fact he was taking a photo.

She admitted that finding the photo was shameful for not only her, but for every nursing mother. It was soon deleted.

The mother wrote: "I was really very hurt by this act, because I was in no way bothering him, so what gave him the right to shame me?"

After she found his name, she sent him a private message which you can read in the above post, in which told him she was the person in the photo he uploaded.

She wrote to him: "I did nothing wrong, I turned away to latch my son and pulled my shirt back up when he was finished out of respect for others in the restaurant.

"If he had been screaming because he was hungry then I would be a bad mum for not feeding my hungry child."

Kendall went on to say his public shaming has actually given her a platform to advocate breastfeeding.

She wrote that he had "inspired her" into a call of action, before adding that she strongly wished he would educate himself about breastfeeding and what breasts are meant to be used for.

The mother said the man responded with a "very short, and what seemed to me, a very insincere apology in a private message. Never once did he admit his ignorance to the public."

Kendall ended the post by saying it wasn't the fact that the picture was taken, but it was done so in a way that shamed her child, herself, mothers, and the fact she was simply taking care of her baby.

Before finishing, the mother has urged everyone to hurry and share the post: "SHARE EVERYWHERE, POST EVERYWHERE, AND TAG EVERYONE, because this is not ok."

The post has had more than 90,000 shares and hundreds of comments.
