People Are Outraged Over This Video Of A Man Shaming A Mom For Breastfeeding


A man started shouting at a woman breastfeeding her child in a Target in Connecticut this week.

Jessie Maher filmed the man while he was shouting at her for breastfeeding in public. She starts the video saying,

Maher wrote that before she started filming, he said to her,

He repeatedly called her "disgusting" and told her to go feed her child somewhere else.

But Maher wasn't having any of that. As she filmed the man, several people came to her defense. Three Target employees and a few other women called out to defend Maher.

One woman said,

The man began to demand a refund because of Maher. Maher says during the video,

Target employees eventually escorted the man out and away from Maher. The video ends with a woman asking Maher if she's alright. She responded,

The women who defended her tell her they both have five kids, so they understand Maher's position and wanted to stand up for her right to feed her child.

Maher wrote in a follow-up post on Facebook,

All the people who stood up for Maher are setting a good example with that.
