This Mom Had an Epic Response After She Was Shamed For Breastfeeding

Girl, tell 'em.

Whitney Hope was out shopping when her baby got hungry—so she did what any other mom would do: She fed her child. And because we (sadly) still live in a world that regularly shames breastfeeding moms, Hope was called out for something as simple and natural as nourishing her baby.

Hope made sure to find an empty spot inside the store and did whatever she could to be discreet, but apparently that wasn't enough. An employee from Dillard's, which is where Hope was shopping, approached the mom and informed that she "couldn't do that here." The employee sent Hope to the bathroom to feed her child—because apparently a bathroom is a great place for an infant to eat?

But this is where the story gets really enraging: Hope noticed that in the very same Dillard's store, there was a giant ad for bras that prominently featured a set of barely-concealed breasts. This inspired Hope to pose a question: "Why is it acceptable for a giant picture of boobs to be on the wall but I cannot feed my child?"
