A staff member at the courtyard of the Victoria and Albert Museum asked a London mom to “cover up” while breastfeeding her 1-year-old son!
Apparently, the woman had only flashed a “nanosecond of nipple”, and she writes on her Twitter account that she was a little bit dismayed by the incident.
In case you didn’t know, breastfeeding is protected by law in the UK (even in museums), as it is the oldest and one of the most natural practices known to humankind. To make it even worse, the incident took place during last year’s World Breastfeeding Week.
Victoria and Albert Museum issued an official apology to the mom on behalf of the director and the museum, as they got into the serious hot water with this one. The post by the mother that goes by the Twitter name Vaguechera went viral, and more than 7k people retweeted it. Check out the whole story below.
