A row erupted when a woman didn't want her husband looking at a woman breastfeeding her baby in a public park.
A mum has been accused of “squirting” milk at a woman who asked her not to breastfeed in a park.
An anonymous poster recalled the incident in Facebook group Dartford Gossip, where they branded the incident “incredibly uncalled for”.
They wrote: “To the lady Dartford park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whist my child and very easily distracted husband sat near by.
“I don’t think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private, telling me to f*** off and squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for.
“I hope you are ashamed of yourself!”
However, people weren’t sympathetic, with one commenting: “I think there’s only one tit worth worrying about in this story and that’s the distracted husband!”
Another said: “I hope you're ashamed of yourself, her reaction may not have been the right way to deal with your ignorance, but she has every right to feed her child there, if it offended you that much why didn't you move?”
The ‘victim’ was actually breaking the law by asking the mum to move somewhere else to feed her tot.
Under the Equality Act 2010, it is illegal to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place.
