Kasey Kahne, NASCAR Star, Apologizes For Disgusted Breastfeeding Tweet

by at . Comments

NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne has kome under fire following a Tweet in which he expressed disgust at seeing a woman breastfeeding in a supermarket.

He has since apologized on his Facebook page.

Kahne wrote: “Just walking through supermarket. See a mom breastfeeding little kid. Took second look because I was obviously seeing things. I wasn’t!”

A minute later, he wrote: “One boob put away one boob hanging!!! #nasty” followed by “I don’t really feel like shopping any more or eating.”

Kasey Kahne, who finished the year fourth in the NASCAR standings, deleted the post quickly but not before it was reported and outrage ensued.

Thousands of people on his site left comments, many supporting the popular race car driver, but plenty more taking offense at what he wrote.

“You’re horribly sexist, Kasey Kahne, and your misogyny is really unattractive considering the number of female NASCAR fans,” one blogger wrote.

The 31-year-old responded on Facebook:

“I apologize. It was in no way my intention to offend any mother who chooses to breastfeed her child, or, for that matter, anyone who supports breast feeding children."

“In all honestly, I was surprised by what I saw in a grocery store. I shared that reaction on Twitter. It obviously wasn’t the correct approach. After reading your feedback, I now have a better understanding of why my posts upset some of you.”

Kahne also apologized in a Twitter post to one of the woman whom he’d called “a dumb bitch” after she objected to his breastfeeding comments.

Btw, sometimes babies will make it VERY difficult to keep a cover on during BF...and also maybe her nipple wasn't even showing. He was grossed out obviously because they weren't "porn star boobs" I wonder if he would find it nasty then? He isn't sorry.

Yuk at kasey...and other ignorant people. It's sad how many people even at and older age are ignorant. The woman wasn't showing her boob to please Kasey nor anyone else for that matter except for her HUNGRY BABY. That's why her boob was out, to feed her baby. I mean that's what breasts are for. They produce milk!!! Geesh some men, and what were they suppose to look like, two cement balls almost touching her collar bone? Real breasts don't look like that especially going through pregnancy and with age they will change. Hah and men they grow pregnant bellies with age and saggy everything...:o this guy sounds like some 12yr old who is like "boobies!!! Oh ewwwwww they're not perfectly round and up high" yeah right, he's sorry.

Ok, I myself am a woman that's about to have a baby and will be breast feeding.... But I think a little common decency on both sides would have been extremely important. One, she should have put a blanket or a bury rag over her shoulder and eating baby so as not to expose herself to perverts or children.... Two, he should have had the decency to not stare and look away... NOT post on twitter about how nasty it is. It is a perfectly natural thing, however people are not supposed to expose any private body part in public. With that being said a woman boob wether feeding or not should have been covered. That is my opinion.
