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.
