DARTFORD, UK (WCMH) — A woman claims she was squirted with breast milk after she complained about a woman who was breastfeeding in public.
The woman was walking through a park in Dartford, Kent with her husband and son when she spotted the breastfeeding woman, The Daily Mail reports. The woman then asked the mother to go someplace place private.
That’s when she claims the mother retaliated.
“To the lady in Dartford Park who thought it was appropriate to breastfeed her baby whilst my child and very easily distracted husband sat nearby,” the woman posted on a Facebook. “I don’t think it was necessary for you to react the way you did just because I asked you to go somewhere private. Squirting me with your boobs was incredibly uncalled for. I hope you are ashamed of yourself.”
Many on social media quickly pointed out the woman is likely in the wrong. England passed the Equality Act 2010 which makes it illegal for anyone to ask a breastfeeding woman to leave a public place.
