(Scroll down for video) A woman took to Facebook, and complained that she was thrown out of a restaurant for drinking beer while breastfeeding.
The woman was looking for sympathy.
She wrote that she wants to organize a breastfeeding sit-in where mothers feed their babies publicly inside the restaurant.
However, Crystal McCullough never expected the heavy backlash she received from people. Many called her a bad mother for consuming alcohol while breastfeeding.
McCullough was at the Big Woody’s Bar and Grill in Virginia, with her husband and their baby to celebrate the purchase of their new home.
McCullough admitted that she breastfed her eleven-month-old daughter and sipped beer at the same time.
She said that she also had a shot of whiskey in front of her to consume after she was done breastfeeding her baby.
The restaurant owner said that he has no problem with mothers who breastfeed, and that they have supported breastfeeding at their establishment for years.
However, he said that customers complained and his staff were uncomfortable with the woman drinking alcohol while breastfeeding. His manager closed her tap so she cannot order more alcohol.
“I was in shock. I was so angry, and I was so upset because she’s my daughter, and she’s hungry. She needs to be fed. Do not mess with my daughter,” McCullough said.
While McCullough wants an apology from the restaurant, she caused a firestorm on social media sites.
