On Facebook, a mother is facing criticism after publishing a post that went viral threatening breastfeeding mums. The post was published in July 2018 by Carly Clark who said, “I’m not sorry – the next female that tries to whip her boob out to breastfeed in front of my kids will get a black eye, move that baby [because] I’ll punch it too #zerocare #why #inpublicletsjustshowkidsboobs #notmine.”
Her controversial post went viral and unsurprisingly received responses of outrage, anger and sadness as many expressed their disappointment in what she had said. Of the many who responded was Jessi Vogel who commented saying: “To see another woman with kids say that she’s willing to give the woman a black eye for feeding in front of her children – it really takes us a step back to have other women saying this.”
Another comment from an upset mother said: “What in the actual hell??! How do people – especially a woman – still have this kind of mentality???! How ridiculous!! We have been feeding our babies the way our bodies intended since the dawn of time.”
Carly Clark was confronted about her poorly written post, but she refused to apologise and added further “Do what you want, but I find it very immature that you as a mother would go out of your way to come to a place that you know I work at and breastfeed.” She clearly shows her anger towards women that breastfeed!
And she went on further to say “[I don’t care] who breastfeeds when my kids aren’t around. Pulling your boob out in front of my kids on purpose just to prove a point is simply represented by who you are as a person.”
The outcry of responses shared on social media criticising Clark’s post were not only expressed by mums, but also expressed by her employer!
Petsense, Clark’s employer fired her after her post stating “We absolutely would never condone violence such as was recently posted… This individual is no longer employed by Petsense. We sincerely apologize to all of those who have been affected by this situation.”
