Angry Mom: Kim Kardashian tweeted the following on Friday: "EWW Im at lunch, the woman at the table next 2 me is breast feeding her baby w no coverup."

Later, she tweeted: "My sister breast feeds! Its a natural beautiful thing, there's nothing wrong w it, but she covers herself, not w her boobs exposed."

HELLO -- Kim, you are condemning someone for having her "boobs exposed"?! You posed for PLAYBOY! Anyone who's seen your Carl's Jr. commercial has had more "boob exposure" than they would probably get from a breastfeeding mother. And what about the calendar you made for Reggie Bush?! I mean, COME ON!

You seem to have no problem with flashing your cleavage all over town, but when boobs are not sexualized, when they're seen as WHAT THEY ARE -- a food source -- then you have a problem with it?!

Yeah, she should grow up but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. You have yours and she has hers and I have mine.

Girl, seriously, SFTU!!!

When woman don’t have babies, then tend to think of their breast as sexual things. I know I did before I had kids. I still think of them in a sexual way and there is nothing wrong with that. Yes, we have breast as a way to feed our babies but to me they are also a big part of my sex life which my husband loves and I enjoy him loving.

I happen to agree with her. I don’t have a problem with breast feeding but I would rather not see it while I am out at a restaurant, eating lunch.

Mariah June 21, 2010, 1:02 PM

But the image above is totally fine to look at? Now, while you’re having lunch, when, if at all, is it not okay? Forget the whole sex argument, if you have no problem looking at breasts at any other time, then a breastfeeding baby shouldn’t bother you at all. Unless you’re looking too freakin’ hard and why would you be if it bothers you? A glance at a breastfeeding woman or noticing her out of the corner of your eye should not offend you in the least bit if you have no issues seeing breasts in any other situation!

Get over it! They’re breasts. Every woman has them and every baby needs the nourishment from them.

I think she is right. I am a mom and I think it is nasty to see a woman breastfeeding in public with her boob hanging out for the world to see. Kim did not get naked in a restaurant. No one wants to see that while they are eating. I wouldn’t do it. That is why there are breastfeeding rooms in women’s bathrooms, or feed the kid before you leave or bring bottles. WTH? You tell her to grow up, seems she is grown up. I think she also mentioned something about changing a diaper on a restaurant table? Wowza…I would never.

they didnt include the second part of her tweet…Kimberly Kardashian EWW Im at lunch,the woman at the table next 2 me is breast feeding her baby w no coverup then puts baby on the table and changes her diaper… maybe shes refering to the diaper changing at the dinner table??? Either way she’s noone to discuss her problems with boob exposure

You know what though, I don’t have to go out and pick up a playboy and am not forced to look at it. I don’t care to be honest but I do think it’s appropriate to cover up. I don’t understand this need by women to flaunt that they breastfeed. It’s nothing freaking special in my opinion. I have my cover up with me always and don’t plan to subject people to my breasts at all.

Kim K is a nasty girl.

MJ June 21, 2010, 4:58 PM

Wow,I am appalled at the amount of mothers on here that say it is ”nasty” to see a womens breasts, I feel sad that your children will have that same attitude.
North America is so twisted in that way.

Who the hell ”shows off” the fact that they breastfeed, as one ignorant commenter posted above, perhaps some babies do not like their heads covered up, would you? I sure wouldn’t.

I have been successfully breastfeeding my son since his birth nearly four months ago. I always try to cover up (out of modesty, not because I care what others think), but as he becomes more mobile and more able to control his movements, the cover is sometimes pulled off or pushed to the side. I don’t know how much longer I’m willing to fight with it. Some people might just have to get over it and risk the chance of seeing my son eat. Personally, I would much rather see a mother breastfeeding her child than I would some of the horrendous table manners people display in restaurants (talking with their mouth open, shoving huge bites into their mouth, dribbling down their shirts, et cetera).

Opinions are like assholes; everybody has one.

Mrs.Bluhm  June 21, 2010, 8:09 PM

Okay I have to comment on this one….it was left out that on the twitter update, Kim also mentioned that the lady after nursing, changed the babys diaper on the restaurant table!!! Eww!!! So maybe if the lady wouldn’t have been so inconsiderate and disgusting she wouldn’t have commented. And I do think nursing without covering up in public is a bit out of line, whether your a porn star or a stay at home mom passing judgement!

CB June 21, 2010, 8:24 PM

She is childish, self-absorbed, ignorant, stupid, and disgustingly whorish. I would’ve liked to hear that a baby threw up on her!

Angela Toller June 21, 2010, 9:15 PM

Kim’s posing for Playboy has absolutely nothing to do with a woman sitting in the middle of a restaurant breast feeding her baby without covering up! Then proceeding to change the baby’s diaper at the table, a detail you seem to have left out when quoting Kims tweet!
I am a firm believer in breast feeding but I also think you can do it discreetly without making those around you uncomfortable! As for the diaper change at the table…I’ve had to change my children while eating at a restaurant, it’s called a restroom! Get your lazy heiney up & find the one nearest to you! It’s amazing, most are now equipped with changing stations!
I don’t personally know Kim but it seams to me that people are always looking for a reason to find fault with people they aren’t! Especially people in the public eye! I think whoever had the issue needs to be a bit month
re comfortable with themselves & stop lashing out at others! It’s just not healthy!
Have a nice day! Be blessed & happy within yourself!

Proudmomma June 21, 2010, 11:17 PM

So, it’s Ok for her to go out and eat in public but not a baby? Should the baby just starve? Would you prefer to eat lunch next to a screaming hungry baby or a quietly nursing one? If you don’t like something you see just don’t look at it any more! It’s not that hard. It’s comments like that that make women uncomfortable doing one of the most natural and nurturing things for a baby. GROW UP!

NZ Mummy June 22, 2010, 1:41 AM

Seriously!?! I am SOOOO glad I live in New Zealand after reading the feedback on this! Although breastfeeding isn’t everyones cup of tea, no-one would ever think a mother feeding her baby is something that needs covering up! Anyone who thinks its comparable to pictures from Playboy is seriously messed up!
I truly feel for all you Mamas in the US.

MJ June 22, 2010, 3:44 AM

nz mommy, I agree with you 100% I live in Quebec and no one would dare think of telling a mom to cover up or anything of the sort, if someone is offended my a bit of side boob, it is THEIR problem not the moms, as mothers we should understand that babies rights come first and foremost, these ladies need to get a grip!

pmw June 22, 2010, 4:28 AM

Sorry, but I agree with Kim. Many of my friends breast fed their babies, even when we went to dinner, but they covered up out of respect for others. I have seen some ladies feeding their babies with everything exposed, and my friends, who breast fed, were very uncomfortable. In their words, “It’s not something that should be shared with all to see. They are putting their babies on display in an irresponsible manner.” I, personally, don’t want to see another person’s bare breast, not at dinner or other times. I am not saying hide in the bathroom or don’t feed the baby, I’m saying, cover up as I don’t want to see your boob!
AND, to change the baby on the table in the dining area is disrespectful of everyone in the restaurant. I don’t want to see or smell the odor when I am having dinner [or breakfast or lunch]. What about the person who sits next at that table? Rude!

Jaime June 22, 2010, 5:55 AM

I am currently breastfeeding my 3rd child, who is almost 4 months old. I am appalled by some of these comments. While I take every procaution to cover up, sometimes she just won’t have it. How would you like to have your head covered while you eat? I can’t pump so bringing a bottle isn’t an option. A ton of resturants aren’t set up to have a nursing area in the restroom and a ton don’t even have changing tables! What’s a mom supposed to do? Maybe I should just stay home until she is weaned.
