You Won’t Believe What a Victoria’s Secret in Texas Told a Nursing Mother. SNL Had the Perfect Response.

Earlier this year, a 27-year old mother of two was told to go nurse her baby in an alley when she asked if she could breastfeed her baby in a Victoria’s Secret store in Austin, Texas. She politely asked if she could nurse her 4-month old baby in an empty dressing room; however, her request was denied.

Alright, so let me get this straight. A store that sells bras and lingerie tells a woman that she can’t breastfeed in public? Breastfeeding is the one of the most natural things for a mother to do but SNL had the perfect response in their ‘Weekend Update’ segment.

A Victoria’s Secret store in Texas banned a woman from breastfeeding her in son the lingerie store.

SNL had the perfect response…

“Apparently, they don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea about what breasts are for.”

Shortly after the incident, Victoria’s Secret issued a formal apology and indicated that they would inform their associates about their policy that welcomes mothers in their stores. Please share how SNL responded when a breastfeeding mother was asked to leave a Victoria’s Secret store in Texas with your friends and family.
