People Need To Mind Their Own Business: Student Attacked On Social Media For Breastfeeding At Her Graduation
People Need To Mind Their Own Business: Student Attacked On Social Media For Breastfeeding At Her Graduation

A young mother who took a proud photo of herself and her infant during her graduation has received backlash from internet trolls for posting a photo of herself breastfeeding her child while dressed in her graduation gown.

Karlesha Thurman graduated from California State University Long Beach

She shared it with the Facebook page, Black Women Do Breastfeed and they posted the picture with the following caption: “Congratulations mama!!! Giving her daughter more gifts than one! Isn’t this beautiful?!” 

The internet trolls thought not and they started attacking her, calling her a hoe, attention seeker, nasty and more.

But Thurman proved yet again that she is a smart woman when she posted the following statement about her decision to breastfeed at this very important moment of her life.


“I found out I was pregnant my last semester of college, had my daughter one week into my last semester, she was my motivation to keep going, so me receiving my BA was OUR moment, so glad I captured the moment and so glad you shared it with the world so thank you again.”


Here’s a free education for those of you who think what she did was of poor taste and there’s ‘a time and place for everything”, the right time and place to nurse a baby is when the baby is HUNGRY.
