(NEW YORK) — NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne has apologized for ranting on Twitter after seeing a woman breastfeeding in a supermarket.
“Just walking though supermarket. See a mom breast feeding little kid,” one of Kahne’s tweets read. “Took second look because obviously I was seeing things. I wasn’t!”
Kahne later posted an apology on his Facebook page.
“I understand that my comments regarding breastfeeding posted on Twitter were offensive to some people,” Kahne said. “For that, I apologize. It was in no way my intention to offend any mother who chooses to breastfeed her child, or, for that matter, anyone who supports breast feeding children. I want to make that clear.”
