NASCAR driver Kasey Kahne apologized Wednesday for a Twitter rant against public breastfeeding that ended with him calling a woman a “dumb bitch.” On Tuesday, Kahne tweeted that he saw “a mom breast feeding little kid” in a supermarket. Then he tweeted, “One boob put away one boob hanging!!! #nasty” and “I don’t feel like shopping anymore or eating.” When one woman tweeted at Kahne, calling him a “douchebag” and asking where he proposed the baby feed, he replied by calling the woman a “dumb bitch.” He later posted an apology on Facebook, saying, “My comments were not directed at the mother’s right to breastfeed. They were just a reaction to the location of that choice, and the fashion in which it was executed on that occasion. I respect the mother’s right to feed her child whenever and wherever she pleases.”
