VIRAL PHOTO: Graduate Breastfeeds During Graduation Ceremony

Posted June 11th, 2014 @ 5:03am by Chilli Amar


Karlesha Thurman has been getting a lot of attention after having her breast exposed at her graduation from California State University, Long Beach. But it's not because she was drunk or an exhibitionist or anything like that.

Karlesha simply took the time to breastfeed her 4-month-old baby during the ceremony and her friend happened to snap a picture of it.

But the controversy came when she posted the pic on the Facebook page "Black Women Do BreastFeed" and the FB group decided to post it separately.

Thurman says that most of the feedback she's received has been positive, even though there are a few comments sprinkled online like, "I do not care how natural breast feeding is, a college graduation is not the place … decorum, people," and "I never said not to be proud, but breast pumps exist for a reason! Middle of graduation is not the time to whip breast out."
