Melanie Dudley A Texas mom who was told to cover up while she was breastfeeding did exactly what she was asked, but it’s the way she did it that’s grabbing attention.
Melanie Libson Dudley was at a restaurant in Cabo San Lucas feeding her 3-month-old son, and on top of that, it was hot outside.
“A man within our party said I needed to cover up because they did not want to see my exposed breast. I was speechless and told my husband to hand me my cover and I put it over my head as a sarcastic gesture,” Dudley said.
Dudley’s husband snapped the photo seen ’round the world showing Dudley with the cover over her face instead.
The photo was then posted on Facebook by a family friend. It’s been shared more than 200,000 times and appears to have struck a nerve with people on both sides of the debate to cover up.
