Kasey Kahne Apology
Some folks didn't take kindly to his words about breastfeeding. Kahne eventually issued an apology via Facebook.
“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.
“In all honestly, I was surprised by what I saw in a grocery store. I shared that reaction with my fans on Twitter. It obviously wasn’t the correct approach, and, after reading your feedback, I now have a better understanding of why my posts upset some of you.”
"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."
